Not exactly the workout I want to see when I’ve been trying to heal a tweaked calf for the last month and have had to baby a shoulder for over 3 months. But here we are. At least this workout isn’t a back breaker.
5:00 BikeErg (2,309m)
20 PVC Passes
3×10 Calf Raises
Shoulder Band Mobility
40 Lateral Hops
40 Front/Back Hops
10/10 Single Calf Raises on Step
10 Jump Rope
10 Double Unders
4 Wall Walks
I felt pretty good in warm-ups. My calf and shoulder both felt good with the movements.
The plan was to do a knee push-up on all wall walks to take some pressure of the shoulders and that worked really well, especially with the standard. I only missed one double under to start a round and every other break was me stopping on purpose for a rest. I stuck to sets of about 30 most of the workout. In my round of 150 I thought I miscounted at 80-90, so I actually did 10 extra reps just to be sure I got them all. So my tiebreak time ended up being five seconds before I actually stopped doing the double unders there. Only had to reset twice on the wall walks for moving a hand before my feet were on the wall, so not too bad. I finished the 15 and 150 and then got 3 more wall walks for a score of 377 and a tiebreak of 14:18.
Interesting workout for sure. Didn’t feel like I rested too much anywhere and my breaks with the double unders were good. Happy not to have missed after not doing any jump rope for over a month.
Since I’m workout out at home I’m recording all of my workouts so I can still register and compete in the Open, possibly making it to the 40-44 Masters Quarterfinals.
Of course I had to come back and do some time split evaluation.
I’m not a fan of redoing Open workouts, but this workout might be one where I could gain a lot of extra ground to help me make it to the top 10% and get to the Masters Qualifier. I highlighted the areas where I might be able to pick up significant time. Would I just give that time back by missing a bunch of double unders though?
10/10 Banded Rotations w/ 10s Hold on each side (red band on rig)
The last two nights I was in the garage until after 10pm to finish reorganizing the gym and I’m mostly done with the Gympac. Need to tweak a few things. I was off work today and walked 18 holes of golf in the morning. Worked out at 4pm.
5:00 BikeErg (2,400m)
80′ Lateral Monster Walks
80′ Monster Walks
10 Plyo Lunges
10 Air Squats
10 Plyo Lunges (35# DBs)
5 Rounds (I Go, You Go)
10 Weighted Plyo Lunges (50# DBs)
10 Squat Jumps
10 Air Squats
Why not try some heavy plyos? 🙂 Brandi used 15 pound dumbbells and we finished in 6:34. Legs really started to feel it in the third round, which I predicted. The air squats were surprising difficult after the other 20 reps. Really good leg burn.
24 Russian Twists (5# ankle weights)
12 Leg Lifts (5# ankle weights)
12 Seated Leg Tucks (5# ankle weights)
This turned out well and I felt good.
30:00 AMRAP w/ Partner
40 Single Arm DB Hang C&J (50/35#)
20 Burpee Box Get Overs (48/38”)
200m Suitcase Carry (70/50#)
40 Ring Dips
20/12 cal BikeErg
I went first and we split most things right down the middle. For two rounds I switched hands every five reps on the C&J, I went 10-10 in the third round, and I went 5-5 again at the end. We made quick work of changing the box height after my ten reps. I alternated hands every 25 meters on my 100 meter walk. We did swap every 10 reps for the rings dips because 20 would have sucked. I went 5-5 on most on my turns. Then the Bike was just 20 cals for me and 12 for Brandi. We finished 3+10.
No golf yesterday because of my back. Gave me time to get some painting done, mow the lawn, and work on the Gympac squeezed in around work. Worked out at 4pm today. I’m moving around a lot better today and the dog bite is healing well.

12 Push-up + knee tuck
12 Seated Leg Tucks
12 Hollow Rocks
Brandi had the idea to change our plan and do abs with running instead of a different workout i had planned. This really got me because I knew I had to push the runs. The nice thing is that I was able to, which historically is not me. I started out a little under two minutes per round and was slowing down. Then I got around the 7:00 mark and really wanted to get seven rounds and finish the run, so I had to make up some ground. Proud of myself for being able to pick up the pace even more on both the runs and the core work. Finished 7+204.
