Duckin’ Out

We did this alternating rounds like we have been on leg day and it took us 30:34. This was money for the first week of a new cycle. The run felt really good today (maybe because it was first) and I could feel my hamstrings lighting up on the RDLs in the second set. Those step-ups were so terrible. Might try wearing a weight vest for the last superset next week.

  • Deadlifts (135#)
  • Bar-facing burpees

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.
