I did my last lift at my current gym today. Kind of sad…..
I was able to completely finish all the reps on the last three lifts. First time I ever did that. Progress, I guess.
Here are the numbers.
Hang Clean/Front Squat/ Push Press (8×75, 8×75, 8×75)
Same weight as last time. For some reason these are still incredibly hard because of the push press. After I finished these my arms and shoulders felt dead.
Push up/pull up ladder (2/1, 4/2, 6/3, 4/x, x.x)
“Pull ups” are still a joke. I did add two to the fourth set so I’m getting to the point where I can actually do this lift completely. Maybe. That should be a goal at least. This is kind of embarrassing.
X Chop (8×12, 8×12, 8×12)
Nothing to these.
Thrusters (10xBW, 10xBW, 10xBW)
I got all these this time with minimal back pain. They’re still impossible to do consecutively without taking breaks. I feel like I’m really out of shape when I do these.
Medicine Ball Bicycle (20×4, 20×4, 20×4)
I did three sets of 20 for the first time ever. My back didn’t hurt as much but it was still really tough. I had to do these way too fast in order to get it done. I don’t know if I got anything out of the first two sets to be honest. I managed to do hold the reps on the last set a lot better. Hopefully I can improve on this next time.
