It was sort of a partner workout, sort of solo. Brandi started on the rower and I did the three different movements before we switched. I was getting 500 meters each round, having to go faster and faster to get it. Then B went TURBO in the 5th round and finished at 22:48. I kept going to get my 500 and ended at 23:05.
My parents came down Friday night and we needed a lazy day yesterday. Still sore from the workouts earlier in the week.

60 Pull-ups + One Arm KB OH Hold (53#)
40 Goblet Squats (35#) + Goblet Squat Hold (35#)
20 3-count V-ups + Plank
Saw this on Instagram and thought it looked fun. Brandi went first, which was a mistake because her grip was shot for the dead hangs and my grip is much better. We did 25s for the swings, 20s for the lunges, 9-9-6-6 for pull-ups, 10s for squats, and 5s for the V-ups. Took us 12:59.
10:00 Time Cap 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
That weight was right up my alley and kept my back safe. I stepped back and up on almost all burpees until near the end, but I jumped them all over. Felt like I kept a solid steady pace and never really took time before picking the bar back up. Got through the 9s on the way back down and then 8 deadlifts and 1 burpee for a total of 137 reps.
Solid workout and I’ll be able to walk tomorrow. It’s so nice not stressing and obsessing about these workouts.
12 DB Curls (20#) + 12 Tricep Pushdowns (bar, 49#)
30 Sprinter Sit-ups (Partner does 30s Plank)
24 Walking Lunges
12 DB Bench Press (50#) + 12 DB Push Press (35#)
12/12 Side V-ups (Partner does 24 Plank Knee Taps)
Partner workout with B. For the jump rope and lunges we each went while the other rested. The dumbbell movements were paired up, so the partner rested until both movements were done. For the abs, each partner was working at the same time and then we switched. I started the first round and then we alternated who started every round after that. Took us 34:01.
Yesterday I walked 18 yesterday and mowed B’s lawn in the evening.
20 PVC Passes
10 PVC Shrugs
MAX Bench Press (180/85#)
I was able to do 23 today to beat the 18 reps from the early Friday session.
All threes wasn’t great for me last week so I planned to go back to all fives with limited rests. I was struggling as I got to 70 so I changed to threes the rest of the way. It ended up being 14×5 and 10×3 to finish in 3:21, which is an 18 second PR and 1:27 better than week one! Brandi hit a huge PR by 1:04 by doing threes, which is over two minutes better than week one.
3 Sets @ 3 Weights
3:00 Rest between sets
I figured increasing 20 pounds on each weight, compared to week one would be a good test. I got 16-14-12 with 175#, 20-17-17 with 145#, and 24-22-23 with 120#. That comes out to 2,980 more total pounds than week one with 155-125-100!
