•walked to the gym and the usual warm-up.
•Sumo deadlifts : 6 sets of (3 x 130kg)
•Superset 3 sets: sprinter step-ups: 8 steps each leg holding 20 kg dBs, 12 x one handed rows with the purple band
• Superset 3 sets of: pallof press 8 x orange band, with GHRs: 10 x bird (first 5 reps holding a 5kg dB to my chest)
I attempted 140kg for the sumo but failed, although I think it was mental. Sleep has been ok, but not as rested as I would of liked to have been. Today my form was not the best, but once I got going the weight moved easily enough. In the last few sets I used the cue of “wedging myself in”, which really had helped. I need to improve my groin mobility… need to work on the “frog stretch” into my mobility routines.
Would of liked to finish off with some TGUs, but was short on time. BJJ later tonight.
