    A. 85-105-115-125-135. 20# more than 2 weeks ago!! Really like the strength programming.
    B. With the hubby. 14:35. 125-145-145. That bike might be worse than burpees

  2. Crysta P

    A1. 55, 60, 65, 75, 85 (new 5RM) – should have gone heavier sooner.
    A2. 1.5 pood – I do appreciate the tips Matt.
    B. the Matt special hellish leg burn workout w/ Susan (because the squats and squat cleans yesterday weren’t enough fun for my legs…lol…)
    DL @ 105, 115, 135 and AB – 14:55-ish
    I do appreciate the supportive yelling that I need to go heavier on my DL, you shamed me into adding 20# to my last set. I was unable to keep the bleeping AB at 65rpm, probably closer to 55 because more than than made me want to puke. I truly hate the AB which has made me actually like burpees and rowing…
    Thanks for a good workout Matt, I may or may not be able to walk later today, enjoy the comments.

  4. Jason


    A) 95, 115, 125, 125, 135 PP – 2 pood swings, Probably should have started heaver on the PP, but I notice I come up on to my toes often and wanted to make sure to stay back.

    Worked on some Dubs prior to class.
    A. 105-115-125-130?? not sure those were the weights. Didn’t have time for 5th round. American swings with Black KB.
    B. DL-145-155-170 (again not certain this was my progression, but it was my ending weight). Around 12 cal each 2min on AB… which was TERRIBLE
    Attempted max deficit HSPUs but my shoulders were done– at Competitors class Saturday I did a few with a 1 inch deficit. Tonight, I barely could kip 1x with the yoga mats.. no deficit!!
    Skipped the T2B.
    3 rounds 15 GHD and a reverse plank for about 40 sec holding a 15 pound weighted ball.
