Warm up: 1k and stretch

A: Bench Press 5-4-3-2-1 45/75/85/95/105

B: "Lynne"
5 rounds for max reps:
bodyweight bench press
pull ups

Results A: 45-75-85-95-105
I finally got to WOD with one of my friends and it was pretty fun. He kept pushing me and I finally maxed out at 105 lbs :) He was doing work too and I was very proud of him.

Results B:  25/15, 22/9, 16/7, 18/7, 17/6

I had to use a lighter weight at 45 lbs because we paired up. Even though I didn't go heavier, I was able to get in more reps. I think I did negative pull ups the whole time. PROUD! The girl I paired up with was such a good sport and so supportive. I'm glad we got to motivate each other to push for those extra 2-3 reps.

Warm up: 1k jog and stretch

A: Behind the neck split jerk 7x1 55*2,65*x,75*2, 95
5 ground to overhead
10 ring push ups

At the end of AMRAP, 400m sprint all out effort

Results A: 55x2, 65x2, 75x2, 95
I was really trying to keep my balance while I did the split.

Results B: I did ground to push jerk at 65 lbs. I was able to complete 7 rounds. Instead of ring push ups, I did 3-4 rounds of regular push ups and the rest were girl push ups.

400m run - 2:26 ... I'm slow, lol.

Warm up: 200 rope turns and stretch

Tabata row - rest 1 min
Tabata squat - rest 1 min
Tabata pull up - rest 1 min
Tabata push up - rest 1 min
Tabata sit up - rest 1 min

Tabata is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 intervals

I must say... it looked less challenging. Boy did I feel the burn, lol.

Tabata Results:
Row - 42 calories
Air Squats- 114
Pull Ups - 5 negative pull ups, 51 jumping pull ups
Push ups - 48 (scaled down to the knees about half way)
Sit ups - 53

It was a short work out, but I was DEAD.

Monday, September 3, 2012 -- Labor Day
Warm up: 1k jog and stretch

A: Front squat EMOTM for 7, 3 reps @70% 115 lbs

50 foot burpee broad jump
15 pull ups
Results A: My 70% would have been 98 lbs (or 100 lbs) but the person I paired up with, her max is 115. So to make it complicated, I just did 115 by adding a quick 25 lb weight to each side. Which is pretty high still, lol.

Results B: This was pretty fun, although tiring. I started off strong and eventually died midway, lol. I scaled my pull ups to jumping pull ups. I was able to get in 4 full rounds, complete the 50 foot burpee broad jump and 12 pull ups.

It was pretty full yesterday and I'm glad I got to went even though it was a holiday. I seriously tried to find reasons not to go, but I just can't stay away.

Sorry again for the lack of update. Hopefully I can set aside some time at night to blog so I can keep my logging up to date and keep you guys interested :p

And THANK YOU to all my followers/readers, I logged in today to be surprised that my website has finally gotten over 1000 hits!


Popular posts from this blog about that comfort zone

So, for the past year and a half, I have made it a point to do things to get out of my comfort zone. Even if it's as minuscule as going to farmers market. 
BTW, I went to a farmers market for the first time on Saturday! The BFF has been wanting to go and we finally had the chance to. So, you know how they sell organic and fresh produce? Yeah... We didn't get any of that. However, we did taste test some fruits and it was friggin bombskies! 

Nutella filled Hawaiian donut. What's up. 

BFF got her flowers and I got my macaroons from Munch Bakery. Turns out her dad and my dad golf together. 
Random question: how far would you drive to buy a couple pairs of pants?
To answer that for myself... 80 miles round trip... And the pants weren't even for me, lol. 
Shoutout to the BFF for sticking it out with me! 

After four, and I repeat, FOUR hours of searching for pants, the BFF and I met up with Big Bruddah at Gen KBBQ! Best decision of my life!
Another comfort-zone-breaker... I …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 

Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
