Camelback - 8-23-15

“When you get right down to the root of the meaning of the word ‘succeed,’ you find that it simply means to follow through.” – F.W. Nichol

Well… It’s Monday and I’m off to a crazy start!

The climb up Camelback yesterday was fun. I think I could’ve broken my 28 minute barrier, but my partner was puking halfway up – I couldn’t just leave him. That’s ok, though, because I can tell that my consistent training is starting to pay off.

That’s really the secret to succeeding with your training regimen (or anything in life, really…). Once you make the decision to do something, all you really have to do is commit to it, then follow through.

I was editing photos late last night and woke up about 40 minutes late, so had to rush my WOD. BUT… I got it done AND got the kiddos to school, AND got the parent-teacher conference done, AND got my first appointment out of the way. I get busy, but I made a commitment to myself and I wasn’t going to let it go just because I had a busy morning.

I hope you’re doing the same.

With said… Let’s get to it! It’s a repeat of the WOD from two weeks ago – short, intense, and all good.

WOD 8-24-15

Warm up:

  • Light jog for 5-10 minutes
  • Begin a warm up stretch once you’re warm, then
  • up to 100 air squats, or as many as you can do in 5 minutes, whichever comes first.

Main set:

  • 20 pullups, then 20 pushups
  • 15 pullups, then 20 pushups
  • 12 pullups, then 20 pushups
  • 10 pullups, then 20 pushups
  • 10 pullups, then 20 pushups

You’ll need three sets of dumbbells, at least 10lbs apart. My last one was 15lbs.

  • up to 14 reps, alternating/side, then 20 pushups
  • lower the weight, up to 14 reps/side, then 20 pushups
  • then burn out on the lowest weight.

Finish off with 2 sets of hanging leg raises to failure. Hanging like that at the end actually helps to stretch out your entire back, work your core, and completely finish off your forearms and grip strength – it’s three in one!

That’s it! Short, sweet, and intense.

Cool down with another light jog for 5-10 minutes, followed by a good stretch out.

See you on Wednesday!

You got this…
