Dirty Thirty and Death by Rowing

The past few WODs have been good. Hard enough to make you miserable but not bad enough to make you want to quit.

Wednesday, 3 September

WOD: Dirty Thirty

30 Box Jumps
30 Jumping Pull-Ups
30 KB Swings
30 Walking Lunges
30 Sit-Ups
30 Push Presses
30 Back Extensions
30 Wall Balls
30 Burpees
30 Double Unders

Yes, I realize this is the Filthy Fifty with only 30 reps. However, that was the WOD and I did it. I used 45lbs for the Push Presses, 25lbs for the KB Swings, and a 12lb ball for the Wall Balls. I finished in 17:21, which I am kind of proud of, since I have never done it that fast before.

Tuesday: Cake day.

Monday, 1 September

WOD:

Warm Up:

AMRAP in 10 Minutes of:
2 TGUs per side
1 Rope Climb

WOD: 3 Rounds of:

1000m Row
50 Box Jumps
30 American KB Swings

I managed to get through 4 rounds of the warm-up. I used a 20lb KB for this and climbed the net.

I used a 25lb KB for the American KB Swings and completed the WOD in 36:30. I would have been done faster, except I had to take a break after the first round since thought for sure I was going to toss my cookies. I didn't, but still. Good workout.
