How Many Did You Get?

Yesterday I walked 9 holes and mowed the lawn. I took a road trip today to get a complete set of dumbbells.

Now I need to come up with some type of rack solution for the garage and will probably reorganize a bunch of stuff.

We swapped workouts between today and Saturday due to rain coming tonight. Wouldn’t want to go to the park the morning with soggy ground.

Warm-up

Ran about 150m. Probably should have done more.

E3M – 5 Sets

  • MAX Muscle-ups / Pull-ups

My largest set of muscle-ups ever was 10 last February, so I had something like 12 in my head. Especially since I was only able to get nine unbroken in January. My mind wandered around five reps in, so I wasn’t sure where I was. Reps were feeling effortless for much longer than expected so I kept riding the wave. When I got done with that first set, Brandi asked how many and I cautiously said 15 and that it may have only been something like 13. After reviewing the video it was 16!!!! I was not expecting that. I was feeling my hands close to ripping in the other sets so didn’t push them too hard when I maybe could have done another rep or two. Happy to get 8-8-6-6 in those other sets, which made it 44 total for the day.

I’m so pumped! I guess all of the back work and our programming is paying off on multiple fronts.

Conditioning

3 Rounds

  • 50y Sandbag Carry (100/65#)
  • 5 Sandbag Squats
  • 50y Sandbag Carry
  • 4x50y Side Shuffle
  • 50y Sandbag Carry
  • 5 Sandbag Squats
  • 50y Sandbag Carry
  • 4x50y Run

Multiple adjustments today. Just before starting we decided to decrease from ten to five squats. It was supposed to be shuffles for all six rounds, but during that first set of shuffles we made the call to alternate with running. I thought shuffling might be a break, but it definitely was not. I dropped the sandbag after squats until my final carry. After my first three lengths of carrying I realized bear hugging the bag would not hold up so I hoisted it on to a shoulder and alternated sides each time. Finished in 19:17.

We skipped out on the planned hill sprints because that was brutal and it was a long day. Headed back to the garage and reorganized due to the new purchases.

I’m so excited to have a full set of dumbbells to replace my adjustable pair. I should do a gym tour video soon.
