Saturday – Rest Day
A rest day, if you will…although I don’t really consider many of our weekend days ‘rest days’ because there is always something to do. On Saturday, we finished/worked on finishing cleaning out the garage to make room for the new gym equipment. We still have a few things to do (like added shelving) but we’ll get there!
Sunday – CrossFit
A “Crazy Eights” workout, after some squat work – I did 5×4 sets of 115lbs.
Robert beat me, but just barely
I did some push press work afterwards, just with the 45lb bar…nothing crazy
Burned about 615 calories in 75 minutes (forgot to turn off my HR monitor)
Monday – Rest Day
I had a lunch meeting so no workout this day.
Tuesday – CrossFit
Bench press was the workout but since I am not supposed to lay on my back, I did strict press instead at 55lbs (5 sets of 4)
5x Wall walks (I did 30 second plank holds since I can’t be upside down)
10x Wall balls (20#14#) 15x sit-ups Rest 1 minute then Run 1200m
Got 120 reps. Finished the run in about 9 minutes.
Burned 568 calories in 60 minutes.
Wednesday – CrossFit
Front Squat – 5-rep-max. I worked up to 95. I went for 105 but got 2 and thought better of it.
Run, Squat, Pull
10x Front Squats (55#)
5x Pull-ups (I did ring rows)
5x Ring dips (I did push ups)
I think my pull ups and ring dips aren’t going to get any better with me using the bands I’m using, so I’m going back to the ‘beginners’ stuff to see if I can gain strength that way…I’ll report back to tell you how it goes
Burned 556 calories in 65 minutes.
Thursday – Rest Day
We have a new person at work so we took her to lunch! Not to mention Brooke gave me her cold so I was kind of glad to have the day off.
Friday – CrossFit
Deadlift – 4×2 at 85% – I used 145lbs
Karen plus Death
EMOM 4 Burpees
