    Did this WOD this afternoon while I had my baseball players do Fran.

    255/5, 275/6, 295/6, 315/7, 315/7

    First time with 3rep max on DL, was about to black out after both of the sets at 315. Handstand pushups are getting better, but still having to kip for most.

    Thank God… no Thrusters, and things I suck less at.

    taking another rest day since I am still fighting this sinus infection.

    GREAT nutrition class last night Russell! Lots of good info.

    155/30, 155/18, 155/5, 155/7, 165/8 (Box HSPU – 1st 2 rounds with knees, last three without – HUGE difference – thanks Russell!)

    AWESOME class last night! It makes such a difference KNOWING what the food you are eating is doing to your body.

    455 / 22
    475 / 15
    405 / 15
    425 / 13
    455 / 12

    Dropped back to 405 to practice form again. Something “clicked” with the simple statement of keep shoulders lined up over bar. I’ve heard it a million times but was always to concerned with my ass placement. Looking down for should bar alignment put my ass in the proper place and therefore made the lifts easier and safer. once again another example of asking lots of questions to your trainers if you don’t understand their cues and critiques. Don’t fake it and ask questions if you don’t truly “get it”. It has taken me close to 3 years to swallow pride and say “I don’t get it” but now it is the best thing I’ve done for my training in a very long time.

    We are blessed with great trainers that have the knowledge, the patience, and a deep desire for us to correctly perform the movements and to push us to reach our potential. Take advantage!

    185/1, 200/1, 205/1, 215/2, 225/2

    First time doing RX’d HSPU’s. DL’s felt great, could have added more weight but just worked on improving my form.

  9. Ron Wood says:

    Rx’d – 315/13, 315/10, 315/10, 315/6, 315/7

  10. Mandee Miller says:

    rx’d: 200/6, 200/5, 200/5, 200/1, 190/2

    At PMRF gym in Kauai, HI:

    Scaled with Box HSPU’s
    205/15, 205/15, 205/13, 205/13, 205/11

  12. Jake Naumcheff says:

    335/10, 365/9, 385(2)/10, 315/10, 315/10

    Aggravated my lower back on the set of 385 so I dropped to 315 for the last 2 sets. Happy with the consistency of the HSPU.

  13. Karen says:

    225/12, 225/10, 225×2 then 215/10. Stopped due to low back pain (long time injury (+15yrs) that is easily aggravated – deadlifts are notorious for irritating it). Roller and stretching to try to relieve pain.

    Went home and ran (yes, ran!) 4x400m at gingerly pace to see if my calf would hold up. No issues so I’m hopeful!

    Liked the gymnastics throwdown video! I’d love to be able to do a back tuck again!

    Thanks Russell and Dr Brasco for the nutrition workshop! As always, good information and good to have reminders, clarifications, or new insights to information received previously.
