Too Much Caffeine

I had a solo round of golf walking 18 holes yesterday. Had to camp under a tree on the 9th for about 30 minutes and still finished in just over 3 hours.

Warmed up with a few reps of various movements and some PVC stuff. I had another (partial) cup of coffee about an hour before the workout and it was a bad idea.

Chest, Triceps, Shoulders, and Conditioning

I started on the movements and B started on the cardio parts.

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 10 Burpees
  • Partner B:
    • 10 DB Bench Press (20/35# DBs)
    • 10 DB Flys (15/25# DBs)

Much better weight choices for me this week. Tried jump up/back burpees in set two for the first time in awhile. Gassed me.

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 75 Jump Rope
  • Partner B:
    • 10/15 Banded Uppercut Chest Fly (red CS)
    • 15 Incline Push-ups (on bench, 5 wide, 5 normal, 5 close)

I messed up doing 15 reps of the banded movement on the first set, so stuck with it. The push-ups are really hard at this point.

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 10 Burpees
  • Partner B:
    • 8 Front Raise + Lateral Raise (5/8# DBs)
    • 8 [Seated] Arnold Press (12/25# DBs)

Stepped back and jumped up on every set of burpees.

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 50 Jump Rope
  • Partner B:
    • 10 DB Upright Rows (15/25# DBs)
    • 10 DB Around the World (5/8# DBs)

2 Sets

  • Partner A: 10 Burpees
  • Partner B:
    • 15 DB Skull Crushers (15/25# DBs)
    • 15 French Presses (25/30# DB)

Went back to step back/up burpees.

2 Sets

  • Partner A: 50 Jump Rope
  • Partner B:
    • 15 OH Tricep Extensions (rope on cable pulley, 27#)
    • 10 Diamond Push-ups

I wont 4-3-3 on both rounds of push-ups. We finished over four minutes faster in 31:53. Sitting here shortly after the workout and haven’t felt like this in quite some time.

Tri No More

Walked 18 holes yesterday because the weather was perfect and there was a chance we’d only be able to play 9 holes today.

Upper Body & Conditioning

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 10 Burpees
  • Partner B:
    • 10 DB Bench Press (15-20-20/50# DBs)

  • Partner B:
    • 10 Banded Chest Fly (blue CS)
    • 15 Incline Push-ups (on bench, 5 wide, 5 normal, 5 close)

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 10 Burpees
  • Partner B:
    • 8 Front Raise + Lateral Raise (8-5-5/8# DBs)
    • 8 Arnold Press (15-12-10/25# DBs)

I did my Arnold presses seated.

3 Sets

  • Partner A: 50 Jump Rope
  • Partner B:
    • 10 DB Upright Rows (12-15-15/20# DBs)
    • 10 DB Around the World (5/8# DBs)

2 Sets

2 Sets

  • Partner A: 50 Jump Rope
  • Partner B:
    • 15 OH Tricep Extensions (rope on cable pulley, 27#)
    • 10 Diamond Push-ups

This was worse than the tricep focused workout I did in Cancun and I could barely move my arms for days. We’re going to be feeling this one! We finished in 36:10.

Extra Humid

The forecast showed rain all day, so I didn’t golf, but they were wrong for the second day in a row. Maybe a good thing I didn’t golf though, because my back bothered me throughout the day. We did get some rain today though, which made it extra humid working out in the garage again.

2 Sets

  • 4 Openers (20s hold)
  • 10 Wall Slides
  • 10 Reverse Pattern on ball (5s hold)

3 Sets

  • 10 Seated Bent Over Single Arm + Single Arm + Double Row (25# DBs)
  • 10 DB Bench Press + Fly (25# DBs)

Then we did about 15 minutes of banded golf mobility work, making use of the Crossover Symmetry bands.

Only Arms

I walked 18 on Monday and Tuesday. Didn’t workout Tuesday because B wasn’t feeling well and I decided to spend some time working on a shelf instead.

Warm-up

  • 20 PVC Passes
  • Shoulder Stretching
  • Arm Circles
  • 10 Toe Touches

Arms

3 Sets

  • 12 Incline DB Curls (25#)
  • 12 Tricep Pulldowns (60#, rope)

3 Sets

  • 12 Barbell Curls (55#)
  • 12 DB French Press (60#)

3 Sets

  • 12 DB Bench Press (60# DBs)
  • 12 DB Chest Fly (30# DBs)

Brandi wasn’t feeling well, so we ended it there and I got back to work on a project for the living room.

High Rep Dumbbell Bench

My back is feeling much better. In the garage just after 11am.

Conditioning

E80S – 10 Rounds

  • 250m BikeErg

Was taking me 21-22 seconds. Much harder than I expected.

Chest & Midline

I warmed up with 10+10 @ 20 pounds.

E2M – 3 Rounds (alt)

  • 10 Chest Fly + 20 DB Bench Press
  • 30 alt Side Crunches + 30 Reverse Crunches (ankle weights)

This was alternating every two minutes between the two supersets. I kept to one set of dumbbells for the bench press and double the reps because Brandi was handing the me weights after I laid down on the bench so I didn’t tweak my back getting down in to position. The really high reps was tough!

Hopefully I’ll be able to mow the lawn later, but it’s raining again now.
