The World is Our Playground

My legs are tired from yesterday’s workout. We loaded up the truck at 10am and went to Elmer Lange Park, which is a couple of minutes down the road.

Warm-up

  • 100’ Monster Walks (lateral, then front/back)
  • 10 Monster Squats

Conditioning / Strength

* I Go You Go

  • Weighted Plyo Lunges (35# DBs)

The last time we did this our time was 8:37, with me using 30# dumbbells and Brandi taking the vest off part way through. I figured I’d bump the weight back up today and Brandi wore an 8# vest the entire time. I had to start breaking my sets on the way up at 14, but Brandi did every set unbroken. We finished in 8:43 with both of us doing harder versions, so that’s a big win!

  • 5 Muscle-ups
  • 10 Decline Pushups (feet on swings)

This park is much better than the school I went to for 30 muscle-ups because the swing set is at least a foot higher.

The muscle-ups felt really good and I never was in danger of missing any reps. Even my kip for the dip felt great. As I went for my last set I noticed the straps had slid closer together and the buckles had moved all the way down. The damn rolled up extra strapping was smacking me in the face on the last three reps! Here’s a video of that final set.

 

Conditioning

10 Sets

  • 70m Hill Sprint
  • Walk down

I never knew this hill was there otherwise I’d have been using it for years! This was a really fun session away from the garage.

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