I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day yesterday. Since I switched up the workouts, yesterday was Deadlift 1/2 bodyweight 30x followed by a 1000m row. Used 45lb. dumbbells as a substitute for the 90lb. barbell. Finished this workout in 5:03. Lungs were on fire, heard my breathing over my Ipod. Jumped on the stationary bike for a 20K Time Trial. Lungs were burning for the first 8-10 minutes then calmed down a bit. Finished this workout in 38:31. I noticed something funny on the bike, it said "Stop exercising if you feel shortness of breath, pain or light headed" I could only think to myself "We'd never get anything done if we followed this advice".
Okay, so this morning I met up with Fran (substituted 50lb. dumbbell thrusters for 95lb. barbell thrusters). A little background, Fran consists of 21 reps thrusters followed by 21 pull ups (did these today unassisted), 15 thrusters, 15 pullups, 9 thrusters, 9 pullups for time.
10/7/09 Used one 60lb. dumbbell for all thrusters, 5 unassisted pullups, then 55lbs. of assistance.
2/24/10 50lb. dumbbells in each hand all unassisted pullups. Finished in 9:43
4/13/2010 Same weight used as above, diet completely out of whack, finished in 12:32.
5/10/10 Same weight used, diet's been really good lately. Finished in 7:21.
I amazed at how well the Paleo Diet is working. It probably has been 3-4 weeks since I made the correction and I feel like it is really starting to kick in.
