First, Paleo dieting continues to go well. We shopped at Whole Foods yesterday and I purchased ghee. And $150 worth of other groceries. Eating clean is expensive.

PC: Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)
27 Double/Single Unders
33 Double/Single Unders
39 Double/Single Unders
This was the 4th workout of the Paleo Challenge and it did not go well for a couple of reasons. 1: The barbell club leaves me exhausted. 2. The barbell club leaves me exhausted.
I woke up with sore abs, of all things. Me? Sore abs? How the hell does that happen? I wisely decided to lift 75 instead of 95#. I was 20 double unders shy of completing block 3. Uhm, my goal was to complete block 3. Uhm, I fell apart.
Yet the Paleo Challenge continues…

I did not rest, as Rona was taking pics and I selfishly wanted more action shots of, you know, me. I did, however, take it relatively easy. To ensure that I didn’t overdo it, I completed the workout solo. It was a full house, with about 25 in attendance.
Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)
– Air squats / Weighted air squats / Jumping weighted air squats (45/25) / Barbell squats (95/63)
– Pushups / Weighted pushups (45/25) / Clapping pushups / HSPUs
– Ring rows / Pull-ups / C2B pull-ups / Muscle ups or strick pull-ups
– Abmat sit-ups / Weighted sit-ups / T2B / GHD sit-ups or strict T2B
– Lunges / Weighted lunges (45/25) / Jumping lunges (45/25) / Barbell lunges (95/63)
Tabataish. I began with weighted air squats, using the 45# rucksack and completing 51 reps. Not bad. I next completed 17 HSPUs, beginning with 11 unbroken. For a change of pace I completed strict ring pull-ups, i.e., no kipping. Even though it wasn’t in the correct order, I moved to GHD sit-ups (as the machines were available) and completed 40 reps followed by 20 strict T2B and 33 GHD back extensions.
For the next round I completed 39 jumping air squats, again using the rucksack, 45 reps of parallete pushups or pass throughs (yup, Rona was taking pics), 31 strict toes through rings, and 22 C2B pull-ups. Angie joined me whilst I was completing 2nd round of GHD sit-ups, and it was fun to have someone challenging me. I completed 39 reps, just 1 shy or reps completed 1st round. To end with a challenging activity, I completed 24 reps of 95# forward lunges.
Score = 376
Rona has taken some spectacular pictures, and I’m looking very forward to seeing what she captured.
