Sunday – This was the most productive Sunday I’ve had in probably over 1 year. This was because some crazy sh*t happened, meaning I was driving to an open house and the open house was cancelled because it went under contract the night before, so I ended up at the gym stupid early. So I decided it was worth putting some effort in to.

15 Minutes to find a 1 rep max snatch – I got 130#


5 rounds for time:

10 push jerk (135/95) – I used 85#

50 double unders

15 handstand push ups

12 toes to bar

I got 17:21

Monday – REST DAY! I always coach Monday mornings, so I quickly can decide if I want to be put through hell on a Monday. And Mondays ALWAYS mean squats days, so I almost ALWAYS don’t go back to the gym later that day. So I cooked instead. I’m pretty sure I cooked 3 things, but I don’t remember.

Tuesday – This workout was done at 8 in the morning. EIGHT IN THE FREAKING MORNING. That’s the earliest I raised my heart rate in probably 2 years. And it was miserable. Thankfully it was spent with my girlfriend Katie who is one of the perkiest people ever. And she kicked my ass bad in the workout. I wish I had an excuse, but it’s just because I sucked.

3 min Max Distance Handstand Walk (mats) – I got 7 mats total


Power Clean into 2 x Squat Clean into Split Jerk ( 15 mins)
Dropping between cleans is allowed.
I got to 135#


12 min AMRAP OF:

200m Run


30 KB Swings (70/55) – I used 45#

I got 3 rounds + 50m run


Push Press: 5-5-5-5-5. Add as you go. I got 115#

Between Sets:
5 x 5 Weighted Pull Ups / Max Effort Strict / 4 x Slow Negatives – I did 5 strict pull ups per round


For Time:

5 Push Jerk (155/105)

5 Toes To Bar

50 Double Unders

10 Push Jerk (155/105)

10 Toes To Bar

50 Double Unders

Thursday – REST DAY! Thursday was a travel day to San Diego. I landed, walked around Little Italy, showered since I hadn’t since doing the ice bucket challenge the night before, then grabbed some dinner somewhere in San Diego. I really had no idea where I was, ever.

Friday – REST DAY! I did a seal tour. Turns out they just bark a lot and push each other into the water. 

Saturday – REST DAY/DRINK DAY/EAT DAY. Workouts are overrated in a city that I could spend my entire time eating and drinking. So that’s what I did. Check out the blog tomorrow for my restaurant recommendations! I’m now in a sugar bloating coma, but in a good way.
