Wednesday 30.4: Sled metcon

Wednesday. Metcon, 4rds of: 30m sled pull, 10 burpee, 30m sled pull, 20 front rack lunges (40kg).

Spending quality time in Klaukkala. Couldn't leave the sled alone because it's perfect tool for heavy breathing and burning legs. It's an easy day of celebration of May Day's eve. Eating, relaxing with close people and sports of course. All I need for life!

Metcon. Not timed
  • 4 rounds of:
  • 30m sled pull
  • 10 burpee
  • 30m sled pull
  • 20 front rack walking lunges (40kg)

The sled itself is around 20-25kg. I had about 35kg worth of tools inside as a load: kettlebells, dumbbells, and plates. Let's say it was around 60kg in total.

This was definitely a leg burner. All movements took energy out of my lower body. My breathing was heavy all the way. The combo of dragging the sled and then lifting the bar in front rack position was not tempting idea. But that was part of it so just do it.

Toughest part was exactly that. My legs were exhausted on the lunges. Burpees were the easiest part, kinda light. But the sled was definitely worth building it. I'm glad we were able to come up with something this good and solid construction work with Kari :)
