Deadlifts and an AMRAP

Quick post today, lots of meetings and stuff.

Today’s workout was a good one.  Build to a heavy 5 reps (not necessarily your 5RM) deadlifts in 20 minutes and then an AMRAP 8: 8 KB Swings at 35#, 10 sit-ups, 8 Deadlifts at 95#

Got to 205#, could have probably gone heavier, but my wrist was not having any of it at the 4th and 5th rep at 205.  Overall, I’m happy with that as I wasn’t going for my 5RM, just going heavy!

The AMRAP was tough.  It’s a lot of collapsing your body, which made it hard for me to breathe.  I think I went out too fast and ended up getting gassed at the end (despite John’s warning about going out too fast…)  I think my score was 6+11.  I’m sure my abs will start feeling this tomorrow (my hamstrings and glutes already do).

My friend Dani posted this today on FB and it was really good timing.  I needed this today.

Also, just because we all need to see a little bacon during the day.
