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

1/31/20

Retest of NCFIT Baseline II today. Last time testing was 10/2/19.

Part 1

On a 12:00 running clock, run 1 Mile. Then in remaining time, Max Meters on Rower or Max Distance on Bike.

*Rest minimum 5:00 before part 2.

Compared to last time, I tempered the run a bit coming in at 5:55 compared to 5:43 last time. However, that allowed me to get more meters – 1465m vs. 1412m. My goal is to get 1500m next time around.

Part 2

12 min AMRAP:

6 Strict Pull-ups
12 Hand Release Push-ups
18 Sit-ups

I hit 6+20 for an 18 rep improvement over last time. Two PRs today!

12/24/19

Since we had Quinn, Char and I headed to the gym early so he could run around while we did the workout. He mostly stayed out of the way. Success! After a warm-up, we did this Cindy-esque rep scheme.

20 min AMRAP:

  • 5 Strict Pull-ups
  • 10 Hand-release Push-ups
  • 15 Assault Bike Cals

My first few rounds were unbroken on the push-ups and took roughly 1:50. For the last 6-ish sets, I broke the push-ups 7/3. The pull-ups were unbroken the entire time. Ended with 9+12.

10/2/19

Repeat of 5/8/19, which I didn’t log here for some reason – NC Fit Baseline. It came in two parts.

Part 1

On a 12:00 running clock, run 1 Mile. Then in remaining time, Max Meters on Rower or Max Distance on Bike.

*Rest minimum 5:00 before part 2.

I sold my soul on the run trying to beat my 5:50 from last time. I ended up running 5:43 on the mile with a 2:48/2:55 split for each 800m. Then, I hit 1412m on the row for a 1m PR so I PRd both sections!

Part 2

12 min AMRAP:

6 Strict Pull-ups
12 Hand Release Push-ups
18 Sit-ups

The rep scheme for this one was different than last time (4, 8, 12 last time) so I didn’t have much to compare to. My arms were smoked though. I ended up hitting 6+2 Rx.

8/6/19

Joined the 5AM class today! Good times knocking out the workout early on.

15 minute AMRAP:

20/15 Cal Bike
15 Hand Release Push-up
2 Rope Climb

Result: 5 rounds Rx

My goals were to keep the bike around 450 watts, stick with sets of 5 on the HR push-ups, and get each rope climb in two pulls. I mostly was able to hit those marks with each round coming in at 3:00 or so. I had a few rope climbs that took 3 pulls because I got lazy.

6/6/19

I’ve been laid up in bed sick the past few days so it felt great to get back in the gym today. I wasn’t feeling 100%,  but I still was in there!

We started off with some strength work on bench press.

3@135
3@155
3@165
3@175
3@185
3@195

I was pretty stoked to hit 195 for 3 considering I haven’t worked out for a few days and how infrequently we bench press.

Then, we hit this metcon:

8 Rounds for Time:

12 Hand-Release Push-ups
6 Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups
300m Run

Time: 18:09 Rx

My first four rounds were unbroken on the push-ups. Then, I went to quick sets of 6/3/3. C2B Pull-ups felt great and were butterfly the entire way.
