A Little Long

Worked out a little before noon.

“Brenton”

5 Rounds

  • 100′ Bear Crawl
  • 100′ Broad Jumps

**Do 3 burpees after every 5 broad jumps.

I hadn’t done this workout since 2015 summer vacation, with a time of 8:17. Found a spot where I could do the full 100 feet in one shot, which always helps. It ended up being closer to 110 though after remeasuring! Got 10:25 with my last round being my fastest at 1:43.

5 Sets

  • 10/10 Lateral Step-ups (33″)
  • 20 Plank Jumps
  • 20 Squat Jumps

Kind of nasty with the high step. Took me 14:11.

Like Whoa

Rained all night and all morning. Waited for the ground to dry up before hitting this around 3.

5 Rounds

  • 100′ Bear crawl
  • 100′ Broad Jumps
  • Do 3 burpees after every 5 broad jumps.

My favorite outdoor workout, probably because I cover a lot of ground on my jumps. I did it 3 and 2 years ago on vacation, but missed it last year for whatever reason. I thought I might have a 100 foot strip to use, but the yard wasn’t big enough, so I had to use a 50 foot piece there and back. Luckily it didn’t result in enough difference to screw up my broad jumps and make me do more burpees. I was able to make it across the 50 feet in 7 jumps every time, so only did 6 burpees every round. My time from 2 years ago was 9:23 (100′ strip) and 10:16 the year before. I smoked those with an 8:17! Whoa!! I think I was actually a lot better at the bodyweight stuff 2 years ago, but maybe not.

Hard and Fast

E90S for 8 Rounds

  • 50y Sprint

Felt pretty good. Walked back to the start and had about 25 seconds to sit and wait for the next round. Recovery was good to be able to go hard every run.

Midline

10 Rounds

  • 15s Hollow Rocks
  • 15s Rest

Got 13 in the first round and then 12s for a total of 121 rocks. Bumped it up 2 more rounds from what we did a couple of Sundays ago.

Playground as a Box

Drive over to Hinks School a little before 8am to beat the heat.

For a warmup I did a 400m run, band pass-thrus, Band pull aparts, and band walks with a red band.

Then I was going to do a bunch of muscle-ups and try stringing 2 together. But on my first try at a double a had an awkward fall out forward and got scared to commit after that. Only managed to do 3 total MU. Just not my day for them.

10:00 EMOM

  • Odds: 5 Fat bar chin-ups (strict)
  • Evens: 10 Bar dips (feet on ground)

“Brenton”
5 rounds

  • Bear crawl 100 feet
  • Standing broad-jump, 100 feet.
    Do three Burpees after every five broad-jumps.

Did this in a field next to the school and measured out 100 feet with a tape measure. Was starting to heat up so hurried to get it over with. Finished in 9:23, besting the 10:16 from a year ago. Big difference being able to go 100 feet straight Instead of looping back and forth on 25 feet. I only had to do 6 burpees each round.

This was the first WOD where I felt normal since the Tough Mudder.

Around 3pm I jumped on the Air Dyne for some intervals. Warmed up with 5:00 easy first. This is another form of MAP.

10 Rounds

  • 30s @ 90-95%
  • 30s @ 50%

At high intensity I was going 90+ rpm and 45-50 at low intensity. Racked up 286 calories and 3.5 miles.

After golfing 9 holes with Dad (we ride due to heat), I went out for a sled drag after 8pm. Only loaded 125# because the 10# bumpers were on the bar and I didn’t feel like messing with it. Went 0.58 miles in 17:03 with only a short water break at the turnaround point. Was much easier than a couple days ago.
