I got schooled by a jump rope
After two days off, I should have been re-energized and ready to return to my usual workout regimen, but that definitely did not happen. To spare you the ramblings of my still-exhausted brain (seriously, what is going on?), I'm just going to tell you
what I did what happened to me this morning.
Warm Up: - 2x through
10 goblet squats
10 push ups
10 hanging twists
50m small hops
50m high knee skips
100 double-unders (This is where you try to skip the jump rope twice under you when you jump - I couldn't do the double-unders, so I had to do triple the number of regular jump ropes, except I only hit 200. This took me seven minutes and zapped me of my pride entirely.)
50 handstand push-ups (I did an amalgamation of "handstand" push-ups on my knees from a box/regular push-ups/kneeling push-ups on the box)
40 toes to bar (I had to lay on the floor and raise my feet to above my head, because pull ups were not happening)
30 shoulder to overhead (started with 44lb bar, finished with 30lb bar)
90 ft of front rack walking lunges (holding the 30lb bar, walking across the gym and back - I made it halfway with the bar and then did the rest without weight)
My Time: 29:10
They say a bad workout is better than no workout at all, but I just don't feel like I put my best out there this morning. When I got home, I collapsed on my floor and just laid there for a few minutes because all of my muscles were so tired.
Looking back at the past few workouts, I wish I had some fist-pumping results or powerhouse stories to share with you, but this is raw reality - even if I wish it were something different.
