The First Day Back is Kind of Rough

After basically doing only 2 real WODs in 2 weeks, the first day back was a bit rough for me. However, it was nice to be back.

WOD: 2 Parts

Max Effort:
Shoulder Press

Push Press

Rest 5 Minutes

5 Rounds:

1 Rope Climb
15 Ring Dips
15 Toes to Bar
15 Wall Ball Subs

I didn't know what my max was for either the shoulder press or the push press so I experimented. The heaviest weight I could do for shoulder press was 75 lbs. I thought that was pretty great. For push press, I made it to 100 lbs, which was super great (for me, ok? Geez, it's not like I'm Kathryn or something).

I made it through the rest of the workout, doing Jumping Ring Dips. I am getting better at those so hopefully I will be able to do real ring dips soon. The Toes to Bar was alright. My arms got more tired than my abs though, so I had to switch between Toes to Bar and Knees to Elbows and L-Sits. I also started with 20 lbs for the Wall Ball Subs. For round 3 I upped it to 25 lbs. The Net Climb was fine. I was slow, though. We didn't do it for time. I am so glad to be back.
