I was feeling ok after the Open WOD today and saw that tomorrow’s WOD doesn’t have strength work, so I figured I could get in a quick home WOD. I’m trying to work my push-up endurance and squats (strength and speed) always need work, so I came up with the following.
- 10 HR Push-ups
- 3/3 Pistols (alternating)
What’s the time domain you ask? Keep going until you have to break the 10 or 6, moving from one movement right to the other.
I finished 8 rounds and 7 more push-ups, all barefoot. Some of the pistols were pretty ugly and I fell back while standing up a few times, but I’m counting them without having any shoes on. When I failed the push-up, time was 6:12 for 87 push-ups and 64 pistols. My best time for 100 hand release push-ups is 5:42, so I’ve either improved a ton since January or found a new strategy for doing high-rep push-ups.
