11:00 AM - Self
Pull-up hangs, small swings, knee raises
Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
8 hanging knee-raises
10 dumbbell hang clean and jerks
Men use 35-lb. dumbbell
I did the scaled workout above, Rx would have called for T2B and a 50# DB.
I managed 6 Rounds + 18 Reps. I thought I paced it well. From the get go, I broke up the hanging knee raises into 2 sets of 4 reps. That is where I usually got swinging. The HC&J were the toughest part and I found myself wanting to rest and not wanting to get on the rower. I tried to use the 14 calorie row as a recovery spot, but each round took less than a minute and then it was back to the pull-up bar.
I did not register for the open this year, but found myself in a position to go to the gym and wanted to give it a shot. My capacity for work is certainly down a little. I have not done a long high intensity workout like that in a while. Overall, I am pretty excited and may follow the 18.2 workout more closely.
