Feeling really good today after a rest day yesterday. We released the new mask policy at CFU starting Monday, but I decided to wear my mask the entire time today just to see what it would feel like.

Tabatas:

  • Double Under
  • Sit-up
  • Push-up
  • Pull-up
  • Burpee

We rested a minute between tabatas. Score was the lowest rep count for each exercise. Mine was 30/12/10/10/5 for a total of 67.

7/25/20

One too many margaritas last night meant that I wasn’t feeling great this morning. Charlotte and I still managed to get out in the garage at 9am to work our even with all the chaos of getting two kids ready for a Baptism ceremony.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps of:

  • Hang Power Clean (135#)
  • Hand Release Push-up

*30 double unders after each set

Time: 11:45

7/15/20

Headed into the gym for this fun little double AMRAP:

6 min AMRAP:

  • 5 Push Jerk (115#)
  • 10 T2B
  • 20 Double Under

Rest 3:00. Then, repeat starting where you left off.

I went out of the gate hot on this one unbroken on the T2B for the first two sets. Obviously, I knew that wasn’t going to last so I dropped down to 6/4 until my very last set. Ended up going:

  • Set 1: 5+28
  • Set 2: 4+18

For a total of 10+12.

6/15/20

I was out in the garage at 11AM to get this one started. My chest is just starting to feel it from Saturday’s metcon.

Warm-Up

3 rounds not for time:

  • 35 Jumping Jacks
  • 15 DB Swings (2×20#)
  • Burgener Warm-up (PVC for the first round, empty bar for second and third)

Metcon

I built up in hang power clean and jerk from 45-65-95 before getting to the working weight for the workout.

8 min AMRAP:

  • 25 Double Unders
  • 5 Hang Power Clean and Jerk (115#)

This was originally programmed with 50# DBs, but I didn’t have those so I used a 115# DB instead. I finished a total of 8+25. My first round was 45 seconds, but I was up to a minute for the last few rounds.

Handstand Walking Drills

I started the BTWB handstand walking skill session. It’s 20 workouts over the course of 7 weeks (3x/week). Today’s skill session started with a max distance handstand walking attempt.

This was my best attempt, and I didn’t even manage to make it 4ft 😂

For the drills, I did:

  • 60 sec Handstand Hold against wall (2x30sec)
  • 3×5 Box Walkouts
  • 3×16 Plank Shifts

Here’s a video of the box walkouts. They were pretty tough!

We’re getting induced today at 8am! Really excited to meet the new addition to the family. Since I’m pretty sure I won’t get a workout in tomorrow (Thursday), I was up early before we needed to leave the house.

“Annie”

50-40-30-20-10 reps for time of:

  • Double Unders
  • Situps

I really pushed the pace on both parts. Ended at 6:51, which is still far off my PR. Not quite sure how I can go faster.

Finished with some jump rope accessory work.

2 rounds of 1 minute each:

  • Double Under
  • Single Under

I need with 391 total reps.

5/18/20

As a bit of an extended warm-up, I did six sets of the following on a 12:00 clock:

  • 10 Goblet Squat (50#)
  • 16 Alternating Goblet Reverse Lunge
  • 20 Glute bridges

Then, I moved on to the main piece.

E2M for 10 minutes:

  • 15 DB Front Squats (50s)
  • Max Double Unders in remaining time

My DU sets went 90, 70, 75, 65, 50. Those front squats got a bit tough!!

5/11/20

Feeling good coming off of a rest day yesterday. Quinn was also back in daycare today, which is a great relief. We finally have time to workout on our own again.

We had to pick up something from the gym so we actually went in there for a workout. Great to be back in the gym if only for a short time!

Strength

Over 15:00, work up to a 5RM back squat.

Since I haven’t squatted with a barbell in some time, I took this a bit easier than normal. I worked up to 255 and 265 for my heaviest sets of 5. Felt good!

Metcon

Every 3:00 for 4 sets:

  • 75 Double Unders
  • 25 Wall Balls

Rest remainder of time.

My first three sets were on point. I finished right at 1:40 with everything going unbroken. The wheels came off during my last set 😂 I broke my DUs once and the wall balls 3x (10/8/7). This was a tough metcon!!
