    Couldn’t let the killer hangover get in the way of a rare bench day

    1RM Bench: 215# PR
    Max reps 135# – 17 left some in the tank

    WOD: 2 rounds @ 75#. My overhead sucks.

    Open gym:
    Hip and shoulder mobility/stability stuff – bands, holds, KBs, parallettes and all that jazz
    Bent over rows

    1. JLee

      Anyone know a good mobility progression to be able to do single DB/KB overhead squats? Too tight in all the wrong places, I literally couldn’t do it with 10lbs

    2. That’s very rare to be able to do that without angling your torso in an extreme/unhealthy angle. I would shoot for getting a good torso position in squatting and OHS squatting before working on that

    3. Having said that, good progression would be “tempo” squatting. Go down VERY slowly with a light dumbbell overhead. As soon as you start to topple, try to pause that that spot for 5 deep breaths through your nose. you want to be very comfortable and stable all the way down.

      I am working on the same technique with overhead squatting and its very challenging.

  12. HSPU and c2B / Bar Muscle Up lesson w/ Coach Matt. Made a lot of progress!

    Did Yesterday’s WOD: Fran + Trop mile

    14:51 (6:30 ish on Fran and a shade over 8 min on the Trop Mile). really benefitted from having my ideal running weather too.

    thrusters felt great (I’ve never said that before). Pull ups felt ok and had to break them up a lot.
