Sunday 12302012 - LAST WOD of 2012

Here it is...the last workout of 2012.  It was pretty hefty if I do say so myself.

Let's see what I did to make up for the Brazilian Buffet I had the night before...of course it was all Paleo so its all good right?  No carbs...hahaha...

4 rounds of:
250m row
3 pull ups
10 x lunges
10 x GHD back extensions
5 x each arm KB snatch @ 35lbs

Box Squat Ladder x 2
add 10lbs until failure to complete reps

Begin - 115
End - 225  YAY!!  NEW PR!!!  What a great way to end the year!!

Overhead Squat 3 x 3 @ 80% effort
WU - 65lbs and 95lbs
Working set of 115lbs

Power Snatch 1 x 6 @ 60% of 1RM  EMOM (every minute on the minute)

100 x GHD Sit ups for time
*I probably did 75% good ones...this was killer. My abs are not my strongest anyone can attest. But I grinded it out...finished in 10:40.

Monday WOD - 12182012

OK, time to test my memory. I am at work now and trying to post this WOD from yesterday at Asylum Gym LA in Old Town Pasadena. Let's see how my memory is shall we?

RUN - the "Dayton" path  *I also ran most of this..thanks to my big mouth talking to Chris throughout the run I actually ran it!

Stretch and warm up with some mobility work.

6 count squat with 2 count hold at the bottom x 3

Ring Dip Hold
10 x each arm Ground to Overhead x 2 (35lbs)
Hollow Body Hold
3 rounds of the above

1 burpee + 10 x plate swing
1 burpee + 10 x squat jump holding the plate
3 rounds

*penalty burpees = 15
- this was for getting lapped by Brandon doing the above workout. He did 2 rounds and I had to do my last 3rd one.

Good workout for sure to start a crazy week...and not bad, like other elephants I have a good memory! YAY!

Weekend Catch Up

For those that may have noticed or care...I have been MIA a bit on my blog.  The reason is simply way busy.  Work has cranked up because everyone wants to get everything done before the holidays.  It was and is super busy.  Then I recently moved out of the condo I share with my sister.  It has been a long 8 years and  it was time to live apart as the condo was getting crowded for both of us.  Long story short, I left to a 1b 1ba apartment down the street.  So all is well in the world.  This also means no internet at least not yet. I plan on calling the first of the year and getting hooked up.  Until then I have to either blog from work or at my sister's place which is where I am now..  OK now you have the backstory...let's get to the weekend was a GREAT way to get back into it.
