THOUGHTS ON SATURDAY’S WOD:
47:08 to do a workout that involves zero equipment! (74-44-11 reps for time of burpees, push-ups, sit-ups, and squats) The tough part of the workout was going from burpees to push-ups. I hated this part and loved that part. Here’s what I mean. A year ago I couldn’t do a single scaled box push-up, never mind a regular push-up due to a torn bicep and a torn rotator cuff. About 6 weeks ago I started doing real push-up workouts. I’m still not where I used to be but it’s getting better. And I did all 129 push-up reps with strict form. The only thing touching the ground was my toes, my hands, and my chest. What I hated about it was I could only do 4 push-ups at a time with between 10 and 20 seconds rest in between. It took so long. The push-ups were enough of challenge and time consumer that the sit-ups and squats felt like a rest. I was glad I did it when I finished. I contemplated scaling to box push-ups in the second round but didn’t. I stayed the course. It’s always good to finish a difficult and lengthy workout. If you did this one let me know your thoughts.
I’m going to repeat some of the stuff from Friday or Saturday for those of you who tune-out toward the end of the week. My apologies for those of you who read this already, bear with me please!
What do you need as far as coaching is concerned? Some give me regular feedback, many do not. If we can be of assistance or the bodyweight workouts are not doing it for you please reach out to me. You don’t have to do so in the comment section. You can text me at any hour. If you are concerned with bothering me that’s impossible (okay, very highly unlikely). If I absolutely do not want to be disturbed you won’t be able to get a hold of me. Leave the text I’ll get back to you.
We send workouts just about every day. Do not feel pressured to work out every day. You could work out every day if you are taking care of sleep and nutrition, but don’t feel obligated to work out every day. Most of all, don’t feel guilty when you don’t work out as long as you don’t let that turn into weeks of not working out.
If you just need to talk, same procedure, let me know. We’re here.
