I worked out after coaching 3 back-to-back Boot Camp sessions. This week’s WODs have been spectacular! Tami brought her son-in-law, Matt, for a visit, and midway through the WOD he looked at me and said, “This is legit.” It is, Matt. It is.
As I wanted to be near the TV when today’s wonderful SCOTUS rulings were announced, I worked out at 9:30. I’m trying to decide which Hero WOD(s) to program for July 4. I’ll be trying another Hero WOD tomorrow.
Hero WOD “Wilmot”
—50 air squats
—25 ring dips
Do the math, people. That’s 300 air squats and 150 ring dips. I have never attempted that many ring dips in a metcon, so I was a bit apprehensive about doing so.
Uhm, yeah, so I’ve gotten stronger. Could it be because I’m following my own programming? Duh.
I completed all 6 rounds of 50 air squats unbroken. I hadn’t set out to do so; thus, I was pleased.
I completed the first round of 25 ring dips strict — and unbroken! I had no idea that I could do so, and I don’t recall a time in the past when I’ve been able to do so. I completed the second round in reps of 15, 5, & 5, the third, fourth, and fifth rounds in reps of 10, 5, 5, & 5, and the last round in reps of 10, 5, 5. 4, & 1. I was pretty much spent.
