Eeek! I’m late getting this out to you! It has been a long couple of weeks and I’m so behind in life! Erik and I have been traveling every weekend since the beginning of May. I actually didn’t go out of town this weekend (he did), but instead of getting caught up on my to-do lists, (like I was supposed to do) I spent most of my time in the gym. 😉
I’ve been practicing a lot of OLY lifts (clean and jerks, snatches) because I’ve kinda let them go recently. Between shoulder injuries and my power-lifting/strongman training, it’s hard to find time to work on those movements. But this weekend I got to work on them and that made me feel a lot better. I also hit a couple PRs on deadlift and strict press, and I also got a lot of conditioning work in (time to step up my sprinting) and even got to introduce the concept of interval training to a group of awesome ladies.
Who cares that the office still isn’t organized and that I might still have some Christmas snowmen floating about the house? :/
Ok, so your workout…is one you will LOVE…when it’s OVER.
- 50 Warrior Stands
Warrior stands: Grab two equal weights, hold them over your head, arms locked out, and kneel down to the floor (both knees) then stand back up again. Don’t bend your arms! (If you look at the feature picture, I’m struggling to keep my arms straight! These are tough and I’m only using 20# kettlebells!!) Keep the weights overhead the entire time. See how many you can do before you take a break.
If it’s any motivation to you, I had my bootcampers do 30 this morning, and a few of them decided “Heck with 30,” and did 100!!! I’m telling you, I’ve never met harder workers. Let’s get this done!
And if you don’t have weights? 100 lunges and 50 hand stand push-ups for time. It’s ok if you can’t do a handstand push-up. Find a couch, put your knees or feet on it, hands on the floor and practice that way!!
