Strict Improvement

Yesterday I went down to my brother’s and helped install flooring all day. Didn’t get home until almost midnight and was exhausted! Cut the lawn this morning, made a step for B to get up to the outdoor pull-up bar, and we got to the workout around 1pm I think.

  • 20 Plyo Lunges (20# DBs)
  • 50s Sandbag Hold (100#)

Didn’t run a clock for this one and kind of ran it as a partner workout, so B started with lunges, I did crunches, and then we switched. Then I held the sandbag while she burpeed and we switched. It was really hot out behind the house and it took a lot out of me.
