Unfinished Business

Enjoying my vacation, so I lazed around all day. Didn’t even get dressed until 6, so went to the 8pm class.

Warm-up

3 Rounds

  • 1m V-ups
  • 1m Plank
  • 1m Bicycles
  • 1m Flutter Kicks
  • 1m Russian Twists (35# KB)
  • 1m Rest

This was a doosey! It’s been awhile since it was this hard to hold a 1 minute plank, but I did it each round. I didn’t realize how sore my hamstrings were until those bicycles. I guess the abs got a good workout yesterday with the Zercher squats.

Strength

5×3 Floor Press

My shoulders are still feeling a little weird from the hour of Insanity with the weight vest and my back is still messed up, so I wasn’t sure how this would go. Went 135#, 155#, 175#, 195#, and 215# for 3 reps each. That was my goal for the day. Since we had plenty of time, Brent decided to go for one more set and hit his, so I said “what the hell” even though 215# was far from easy. Loaded up 225# (my previous 1RM) and squeezed out the 3rd rep. That’s even better than my bench press 3RM, so I’m convinced I have a distinct disadvantage in the bench because of my long arms.

WOD

5 Rounds

  • 30 HR Push-ups
  • 20 Kroc Rows (60# DB, 10 each arm)
  • 10 Ring Dips

I can’t remember the last time I failed to finish a WOD. I wasn’t really expecting to have a 16 minute time cap either since some of the times on the board were over that. I’m going along thinking I might be able to get it done under 20:00 and Cari says we only have 1 minute left! I finished 5 rounds and 5 of the push-ups. Arms were just fried from doing 6 sets of floor press. I figured the push-ups would kill me, and they sure did. After round 1 I was struggling to do 5 at a time. I also know I was in trouble when I couldn’t even do the first 10 ring dips unbroken. But I didn’t have to resort to using a band at all, so that’s good. I think there were only 6 or 7 people all day that finished this one.
