Trophy Husband

photo-9Note to self: Do not work out within an hour of eating at Spark’s. I enjoyed the beef brisket and fried okra winfrey, but I almost hurled whilst upside-down. Almost.

It’s no secret that I like EMOTM WODs.

EMOTM for 30 minutes
— 1 dead-lift @ 75% of 1RM (275#)
— 2 negative HSPUs (3″)
— 3 chest to bar pull-ups
— 4 toes to bar

My goal was to complete all rounds unbroken. No surprise there, right?

First, dead-lifts felt heavy, but I had no missed lifts. Two hundred seventy-five pounds is almost twice my body weight. I dead-lifted 8,250#. That’s 8.25 tons. Be impressed.

My wrist is almost completely healed, and HSPUs went swimmingly today. No missed attempts.

What, chest to bar pull-ups just a day after completing dead-hang pull-ups? Why the hell not? Again, no missed attempts.

I immediately transitioned from pull-ups to toes to bar, and this is the first time I recall doing so as part of a WOD. It certainly took some getting used to. I did lose focus on the 21st round and did not immediately transition to toes to bar. I’m not perfect, folks. Not yet. All chest to bar pull-ups were done unbroken, as were toes to bar.

The following is round number and time:

1-33
2-33
3-33
4-31
5-30
6-27
7-29
8-30
9-30
10-31
11-30
12-28
13-29
14-29
15-29
16-29
17-27
18-26
19-26
20-27
21-29
22-28
23-27
24-26
25-28
26-26
27-27
28-26
29-24
30-22

I started off slowly and ended blazingly fast. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to complete a round in 25 seconds or less, but when I finally did by the 29th round I set a goal for my last round to be my fastest. And it was.

Total time = 14:08
