Was all the running:
- 800M Run
- 3 min Rest
- 400M Run
- 1:30 min Rest
- 200M Run
- 45 sec Rest
It took me just over 30 minutes to complete this routine. I’m still getting back into running and I’m so slow. But I did it and my hip did alright! A little tenderness afterwards but nothing that stuck around or impacted daily life. Thank goodness!
I worked on strength after class and was able to pull 155lb deadlift for 5. Whoo! Deadlift is my strongest movement and always improves my day when I get to do them.
8 rounds, 20 sec work 10 sec rest:
- Hollow Rocks (This is what it looks like)
- Back Extensions (Supermans)
- Burpees to plate (burpee with a jump to a plate)
I didn’t think I did all that well until I put up my time with everyone elses’. I was pretty much right in with the group with made me pretty stoked. Normally I’m the slowest (which is fine) but when I see that I’m in line with others then I know that I’m improving.
Ugh this was a rough one and got to me mentally. I tried not to let it but my score was so low and I let that get to me. Meh.
4 sets of each: 30 sec work, 30 sec hold
- Push Press – Hold is bar overhead
- Ring Row – Hold is upright position
- Pushup – Hold is in plank position
- Squat – Hold is in squat
So hard and I had to take a lot of breaks. I was able to keep the bar overhead for each 30 seconds but had to break after that before starting push presses again. I could not hold the squat for very long before needing to stand up. Every time a break was taken, 1 point gets subtracted from your overall total and that’s what got me in the end. I had to take the most breaks during the squat and that ate up my total points. Ah well.
On the upside, I did banded pullups today with only one band where I had previously been using two. So that’s some progress!
Our workout consisted of two AMARPS. It was definitely challenging!
1st AMRAP for 12:
- 7 Hang Cleans
- 7 Front Squats
- 7 Thrusters
I think I’m going to have to get some wrist wraps. My wrists fatigue so quickly causing me to need to take breaks. I could power through more squats and thrusters but my wrists tire out easily.
2nd AMRAP for 5:
- 5 Lateral Burpees (over bar)
- 5 Evil Wheels (Like this but using a barbell instead)
- 5 Snatch High Pulls
Whew! I was sweating buckets at the end of this workout.
DEADLIFTS! I was so excited to see this on the board!
- 5 Deadlifts @ 135lb
- 5 Handstand Pushups (That I modified)
- 1 Rope Climb (That I also modified)
135lb used to be my 1 rep max on DL and now I can do that for a workout. Whooo! Progress and gainz, I can see them!
After the workout we had to carry a 55lb sandbag for 400m. Which was much nicer than having to carry a 55lb barbell for that same distance.
This week definitely had some ups and downs and some moments when I started second guessing myself. But I powered through and am still seeing some progress which is exactly what I want. Slow by steady, I’m getting there.
