Seriously, I thought yesterday's workout was pretty wicked. Heavy chins AND heavy thrusters? Dang. Little did I know what was in store for today. What was in store in the Blue Room of pain? Oh, well, it was the SAME workout, with DIFFERENT exercises. Ow...
Today's warm-up was a progression from a deadlift to a hang squat clean, using a med ball (which I suck at BTW). After that, Jerry had us warm up our hang squat cleans because (you guessed it) we went heavy ring dips and heavy hang squat cleans. Soooo... today's fun looked like this.
DL with med ball
DL with shrug with med ball
Front squat with med ball
Squat clean with med ball
Hang squat clean X5
Ring dips X5
Men's load- 155lbs
(Anyone else notice that these are the game weights???!?!)
This just hurt. I smashed the crap out of my collar bone so now it matches nicely with the mark I made yesterday on the underside of my chin. As the Guinness guys would say, BRILLIANT!But, but, yes there is a but. I did this sadly still with the floss for ring dips (I'd love to be able to do my own bodyweight but I'm still working on it) BUT I did do the squat cleans as RX'd. Yeah, word that's 100 lbs. And, you know what else? I hit 10 rounds again. Nope, not lying. That's 100lbsX50 reps. You know, I don't know about you, but I'll go ahead and call that a decent day. :P
Jerry said that since I was going heavy and I was in yesterday I should call it at 10 rounds. So I did. Not that I'm complaining mind you. I was ready to be done. I did 10 rounds of this in 22:10. I think I could have done more rounds, but the squat cleans are a killer. Damn 2 for 1 deals. :P Jerry took a few snapshots today... maybe if there are any good ones I'll post one up later. But I have to work dayshift today... boo hiss... not a fan of dayshift... so I should clean my smelly self up. Adrienne, I missed you this morning. I was looking forward to being able to get into your pants... ;) (No, I'm not really a perv... well yeah I am, but not in this case... read the comments from Sunday's post you silly goose.:P Sorry Adrienne, the 13 year old in me couldn't resist.... :) )
