Friday’ “Filthy 50” – June 25

Another week has gone by. Two days out of the gym this week but it’s ok, I did do workouts.
Now rest over the weekend and then back to the gym on Monday.

Ok, why do I look at these workouts ahead?? I’m not sure how I’m going to accomplish this one. But, I guess, whatever Matt thinks I can do is what I will attempt.

Well, went to class and the warm-up felt like the workout!! Then, I was waiting for a scale but didn’t really get one – so I decided to just do what I could with each one. Didn’t really matter how slow I was – just try to do the correct amount.

I felt much slower today than sometimes because it was so warm out it was hard to catch my breathe.

Even though it was tough it was a good workout. Have a great day everyone!

Summertime is always the best of what might be.

  GENERAL WARM-UP (~10:00)

30 Single unders
15 Russian swings (light) 20# (Matt tried to say 35# was light….)

  TRANSITION (~6:00)

Several of the movements have been prepped for in the general warm-up today. However, the transition for this workout will still take some time. Talk about the time goals for the workout and the workout options for completing the intended stimulus. Allow time to practice and get set up as needed.

Notes This is a benchmark test that is a long duration and light-loaded chipper. Top times will be less than 20:00. Ideally, athletes can strive to perform all movements and take no longer than 35:00. With that being said, athletes that can complete this workout safely can be permitted to do so, even it they will take longer than 35:00. This should be done at the coach’s discretion.
