Since 4pm Sunday, Andy has been telling me how the workout I came up with was brutal and horrible and how it was one of the hardest workout’s he’s ever done.
Something I imagined caused that much pain? Little ole’ me?
A little perspective: we worked out on Saturday at home, too. And it was nothing to sneeze at.
I got 2 reps at 85, but on the third, my wrists were hurting so much that I just couldn’t manage the load. 80# felt much better
30 DB Snatch (25# DB — 15 on each side)
20 DB Snatch
10 DB Snatch
Time: 10:56 @ 25#
We went back and forth over whether to do this one. It was lightning all around and we wanted to be done fast. In the end, it never rained on us, and it was pretty fast after all/
On Sunday I wanted to squeeze in a workout before hanging out with some friends.
4 rounds (1 min/45 sec/30 sec/15 sec)
Max reps of:
Wall Ball (6# med ball)
Med ball clean
KB Swings (1 pood or 35#)
Shoulder Pres (45# bar)
Results: IT WAS REALLY HARD (no reps recorded)
Andy timed me while playing with the kids in the sandbox. He said it was painful to watch. It was SOOOO hard. I didn’t realize it was going to be that hard. When it was Andy’s turn, he plowed through, but I think it gave him heat exhaustion. He just lay on the ground — and later on the floor — for a really long time. He said it was reminiscent of Fight Gone Bad.
