Free For a Reason

The workout at the gym is long cardio with core cash-out, so I decided to make my own version and stay home. Out in the garage at 1pm.

Warm-up

  • 400m Ski Erg

Didn’t really plan a warm-up, but I was going to use the treadmill for the workout and when I hopped on it, it slowed right down from my weight. I guess that’s why I got it for free! Seemed like the motor might just be having a hard time keeping up under load, which could be bearings or any number of things. Will have to fix it soon so I can get in some running throughout the winter. Hopefully it’s an easy fix.

Conditioning

6 Rounds

  • 400m Ski Erg
  • 1:30 Airdyne
  • 25 Burpees

My pace on the ski erg was < 2:15 / 500m and on the Airdyne I kept pretty steady around 72 RPM, which came out to about 42 calories or 0.55 miles. My burpees felt consistent throughout and were definitely the movement that raised my heart rate the most. Finished at 31:16, which was what I was looking for over 30 minutes.

Midline

4 Rounds

  • 10 Hollow Rocks
  • 10 V-ups
  • 10 Tuck-ups
  • 10s Hollow Hold
  • 1:00 Rest

First two rounds unbroken and then 2 breaks in each of the last two rounds. Finished in 6:32.
