Large groups at 6, 8:30, & 6:30 (17!) and small groups at 11:45 (just 2), 4, & 5:15. Quite a few recent Foundations graduates attended sessions today, and that’s always much fun!
I worked out at 9:45. I had planned on attempting 1RM HBBS, but my hip flexors are somewhat sore. Damn 90 snatches.
I instead completed the partner WOD, albeit with just me, myself, and I.
— 15 burpees
— 20 slam balls (30)
Uhm, yeah, so I couldn’t very well alternate activities. What I did instead was hold a plank for the length of time it took me to complete reps, e.g., 20-second plank for 10 dead-lifts (on average), 40 to 45 seconds for burpees, and 40 to 45 seconds for slam balls.
It was quite humorous to review recording, as I talked out loud quite frequently. “That was 10 seconds. Start plank at 15. Hold plank until 25. Burpees begin at 30.”
I worked continuously, and began activity or plank hold on the 5 second mark.
I completed 4 rounds + 15 burpees (i.e., 10 dead-lifts, 20-second plank, and 15 burpees).
Thus, if 2 rounds included activities and plank holds, I completed 8 rounds + .5 burpees. Right? I love math!
I did, however, mistakenly only put 125% of bodyweight on dead-lift bar, and I was quite upset with myself for having done so. I hate math!
There was an odd number of people at the 6:30 WOD, so I partnered with Pam. Poor Pam. I truly do feel sorry for anyone who partners with me, as I can be somewhat difficult to keep up with. And I’m demanding. I know, right? That’s hard to believe.
I did put 150% of bodyweight on bar this time.
Pam was a trooper, and I encouraged her to rest when needed. I did not call a rest during plank hold or activities, nor did I rest during plank hold when she rested during activity. And that’s okay.
We completed 6 rounds + 5 dead-lifts. That’s pretty damn good.
Totals for the day:
140 slam balls
Loooooong time holding plank, yo.
