I wanted to start this blog off with a barbell strength workout and then incorporate the barbell into a WOD. I used the grey cerakote Legend Bar for the squats and switched over to the hard chrome bar for the WOD. After a light cardio warmup I got into the workout.
Back squats building to a heavy set of 5 reps
135#, 165#, 185#, 205#, 225#, 255#
10 rounds for time
3 power cleans
I finished at right around 8 minutes and was pretty spent afterwards. My times probably get better when I'm working out with a partner but I was OK with it. Gotta get ready for Murph next month so this was a good one to start preparing!
