Whoa! Been a long time since we did HSPU, but I was able to do 10 unbroken to start. Then went 6-4 and 4-3-1-2. I was feeling my back in that third round so I cut my workout after the round instead of doing a fourth. Time was 3:44 after 1, 8:53 after 2, and 14:53 at the end.

We got a set of pickleball rackets so decided to go try it out instead of doing the rest of our planned workout.

Every Machine

I’m really feeling my triceps from the first day of the chest program.

  • 400 BikeErg
  • 20 Plyo Lunges
  • 200m Row
  • 10 Pull-ups
  • 120m TrueForm Run
  • 40 Mountain Climbers
  • 200m SkiErg

This was a lot harder than expected. I did everything unbroken, wore grips for pull-ups and was able to finish four full rounds plus through the mountain climbers. I couldn’t get myself to push the runs otherwise I might have been able to finish five rounds.

That Feel

Partner Chipper

  • 40 Strict HSPU
  • 60 Burpee Box Get Overs (42”
  • 80 Single Arm DB Thrusters (30#)
  • 100 Pull-ups
  • 120 cal Row
  • 100 Push-ups
  • 80 Air Squats
  • 60 T2B (10-10-5-5)

We alternated doing 5s for the HSPU. I went unbroken for three of my sets and then had to do 2-1-1-1. Since we were keeping the box at one height we alternated between me doing six and Brandi doing four. For the thrusters we each did 10 at a time, five per arm. The pull-ups were 10 sets of six for me and four for B. These wrecked me! I got on the rower and couldn’t even pull 900 cal/hr my first time. But then I was able to catch my breath. We split those up doing six rounds of 12/8 calories. I did 10-10-10-12-12-10 push-ups while B was doing sixes. We each did 20 squats twice. Then to close it out were sets of ten toes to bars. Took us 34:14 and I was not feeling very good for the next hour.

I really was not excited for these workouts and sort of just wanted an easy sweat. I got going though. Finished 7+7. In the first round I dropped from the bar thinking I only had to do five pull-ups and then I went unbroken the rest of the way. Squats were slow and used as recovery to keep the other movements going.
