AC-less

Spent all day yesterday withDad pulling out some old AC units and patching up the holes in the walls. Was not a rest day! Now I’ll be without AC in my bedroom for just over two weeks until the mini splits are installed. We worked from before 8am to after 8pm without much break time.

Fitnessed at noon today.

Real easy pace today out on the back patio. It was hot in the sun. Went 9,548 meters.

  • 100m Sandbag Carry (100#)
  • 12/12 Side Plank Row (cable, 30#)

This was like an old school strongman metcon. Nice change up for the core work.

It’s So Hot

My ass is still pretty sore. My quads and shoulders are getting a little sore. Outside at 9:30 with the bike on the driveway.

Warm-up

25:00 BikeErg

Went 12,619 meters and got faster every five minute period.

Back

4:00 EMOM

  • 6 Weighted Pull-ups (35#)
  • 6 Weighted Chin-ups (35#)

4 Sets

  • 8 Lat Pulldowns (115-120-125-130#)

4 Sets

  • 8/8 Half Kneeling Single Arm Pull Down (underhand, cross body, handle, 25-25-30-32.5#)

4 Sets

  • 8 Seated Cable Rows (double handles, 100-105-110-115#)

5 Set Drop Set

  • 8 Incline DB Fly (45#)
  • MAX incline DB Fly (40-35-30-25#)

8-10-10-12 last time where we helped each other change the adjustable set of dumbbells. Even less rest today with the new rack of DBs. I did 10-8-8-12 for the drop sets. Horrible!!

Midline

4 Sets

  • 12 OH Crunches (50# DBs, pause)
  • 12/12 Side Plank Cable Rows (25#)
  • 12 Parallette Shoot Throughs (ankle weights)
  • 100m Farmer Carry (80# + 8# handle)

Only wore the ankle weights for the shoot throughs today. I had them stripped down to 3# each to start and loaded back up to 5# each for the last two sets. Was able to do the Farmer Carry unbroken each time, but those get nasty so heavy. I really like the handles I bought from Titan Fitness.
