Last night I was feeling wrecked after the workout, which didn’t even seem like much compared to some of the days we’ve had in this program. My shoulders were dead and my energy levels were sapped! Shoulders are still feeling it today and my back is about the same as it was yesterday.
- Step-ups (24″)
- DB Thrusters (40# DBs)
- 10:00 Rest
- 3 Rounds
- 500m Row
- 20 Burpees over Rower
- 100 DU
The first part was written with Assault Bike calories again (like Saturday) and 95# thrusters. I didn’t feel like doing that many reps with the 50s, so I scaled back to 40s. It was a good call because it kept me relatively close to Bryan who was using a barbell. Because of the pairing with thrusters we didn’t use weights for the step-ups, but did go for the higher box. I did my thrusters in sets of 12-9, 10-8, 10-5, and the rest unbroken. The 40s were much easier than the workout we did last week using 50s, where we went up from 3 and I had to break up the 15 into 3 sets! Legs were really burning from this combination with the step-ups though. Took me 11:49 to finish, which I was pretty happy with. I don’t feel I took too long of rests between sets.
Recovered pretty well during the 10 minute rest, but didn’t want to go out too hard on the row, knowing we were in for a long one. I don’t remember my split but I think it was over 1:55. The burpees were fucking terrible and never seemed to end. My double unders were pretty good, able to do mostly sets of about 20 and a few larger sets. My second row felt awful. I wasn’t paying close enough attention but maybe a 2:04-2:06 and then picked it up a bit on the final one closer to 2:00 I think. I could be way off on those estimates. Finished at 40:23 on the clock for a time of 18:34 on part 2.
Got a little lung burn from this bad boy. Haven’t done a metcon that long where I was constantly moving.
