Out in the garage during lunch.
Year of the Engine – Rocket Race
- 15s Airdyne
- 30s Rest
It doesn’t work trying to do 15 second intervals on my rower, so it was an easy choice to do this on the bike. Well over 100 RPM and I was getting faster throughout. I had 175 calories after 10 rounds, 356 after 20, and 432 to finish with 4.72 km. This is a far cry from Airdyne Hell though, which is 10 rounds of 15 seconds at 100% with 1:45 rests. I’ve done 250+ calories on that workout, which hurts really bad by round four.
Went to the gym at 4pm. The class workout had heavy snatches and cleans, plus a bunch of T2B. I wasn’t going to risk my back or tear up my hands two days before 20.5, so I came up with this. Warmed up with 2:00 Echo Bike for 20 calories.
- 8/8 Half Kneeling Bottoms Up KB Press (26#)
- 8 Lateral Raises (10# DBs)
- 8 Front Raises (10# DBs)
- 4/4 Dumbbell Hang C&J (50#)
- 8 Goblet Squats (50#)
- 20 Heavy Double Unders (Zeus rope)
I really like that movement with the dumbbells and the squats actually felt good too. I forgot hot terrible that heavy rope is though; you have to grip so hard to make sure the handles don’t fly out of your hands. I did 7 rounds + 2.
- 30 Alternating V-ups
- 30 Side Plank Jumps
- 60 Hollow Flutter Kicks
Deep burn in that first round of flutter kicks, but I held on to go unbroken with every movement in every set. Finished in 5:24, which is 47 seconds faster than back in July.
Nice to be done in less than an hour.
