It’s Good to be Back

Workout:
5 Rounds for time: 
600 Meter Hill run
21 Cals Air Bike
21 Toes-to-Rings

Score: 20:12

Being back at my home gym is a great feeling so is using and Air Bike and Rings. This longer piece is what I needed. Was able to do all 21 Toes-to-rings unbroken which I will feel my core tomorrow.

The Air Bike got spicy. I tried my best to stick to a pace I could maintain through the workout and only fell off a few second each round. It’s great to be home and back to a normal workout routine, however it’s going to take some time to get my body feeling as strong, but it will happen.

Midline

AMRAP in 18 minutes:
8 Thrusters (85lbs)
10 Toes to rings
12 Burpees

Score: 9+16

This longer workout didn’t start hurting until the 5th round. At that point my lungs and my core started to feel it taxed and I began to dread the thrusters.

The reps were low and the rounds were short only 30 reps total. Everything was unbroken however the rest between sets got longer and longer. Which is to be expected.

Overall get workout and easy to jump right into if you are limited with time, and working the core is always a big bonus.

Love this style of workout, it plays with my mind especially when I’m doing a movement that I don’t enjoy (Deadlifts). This workout was designed to just be toes to rings and DL but I added in burpees to tax my core a little more and it worked.

The trunk is the foundation of any movement and I feel it is not talked about as often as it could be. This couplet is a total of 160 reps, and in a relativly short time frame. I recommend keeping your equipment close together and making your transitions as quick as possible.

This is a perfect workout to do if you are short on time. Which I was this evening.

Try it and let me know what you think.

I’ve Got This

EMOM for 20 minutes
5 Pause Overhead Squats (115/80lbs)
12 Burpees
5 Toes to rings, 10 Kettlebell snatches (1.5/1p)
20 meter Hand stand walk
15 Hollow Rocks

I have never been a morning person. I’m still not. But somehow it’s the only time I have to workout that doesn’t affect my family’s schedule too much. When the alarm goes off I take a deep breath and roll out of bed. And I’m a happier person for it.

Today was no different. It was challenging to motivate but knowing I had a partner to suffer with me this morning, my husband Jeremy, made it easier to get going.

Now I know why people write motivational sayings on their bathroom mirror. Times like these.

Sprint to the Finish

This mornings workout was a fun one. Three quick sprints with descending reps and weighs. I suggest doing a round of 6 reps of each movement before jumping into the workout so it’s not a total shock to the body.

Lungs and lower body caught up with me. Squatting every other movement hurt, with a combination of the body weight movement made this workout intense, quickly. Definitely a workout I would like to retest in the evening instead of 6am. Overall glad I was able to get the workout in before the family woke up.
