I am talking about the treacherous workout that was waiting for Joe and I when we went to the gym this morning.
More on that in a minute.
First I spent an easy 35 minutes on the treadmill. I decided on something that wouldn’t exhaust me but still got my heart rate up and got the sweat flowing. I settled on my trusty run 4/sprint 1 treadmill workout. It went a little something like this:
As I mentioned yesterday I got to see what workout was waiting for us and I tell you what, I was scurred….not scared, scurred. (It’s much worse, believe me.)
You may want to sit down.
Ok, here it comes:
So essentially what this is saying is that you do 9 of each exercise, then 12, then 15, then 21, then 15, 12, 9….you get the idea.
Joe and I completed this workout in 56:20!!! Yeah, it took us almost an hour to get through it all — we must have really been moving slow.
We used a 30 pound barbell for the Curl & Press.
This workout wouldn’t have been so bad if it wasn’t for all the freaking pull ups. To my credit, every time that pullups rolled around I made sure to do at least 2 of them unassisted — the rest of them were done using a box to give me a boost.
With all the pullups (93 of them to be exact) my hands got pretty chewed up. Here is how they looked when we were done:
Either way, it was brutal and I am already sore.
Well, that is all I’ve got for today.
It is way past my bedtime so goodnight.
