Friday's Workout

A fast one today.

Strength Skill:
  • Push-Presses (5-5-5-3-3)
We kept it light this morning (I started at 95 pounds and finished at 125), and focused on technique -- changing directions and exploding up with speed, and keeping our bodyweight back and on our heels.


3 rounds for time:
  • 21 kettlebell sumo deadlift high pulls (24kg / 16kg)
  • 15 kettlebell swings (24kg / 16kg)
  • 9 handstand push-ups
The kettlebell movements flew by, and my first round of handstand push-ups felt fine, but by the middle of the second round of HSPUs, I ran out of gas. It was a struggle to string more than three handstand push-ups together at a time, and my final HSPU rep took almost half a minute to complete.

I'll do better next time.

Result: 7:56 as RXed.
