One partner doing reps while the other holds and then switch. We alternated the leader each round. I started 10-10 on the push-ups but switched to 12-8 and those eights got tough! Took us 18:57.
30s Table Top Kick + Cross Reach
30s Sit-up + 2 Russian Twists
30s Side Plank Jumps
30s Diamond Plank Runners
30s Downward Dog Cross Toe Touches
I stumbled on this guy in the Instagram suggestions and B did a couple of his workouts this week. We definitely cut back on the time and rounds though. I was really sweaty from this and nice to try some new movements. It was a lot of time in a plank today!
Now it’s time for brunch and ice cream, then the big game tonight. GO DUKE!!
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.
We did 5×12/8 on the bike, 4×10 for floor press, lunges, wings, and shoulder presses. I think we went 3-3-3-2-2-2-2-3 pull-ups, and 20-20-10 with the crunches while the partner held a plank. It took 31-32:00 and then a neighbor interrupted. Was going to do the pull-ups and be done.
What a day yesterday. I hit a PR for WHOOP strain.
Went to bed late (for my new normal) and didn’t even wake up to piss through the night. Would have liked to sleep in, so I’m feeling a bit tired this morning. Tried to take a half hour nap just before 9. Loaded up and headed to the park at 10am.
5 Ring Swings
16 Walking Lunges
10 Air Squats
5 Rounds – (each, I Go You Go)
8/8 Single Arm OH Walking Lunges (50 DB)
20 Squat Jumps
I went in hoping to be able to do two sets of five muscle-ups each round and I made it! That’s big for me it a workout with 50 muscle-ups. After the first round I did walk around the swing set for a quick rest between each set of five. I finished my rounds at 2:15, 6:40, 11:05, 15:35, and 20:10. Brandi was doing ten unbroken ring pull-ups so her rounds were much quicker than mine and our total time for the workout was 22:03.
I did not bend over and put the straps between my legs for the forward sled drags this time. Stood more upright with the straps coming around the sides of me to save my back. Had a 55# plate (80 total) on the sled for 2 rounds and then 55+35 (115 total) for 3 rounds.
Mom came down and we started painting what will be my new office. Then I had a “break” when some people came and bought my pool table and ping pong stuff. That was a bitch to get up the stairs!
As I finish typing this up at 10pm my WHOOP strain says 18.5, so another big day.
I mowed the lawn yesterday and didn’t really do much else. Shitty night of sleep because of worries. 🤷🏻♂️ My hands are sore from hook gripping and holding the bar! My traps are sore too from shrugged cleans. Went to the Heritage track at 10am and then back to the garage.
400m Walking Lunge
After all of the plyo lunging, I’ve been wanting to give the 400m lunge a retest. Beautiful morning for it.
Last October my time was 10:39, when I alternated between 20 step-through lunges and 20 bringing my feet together. My goal was to go sub 10 today, by doing 30 step-throughs followed by 10 with a feet gather. I was surprised how great I felt at 100 meters and knew I was flying. As I rounded the final corner I turned to see where Brandi was and she was not far behind me! So I pushed it doing a final 62 step-through lunges without stopping. My time was 8:47!!! Holy Fuck I couldn’t believe it.
Went for a PR, because why not, but it came off the rack weird so I called it after one rep.
E2M – 5 Rounds
16 Alternating V-ups
16 Heel Reaches (leg lifts without lowering legs to the ground)
12/12 Side Plank Bounces
Another good one from Kristi. I did my side plank bounces with my hand on the ground.
Out in the garage at 4pm. Was up to about 65° outside!!
10:00 Airdyne (192 cals – 4.94 km)
20 Air Squats
15/12 cal Row
10 DB Lunges (50/35# DBs)
20 Plyo Lunges
30 Walking Lunges
This was based on a squatting version from Kristi Eramo, which she gave as a substitute for heavy back squats. I went unbroken and it was fucking brutal. Took a little over 21 minutes. I got a little light headed after and felt pretty wrecked. Wasn’t sure if I was going to continue.
42-30-18 Air Squats
21-15-9 HR Push-ups
Rest 4:00 and repeat
I was really slow on the air squats. Took me 4:28 and 4:22 for a total of 12:50 with the rest. I started to have an episode (similar to something in 2017) where I couldn’t come up with words, which was kind of scary. My friends were really concerned and called one of our Doctor friends over. I had a mountain dew right away and then a bunch of other fluids. I started feeling better after about 90 minutes or so and was able to think properly again and come up with words. Maybe it was the warmer day, lack of recent sleep, or not enough carbs (which is sort of what it initially felt like). 🤷🏻♂️
