Cardio Thursday

If I had gone golfing we definitely would have been wet. Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

2 Rounds

  • Row (30s easy / 30s hard / 30s easy)
  • 30 Double Unders
  • 15 Push-ups
  • 1:00/1:00 Calf Stretch

Was worried this many push-ups would affect the 125 coming up in the workout, but seemed fine.

Conditioning

25:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 17 Calorie Row
  • 25 Sit-ups
  • 50 Double Unders
  • 25 Push-ups
  • 200m run

I scaled back the row calories from 20, which is a bit insane. Going in I thought I’d do 15, but felt good in the first round so went with 17 and was able to get it just fine each round. Excited I was able to keep a high pace on the rower, over 1,500 cal/hr almost the entire time and even over 1,600 quite a bit. After getting off the rower I had just enough time to walk over to my AbMat and sit down by the time the next minute started. Never missed a dub and went 10-10-5 for every set of push-ups. Even my runs felt good and I was able to sprint the last one.

I have a love/hate for these long cardio EMOMs. They can be brutal but seem to be doing a lot for my fitness and mental side.

Mobility

  • Quad smash with a kettlebell

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
