A difficult night at SISU
The warm up was with PVC doing some bar work and stretching doing some pass throughs and over head squats. I feel like I am starting to get better at these movements. If I just detach my hips and butt and get stuff back I will be much better off.
The skill work – I think was an EMOM wall walk…. for 10 minutes… Are you kidding me?!? Come on…
This is going to be H A R D…. Again I know it comes to a surprise to all my readers (all one of you) but I am not a gymnast… And these wall walks are difficult. And 10 minutes of them is NOT going to be easy. These wall walks dam near made me puke and I collapsed unexpectedly twice, which really never happens to me…
After those its now time to start the workout…. Are you kidding me? Thats what I was asking myself.
30 Push Ups
40 Box Jumps (24/20)
50 KB Swing
50 KB Swing (24/16)
40 Box Jump
30 Push Ups
This is just going to be a bear, a giant grind and a TON of work. Only one way its going to get done and thats start it.
We start in on this and I do an OK 200, I didn’t sprint or anything. The pushups easy – unbroken set. The boxjumps I break into 10’s. Then to my surprise the Kettlebells really take a toll on me. I decide to break into 10’s but they are killing me. I dont’ think I was getting my hips right. But I finish up the set.
This 400M run was tough and I pushed myself pretty good throughout the half way mark, I kinda was going to slow at the start. But I felt good as I passed a couple of other runners. And then right back into those dam kettlebells, ugh. These were hard for some reason. Maybe because I am so dang sore from that tire workout yesterday. But nonetheless I had to get on them and I had to get moving. I did, and it was hard.
My head is pounding, I have a headache something severe, my body is rebeling against this workout. Its happened before but it was bad tonight. There are points during Kettlebells that I have to stop because it feels like my brain is going to explode… I push through.
The boxjumps really were hard, I am making sure to pop my hips out at the top and that I am doing them right. That box just seems to be so high sometimes. These took me too long and I look at the clock I see 17 minutes,my head is pounding like crazy… my goal is 20 minutes…. And I have 20 some box jumps left, I start hitting them hard, like hard. I do 9 then 11 and then to the pushups. I actually struggle to tie them together they are doing work on me. I have done 20,000 of them over the course of this year, good thing too because it got me through it leaving me around 1:30 to make my goal…. The bottom of a pushup face down in my own sweat and dirt my head felt good for a second.
The 200M run I am proud of myself, I felt great (tonight as I type this) getting this done and pushing myself harder then I thought I could. Every week that line moves it seems like. It just seems like I am getting better every week.
After the workout I pretty much collapsed outside, I was pretty surprised how good that felt… Then I was full of dirt from that and Jason recently has been getting us doing some mobility. Again I realize I just dont’ bend the way other people seem to be able to do… Dang I have a headache.
