Went to a Games workout today


AMReps in 14 mins:

60 Row (calories)s

50 Toes-to-bars

40 Wall Balls, 20 lbs, 10 ft

30 Cleans, 135 lbs

20 Muscle-ups

I have a score of 182 on this one which means I finished the cleans and got 2 Muscle ups before time ran out. I looked through my notes and thought I would try to break things up a little and see if I was able to do better. I did, in fact make a difference in my performance by breaking things into more manageable chunks.

I rowed 60 as fast as possible, then did sets of 10 on T2B, then 20, 10, 10 on Wall Balls and 5,5,5,5,3,2,3,2 on Cleans. At this point I had almost a minute and a half left to do 3 muscle ups to beat my previous score. I was smoked and made 3-4 attempts and failed on all of them.

So, while I did improve my performance on the bulk of the workout, I still came up short of my previous score. In this one, those muscle ups are incredibly important as a lot of people can do the workout but have never done a muscle up. Others, like me will fail. Getting 1 muscle up can move you up the leaderboard 1000 places, easy. Not today

We finished with 10 minutes of Gratitude which is a great way to start a MONDAY.

Go get it!
