Today we did a 15 minute AMRAP triplet. Run 400m, 10 burpees, 10 pull-ups.
I scaled, still a bit gun shy on the hand injury. So instead of burpees, I did the Pistol Pete sit-up special. You laid down flat and hold a bar straight up parallel to you. Then you keep the bar up and sit up, pushing your head through your arms (like a lift). It was an awesome workout. I definitely needed the core workout.
I also did jumping pull ups, but I think next time it’s a pull-up workout, I will use the band. I’m not sure the jumping pull ups are making me any stronger.
Workout was tough. Hard to not stop running. But I made it through. I really hate running and need to work on my endurance a bit more. This means not skipping out on workouts which are endurance workouts. I think today’s AMRAP and this weekend’s Hero WoD was a good start. The last two 400m runs were tough!
After the fourth run, I had about 1 minute to complete the sit-ups and the pull-ups. I hauled ass because I really wanted to finish at least four rounds.
Total Score: 4 rounds even
