Coach Nick led the 6am session, and a good time was had by all!
9 deadlifts (
9 burpee handstand pushups
18 Abmat sit-ups
36 UNBROKEN double unders
A very challenging workout indeed! Yup, I completed Rx+.
Two hundred seventy-five pound deadlifts were heavy. I dropped every rep from the top but didn’t rest between reps. I’m reluctant to state that I completed reps unbroken. So I won’t.
Burpee handstand pushups went much better than anticipated. I focused on quickly pushing up once my head touched the mat and was able to do this for 6 or 7 of the first reps of each round.
GHD sit-ups also went much better than anticipated, and I completed all rounds in fast and unbroken reps. Yay!
Completing 36 double unders is a mind f@ck. I was ecstatic when I completed the first round in unbroken reps. Yay! The second round didn’t go as well and I failed twice when I had completed a mere 11 reps. I was able to complete 36 unbroken reps on the 3rd attempt. I was once again able to complete 36 unbroken reps the 3rd round but failed the 16th rep of the 4th round. Dammit. I rested for a moment and completed 36 unbroken reps. Coach Nick yelled “Thirty-five reps!” He’s funny. Yeah, very funny.
I entered the box after completing the 4th round and glanced at the clock. Forty-five seconds. I quickly completed 9 deadlifts, sprinted to the wall, and completed a burpee handstand pushup with just a second to spare.
Score = 4 rounds + 10 reps
45 deadlifts, 37 burpee HSPUs, 72 GHD sit-ups, and a mile run.
