Oct 24 WOD: Push up sets from hell + Wendler

I wasn't able to workout last Monday because of mommy duties, and I was so happy to be back at the box today. Ahh, I love breathing in the smell of rubber whenever I come in.

Strength: Dead lifts

I kicked off my third cycle of the Wendler 5/3/1 today by doing one of my favorite lifts -- dead lifts! My sets:

Warm up: 5 x 65; 5 x 85; 5 x 95

5 x 65% = 5 x 110
5 x 75% = 5 x 130
5+ x 85% = 7 x 145


My first workout after Brave Mudders and I had to DNF it. Today, we had to do sets of 50-40-30-20-10 hand release push ups. But that's not all. Before each round, we had to do 40 double unders and 30 walking lunges.

There was a 20 min time cap and I made it up to 6 walking lunges after the third set (30 HRPUs) when time ran out. In our class of 4, only Pao finished within the time cap -- I guess doing plyo does have its benefits!
