I need to remember to bring my gloves.
Our skill building portion consisted of toes-to-bar, dead lifts, sumo dead lifts, rope climbs, and tire flips. So, lots of gripping.
The skin on my hands is still crying. My husband offered no sympathy.
I also need to remember to secure my hair up and tight. Totally wasn’t thinking this morning when I did my hair like this.
It turned into this as soon as I started my warm-up.
We also worked on handstand pushups. Now that is a serious skill. I worked up to the handstand position, at least. The pushup part..well. I can let myself down about halfway with a controlled motion. All the blood rushing to my skull is going to take some getting used to. (Have to admit. It was a challenge doing those in a skirt. But I did.) I’ll be practicing more at home. Just have to find a wall that I won’t bust a hole in if I kick-up too hard.
So after all the skill building (45 minutes) we got to the workout!
For Time: 5 rounds
1 Rope Climb (I did it to scale – not fully confident in my grip yet. I did the #2 progression seen on this video.)
5 Deadlifts (#75)
10 Knee-Tucks (Scaled version of toes-to-bar)
My time: 8:14
I wanted under 10. Before we start, I tend to ask Coach how long he thinks it will take. And I try to beat that time. Today he said 10-15 minutes. That estimate got the beat-down.
I’m really working on upping my protein intake so I had a protein shake this morning, turkey for lunch, boiled eggs and some pork as soon as I got home and chicken with dinner. And that’s still not enough. I’ll have to have another shake before bed. Sheesh.
