    B) 310

    D) 21:44 total (best :44 & worst :52 – avg :48s/rd – pistols and box jumps felt good. CTB were pretty much 5-2 & 4-3 throughout

  6. A. 275
    B. 315
    C. Used 36kg and for 7/9/8 on MU
    D. 10 rounds done- not sure on time, clock got re-set.

    – didn’t feel great today. Hands and shoulders were in rough shape. Muscle ups and pull ups smoked them both pretty good. Felt good to build up to decent weights in such a short periods of time.

  7. A) 235…Felt really heavy today. Just really rusty.
    B) 265…Also felt heavy
    C) 32kg and worked on dips and rows instead of MUs
    D) 12 sets avg 30-35 sec only did sets of 5 for C2B

    Overall been 5 days since I’ve trained and diet has been off. Just needed to get the first workout out of the way.

  8. A. 215 (matched my clean PR)
    B. 265 (96%), failed 280 (102%), but it was sooo close.
    C1. 36kg
    C2. 3,1,0 – these were really tough for me today
    D. 18:28 (12 sets, 7 CTB) averaged 0:28-0:30/set, so maybe I did 13 sets cause the numbers don’t add up? Only further proof that I’m bad at clocks/counting.

    This is either a hang clean PR or a match. It’s been a while. I had to work for this one.

    B. 255
    I went right from the clean to heavy singles here. I thought I would be ready to squat after the hang cleans. Maybe the CNS was all out of whack. Adam – I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

    C. 32kg
    3, 3, 4

    D. 12 sets with 7 C2B
    :38, :36, :38, :38, :36, :39, :38, :34, :40, :37, :41, :36

    1. Because the hang clean is so quick, you might not have been ready for the long eccentric of a front squat (especially since you are tall). I’d work on controlling the descent on the bar as you warm up the FS, so that you don’t just “drop” under it like you might on the clean

  10. A. 245#, took a few whacks at 265#, close but no cigar.
    B. 255#, had 275# but felt it going forward so I bailed, these definitely felt really heavy today.
    C. 15×3 @ 36KG
    4-5-4 on MU, first set felt bad.
    D. Did 10 sets, hands were close to ripping. About 40-45 seconds a set.
