Dumbbell burpee complex
(With dumbbells do a push-up, squat clean, thruster complex)
My time: 18:27, w/25 lb dumbbells
This one kicked my butt! I pretty well kept up with B & Dylan for the first 10 reps, but it was all downhill from there. Actually I did pretty well through about 20 reps and then, I gave in to the urge to rest too much. The part right after the push up, where you jump to a squat and then do the squat clean...just burns SO bad, I found myself resting between those two movements way too often.
How in the world do you people push through that agonizing, burning pain in your quads? Can someone answer that for me? Please?
Is it all in my head? (I don't think so...I think it's in my legs.) I mean, it honestly feels like I would actually experience total failure of that muscle if I attempted to "push through" it - you know, just crumble to the ground.
Perhaps I should try it sometime and see what happens, eh?
The Devil on my left shoulder says, "No way!"
The Angel on my right shoulder says, "Maybe." *grin*
In other news, I did set a PR today on Split Jerk. Yay me!
