Don't mess with the farmer's daughter...

So, after a brief hiatus last week to relax and let my blood pressure go down from the stress of work, I returned to the box yesterday to get my butt handed to me. I knew that with being out for four days I was going to feel it. And boy did I. Jerry threw up an AMRAP workout that just whooped me. I swear, I don't know how Jerry comes up with the stuff he does. I think he just sits around and is like, "Hmmmm... what would really, really suck? Aha! I've got it." And the next thing you know, it's on the white board. No, really. I swear this is how it goes. ;)

Regardless, yesterday's real workout was Nate. But seeing as how I can't do A muscle up, let alone several muscle ups (to necesitate an entire rack! ***points if you know where that came from!) in a workout not to mention the HSPU, I decided to go with the alternate WOD. The alternate WOD looked like this.

AMRAP in 20 minutes
6 ring dips
6 pull-ups
DB strict press rep out
8 kb swings (53 lbs)

Really, this hurt my arms very very badly. I was sweating quite profusely at the end of this. I got in 7+ rounds, but it didn't feel good. I'm also back to using a band on the ring dips. Crap. I've completely lost the strength in my triceps. Crap, crap, crap! Did I mention, crap!?! Afterwards, Jerry "encouraged" us to do some farmer's walks. If you haven't been around for awhile, then you may not know that farmer's walks and I, well we get along pretty well. Lt. Col. Dan maintains that it's because I grew up on a farm.... I say that that's a completely moot point... just because the name happens to be Farmer's Walk... :P I went to the rr tracks and back with only 1 drop on 30lb bells. Not too shabby. It's a good thing though cause my forearms were jacked, and I really didn't want to do anymore push-ups. :P Today's fun I'm told is front squats X 3. I'm stoked and can't wait! :) Snazzy shoes here I come!!!!! :0)

I did some farmer's walk stuff the other day for the first time with a pair of 85lb dumbbells at the end of my workout. Man....those things will test your grip strength for sure!

I love and hate farmer's walks all at the same time... I love to challenge myself and see if I can do it without dropping, but god I hate how much they hurt my forearms! Talk about fried... extra crispy!! :P
