I am doing the Memorial Day Murph next Saturday (a military charity fundraiser), so decided to do a little taste of it this morning. I ran a mile on the treadmill and then did 6 sets of a scaled Cindy workout. For me this was 6 rounds of 25 squats, 15 TRX racked rows (rather than pullups) and 10 pushups. This added up to right at one-half of the full Murph workout - although I didn't run another mile at the end as I should have.
Riding my bike tomorrow morning early, I had planned to this morning but the incorrect weather forecast sent me to the gym. No matter, I had needed to test my rehabbing shoulder with the above workout anyway just to make certain that it is up for the challenge next weekend. It is

Broke my plateau with deadlift finally. Just needed a week off it looks like cause when I went at it fresh seemed like I coulda done more weight. Gonna try to break 300 for a 5 rep set in the next 4-6 weeks. It's definitely my weakest link so I'm keen to keep hitting it hard, but thats a double edge sword as it seems I've been not spacing the workout enough to recover completely.
