Shoulder presses and a AMRAP

Yesterday's WOD consisted of 5 sets of 3 reps of shoulder presses. Used dumbbells instead of a barbell. I find I like dumbbells better for some reason. Results were 50lb x 1 and 60lb x 4.

Tonight's WOD was extremely hard on me. It was an AMRAP of deadlifts (70% max weight, which was 225lbs) 5 reps, 10 burpees, 15 squats in 15 minutes. I can't believe I am going to put this into words, but as I was dying on the deadlifts I was looking forward to the burpees. I was amazed during the workout that this was going through my head.
Finished 3 sets in the first 5 minutes and was only able to get through 3 more in the next 10. Got a lot of sideways glances in the gym, but was happy to be done in 15 minutes. Took most of the walk home to come back to myself.

8 miles tomorrow night in the heat! At least I'll be ready for all kinds of weather.

  1. looking forward to burpees is never a good thing.
