10/11/11-WOD sorta

Had acupuncture appt before CPR class and thought I’d been good to do 6:30pm today but was dragging and very sore from being a pin cushion so I did the class warmup, benched off of the ground and did shoulder rehab

Early soul cycle class in the morning we will see how grumpy I am mid-afternoon


9:30am - Soul Cycle Class - this was so much harder than any spin class I have ever done. Woozers!

5pm - worked on my 3 mobility issues and shoulder rehab

Jumping Squats with Chains
5x3 (65,85,105,115,125 + 45# in chains (1small+1 large on each side)) -impressed Cheeks and I both got to 170#!

21, 15, 9 reps for time of:
Push-ups - to a yoga block
Pull-ups - inverted row on bar chest high
Box Jumps, 24″ (scaled up)

5 sets of max reps Double Unders. - approx 20ish each time….first time jumping rope since July so only mildly disappointing. In video I notice my arms are very far out from body. I think I need to shorten my rope and then really work on keeping them close and only using wrist

Tired doing a strict pull up - hurt my shoulder a lot. Tried two strict chin ups and not as taxing on my shoulder

Fighting a losing battle against fall allergies and my sinus are taking a beating. It’s very frustrating because I finally have the time to train and get back at it but physically can’t operate at 100%…got rx for nasal spray and antibiotics so hopefully relief is in sight.

5 min - active warm up 70%
9 min - 3sets x3min - seated / increase resistance each min
3 min - standing at top resistance
1 min - seated at top resistance
9 min - 3 x3min cycles (2 min seated / 1 min standing) seated quick pace / standing spring increase resistance each 3 min set
