I skipped class on Thursday because I spent Wednesday night in the ER with the husband. He had the flu and needed 3 bags of fluids.
I looked back at some old workouts to see what I could adapt to do at home. I did 2 rounds of:
- 7 deadlifts at 155#.Â I think that’s a new PR for me so I was happy I could do it multiple times
- 11 pike pushups
- 10 knee raises
Then I went for about a 2.5 mile walk.Â After the husband came home that day he wanted to go for a walk too so we went about another mile.
Warmup this morning started with rowing.Â We did 20 seconds max effort followed by 10 seconds of easy rowing for 8 rounds.Â Then we did squats and pushups and situps followed by stretching.
We worked on hang snatches.Â This is taking the bar from mid thigh to overhead.Â I try to muscle it up too much instead of having good technique for using momentum.Â I did 68 lbs working on form.
Then we were tortured again.Â We had to hold a PVC pipe over our heads and do duck walks down the length of the jump and duck jumps back.Â We did 2 rounds of that.Â Ouch.Â That’s a much nicer comment than others that were made during this exercise.
The workout was 4 rounds of:
- 11 handstand pushups or 22 pikes
- 15 pull ups
- 30 double unders or 120 single jump ropes – Our trainer decided that we had to all do 30 double unders for the first round.Â I counted 30 valiant efforts at double unders or I’d still be there.
I did it in 17:40.Â That was a tough one.Â It doesn’t read too bad but it wore me out.
Stopping by quick before I log into my work network and your blog is considered taboo. 🙂 HA
So sorry to hear about your husband! That’s awful.
I’m cheering for you as you lift pipes over head and do your ‘cross fit’. Yeah you!
Sorry about your husband, hope he’s feeling better!
Great that your husband is well enough to take a walk with you — a night at the ER isn’t fun, especially if you have to miss your workout!
