I’ll keep my money, guns, & freedom, you can keep the “Change”

Objective: Strength

Warm-up: 4 rounds
Barbell Complex - 95, 105, 115, 125

Training (1) 1 RM Strict Press, 160

(2) 5 rounds
2 x Strict Press, 135
3 x pistols, each leg

(3) 4 rounds
10 x deadlift, 185, 195, 205, 215
3 x TGU, each side, 35
10 x dips

(4) 3 rounds
10 x swings, 45
3 x corkscrew, each side, 45
10 x ankles to bar

Bonus: I'm resting my finger injury and its raining. Time to improve my durability. Barbell Complexes really suck, in a good way. It takes a moment for my heart to go back into my chest at the end of a round. According to Rob Shaul, those numbers are decent.

My strength is about the same as last year, without doing very much direct training. Very weird. I can press about 90% of my bodyweight. Good enough for my goals. My legs were a little shaky from all the rucking. I cut #4 at only three rounds because I hit the 1 hour mark. The next session will focus on either on work capacity or power endurance.
