Friday, August 10th, 2012 Workout
Today I was kind of looking forward to because I wanted to see how my muscle ups felt after a couple weeks off, and also the last two weeks I have been doing alot of work with strict pull ups with different grips. I am hot and cold with muscle ups, and today I had to do 50 muscle ups, and I believe in the past, this would have been a problem. I also had a short rest time, and also had to do a pulling exercise in between those muscle ups. I went through all the muscle up unbroken, and was pretty happy with this, and just worked through it. I also was somewhat happy with my squat cleans, because I worked in a heavy squat clean at the end, and it felt pretty good at the end @ 245 lbs, even with 45 muscle ups before hand. Also hit some thrusters for a 3 rep max, and I believe my old 1 rep max might have been in the 200’s…Felt pretty good on these, and I will take whatever I can get…
