HRV: 100 (-2/green)
Regional Workout 2/3
In 7min Establish 3RM OHS (start at 135,185,225,255)
30 Burpee Muscle Ups For Time (7min Cap)
Notes: Got a lousy night's sleep last night. For one thing, there are still these birds that hang around outside my house and chirp loudly throughout the night, waking me up. I am going to have to kill these birds.
Body was still sore from Saturday's efforts and my hands were not 100%, but much better than yesterday and didn't leave much room for excuses. Did mobility for about 30minutes and then got to the OHS. Haven't done anything like this in a long time so I wasn't sure if I would start at 225 or 255. 255 is where I need to be but with my body feeling like it is, I figured it would be safer to start with 225 and then go from there. OHS felt pretty good though the legs were a bit tired today. Hit 225 and then 235 and decided to call it there. Third rep on 235 was a bit shaking and rather than risking it, I called it. I wasn't going to hit 255 which is where I would need to be but having a starting number is good for this year's training.
Wore my gymnastics grips for the muscle ups. I set the rings up outside since there is less play and more like the regional setup. Unfortunately, half way through, one of the loops came undone so I was fussing with that a bit. Stayed consistant in the pace throughout and was able to finish the workout pretty easily under the 7min cap. Decent result and if I were to do it again, I would have pushed the pace much faster. I just didn't know how I would feel in those last 5 reps. I felt very strong in the last 5 reps. I am thinking if I did it again I could probably get somewhere in the 5min range. Again, this is a starting number but I am happy with how the workout felt overall. Just got to keep plugging away this week.
