Week 4 … and what would it be?
17.4 would be a repeat of last years workout 16.4
this made me happy, as it wasn’t the unknown. We had done this workout about 5 weeks earlier and I knew where I was at. I knew all the movements, so I was excited to go again. Gary decided to do it on the friday night and got 31 HSPU out. That night he hatched a plan for me, to pace through the HSPU which would be the weakest part of the workout for me.
Saturday morning I gave it a shot, and the plan worked pretty well until about the 35th HSPU where they started breaking down. I ended up getting 50 HSPU out, and I failed my last two reps … so I felt pretty confident that I had hit my capacity for where I should be. I was also proud of the improvement from the previous year. I dont think I even got 20 HSPU out last year … so I was super happy about that progress. I decided not to repeat it. Probably my most satisfying workout of the Open so far.
