Holiday Rewind

Christmas was a double workout. So much for a gift from Max. I moved workout 2 to the next day as I didn't want to feel rushed.

The workout was 50/50 40/40 30/30 20/20 10/10 pushups/lunges (I did half the required amount of lunges with each leg). Was running late for Christmas at my in-laws so cranked it out in 9:46. Then I went on to have a great meal followed by 7-8 of the best Christmas cookies I've ever had that Nancy makes every year. Felt guilty, but only for a second. I am glad she only makes them once a year as I have absolutely no self control around them.

On the 26th the wod was 5 sets of 3 reps of back squats. The results are as follows; 135, 155, 185x3. Considering 185 was my max 2 weeks earlier I was really pleased. Form was good as Nancy checked how deep they were. Went to the apartment gym for the 25k bike on the stationary bike. Finished in 45:58.

Sunday was an off day and today I had 2 pullups, 4 deadlifts @ bodyweight, 6 burpees, 8 situps AMRAP in 20 minutes. Finished 12 sets and got thru the deadlifts in the 13th set. I repeated the workout from the other day when I used 60lb. dumbbells to get a comparison. Moving the 4x 5k bike time trials to tomorrow. Not sure if this smart, but I'll let you know.

  1. Hi Dan. Max sent me a link to your blog - looks like we are on a similar schedule. You're a little braver in your blog than I am in mine - I don't very often admit to drinking beer - let alone four in one night. I only had one workout to do on Christmas - guess Max likes me better! Can you send me your email address - there are some questions that I would like to ask you, but not in an open forurm.
