Motivational Lifter

I had planned on working out at 9:30 but was unable to do so. Dammit. My least favorite time of the day to work out is at noon, as that’s when I’m starting to get sleepy and begin thinking about how wonderful my afternoon nap is going to be.

Coach Doza did a great job of coaching the noontime session, and it became immediately apparent that he took to heart my feedback to the coaches regarding how to effectively coach a session. Yay!

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

Every 45 seconds for 15 rounds
10 wall ball shots (20/14 & 10/9)
Complete unbroken reps for Rx+

I used a 25# wall ball and threw to a 10′ target. I decided that if I was unable to complete a round in unbroken reps that I’d rest the next round. I rested rounds 8 & 12. The 25# wall ball felt exceedingly heavy today.

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

Every 45 seconds for 15 rounds
3 deadlifts @ 65% of 1RM
Complete @ 75% of 1RM for Rx+

I lifted 280#, 75% of 1RM. Glenda and I worked out beside each other, and I’m very glad that we did! She motivated me to lift quickly and explosively. Coach Doza said, “That’s a good idea to try to match Coach Paul’s reps, Glenda.” I immediately replied, “I’m the one who’s trying to match her reps, Doza.”

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

Every 45 seconds for 15 rounds
3 burpees to 4″ target

Three burpees just wasn’t going to be enough for me, so I doubled the number. I set a goal to complete reps in fewer than 15 seconds each round, and I did so, usually in 14 seconds. The last round took me just 12 seconds! That’s was 90 reps, folks.

I haven’t include a Paul witticism in quite some time. I’ll remedy that now.

Upon noticing that the male athletes were completing 10 reps of wall ball shots a few seconds before the women I commented, “The men are finishing first. Like men always do.”

Doza captured some great pics of Luke and me!
