“If you want a conditioning workout, do a conditioning workout.” – Scott Styles

I didn’t feel like going heavy yesterday.  So I thought I would try to push my conditioning a little.

Incorrect Breathing Squats 100K
I set out to do what I thought where breathing squats, one rep, one breathe, two reps (for grand total of 3), two breathes, 3 and 3 and so on. I was wrong but that’s okay, it was still hard. I decided to try and do a ladder, I failed at that cause it was a lot harder than anticipated
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Here I was planning on going back down to 5 but  I couldn’t get my breath under control. I could do more reps, but I wanted to try to do them with a steady breath so I set the bar down
16K KB snatches 3 X 10 per arm
Return to the bar 5 reps
16K B snatches 2 X 10 per arm
Return to the bar 4,3
16K KB snatches 10 reps per arm
Return to the bar 2,1
Now I wasn’t exactly running to and from the bar, just walking, breathing, trying to get things under control, but I wasn’t slacking either.

Romanian Deadlift (Dan John Style) 100K /Single pullup 5 sets

Standing Press/Back Jerk 60K
I was shooting for 5 sets of five on each. I was taking my last press and just dropping it to by back and going from there. At the end of tha back jerks I would just drop to bar and take a breather. That was much harder than expected.

I got all that done in about a half an hour. A good workout, my legs are feeling it a bit today. I figured I had a little time to kill so:
Dumbell Curls 35lb 3 X 10

That was it, I went home. About 45 minutes in the gym. A good sweat builder, breathe stealer and even a little bit of strength work.

    I’m running Feedreader local on my PC. I think when I boot it checks all my RSS feeds.
