AB 10 Min For Max Cals
*Record AVG RPM and Wattage

124 cal – ave watt 285 / RPMs 58

Not a PR…hit 129 on 5.30.17. Was at 61 cals half way through and mentally gave up a little because I didn’t feel like I had a “push” in the second half of this one. Got it together and kicked it in with about 2 min left
+
A1. Sissy Squats + Reach 2 reps each arm x3

wow I am bad at these. Watching the video I am obviously having a lot of trouble leaning back/not keeping my torso vertical


A2. Banded Ankle Dorsiflexion stretch foot on 45lbs Plate 2 min each ankle x3

completed, felt great

A3. FMS Step Overs 5 Reps each leg x3

Hard for me to tell if these look any better or not?

130, 160, 135, 160, 145, 170

B1. Push Press 6-8 Reps rest 1 min x4

85×8, 95×6, 96×6. Super light, as this was a little tough on my wrists. Also, towards the end of my time of doing lots of Oly lifts, I had issues with my R clavicle getting really beat up from my front rack position. The PP is probably the first time I’ve felt it in over a year. Looking in the mirror now, it doesn’t look swollen but just something for me to keep an eye out.


B2. Tempo Lean Away Pull ups 3 second lean away AMRAP rest 1 min x3

3, 2, 2. I have a tough time controlling myself down through the entire ROM


B3.Wall Facing 1/2 Way Down HS Hold against Wall Accumulate 30 seconds in as few of sets as possible rest 1 min x3

I didn’t video these because I was using my phone as a timer. According to my friend, I was going down more like a “quarter” than half way down. Found it really difficult to have any elbow bend and not arch my back.

306 watts, 310 watts, 318 watts, 313 watts, 323 watts, 316 watts

So…not super successful here. I don’t feel like I can hold sustainably around 320. I can hold around 300, I can get up to 330-340 but I can’t really hang out there, I tend to bounce around. And I worry when I get up around 330-340 that my legs are gonna blow up on the next interval
