Saturday workout took place rather early in the morning as we had planned a day in the downtown Helsinki for a full day. Body felt more stiff than normally but, especially in the beginning. Little by little it got more fresh.
- Every minute on the minute x 10 minutes
- 3 hang squat cleans @ 80kg
I kept the weights moderate as I was on a rather tight schedule. First couple of minutes felt tight on the hips but then they got looser and looser. Felt okay on these cleans.
Metcon. Result, 8 rounds + 180m row
- 12min amrap of:
- 250m row
- 6 handstand push-ups
This was a lot of fun. It would be tempting to do this for a longer period of time. For this time domain I was able to maintain the round times consistent and transitions short. Hspu's were close to 50 reps. What would happen after 75 reps. There might be some sort of threshold but doing only 6 hspu's per set is tolerable, and could be for a good time.
My goal on the rower was not to take it as a recovery at all but to keep a good pace all the way. It's just something like 20 pulls to reach 250 meters so I kept pulling with a purpose, walked to the wall and took those 6 hspu's unbroken. This was a good efficient session, and I left the gym with a smile on my face
