Fitness Tuesday

/ posted in: Fitness

Bless me readers for I have sinned.  It has been 2 weeks since my last workout.  I did some snorkeling on vacation.  I jumped up and down in the waves on the beach.  But my hotel did not have a workout facility and even though I have oodles of body weight only workouts pinned on Pinterest I was lazy.

Tuesday

First thing back I had to do a 400 m run while carrying a 25 lb kettlebell.  Ugh.

We did a 1000 m row for time.  I did it in 4:28.

Our strength today was 5 sets of three presses from behind the neck to overhead followed by three squats with the bar held overhead.  I did 63 lbs.

The workout was 5 rounds of:

  • 30 double unders or 90 single jump ropes
  • 10 hand stand pushups or 20 pike pushups

My trainer decided that since all of us can do some double unders (the rope goes under you twice each time you jump) that we all had to get the 30 double unders on the first round.  I managed to do it but it took a while.  I’m getting better at those as long as I don’t think about it too much.

After that I switched to singles with the occasional double under thrown in if I was feeling sassy.  I finished in 9:48.
