Lighter to Keep up the Intensity

Worked on my cable pulley system this morning and then workout at 1pm.

Warm-up

  • Monster Walks
  • 10 Bench Press (45#)
  • 10 Pendlay Rows (45#)
  • 10 Bench Press (95#)
  • 10 Pendlay Rows (75#)
  • 5 Bench Press (135#)
  • 5 Bench Press (165#)

Strength

4 Sets

  • 5 Bench Presses (185#)
  • 10 Pendlay Rows (95#)
  • 5 Bench Presses (185#)
  • 2:30 Rest

Conditioning

20-18-16-14-12-10-12-14-16-18-20

  • Plyo Lunges (30# DBs)

Done I Go You Go style. Repeat from two weeks ago, but I decided to decrease from the 35 pound dumbbells I had used since Brandi was decreasing from 20# DBs to a 12# vest. I got a lot of rest last time, so with less rest I wanted to be able to keep up my intensity. Turned out to the the perfect weight because I almost failed the final two sets and was able to stay unbroken. We finished in 8:37, which is over 4:30 quicker due to B speeding up her reps with the lighter loading (she eventually took the vest off).

Midline

5 Sets

  • 10 Parallette Shoot Throughs
  • 20 Alternating V-ups

We did this I Go You Go as well, but not for time. I could feel the shoot throughs right away in the first set! Will be feeling those for a few days.

Need to finish up my pulley system and then probably mow the lawn.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
