Ten minutes

That’s how long the WOD lasted, and that’s how long it’s likely to take me to compose this very brief blog.

Yup, I know I should take a rest day. I do, however, feel obligated to try many of the workouts I create so that I can know what CFSers may expect and so that I can modify if necessary.

I very much wanted to attempt power clean 1RM but my right wrist is still somewhat sore. It’s apparent, however, that my wrist is merely sore and not injured or damaged. Yeah!

5-min AMRAP
5 pull-ups
5 stiff-legged dead-lifts, 95#
15 double unders

Rest 1 minute

5-minute AMRAP
5 toes to bar
5 floor presses
15 double unders

This was as much fun as I thought it was going to be! For an added challenge, double unders had to be completed unbroken. I only had to restart 1 round.

I completed first round of 5 pull-ups as kipping. How, kipping seems very slow when compared to butterflying, so that’s what I did for the remainder of the rounds. While I wasn’t always able to complete all 5 reps unbroken, I didn’t drop from the bar.

Stiff-legged dead-lifts are always fun.

I completed all toes to bar by, well, touching toes to bar, i.e., not touching any other part of shoe or body. I completed all rounds unbroken.

Floor presses went much better than I anticipated. Perhaps I am developing my chesticles.

I completed 6 rounds + 9 reps the first workout — and I almost completed 1 last dead-lift. The timer sounded, however, before I was able to place the bar on the floor.

I completed 6 rounds + 10 reps the second workout.

I completed 275 air squats yesterday and my quads weren’t the least bit sore today. Why not? I need to know.
