conditioning is poor.
wasn't really pushing this to be conditioning, but was disappointed with how quickly i fatigued...like every other set.

Jump Rope- barely made two total minutes with misses. could not get more than 2-3 single leg hops when I tried.
Hold Squats x10 - fine
Fast Squats x10 - fine
Jump Squats x10 - quad burn/fatigue
135 Squat x10 - ok
Spiderman PU x10 - tiring
Birddog PU x10 - ok
UH Row 45x10 - light
UH Curl 45x10 - distracting right bicep pump
UH Cuban 45x10 - ok
OH Row 45x10 - ok
OH Rev Curl 45x10 - right forearm extensors and left forearm flexors goofy
OH Bradford 45x10 - tiring
Pull up BWx10 - ok
Knee Raise x10 - slow, grip lock
Hang 10 seconds - grip shot
Leg Press x10 - good stretch hams/calves

DB Row
60 x 12 (to failure)

Chin Up
BW x 8 (to failure)

BB Row
135 x 7 (to failure)

Upright Row
45 x 15 (near failure)

I'm only good at the things I have been training and I haven't been training conditioning at all really. Since I have the tough mudder as a goal and conditioning will be key, i think i need to shift the focus of my training. What's hard is that whatever I focus on will cause me to lose ground in another area, so it's a conscious choice to move away from strength a bit to get in shape.

I learned something from this session and will build on it...

I don't think you have to sacrifice strength in order to get in condition JD!

One word "FARTLEK"

In 6 weeks it took my from cramping up 10min mile to sub 6 bw 230ish.
Started week 1 with the normal program then just kept modify it with longer durations sprint times. THIS WAS MY OWN MODIFICATION, I however later read that Fartlek has many variations. Hmm imagine that, I somehow modified this program which mimic technique that had already been established, natural progression to extend the sprint interval times just hadn't read it.

Assumicide: to make an assumption based on inconclusive facts.
Doesn't belong here but confident you'll make the connection JD.

You might be able to have your Mudder and Powerlifting progression too JD.

Thanks. Never had one, but I will bring back some stuff like tire flipping, etc. that worked for me before. Plus, there's lots of serious hills/mountains here!

Yeah, that's true...I don't mean "sacrifice" as much as prioritize. Either way, I'm fine with any trade offs since I'm overdue for getting back to single digit BF% and having respectable endurance.

haha. I actually planned on putting sprints into the rotation. I do get what you're saying. Thanks for the reminder and example.

That's till strong volume for "poor conditioning". Are you doing timed sets for bodyweight exercises? I think a couple of years back EDT (Escalating Density Training, I think) was making waves on the interwebs about increasing volume in fixed time.

Nice deadlifting next session as well.
