Monday, February 9
I worked out with the 6:30 am athletes, led by Coach Nick.
Suitcase Deadlift (Complete 5 reps every min for 10 min)
10m farmer’s carry (53/35)
2 man makers
I truly challenged myself in that I used 40# dumbbells for manmakers, i.e., more than half of my bodyweight. I also used a 60# KB for farmer’s carry.
Uhm, have I mentioned how much I hate thrusters?
I had completed 5 rounds at the halfway mark and set a goal to complete another 5 rounds in the next 3.5 minutes. I did so, with an additional 10m farmer’s carry and 1 last man maker for a total of 32 reps.

1, 2, 3…
Chest to bar pull-ups
Complete 5 lateral bar hops between each round
My kind of workout! I was able to complete through round 7 of chest to bar pull-ups unbroken, but by the end of the workout I was doing them 1 rep at a time. I made it through round 10 and then an additional 7, completing the very last rep just as the clock sounded. That’s a total of 62 chest to bar pull-ups and 55 lateral bar hops. Make that 57 lateral bar hops, as I accidentally completed 7 reps 1 round.
