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

I did my Arnold presses seated.

  • 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.

3-6-10

I had a golf meeting on Thursday so didn’t end up doing yoga. Yesterday I worked on the hallway flooring for nine hours and was whooped! Took a little more than two hours this morning to finish laying the floor. Got out in the garage and warmed up with the PVC pipe.

I started out with a set of three unbroken pull-ups but then did singles every other round and usually did two quick singles, turned around and did the third. The push-ups were slowing me down the most. Got through 12+1.

Finally some nice weather this weekend so we’re going to put screen doors on, put out some bird feeders, golf nine holes, and cook up steaks.
