- Kettlebell Snatches (5-5-5-5-5 per side)
As usual for the first week in a cycle, I kept it relatively light, but I managed to work my way up to 24 kilograms. Already
3 rounds for time of:
- 20 lateral tuck-jumps over a parallette
- 15 handstand push-ups
- 400-meter run
Having just finished a cycle of HSPUs, the handstand push-ups flew by pretty quickly -- especially now that I've discovered the one-legged kip. For the past couple of years, I've been doing strict handstand push-ups, and finding that once I ran out of gas, I was done. With the extra little oomph provided by a single-legged kip, though, I felt like I could keep cranking out HSPUs for a good, long while. I was thisclose to finishing all the handstand push-ups unbroken, but right before my forty-fifth (and final) rep, I fell away from the wall. D'oh!
Let's not talk about the running. Suffice it to say, I remain sluglike on the running path.
Result: 9:12 as RXed.
