Smoking day today. It was absolutely gorgeous out—so pretty that I took the racks outside to squat in the sun. There’s something about doing this that makes it impossible to be disappointed in yourself. I didn’t make 5 on any of my 3 sets @ 285 lb on front squat (4, 4, 3+2) but I really couldn’t care less afterwards. The weather just carried too many good vibrations to worry about missed lifts.
I took that short memory into the weighted chins and turned out some good numbers. I got 2 sets of 3 at 106 lb before only getting 2 on the last. Then I was able to knock out 21 strict chins at BW. This is definitely my best total ever for this exercise.
Not long after Justin and I headed over to the River Park Levy where there is ample amounts of sand and space in which to play. We brought a few tires, some bumper plates, a rope, and a kettlebell and carved out the sprint above. WAY fun, this one. The sand made a big difference, especially on the rope pulls. Even running back between exercises felt tougher. Overall I felt very strong and well conditioned throughout both rounds of this sequence but am looking forward to the weekend. The Sactown Throwdown is tomorrow at CF East Sac so things should be kicked off right. Enjoy the video.
