This was a birthday workout for Phil, who is an attorney, hence the name. And...apparently he's 49 as well!
7 Rounds for time of:
7 Deadlifts (Men 225 lbs, Women 155 lbs)
7 Lateral barbell burpees
My time: 11:33, Rx
This was a quad killer!! Got through the first two rounds and my quads wanted to just lock up and not play nice! I pushed through, though not nearly as fast as some of the younger, more fit people, but I got through it faster than I expected. All my deadlifts were unbroken. I suspect everyone's were, at this light weight. That was my motivating factor: get through the burpees and the deadlifts are gravy.
Strength today was Hang Power Clean
Set of 10 for warm up: 45 lbs
work sets: 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 at 55-65-70-75-80-90-100
I wanted to go a bit heavier and see if I could even approach the 135 they are doing in the regionals, but just didn't get there. On the 100 lb set, I had a good laugh at myself. I was keeping the bar so close to my body, I kept hitting my boobs on the way up. Yeah, they kinda get in the way sometimes. ;-)
