Faster in Round Two

Well, more changes to life, as the State of Michigan ordered restaurants, bars, theaters, fitness centers, and many other types of businesses to close starting at 3pm yesterday. So I’m glad I stopped going to the gym last week. Looks like it’ll be garage gym workouts for the foreseeable future.

Yesterday I walked 20 minutes on the treadmill, going 1.38 miles, did some monster walks with the hip circle, and my banded PT exercises. Before I ate lunch today I did some PT exercises and the core stability work.

Midline

McGill Big 3

  • 9-7-5 Curl-up
  • 9-7-5 Side Plank
  • 9-7-5 Bird Dog

I really wanted to do these yesterday since I’m switching them to a Monday, Thursday, Saturday schedule. Increased the reps again too.

Out in the garage at 4pm.

Warm-up

  • Monster Walks (black band, ankles)
  • 2×15 Steamboats (blue)

Strength

5 Sets

  • 24 Walking Lunges with 30-degree diagonal step (single DB, switch arms after 12, 30#)
  • 10/10 Step Downs (15″)

My left leg felt much better on the step downs today. Almost couldn’t even notice a difference.

Conditioning

box

2 Rounds

  • 20 Burpees
  • 30 Box Jumps (24/20″)
  • 20 Burpees
  • Rest 5:00

This was my first day doing any burpees since the back tweak. My times were 3:51 and 3:45. The ultimate goal was to go the same speed or maybe even faster in the second round. After getting through my burpees 10 seconds faster I knew I could do it. Felt great that I was able to pull that off!

Accessory

  • 100 Band Pull Aparts (blue)
  • 100 Band Curls (red)

I did 50-30-20 on the pull aparts and 4×25 on the curls. Both were harder than expected!
