Another Fun Day!

5 Rounds for time of:

200 Meter run with bumper plate (Men 45 lb plate, Women 25 lb plate)
10 Handstand push-ups
15 Toes to bar

My time: 22:53 - mod HSPU (head to 2 abmats)

This was a fun workout, once I figured out a decent way to carry the plate. Started out holding it in my arms, close to my chest. No good. Tried on top of my head. No good. Tried holding with a single arm for 100m then switching to the other for 100m. That was "ok". But the best way I found was to put it on my back, up high, like where you would put a bar for back squats. This way I could keep (sort of) running rather than a walk.

HSPU still need some depth. I need to give up 1 of the abmats and get more depth. I'm still hoping to be able to do a real one by the end of the year.

Toes to bar are always a good ab workout.

Warm up included 1000m row 5:09 (slow), and no lifting today.

Very fun morning!!!

  1. I also need to get rid of an Ab Mat... but then I find myself going S-L-O-W to "find" the bottom, and when I slow down that much, I get stuck. Doh! The trick is definitely to keep 'em fast, like a squat -- steady down and when you hit the bottom POP back up. :-D
