Prowler Flu

Today was ME deadlift day. We got to the gym to discover that they were refinishing the cardio room floors. This made for a very lightheaded workout, and we wound up leaving after deadlifting and opted to finish the workout at home with our toys...

A1. Dynamic Warmups

Squat pull x 10
Clamshells 2 x 10/leg
Deficit Broomstick deadlift 2 x 10
Foam roller work on my knees/quads

B1. Deadlift

3 x 5 x 45#
2 x 3 x 105#
3 x 155#
3 x 195#
3 x 255#
1 x 315#
1 x 335#
1 x 360#
1 x 385# this is what I will call an injury recovery PR :)

We felt like hell after this due to the fumes (Jess also ME deadlifted, and had the prettiest failed lift for a PR @ 330# that I've ever seen her do :)), so we decided to come home and play with our strongman toys!

C1. Strongman Medley

4 laps of the following:

40yd 300# tire flip
20 x 8# sledgehammer tire thwackin'
40ys prowler bear crawl push
some arbitrary amount of rest

I puked after lap #3, but sucked it up and did #4. My hands looked like this afterwards, I am so proud!

I gotta say it was a good day.
