Here's how it went:
First, ran a 6 minute 45 second mile - new personal record!
Warm Up = 5 sets of the following
- 8 foot cuts on the bouldering wall (foot cut = get yourself on the overhanging bouldering wall, let your feet come off the holds, then with controlled movement put your feet back on the holds)
- 20 seconds calf raises
- 25 seconds tip toes
- 8 slasher-to-halo's with a 15 lb weight
- 3 minutes in the crack machine
- 45 seconds chair
- 45 seconds plank
- 8 burpees
All and all, I feel pretty beat up. The crack machine was set to slightly wider than hand size for me, so I had to cup pretty hard to stay in. By the end of it, I was only staying in for maybe 15 seconds at a time before falling out. But the thing is - I had a LOT of fun with this workout! It wasn't boring, it was insanely challenging but still achievable. I feel worked.
Also, funny note, I worked out in my sports bra since we had the bouldering room to ourselves- this gave me ridiculous motivation to keep good form b/c anytime I didn't have good form my abs would arch out and look extremely icky. But when I had good form, it was like, YES, I'm gonna get me some smoking hot abs.
It's the little things, right?
Here are some pictures of the crack machine, just for funsies. Kinda scary looking, eh?
