My parents have a dog named So-Crates. Not Socrates like the philosopher. Well, kind of like the philosopher, but from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Normal, I know.
Moving right along…the little man is napping (yes, he still naps twice a day. Yes, I love it), so after doing a ton around the house, I figured I’d sit down and recap today’s workout. I was starting to think that maybe this was silly to do, since I haven’t gotten a single comment on a single WOD post, but then I decided it doesn’t matter. Even if no one is reading these posts, I’m doing them for me! I want to see how I’m improving, and I think writing it all down is the best way!
We started doing 12 minutes of ladder drills.
I am definitely lacking in the coordination department, so this is a challenge for me, but fun. I have to look at the ladder the whole time, but managed not to fall at all! Bonus 🙂
Then we did a mini strength WOD.
10,8,6,4,2 reps for quality
- Bench Press 70% (max weight)
- Ring Row
I did 65# on the bench press. I’ve actually never in my life before done a bench press with a barbell, only with dumbbells (I’ve gotten as heavy as 22.5), so this was good, considering before I only ever did 45 total! The last 1 or 2 of each set was a challenge for sure. As for ring dips, well…I’m just a spazz! We did this in my intro class and I thought they were the hardest thing in the whole world. Much easier now 🙂
4 Rounds for reps:
- 40s Squat Clean 115/80
- 20s Rest
- 40s Push-up
- 20s Rest
This WOD was basically a Tabata on steroids.
I used 45# on the squat cleans, which was just way too light. That’s what I did last time we did squat cleans, which was such a challenging workout it didn’t occur to me to go heavier. I definitely have to because I did way too many reps! I also used a band for support on the push ups since your chest has to touch the ground. In the 4 rounds I did 48 squat cleans, and 66 push ups. Way too many squat cleans this time!!
