On Friday I woke up early to beat the heat and teed off by 8am, walking 18 holes. Yesterday I drove back to Saginaw. When I got home the heat index was 96 and rising! Due to the heat and I don’t really take many true rest days in the summer (I walk 5-6 miles on the golf course of my “rest” days) I decided not to exercise. WHOOP said I still wasn’t recovered this morning and I didn’t get enough. Went to open gym at 10am.
No B.S. Bench Press
- 12×215 (MAX)
Nice to have a spotter for a true max rep set. Beat my previous best, which was 9.
3 Cycles – E3M (2:00 cap on each section)
- 5 Rounds
- 2 Strict Pull-ups
- 4 Hand Release Push-ups
- 6 Lunges
- 15/10 cal Echo Bike + 30 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
- AMRAP Burpee Box Get Overs (48/40″)
On the 3rd cycle, I got the final lunge done just after the 2:00 buzzer rang. The bike and wall ball combo was the worst. I had a good pace on the first round of bike, but after that cruised. Was able to do 30 unbroken wall balls for the first two, but couldn’t hold on and only managed 12-13 for the 3rd round. I did 15-13-14 burpee box get overs. Pretty brutal workout with the humidity.
After mowing the lawn in the evening (still 80+ out) and having a low WHOOP recovery score for 2 days I decided not to do rowing intervals.
