“Tabata Something Else”

Complete 32 intervals of 20 seconds of work followed by ten seconds of rest where the first 8 intervals are pull-ups, the second 8 are push-ups, the third 8 intervals are sit-ups, and finally, the last 8 intervals are squats. There is no rest between exercises.

My total: 294

This is up from March 22 (the last compare-to date), but not up to my PR of April 2010. I felt really strong on everything today except pull ups. They sucked. I was weak. I didn't push at all on them and my number suffered because of my weak-minded attitude toward them. No excuses...I just wimped out. However, I kicked ass on the sit ups and squats. :)

We got to work on Split Jerks this morning. It's been a while since we've worked these. It's actually one of my favorite lifts and I'd love to get stronger on them. I think on the next Wendler cycle, I'm going to go to this lift in place of shoulder press.

Despite my admitted weakness on pull-ups today, over all, I felt really strong and good and happy to be working out. I think I'm starting to come out of a valley. That's the way it is with CrossFit (at least for me)...peaks & valleys. It's always nice to be heading up! Been in the bottom for way too long.
