Quads Need Rest

My quads are really really sore and no rest for them with today’s metcon. Got my first dose of the COVID vaccine this morning, so my arm is getting a bit sore. It was almost 80° at 4pm when we took the bike to the back patio.

Conditioning

Partner workout

  • 5×20/14 cal BikeErg (standing)
  • 125 Synchro Air Squats

My quads were burning up in the second 10 calories of the last three rounds on the bike. I let Brandi go first, so then I had to get off the bike and get right in to the squats. So unpleasant! We started off with a set of 25 and then did five sets of 20. Finished in 14:27.

Arms & Midline

3 Sets

  • 12 EZ Bar Skull Crushers (61#)
  • 8/8 Static DB Curls (20# DBs)
  • 8 Dumbbell Curls (20# DBs)
  • 10/10 Side Bends (70# KB)

3 Sets

  • 20 alt Underhand Dumbbell Bench Presses (35# DBs, bit of a cross body)
  • 10 Reverse Barbell Curls (35-50-55#)
  • 15 T2B

I didn’t wear grips and did the toes to bars unbroken each set

4 Sets

Hopefully going golfing tomorrow if I feel ok after the vaccine. Definitely need the rest day and some walking would do my legs good.

Turnt Curls

My back was feeling off through the night and when I woke up, so I adjusted today’s workout to give it some rest. Workout at about 12:30 today.

Arms

3 Sets

  • 15 Single DB Curls (40-45-50#)
  • 15 EZ Bar Skull Crushers (56-61-61#)

These single dumbbell curls were holding a head of a dumbbell in each hand and curling it up. Different.

3 Sets

  • 8/8 Static DB Curls (25#)
  • 8 DB Curls (25#)
  • 15 Tricep Pulldowns (rope, 60#)

3 Sets

  • 15 Turned Out DB Curls (20-20-25#)
  • 15 Tricep Pushdowns (bar, 60#)

I kind of liked these “turnt” curls.

Conditioning

15:00 BikeErg

Took me a little bit to settle in and probably warm-up. Went 8,110 meters.
