5 Rounds

  • 50m Sandbag Carry (100#)

Fell in to a pace and picked it up at the end. I went 10-5-5 on every set of push-ups, which was tough. Finished in 14:28.

Then we spent an hour digging the final post hole for the outdoor gym area.

Digging

I walked 18 holes yesterday and my back got tight on the back nine. I also spent about 30 minutes in the evening compacting sand to prepare for digging the post holes. My back is feeling good today though.

Warm-up

  • 2:00 BikeErg (861m)
  • Shoulder Stretching

Conditioning

  • 400m Run
  • 50 Parallette-facing Burpees
  • 400m Run

The parallette is a little over two inches taller than the barbell and roughly twice as wide too. My runs were about 2:00 each, so I was doing about 10 burpees a minute. Finished at exactly 9:00.

Back

3 Sets

  • 12 Seated Wide Grip Cable Row (93#)
  • 12 Seated Back Fly (30#)

3 Sets

  • 12 Lat Pulldowns (lean back, 93#)
  • 8/8 Kroc Row (60# DB)

3 Sets

  • 12 Straight Arm Pulldowns (60#)
  • 12 DB Pullover (50#)

Then we spent about an hour digging a couple of the post holes and made pretty good progress for neither of us having any experience doing it.

Unbroken 20s

We were going to go out for an easy run and do push-ups throughout, but it started raining. Out in the garage around 4:30.

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 2:00 TrueForm Run
  • 20 Push-ups
  • 2:00 BikeErg
  • 20 Push-ups

Started out standing on the bike in the first round but we quickly decided that was not a good idea to continue. I managed to do every set of push-ups unbroken, which was surprising. My distances were 0.38 – 0.41 – 0.43 – 0.45 km on the TrueForm and 1,032 – 1,056 – 1,059 – 1,086 meters on the bike. That has hard!
