A tough workout tonight at SISU
First of all I don’t know who this other Nick is on the board but you better find a “Nick”name quickly because that one is taken!
Starting off with a lesson in rowing LEGS BACK HANDS HANDS BACK LEGS say it with me now LEGS BACK HANDS HANDS BACK LEGS – now do that about a million times! Well maybe not quite that many, But working on rowing was fun. But BOY does it tire me out, I need to find a way to pace myself better.
In the race that’s the fastest I’ve done a 500M Row, getting it done in 1:35. I gassed out pretty hard otherwise I think I could have done better. Remembering to get my hands more forward to make the Most of each pull as Jason put it. Thats my challenge for rowing. I think I have the other components down. While the other two guys were rowing we just kinda warmed up with push-ups and I did some tests on the box jump overs. I am actually REALLY tired from the row. Guess its time to workout.
20 Over Head Lunge with barbell (75/45)
20 Ball Slam (30/20)
20 Box Jump Over (24/20)
This is going to really kick my ass. My goal is 20 minutes. I feel I can get it done in that amount of time if I really get at it. While setting up I see everyone scaling in some way shape or form, I refuse to. I get a 24 inch box, I get 75lb bar setup, 30lb ball. I’m doing this the way it was intended because I know I can. As I have said in other workouts, I’m sick of scaling, hence I have a workout with 20 double unders. So lets start this thing.
Starting with the 50 sit-ups. I am slower then everyone else, by a solid minute. I did 30 OK but then I really slowed down, it took me almost 3 minutes. The Over Head Lunges, I rocked these things out. All 20 unbroken no issues, I’m caught right back up. Ball slams again unbroken I’ve Moved ahead. Then the box jump OVER’s Man right when you think a box jump couldn’t get harder… Its a burpee box jump… well heres a new difficult one.. Box Jump Overs.
These are not made for short fat white guys. They just aren’t But I’m gonna kill these things if it kills me. Jason I know tried a few different ways to talk me down to a shorter box, but I wasn’t having it. I am slow at these but I am getting them done. No Rhyme or reason for my sets just as much as I had to finish them up.
Round 2 was broken up 10 and 10 on the over head squats and 5 then 8 then 7. The jumps again were my slowest, they really are killing my time, but I am getting through them. Last round 10 and 10 on the overhead squats 8 and 12 on the ball slams and again kinda stuck doing onesy twosy on the jumps. I finish with about a little more 1 minute left on my goal – not gonna make it. The sit-ups were a straight up gut check (literally and figuratively) and I didn’t do them fast, I couldn’t. Didn’t make my goal, not even close but did make it under cap of 25:00. hey look longest time in the class boo 🙁
My time 22:20
