Fitness Tuesday/ posted in: Fitness
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#. 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. 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. We did 20 seconds max effort followed by 10 seconds of easy rowing for 8 rounds. Then we did squats and pushups and situps followed by stretching.
We worked on hang snatches. This is taking the bar from mid thigh to overhead. I try to muscle it up too much instead of having good technique for using momentum. I did 68 lbs working on form.
Then we were tortured again. We had to hold a PVC pipe over our heads and do duck walks down the length of the jump and duck jumps back. We did 2 rounds of that. Ouch. 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. I counted 30 valiant efforts at double unders or I’d still be there.
I did it in 17:40. That was a tough one. It doesn’t read too bad but it wore me out.
