2021 AGOQ Events 1 & 2

Still no golf yesterday with the cold weather, but I did get a little time to tear apart more of the structure from the sunroom. I took today and tomorrow off work because I knew I’d be useless with the AGOQ happening. Tried to keep myself busy today with errands, small tasks around the house, and a nap. I got my garage setup early for event 1 so I could get it done shortly after the workouts were released at 3pm.

Warm-up

  • 5:00 BikeErg (2,230m)
  • 20 PVC Passes
  • Hanging
  • 10 DB Push Jerks (25#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 5 DB Push Jerks (40#)
  • Handstand Hold

2021 Age Group Online Qualifier Event 1

5 Rounds – 20:00 Time Cap

  • 15 HSPU
  • 15 DB Shoulder to OH (50# DBs)
  • 15 cal Row

My plan was 3×5 HSPU, 8-7 or 9-6 with the dumbbells, and around 1,200 cal/hr. That quickly changed on the second round of dumbbells. For the most part after that I was doing 4 sets on both movements. My average pace on the rower was probably about 1,150 cal/hr, expect for the final row when I sent it. Finished at exactly 19:00 and was wrecked!

Got to Next Level Fitness around 5:30pm.

Warm-up

  • Lay on GHD
  • Duck Walk
  • Partial Rope Climb
  • Toe Touches

2021 Age Group Online Qualifier Event 2

20:00 Time Cap

  • 60-50-40 GHD Sit-ups
  • 6-5-4 Rope Climbs (15′)
  • 60-50-40 Pistols

I hadn’t been on a GHD in well over two years and hadn’t climbed a rope using legs in about that long as well. For someone who has to be careful with low back tweaks, this is a scary workout I’m not conditioned for. My goal was to be smart and not get hurt. Wearing lifters for the pistols really affected the rope climbs and not in a good way. Just a nasty workout all around with so much interference on the low back in all three spots. Got through 28/50 pistols for 209 reps.
