Monday – May 17 – Month Half Over

Wow, it’s hard to believe that May is almost over! I feel a bit sore starting the week since I worked out in my yard over the weekend. But, I’m sure I’ll make it through whatever the workout is going to be.


Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face – Mike Tyson

COMPLETE
  WORKOUT (~25:00)

For max reps:
10 Rounds
0:10 Pull-ups (attempted 3 or 4 each time)
0:10 Rest
0:20 Push-ups (on knees)
0:20 Rest

Ok – these crossfit writers are nuts! Just amazes me how they write the workouts to look “easy” but then you are reminded oh just 10 rounds of these.

Then, 15:00 AMRAP
50 Air squats @ fast pace (I did 3 complete sets and 10 air squats of 4th set)
400m Run @ EZ pace (I biked 21 calories on the echo bike.)

*For both sections, wear a weight vest if you plan to wear a weight vest for Murph.

Notes The Murph prep for today is broken into two parts with no rest between. For part one, try to move at a steady pace during each work interval. For part two, squat at a pace that allows you to complete all 50 reps with little to no rest. Score is total reps combined.
Each 100m equals 1 rep.
Pull-ups *No vest. *Jumping pull-ups.
Push-ups *Band assisted push-up or incline push-up.
Air squat *If newer to squatting, reduce reps to 30 or use upright assistance.
Run *Reduce the distance if efforts will be longer than 2:30.

Minimal Equipment Option *If you don’t have a pull-up bar, do a bent over dumbbell/bag row.

Ok this was tough. My legs hurt! Hopefully standing in the shower will help me out.
Have a good day everyone! Off to shower, grab my things and head to work.
