I deadlifted up to 210 x 5 again. It was harder than last time, probably because I didn’t sleep well. I wasn’t sore or tired from anything else, but as soon as I started warming up by rowing 500m, my legs felt fatigued. Today I started a new training schedule of teaching classes at 7:30 and noon on Mondays and Fridays instead of the afternoons, so I kept waking up all night wondering if it was time to get up.
Today’s workout of the day: 50 double-unders, 40 sit-ups, 30 med ball cleans, 20 pull-ups, 10 handstand push-ups, 3 rounds for time. I used a 12-pound ball. For sit-ups following on my deadlift, I mixed up sit-ups, planks with hand lifts, and back-lying leg lifts. I don’t like mixing loads of sit-ups with deadlifts because I don’t like the ultra tired feeling I get in my low back from it. For my handstand push-ups, I put my feet on a 20″ box and did semi-inverted push-ups. You don’t get much range of motion that way but it’s nice to try something different. I should have done divebomber ones instead. Anyway, my time was 17:23.
