Limit Your Burpees

Took a complete rest day yesterday. First one since February 6th. Drove me nuts, but I needed it. Shoulders were pretty wrecked from Sunday.

Strength

Shoulder Press

  • 10×45#
  • 6×75#
  • 6×95#
  • 6x6x115#

Recommended at 65%. Fast quality reps. Felt good not to struggle.

Conditioning

Wall Ball “Kalsu”

  • EMOM: 5 burpees (including @ 0:00)
  • Accumulate 100 wall balls (20#, 10′)

My goal was sub 6 and I made it. It’s a little fuzzy, but I think I was at 22-38-53-68-83 for my minutes, so I had 17 to go at the end. Knew I didn’t want to do another 5 burpees for a rep or two, so went a little faster through that 5th minute of burpees and sped up the wall balls to finish with time to spare in 5:54. Good mental battle with this one.

Midline

5 Rounds

  • 10 Sit-ups
  • 20 Russian Twists (53# KB)
  • 30s Plank

Went all unbroken. Took me 8:25.

Something I’ve realized in the last few days is that after cutting back my volume leading up to the Open, I’ve been feeling great during workouts.
