Still not enough sleep last night. I need to get to bed earlier than I have been. We moved open gym up to 10am instead of noon, which was an adjustment to make my pancakes earlier this morning. Nice to be done early though, especially in the summer.
- 10 Reverse Hypers (140#)
- 10 PVC Passes
E90S – 6 Sets
- 5 C&J
This was basically meant as a way to warm up the body for the carrying. I used 45-75-95-115-125-135# and did every set quick touch-n-go reps. They felt really good!
- 1 Mile Barbell Carry (135#)
- 10 Barbell Push-ups (Each time you drop the bar)
Wanted to try something different outside today and luckily the chance of rain went away. Walking and breathing weren’t bad at all, it was the bar on my shoulders that made me stop. I did 3×200, 8×100, and 1×200 segments, so ended up with 11 sets of push-ups. Didn’t run a clock, but I think it took over 30 minutes.
- 10/10 Side V-ups
- 10/10 Leg Circles
- 20 Plank Jumps
- 40 Flutter Kicks
Finished in 10:10.
I wanted to trim all of the bushes around the house, but after doing three of them it started raining. So I fixed up the treadmill and was on the Airdyne by 7pm.
Year of the Engine – Polarized
21:00 Airdyne + Ski Erg
Done at endurance pace with a 7 second sprint at 4:00, 8, 12, and 16 on the clock and then recover right back to the endurance pace.
Always something! The bolts on the left pedal both snapped at 10:30 when I had 295 calories and 6,180 meters. I could tell my legs were fatigued from carrying that barbell earlier today because I was having a hard time holding 72-73 RPM. After the breakage I jumped on the Ski Erg to finish the other 10:30, sprinting at 1:00 and 5:00. Went 2,440 meters.
Now I have another machine to fix. FML!
