Keep Planking

I’m sore all over. Ankles, legs, abs, chest, biceps, shoulders.

Active Life – Single Leg Bias

Warm-up – 2 Rounds

  • 10 Squat Press Outs (25#)
  • 5/5 Pistol Negatives on a Box

Workout

  • 5/5 Front Rack Box Step Ups (24″)
    • 45#
    • 75
    • 95
    • 115
    • 125
    • 135

The workout says to find a 5 rep max per leg, which could be different. I didn’t feel like going for a true max with something like this. It could be dangerous with no good way to bail, especially in my garage with the car in front of me. For 115+ I rested 30 seconds between legs. Right leg was always first. Not sure if it affected the left much, but left always felt weaker. Not sure I would have made it with 145 unless I compromised my back.

Conditioning

6 Rounds

  • 40 Double Unders
  • 10 Dumbbell Hang Power Clean & Jerks (35# DBs)

Missed too many dubs. Unbroken with the dumbbells. Finished in 8:20.

Active Life – Back Max

10:00

  • 15s Plank
  • 15s Side Plank (Right)
  • 15s Plank
  • 15s Side Plank (Left)

Are you serious? I didn’t expect to last, but made it unbroken. I did switch between elbows and hands – 2 rounds elbows, 2 rounds hands, 2 rounds elbows, 2 rounds hands, 1 round elbows, 1 round hands. That was a challenge, especially in the last few minutes when my mat was soaked with sweat. My core seemed ok. It was my shoulders burning in the last couple of minutes.
