S. OBSTACLE TRAINING
So, I’m still sick. But I’m tired of being tired and fucking waiting around to feel better, so my guy packed up our gear and got to it today.
It was only the two of us and we busted our asses. I hacked my way through the workouts and even threw up a little, but we got it done.
In between the exercises, we ran .40 miles x 4 + 0.5 mile finish lap.
The drag bag was about 60+lbs since we added more rocks to it.
Farmer walks w/buckets of rock: obviously sucked but focused on not letting my arms lock out.
Tire Flipping: Corey had to help me with the lift off a bit, but 20 flips done.
Total time: 2:03:12
Max HR: 174 bpm
Avg HR: 138 bpm
We didn’t quit and thats what I love about us. He pushes me even when my lungs are burning and I feel like I have nothing left. He’s my rock and he’s amazing because others have excuses and he knows if you want to get from point A to point B, you can’t have excuses. You have to work, put in the time, blood, sweat and tears and get to it.
Flat DB Bench: 25# x 1 x 18, 30# x 1 x 15, 35# x 1 x 12

Overhead DB Ext: 30# x 3 x 12 (super slow and concentrated)
Dips: 25# x 2 x 15, 1 x 13
Ab Routine x 4 exercises x 2 sets
I added another cable exercise to my abs. Feels good!
Max HR: 154
Avg HR: 113
Thoughts: I had a lot of energy. Not sure where it came from (teehee, prework drink ftw!), I felt good though. Went a little heavier than normal on flat bench, but it needed to be done. My incline suffered however because we powered right through weight lifting. I think it only took both of us about 47 minutes to complete chest & triceps….haha I think my time was more around 1:05/1:10 but I walked to the car without shutting off my hr watch. oops!
Went food shopping last night, showered, made Corey and I our protein shakes, gave him a foot rub, and fell asleep early. I’m sucha great girlfriend.
WG PDs: 60# x 1 x 14, 75# x 1 x 12, 90# x 2 x 5, 60# x 1 x 13
Cable Curls: 40# x 1 x 12, 30# x 1 x 14, 40# x 1 x 10Not sure where the 159 came from? Hyperex. maybe?
Max HR: 159 bpm
Avg HR: 113 bpm
Thoughts: I haven’t trained back in about 2 weeks. Sucks, I felt strong but the numbers don’t lie people! Fatigued quicker than I’d like, but hey there’s next week 😉
W. RUN / ABS
Run: 1.65 mile run, until I couldn’t breathe.
Step Climber: 7 minutes
New Ab Routine x 3 sets x 4 exercises.
Max HR: 186 bpm
Avg HR: 147 bpm
Thoughts: Running felt really good. My legs felt strong, but my lungs did not. I had to hold in my coughs or else I’d spin into a coughing fit running 7.0 mph. :-\ So I had a to stop and jump on the stair master while Cor finished his 3 miles.
I wanted to do more cardio, but unless I’m outdoors I feel like people just hate me. Abs was kickass though. We upped the sets/reps and I added another exercise to it. Next week I’m adding planks into it =]
Max HR: 181 bpm
