lots of new stuff last Thursday. It was refreshing.
I thought the warmup was going to be the normal routine. I walk about 5 minutes on the tread mill, then row 500 meters.
Not that day.
The new warmup kicked my ass. I did the normal 500 meter row, but then instead of stretching we jumped into 2 rounds of the following for time.
- 5 resistance pull ups
- 10 back squats with a light weight bar, more for form, not weight.
- 10 inch worm push ups
The new stretches were only a warmup for the conditioning round. This was brutal.
- push press with 10 lb weights, 15 reps
- box jump burpies, 12 reps
- a new exercise called a leg through. holding yourself up with your arms straight on raised platforms, you swing your legs front to back. It’s kind of hard to explain. It would be a lot easier with pictures. anyhow, I did 10 reps.
The idea was to do 3 rounds within 15 minutes. I got through 2 full rounds and then ran out of time on the last set of box jump burpies.
brutal conditioning round.
