Normally I would stay inside. I’m not a big fan of training outside during the winter, but yesterday I made an exception since it wasn’t that cold outside. There is a school playground directly across from where I live, when I train outside, I make good use of it :).
After the warm-up, 200 or so single unders (still working on my double unders, slow progress on it..) a 30 meter bearcrawl and a few 100% sprints, I started my workout.
The workout that I did was the following:
15 BJ (box jumps)
15 Toes to Bar
15 Toes to Bar
15 Pull Ups
Unfortunately, I didn’t time it. Its a fun workout though. The Toes to Bar and Box Jumps weaken your arms enough to make the Pull Ups a real pain. I must say, I really liked training outside. I like being outside and It’s fun to see people watch your “weird” workout. Most definitely will keep it up!
Since my partner in life is blogging as well (working on becoming a nutritionist, handling my diet and supporting me to achieve my goals), a post has appeared on her blog My Paleo Kitchen about a handy addition to our Home gym.
It’s an awesome tool to get those pullups done faster and more comfortable!
Go read the post!
I came across this workout when I checked crossfit.com. It was posted as the WOD (Workout Of the Day) a couple of days back.
Since i truely love the bodyweight exercises I tried this one out, liked it, and decided that ill do it on regular bases!
If u can’t handle the HSPU’s yet, try getting your legs as high up as possible, it has about the same effect, though not the same intensity.
10 min Handstand Pushups: 37
5 min Squats: 150
2 min Pull Ups: 22
1 min Push Ups: 35
Reps: 244 total
Retry will be next week.
