I drank WAY too much coffee yesterday and I had a headache for most of the morning. I had planned on going to Southie today to workout but the closer the time got the less interest I had in going.
I NEEDED to get my Deadlifts in so I decided to mesh them with a little conditioning + bodyweight strength stuff.
6 sets of 2 reps @ 320lbs
5 rounds of
10 Kettlebell Swings
5 Deadhang Pullups
3 Handstand Pushups to a deficit (45lb plates)
The deads are getting easier and easier! Week 3 baby!
Even though I didn’t work out yesterday I played around with a couple of different things during the day. Kettlebell snatches, muscle ups and deadhang pullups.
I tested my Deadhang pullups and my result was sad – 11. I have fallen victim to what I am constantly trying to get others to not do. When I learned how to do kipping pullups I pretty much stopped doing deadhangs and when I learned how to do butterfly pullups I pretty much stopped doing kipping pullups.
I plan on working in a lot more strict strength work for the more advanced bodyweight movements for the next 3 weeks as I finish out this Deadlift program. I will add them in the same way I have in my last 2 workouts.
I am sure that by spending a little more time on it that it will have a lot of translation when I decide to use them (muscle ups, handstand pushups, dips, pullups) with a kip in a WOD.
