A: Jackie. 10:04 with a ~20 second interruption in the middle. Everything went pretty well except the pull-ups. For some reason I have digressed. Will be doing some strict and weighted over the next few months.

B: BSS Rx with 25lb DBs
Strict HSPUs x 8 Rx.

I think a lot of it is just bad timing between travel where I almost never have pull-ups as an option and I usually only hit 4 days per week so it seemed like I didn’t do any for a few months. I was just getting a good butterfly going and then hit a long stretch where I didn’t do pull-ups. Maybe I lost my groove.

6 mile hike. The site won’t let me post a picture. It was too roaring. Couldn’t finish the hike because the third falls was impassable. Had to reverse out and that way down the hike left my hips feeling it

Got a the rower and said nope. Mobility and core work

A. Jackie
7:20

B. Bulgarian Split Squats
3×8 @tempo
40, 50, 50

Strict HSPU
3x 8-10

These two movements are definetly my least favourite and hardest. The video Candy posted on the BSS helped BIG time. And on the HSPU I tried to focus on externally rotating the shoulders and keeping tension in the back. This also helped huge. The best the HS have felt in a long time.

In kgs: 85, 90, 92.5, 95 (5 kgs PR!), 95 (failed jerk), 95 (failed jerk). So, this was hard ?, I tried to focus on improving my jerk mobility, as I normally do something that’s more like half jerk/half press. Things got real in that second EMOM, I didn’t realise I was PR-ing my C&J but I suspected I was close to it so I wasn’t bothered… Read more »

I think you should still mix in HSPU negatives as part of your work toward getting them, no matter what % you can hit on this. Negatives should be used if they come up in the strength portion or as supplemental work after your regular training and not in the conditioning part which is when you’d use this 90 degree press or another sub.

Hi Lindsay,

Don’t sub strict for this workout. Instead either do jumping pull-ups or banded pull-ups so you can keep up the intensity and move quickly. Ring rows are ok but they really shouldn’t be done for time.

Whatever you choose, make note so that next time Jackie comes up – which is every few months – you can compare what you did and notice your #gainz!

Let us know how it goes!

Are you willing to consider some other subs for rowing? SDHP isn’t the most functional or safest exercise. Do you have an Assault Bike (or other bike)? Or are you able to run? If no to both, let me know and I can come up with something else.

The problem with these two is that I would like to find a sub that also work my upper body
