Thursday-Friday

Wednesday I ended up not going to karate. I was tired. It’s hard to go on Wednesday nights because I get up at 5:00 AM that day. If I get a nap, it’s easier, but yesterday I didn’t take a nap.

Yesterday – Thursday – I did one of the workouts Kyle programmed: 8 x 3 explosive back squats at 95 lbs. Five-minute AMRAP of 1 wall walk with 5-sec hold; 3 toes to bar with straight legs; 5 dips. I got 4+ rounds. I’m not as strong at dips as I think I used to be. We rested five minutes then did another 5-minute AMRAP of 30 doubleunders and 10 kettlebell swings (16 kg). I got five rounds. This set of workouts wasn’t very hard, although of course if I’d been stronger at dips, I could have done more, and it would have been harder. Then last night I went to karate.

Today, Friday: Another Kyle design: 8 x 3 explosive bench press at 55 lbs (easy). Ten-minute AMRAP of 3-6-9-12-15-etc squat-jumps and dumbbell clean and jerk (25 lbs). I got through 15 of each, 18 squat jumps, and two clean and jerks. Hard.

I’ve worked out Monday through Friday this week. I definitely don’t do this every week though I’m always active.
