We warmed up with rowing. We did 250 m then 10 pushups. At 500 m we did 10 pike pushups. At 750 it was 10 pushups again and at 1000 m it was 10 pikes.
My arms were still really weak and sore from Tuesday and today was another arm day. We worked on ring dips and muscle up transitions. Basically, I can’t do either one but my arms are sore from trying.
We also did 5 thrusters on the minute for 7 minutes. You hold a bar under your chin, squat, and then push it overhead while you stand up. I did 55#. The suggested weight was 75% of your body weight. I wouldn’t even be able to pick that up let alone get it overhead.
The workout was as many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
- 15 kettle bell swings – I did 35#
- 1 rope climb or 7 body rows on the rings – I did rows.
I did 4 rounds and got through 10 kettle bell swings again.
1.5 mile walk
We warmed up with a nice little 400 m jog while carrying a sandbag on our shoulders.Â Please read that will all the sarcasm that I intend.
Then we did lunges with the sandbags and did squats and overhead lifts with them.Â Good times.
Our strength work today started with back squats.Â We did 5 sets of five and I got up to 140 lbs but my form wasn’t great at that weight.Â Then we did Romanian deadlifts with kettlebells – 3 sets of 8.Â I got up to 35# in each hand.
The workout was 90 seconds of max effort of each other 4 exercises:
- Sumo Deadlift High Pulls – 35# kettlebell on the ground, squat and pick it up, stand up and pull it up to your chin.
- Sit ups
- Wall climbs – Start in pushup position with your toes touching a wall.Â Move backwards into handstand position.Â I get stuck halfway up.
- Jumping lunges
I did 83 total reps.
I can so totally sympathize with the sandbag on the shoulders, because I had to carry Stanley a 1/4 mile on my shoulders at the show last weekend.
Nice little jog and sandbag definitely would waken the sarcasm!
