Holy mother of God I’m sore today. It appears I’m not alone though. Even the coaches were foam rolling and moaning with us in class.
Warm Up: The usual
SWOD: Bench Press! 3×10
Dude, I haven’t even tried to bench since college. And I remember the last time I did it I did the bar. And thought I was cool. Yay for new equipment that means new exercises!
1×10@33 warm up
1×10@43 warm up 2
Since I haven’t done these like, ever, every set was a PR. But I was pretty happy with 63, it was heavier than I thought I would be capable of. And truthfully, it wasn’t that heavy. The last 2 reps were where my arms started to fatigue, but had it been a shorter rep set I could have gone significantly heavier.
WOD: Double tabata- SDHP and Goblet Squats
Score: 93 Rx!
So here’s my sadistic admission for the day. I really like tabata. Even a double. It’s still short, sweet, to the point and there’s a built in rest period of trying not to vomit.
That said, I really don’t like goblet squats. I think if my boobs were to sweat less they would be easier, but since my entire body just sort of turns into a slip and slide after the second round, I have to kettle bell wrangle with gusto. It’s complex.
This was fun. I was also really proud of myself for not using the KB I would usually use and stepping it up to Rx weight. I know I’m physically capable of doing it, I just usually don’t push myself to. I need to keep pushing.
