Today is the start of deload week.
Warm up: 3 x 55
40% x 5 = 5 x 65
50% x 5 = 5 x 80
60% x 5+ = 15 x 100
We got to do 3 workouts today! There's a running clock, and for the first 10 mins we had to do 3 rounds of:
- 10 snatches (Rx: 65 lbs)
- 10 hand stand push ups
On the 10th minute, we had to do 3 rounds of:
- 10 thrusters (Rx: 65 lbs)
- 10 chest-to-bar pull ups
On the 20th minute, we had to do 3 rounds of:
- 20 unbroken double unders
- 10 toes to bar
I used 50 lbs for both the snatch and the thrusters, did pike push ups instead of HSPUs, and used the blue band for the pull ups. I finished the first workout in 6:38; I finished the 2nd in 7:37; and I DNFed the last one. Boo hoo. But it was still a great WOD because I got to work on my DUs for 10 minutes. I couldn't get past 12 unbroken DUs and it was so frustrating. Arrgghhh!
After the workout, I told myself I deserved a drink -- a recovery drink, that is -- so I finally tried out SFH's chocolate flavored recovery protein powder.
