These days I would say that it is rare than I am genuinely excited for a workout but today was one of those days. Usually I am dreading it, or nervous, or sometimes both but not today
20 Squat Snatches @185lbs -5:21
30 muscle ups – 7:39
2 of my favorite movements! I was psyched to do the Squat Snatches a little more as I have never done that heavy for reps before so I was curious to see how I’d do. I would like to have gotten under 5mins considering I had 10 done in 1:33 but I didn’t have it today. I made sure on each rep that I didn’t pick the bar up until I knew I would make it. There were a few dodgy reps but they were ok for the most part.
I expected to do a little better on the Muscle ups but I think I approached it wrong. My plan initially was to do 3 sets of 7 but after my first 7 I only managed 4 in the second set. After that it was 2′s + 3′s + eventually 1′s the rest of the way.
I would have been better off to have done a max effort in the first set then rest 1 min and grind out the rest that way I think.
Either way this is a PR on this workout for me by almost 2 mins.
