Tuesday, December 8 | Four Reps Per Round

I worked out with the 9:30 crew, and it was fun!

Metcon (Weight)

1 power clean + 1 front squat + 1 clean + 1 thruster

I started at 95# and completed last set at 155# — and was disappointed that I didn’t go heavier. The last thruster at that weight felt, dare I say, light. I very much enjoyed this complex.

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

Partner WOD
18-min AMRAP
Row 350m
Max rep alternating arm Turkish Get-ups (53)

I had the pleasure of partnering with Helfin today. Heflin’s an all around great guy. He’s also a very good rower. We both agreed to use a 33# barbell loaded with 10# plates. Uhm, a 53# barbell is much more difficult to use for TGUs than a kettle bell. Just saying.

I asked Helfin what he’d like to begin with and he said Turkish get-ups. I was happy, as I wanted to warm up with a row. We also agreed that we’d take it easy on the row.

I completed 4, 4, 5, 3 (I missed a rep), & 5 and Heflin completed 4, 3, 4, 4, & 2 reps for a total of 42 reps.

Again, what a fun workout! And surprisingly challenging. I’d also like to reiterate that I’m not a dick when I partner with someone. Just ask Heflin! (Don’t ask Steve D.)

Wednesday, December 9 | Human, Bear, Crawl

I worked out with the 9:30 crew once again. Yup, and once again I had a very fun time!

Deadlift (5×5)

My goal was 315#. Deadlifts felt great today, so with 15 minutes still remaining on the clock I completed a set of 5 reps at that weight. Yay! I then did a set of 5 reps at 325, 335, 340, and 345#, about 93% of 1RM. The very last rep was tough. It was fun working out with Heflin, Kelly-May, and Maxine, the three people closest to me. I also decided that I’d no longer say that someone had shitty form but would instead say “fecal form.” Alliteration, folks.

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

11-min AMRAP
1, 2, 3… burpee(s)
Alternate sprinting, bear crawling, and crab walking 10m after each round

Heflin was positioned beside me. He kept up with me for the first burpee. That’s a lie.

I worked steadily for the entire 11 minutes. You read that right. I didn’t rest a single time, including the very last round of burpees. I completed 17 complete rounds and 17 reps for a total of 185 reps. That’s 17o burpees, folks.
