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.
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.
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)
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.
50-40-30-20-10 reps for time of:
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.
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!
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!
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!!
