Saturday 22.8: Rope, Sled

Saturday.  Metcon, 15min amrap of: 2 rope climb, sled pull.

It turned out to be a rather surprise workout. My plan was to hit front squats but we went to Klaukkala so that meant an outdoor workout at its best

  • 15min amrap of:
  • 2 rope climb
  • Sled pull

The distance of the sled pull was about 40 meters one way so it totalled 80 meters. First piece was a decline and coming back was an incline. That means to say the latger piece of the sled pull was much tougher. Plus of course legs got more tired on the comeback. Don't know how much the sled weighed. We put all the plates Kari has. I guess that's pretty much 40+ kilos. And the sled is 20-30kg itself.

First round

It's been time since I had my hands on the rope. This is one of the rare places where I have found a good spot to place the rope hang. There's a perfect tree branch at a good height, something like 5 meters. This climbing thing felt much better than I had hopes for. That means I didn't have to recover that much begween the climbs. Felt like I had a good rhythm going on there. Sled was a lot worse on the body. It totally murdered my legs. Especially on the incline. Got a very good workout out of this!
