So my gym membership went under for about a week (I'll spare you the details about expiring accounts, renewals and such), however I will say that I'm very glad to have my membership back. I hated not having access to the gym...especially when it's only five minutes away on my lunch break. It's feels good to back.
I got my membership reactivated on Thursday, so it's been a short week in terms of work outs. Here's what the last three days looked like:
Thursday: CrossFit Day
The WOD called for the following:
7 rounds for time of:
15 kettle bells swings (55 lbs)
15 power cleans (95lbs)
15 box jumps
I wasn't feeling very good that day, so I ended up scaling the workout back to the following:
5 rounds for time of:
10 kettle bell swings (55lbs)
10 power cleans (95lbs)
10 box jumps (24 inches)
I kind of felt like a wuss for scaling it back, however, the workout still kicked my trash and made me sweat like mad. It felt great.
5 sets of squats (10 reps) super-setted with 10 box jumps (24 inches). I ended up doing 3 sets of 225, 1 set of 185, 1 set of 135.
After that I did sets of "side to side" jumps over a 8 inch tall, 18 inch wide box.
It was a short workout, however I worked up a pretty good sweat. It reminded me of the type of short quick workouts I used to do in high school for volleyball.
Saturday: Random + Cardio
4 sets of lat pull downs (wide grip) super-setted with reverse, close-grip pull downs ( 130lbs and 110lbs respectively)
3 sets of 1-armed, standing cable rows. 10 reps. (70 lbs).
3 sets of cable fly-presses, super-setted with push-ups. 10 reps of each.
35 minutes on the elliptical machine.
Tomorrow's a rest day: I never work out on Sundays...it's my day for church and family. Looking forward to beginning another week on Monday!
