Four Rounds is the Ticket

Got started shortly after 3 so we could get to work on countertops.

Warm-up

  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks

  • 30s Plank Knee to Elbow
  • 30s Tuck-ups (25# plate)
  • 30s Russian Twists (25# plate)

The sit-ups were much better using my AbMat and having my feet anchored under 40 pound dumbbells.

Really should have had feet anchored for those sit-ups and use my AbMat.

3 Sets

  • 40’ Tip Toe Farmer Carry (35# DBs)
  • 12 Calf Raises (35# DBs)

Conditioning

10 Rounds (each)

  • 10 Bench Press (115/65#)
  • 5 Strict Pull-ups (while partner is benching)

This was heavily inspired by a Mayhem Daily workout, which was partners doing 200 bench press with a penalty of 10 strict pull-ups for each break.

Brandi went first and we’d each take care of loading/unloading a 25# plate from one side of the bar with each switch. Made quick work of the transitions. I wore grips and moved them out of the way between movements. I wasn’t feeling great in warm-ups and even during the early rounds so I stuck to 2×5 on the bench with a very short rest. Then I did the last three rounds of bench unbroken. I did all singles on the pull-ups except for the final round because I was trying to get us under 15 minutes and did, finishing at 14:57. Really pleased with the way this workout turned out and we both enjoyed it.

Never Ending Got Overs

So much for yesterday’s workout being about recovery. When I got up out of the loveseat to head to bed last night my right shoulder was messed up! Felt better today after I got moving in the morning. Out in the garage a little after 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 400m Run
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walk
  • 80′ Monster Walk
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • 10 Landmine Curtsy Lunges (45#)
  • 5 Dumbbell RDLs (35#)
  • 10 Landmine Curtsy Lunges (70#)
  • 5 Dumbbell RDLs (45#)

Legs

3 Sets

  • 20 LM Curtsy Lunges (95#)
  • 10 RDL (50# DBs)

3 Sets

  • 10 Goblet Squats (62# KB)
  • 10/10 Lateral Step-ups (20″, 40# DB)

Might as well call this shit cardio.

Conditioning

3 Rounds

  • 40 cal BikeErg
  • 30 T2B
  • 20 Burpee Box Get Overs (24″, hands can touch)
  • 5:00 Rest

I knew this was going to be rough. I averaged about 1,200 cal/hr on the bike every time. I went 12-8-4-4, 5×6, 10×3 for my toes-to-bars in the respective rounds and wouldn’t you know it, the smaller sets were the fastest because I took almost no rest between the sets. The burpee boxes seemed to never end. My round times were 6:08, 6:08, and 5:56.
