End of the Cycle

In at 10am this morning to finish out this cycle of the Rowing WOD and then shift focus to gymnastics. Moved around, did some bottom squat holding and pass-thrus to warm-up. Nothing crazy.

Rowing WOD Week 17 Session 2

10:00 AMRAP

  • Buy-in: 50 Burpees over the rower
  • MAX distance Row

First 25 burpees were done in about 1:05 and finished off the 50 in 2:44. Was pulling before the 7:00 minute mark. Legs just had nothing left after those jumps back and forth. Was struggling just to keep it under 2:00/500m. Was able to pick up the pace in the last minute or so. Make it 1,829 meters. There was some foot transition practice programmed too but I skipped it.

Looking forward to starting the gymnastics focus on Monday. Why not test something else? 🙂

Weighted Pull-up

A couple of guys at work had done a max weight pull-ups a couple of months ago and it sounded like fun for today. I went 25-35-53-62-70-75-80#.


4 Rounds

  • 2 Legless Rope Climbs (13′)
  • 8 Shuttle Runs (54′)
  • 40 DU

Felt like doing something else and have been wanting to climb the rope. Didn’t even set the clock, just did work. All successful climbs, but had to take some rest between reps. Missed once in the 3rd set of dubs.
