UnKillable Kleinhound 2: This time he's more unkillable-er

Threshold run today

10 minutes nasal breathing pace
32 minutes threshold pace
10 minutes nasal breathing pace

A touch over 10km, which ended up being a 10km PR without feeling close to a max effort and also shows me how slow I generally run anything over middle distance :joy:

Pr is a pr. Take them where you can!

Okay I doubled back on the high bar as my one true love is the low bar squat, plus form feels different in the legacy lifters so I need the practice

Day 3
A. Cleans 3RM 8RPE (100kg) then 85% x3 (85kg)
B. Squats 5RM 8RPE (180kg) then 90% for 2x5/8 (160kg)
C. Deficit RDL 3x8 (100/110/110)
D. Deep ROM leg press 3x10 (120/140/140)
E. Calf raises 1xERP

Happy with the session. Will take a few weeks to get into the groove of low bars in these shoes. Feel more power out of the ground but the elevated heel makes me go deeper into the hole and changes the rebound a little. In the long run I think it’ll be awesome

And so you should be. Super solid squatting mate

Also all my running metrics are trending in the right direction.

Obviously the estimated distance times that my watch/phone spit out are just that, estimates, but much like 1RM estimates and bf calipers as long as the measurement is heading in the right direction that’s the important thing

I may be a kindred spirit? “Love” may not be the word I’d use, but low bar squats are most definitely my favorite lift to perform, and to watch others perform. nice squatting, sir.

Just browsed through a couple weeks worth of posts and see that you’re still a freak of nature. I noticed you wrote “paused clean + 1 squat clean” for one of your complexes. Does that mean you normally do power cleans? With those quads, I assumed you’d be a full clean kind of guy.

I used to pretty much power clean everything until I couldn’t, but these days I’m being much more deliberate about doing full cleans to reinforce technique and also get some extra quad stimulus

Day 2

A. CG bench 5x5 (95kg)
B. Strict press 5RM (67.5kg) 2x5/8 (57.5kg)
C. Elevated Bent row 5RM (110kg) 2x5/7 (92.5kg)
D1. Fat grip incline bench 3x10 (50/60/60kg)
D2. Pull ups 3x10 (big stretch at bottom of each rep)

Fat grip bench is awesome for incline as it creates an extra inch or so of ROM and gave me a great stretch. Press slowly creeping up. Row strong, and reps all clean with a big stretch at the bottom

Tempo effort into cruise

2 min warm up
1 mile fast pace (5.41)
2 min back off
30 minute nasal breathing cruise

Felt pretty good to really open up. Pretty close to a max effort though.

So you’re saving us some taxpayer dollars now, by not needing your own body armor when on patrol. Beast mate, keep at it!

:rofl: I don’t know how much ballistic protection I’d get out of them, maybe a rubber dart from a Nerf gun
