Tuesday night with Pat at SISU.
Warmup was a 800m run where everyone cut the corner except me and Jake. I yelled at the class when we got back in. It was kinda funny.
Onto the skill: the Romanian deadlift. I didn’t do great but I was getting it with Jake’s help. I did end up getting like 325 for a 2 rep but my thumbs were being destroyed. But he kept me focused and we did pretty good work.
Workout of the Day
3 Elevated Push Ups 24/20
5 Push Ups
8 Box Jumps 24/20
This workout actually was quite the little burner, mostly because I was trying to compete with Craig, a guy at the gym. It was friendly and fun but boy, while it was going all I wanted him to do was take a break!!! But he just kept going so I had to as well..
The box jumps by round four were straight up killing me. My legs felt like logs and I just had to keep pushing. I wanted to stay ahead of Craig and I wanted to burn the hell out of this 10 minute workout.
So 10 minute workouts are a funny thing. You see the time going and you think, “There’s not much time left so I have to keep going” – you think that the whole time… And the rep scheme was one that you could just do ’em and keep going. But the box jumps were the worst.
I have to say I am very proud of myself on this workout. I pushed hard the whole time and I honestly can say that I don’t think I could have done too much more. Maybe got a 13 or 14 but that’s about it… It was very fun and a great workout and I thanked Craig very much for it.
My Score 12+5
