Another tough workout. We had a 40 minute cap to do the above.
I did the kettle bell swings with 8kg. I think I can do heavier, but I don´t trust my technique yet and don´t want to get back troubles or anything. So rather keep the weights a bit low until I get used to these exercises. Besides, I have enough trouble getting through an exercise like this without the weight hehe. The sumo dead lift I did with 16kg.
I wasn´t able to finish the complete three rounds..
This is how far I got.
So, that´s two rounds of each exercise and then 21 more box jumps, 20 kettle bell swings and 5 burpees.
I had the most trouble getting the pull ups done (I didn´t do them till the chest btw, just the normal chin over bar). My arms would be so tired at this point that I struggled getting up. Even though I used the black band.
Box jumps weren´t easy either. I had two times when I made the mistake of not jumping both feet at the same time and almost falling face down, because I didn´t lift my feet high enough. I guess that´s what you get for trying to cheat haha. It always surprised me when I do the box jumps though, because before the first jump it really seems impossible to me to even get one done. I don´t know the height I did them on. The box has 3 ways you can put it and I did it on the lowest possible. Which is probably not 20 inch, but a little lower.. maybe 18 inch (45cm)..
The burpees give me the most trouble breathing-wise and feeling faint. I think it´s because of the going down on the ground and all the way back up in so many repetitions. Not good for the heart :p.
I think I would have managed to finish it though, if there wasn´t a time cap. I just need too much time to catch my breathe sometimes. But hopefully in some time those breaks will get shorter and shorter :).
I tried to take a picture of my “workplace” afterwards, but I was shaking so badly I wasn´t able to get it sharp lol.
