Rainy Days and Mondays (as well as Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursday, and Fridays)

Tuesday, October 23

Row 100 strokes for maximum calories; complete burpee at top of each minute

I rowed 115 calories, 2,069m, average of 10 strokes/min and in time of 12:55; thus 12 burpees total.

1-2-3…13-14-15-15-14-13…3-2-1 mountain climbers/leg with burpee at beginning of each round

Holy shitballs, this was tough on the abs. I set a goal to complete all rounds of mountain climbers in unbroken reps, and the struggle was real.

Time = 13:32

Wednesday, October 24

Press
6X3

I completed sets @ 65, 75, 85, 95, 105, & 115

1-2-3…13-14-15-15-14-13…3-2-1 air squats with strict C2B pull-up at the beginning of each round

Dear god, that was tough. That’s 240 air squats and 30 pull-ups in a time of 8:50.

1-2-3…13-14-15-15-14-13…3-2-1 Abmat sit-ups with strict HSPU at the beginning of each round

This was tougher than the air squats and pull-ups! I completed in 17:44 with unbroken reps of sit-ups and no failed HSPUs.

Thursday, October 25

100 strict ring dips in rounds of unbroken reps (no pausing between reps)
Accumulated total of 50 strict pushups
DL @ 315#
Rest 1 minute between rounds

I completed 15 strict ring dips the 1st round, 10 the 2nd round, 9 the 3rd and 4th rounds, 8 the 5th round, and 7 reps the remaining 7 rounds. Yup, 12 rounds total. Uhm, and deadlifting 315# at the end of the round (instead of at the beginning, as a weak-ass athlete might do) was particularly challenging. I did pause a moment to put on weightlifting belt and set up for lift.

I told myself to do half of the number of reps of ring dips when completing pushups; thus, I didn’t keep a running total. And I completed 55 pushups. Ha!

Total work time = 12:15 (Accumulated time 23:15.)

Friday, October 26

It rained all last night and all day today. Ick. I worked out in the garage with the garage door closed. I retrieved the space heater from the storage closet and heated the garage before beginning my workout. I was also wearing sweatpants (over shorts) and a long sleeve shirt (over tee) when I began. Fortunately, I was able to partially disrobe during the workout.

Every 20 seconds for 63 rounds (21 minutes)
DL + HPC + PP + BS + behind the neck PP + BOR @ 65#

My fourth day working out, so I went light on the weight but “heavy” on the reps. Each round took about 10 seconds, so 10 seconds of work and 10 seconds or rest.

Uhm, yeah, so I forgot to post some earlier workouts. Here goes!

Thursday, October 11

I took Luke for a rainy walk at Carrier and then took Cinna for a walk in the neighborhood. ‘Twas soggy. Very soggy.

9-min AMRAP
1 strict burpee + 1 mountain climber (l/r = 1 rep) + 1 jumping lunge (l/r = 1 rep) + 1 deadlift @ 185# + 15 LBH

~ Rest exactly 3 minutes ~

7-min AMRAP
1 strict burpee + 1 mountain climber (l/r = 1 rep) + 1 jumping lunge (l/r = 1 rep) + 1 deadlift @ 185# + 5 LBH

~ Rest exactly 3 minutes ~

7-min AMRAP
1 strict burpee with 2 pushups + 2 mountain climbers (l/r = 1 rep) + 2 jumping lunges (l/r = 1 rep) + 1 deadlift @ 225# + 10 LBH

~ Rest exactly 3 minutes ~

5-min AMRAP
1 strict burpee with 3 pushups + 3 mountain climbers (l/r = 1 rep) + 3 jumping lunges (l/r = 1 rep) + 1 deadlift @ 275# + 15 LBH

Wowza, this was a gasser. BTW, I often adjust workout during the workout, and today was no exception. I had planned on completing same rep scheme for all rounds, i.e., 1 of all reps and 5 LBH, but decided to make it more challenging by increasing reps. And it worked, as the 9-min round was much easier than than the 5-min round, and this had little to do with weight of deadlifts.

I completed 25 reps + burpee + mountain climber + jumping lunge the 1st round, 13 reps + burpee with 2 pushups + 2 mountain climbers + 2 jumping lunges the 2nd round, an 7 rounds + burpee with 3 pushups + 3 mountain climbers the last round.

That’s 48 burpees, 76 pushups, 76 mountain climbers, 73 jumping lunges, 45 deadlifts, & 360 LBH. I. Was. Dead.

Friday, October 12

It’s Fall. I took Luke and Cinna for a walk at Carrier Park, and I had to wear a hoodie. And gloves. Dammit.

EMOM 30
1 strict pull-ups
2 strict K2E
3 45# sandbag squats
4 (2/leg) sandbag box (20″)  step-ups

Each round took about 30 seconds. This was the active recovery that I needed.

5-min AMRAP
5/leg grasshoppers
5 Russian KBS, 53#

Exhausting. I completed 12 rounds + 5 reps.
