Bail

Feeling a little sore from yesterday, mostly in the glutes from the single leg deadlifts and calves again from those ankle things.

Active Life – Single Leg Bias

Warm-up – 3 Rounds

  • 5 Sumo Inchworms
  • 20 Kossacks

I really like the stretch of these Kossacks.

Workout – 3 Sets

  • 15 Sumo Stance Good Mornings (115#)
  • 8 Eccentric Knee Flexion (30# DB)

Fifteen reps is a lot!

Conditioning

Planned to do this workout I saw yesterday on Miranda’s Instagram.

  • 100 Dumbbell Thrusters (35# DBs)
  • EMOM: Ascending burpees
  • “You do not have to do BURPEES on the first minute.”

I hate that shit where you get a free minute, but that is how it’s stated in the workout description, so I was going to follow it.¬†After starting with 25 right off the bat, I wasn’t feeling it, especially when I bitched out and only did 5 in the next minute. So then I did 10 in each of the next 2 minutes to get to 50 at 3:42 and stopped, with only doing the 1-2-3 burpees. Oh well.

Active Life – Back Max

10:00 (3-5 breath holds)

  • Ring Plank
  • 1 Arm Overhead Hold (70#, each arm)
  • 8 Romanian Deadlift (135#)
  • RDL Hold

Hell, I worked up a nice sweat doing these movements!

Long MAP

Instead of sticking to one movement like the Air Dyne for a long 30-40 minutes, I mixed it up with a Maximum Aerobic Power (MAP) workout. I used to do these more often, but in the 8-10 minute range and maybe a few of them with rest between. Went long today.

40:00

  • 1:00 Ski Erg
  • 1:00 Jump Rope
  • 1:00 Air Dyne
  • 1:00 Box Step Overs (12″)
  • 0:30 Ring Plank
  • 0:30 Single-arm OH Carry (25# DB, aka Waiter’s Walk)

I tried to switch at those times, so total work time was shorter due to transitioning. Nice and easy conversational pace. I wore the Garmin Forerunner 235 I bought last week and while it did a much better job tracking HR than when I rowed 5k, it still seems very wrong in some places.
