Make a man out of you.

Monday, February 9

I worked out with the 6:30 am athletes, led by Coach Nick.

Suitcase Deadlift (Complete 5 reps every min for 10 min)

We set up the dumbbells in pairs, from 15 to 100#. I began with 55 and worked my up to 100#. Yup, that’s 50 suitcase deadlifts with the heaviest pair at 200#. I like suitcase deadlifts.
Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)
7-min AMRAP
10m farmer’s carry (53/35)
2 man makers

I truly challenged myself in that I used 40# dumbbells for manmakers, i.e., more than half of my bodyweight. I also used a 60# KB for farmer’s carry.

Uhm, have I mentioned how much I hate thrusters?

I had completed 5 rounds at the halfway mark and set a goal to complete another 5 rounds in the next 3.5 minutes. I did so, with an additional 10m farmer’s carry and 1 last man maker for a total of 32 reps.

Tuesday, February 9

I worked out with the 9:30 athletes, led by Coach Deborah.
Press (3-3-3-3-3)
I completed sets @ 75, 85, 95, 115, & 125# Presses felt good today. I did perform on the new platforms.
Push Press (2-2-2-2)
I completed sets @ 115, 125, 135, & 145, which is evidently a 2RM PR. I’ll take it.
Power Jerk (1-1-1)
I completed reps @ 135, 150, 155, the last rep just 5# less than 1RM.
I enjoyed this series, as there was only 2 minutes between the start of 1 set/rep and the next. I also like working out with Dianne and Kelly-May!
5-min AMRAP
1, 2, 3…
Chest to bar pull-ups
Complete 5 lateral bar hops between each round

My kind of workout! I was able to complete through round 7 of chest to bar pull-ups unbroken, but by the end of the workout I was doing them 1 rep at a time. I made it through round 10 and then an additional 7, completing the very last rep just as the clock sounded. That’s a total of 62 chest to bar pull-ups and 55 lateral bar hops. Make that 57 lateral bar hops, as I accidentally completed 7 reps 1 round.
