WoD – Interval Training – Pull-Ups and Push Press

Today’s WoD

3 rounds

20 seconds push press (45#)

20 seconds transition

20 seconds pull ups (jumping pull ups from box)

2:00 rest in between rounds

Then rest 7:00 minutes and repeat

First Set Score: 56

  1. 11 push press, 7 pull-ups (jumping)
  2. 11 push press, 7 pull-ups (jumping)
  3. 11 push press, 9 pull-ups (jumping)

Second Set Score: 65

  1. 12 push press, 9 pull-ups (jumping)
  2. 12 push press, 9 pull-ups (jumping)
  3. 13 push press, 10 pull-ups (jumping)

The second set was obviously better than the first one.  Possibly because I knew my limits from the first one.  Who knows.  

I also think that I went too light on the push press, but my arms have been really tired as of late when I do pull ups or anything bi-cep / shoulder heavy.  They ache as if I have growing pains, which I haven’t had since I was a teenager. I believe it’s because these muscles were essentially non-existent and now I’m pushing them and growing them.  Hence … growing pains.  I talked to some other people at the gym about the pains, and will definitely be taking a rest day tomorrow (for the 4th of July).  Hopefully I can get through the day eating clean.
