This morning was the dreaded (not as bad as it has been in the past though..) Saturday workout. The reason I tend to dread this weekly workout is because it tends to keep to its promise of a grueling, intimidating list of numbers on the board (400 situps, 300 pushups, etc…split within a team). This week the entire gym was to be split up in 4 teams (6 people on each team). The workout looked like this:
knees to elbows
overhead lunges with a 25# plate
What the heck does that even mean? I was wondering the same thing…
How it works is that while one of your teammates is rowing (there are 6 stations and 6 teammates on each team), the others are doing as MANY reps as they can on their station (so for instance, as many wall balls as you can accomplish while your teammate is rowing 500m). Once the teammate has reached 500m, he/she yells “TEAM, SWITCH!” and you move on to the next station. We only needed to go through each station once. The way you win? You keep a continuous running tally of the amount of reps you do (rowing not included) at the 5 stations.
So now it’s time for Danny to pick the teams…he did it count off style. I was in team 3…which just HAPPENED to be allllll ladies!
Team Estro to the rescue!
I did 163 reps myself, one of my teammates did 205!! Our total…the highest in the gym….but since we were the last to finish, we had a 115 point reduction for a time penalty…
Final result? Second place (mind you, WITH the time penalty).
Next time you find yourself saying, “You throw like a girl…”, think about what that really means, will ya boys?.. 😉
