My shoulders and wrists are sore from the handstand walking and my traps are really sore from so many cleans.
- 10/10 Kroc Rows (25#)
- 10 Weighted Step-ups (24″, 25#)
- 5/5 Single Arm DB Push Press (25#)
- 10 Alternating DB Hammer Curls (25#)
- 30s Hollow Hold
Did two rounds plus the Kroc rows and 7 step-ups.
We had 10 minutes to work on handstand related stuff (hold, press, walk), so of course I practicing my walking. And yet again, the programming spends a good portion of class fatiguing the movement most important in the conditioning piece. I feel like they are trying to trap you! Maybe this stuff is going to pay off in the Open, but just seems so odd and is completely different from any other program I’ve seen. I didn’t make too many attempts with so many handstand push-ups coming up and I was tired from last night, but I did get out to 8-10 feet a couple of times.
- 500m Row
- 14 DB Step-Back Lunges (50# DBs)
- 14 HSPU
My goal was 1:50-1:55 on the rower, unbroken lunges, and break the handstand push-ups into 8-6. I figured rounds would take around 3:30. Screwed up the order right off the back and did my 8 HSPU before the lunges. Whoops! No I didn’t do them over again. 😛 I finished at 17:54, so my guess was pretty damn close because a 3:30 average would have been 17:30. The lunges were much easier than I expected. Pushed hard to keep my pace on the rower. Here are my splits:
A 1:50 pace equates to about 1,200 cal/hr, so it’s good to know I can stay in the ballpark during a longer workout. If I would have started each row better I think I would have been much closer after the first one too.
Dumbbell Curl 21s
- 7-7-7 @ 15#
- 7-7-7 @ 20#
- 7-7-7 @ 20#
It was time to bump up the weight from 15-15-20 and the third set was pretty tough. Even with this bonus work I was still done before the 5pm class started.
Ready for the rest day!
