400m run

2 x each:

20 froearm to instep lunges
15 hip extensions
20 abmat sit-ups
15 ring rows
15 push-ups

Deadlifts

10x135
8x225
3x315
3x5x435

Thrusters

10x65
8x115
3x155
4x215 (couldn't control the bar back to rack position after 4th rep)

Weighted Chin-ups

10xBW
5x25
3x5x75

Hitting 435 for sets should give me an implied PR somewhere in the 540 range. Nice! My last set of 210 was pretty shaky last week, so I had a feeling that I might fail on thrusters this week. Chin-ups were smooth.

Just didn't have the juice for the DL's today. Looks like I'll repeat 435 next week before starting the new program. Thrusters were rough, but they were rough last time at 210. Guess I'll give 212.5 a shot next week.

I had planned to switch back to low bar today, but there was an abrasion on my upper back right where the bar should sit. Just didn't have the juice on the last set of bench, and I have no idea what happened on the second set of chins.

Today

400m run

2 x each:

20 forearm to instep lunges
15 hip extensions
20 abmat sit-ups
15 ring rows
15 push-ups

Deadlifts

10x135
8x225
3x315
5x435
2x435

Okay, this was supposed to be the final week of this progression, and it was actually kind of a coin flip. I'd actually toyed with the idea of last week being it and scheduling a vacation for this weekend, but those plans ended up not being in the cards. After struggling with a weight on the deadlifts that I've already done twice, I decided to scrap this weeks progressions and do some long light metcons this week. I'm going to start a modified Conjugate CrossFit program next week, so I might as well rest up for my first round of 1 rep max squats on Thursday. I rested for 2 hours, then:

5k row

20:42.4

This is only 34 seconds over my PR, which isn't bad for not having done much metcon or rowing in several weeks and being about 4 hours removed from lunch.
