Double Unders and Deadlifts

Today I decided that my warm up would be practicing double unders. My goal – just 20. I started off with a minute of singles before adding a double under inbetween singles. I did ten in a row, much to my surprise. Then I did five straight. I was so surprised I stopped. I then did five more. I hit my goal within two minutes. I then did another minute, adding a couple DUs in between.

I did some light KB snatches before getting to the strength portion of the work out. My goal was 5×285.


I wasn’t able to do the 285 in a complete set, but I didn’t rest as much as I did between the others. But I did some satisfactory “deloading” which should prime me for the next time. I then walked 100 meters with a 45 lb plate in each arm.

I finished with a slow 500m row (about 2:50) working on perfect form: 60 degrees angle forward and 120 degrees backward. On the treadmill I did 8-30 second modest sprints within 10 minutes, before walking 3 minutes with a 7 kg medicine ball.

My meals weren’t heavy, but I did eat a lot.

AM – 1 chicken sausage with eggs and a cup of frozen spinach.
Lunch – Arugula salad with 1/2 cup of tuna salad and 1 fillet of Tilapia in a lemon tomato sauce of some sort.

2 pears
1 Cashew Cookie Larabar
4 slices of Sopressata

Carrots l’anglaise
Spinach salad with avocado, bacon, chicken, a wee amount of cheddar, and almonds.

Not bad. Kind of enjoyable, really.
