Tuesday night with Pat at SISU. On a day I wanted to skip, I almost did skip but I remembered something, show up. I read something sometime that said when you want to skip the gym do two things 1) get in your car and go to the gym 2) Figure it out. So thats what I was going to do.
The warmup was ok we did a 500M row that I actually felt OK at. That first 400M always feels ok and after that its just shitty for me the whole time… Good mornings felt really tight and then got better, so thats good. Inch worms wreck shop on my hamstrings. The hamstring stretch was the barbell low on the rack and just setting your leg on it and twisting the bar up and down… it felt pretty good actually.
One arm deadlift wasn’t the greatest for me but I did OK. I ended up getting 225 in my right arm but couldn’t do it left. Jake did well and got 285 in his right arm. I just couldn’t grip the bar…
Weighted pull-ups were ok. I was able to get 4 strict with the vest and the 30lb dumbbell. Then I was able to do one with both items, that was pretty fun.
Workout of the Day
One Arm Deadlift
Weighted Pull-ups (30/20)
100 KB Swings (24/16)
50 Box Jumpes (24/20)
25M Handstand walk
And again on paper it doesnt’ seem so bad. I wonder how many times I think and say that on this blog…
Turns out it was pretty hard. I dive in to the kettlebells going like gang busters on them, I get 35 unbroken. I then do about 18 more. Then its sets of 10-12 the rest of the way. Except the last two it was like a 7 8. I thought I was doing really well with them but about 1/2 the class beat me.
Oh Box jumps… I’m so slow. I did jump every time no step ups (good) but it was taking me a long time and I was tired at these. My legs felt like two heavy logs after yesterdays squatting. And my groin doesn’t appreciate the step down… Over all I simply did OK.
The handstand were tough. I was getting a couple good holds but couldn’t walk. When I would walk I got off track fast and these took me longer then expected. Most everyone was already done.
The good things about this workout for me were my first 35 unbroken KB. I did box jump every time, no step ups.
The bad things about this workout for me is I took too much rest during the KB sets. I really should have done better. And box jumps I was pretty slow at. And handstands just weren’t there tonight.
My time: 13:18
