I woke up this morning with not much of a voice and a sore throat...luckily I didn't "feel bad"...so I took a shower and got ready to head up to the gym to workout. At least twice a month, we have "free Saturday workouts" at the gym. Usually there are more people than at "regular" classes so most of the time...we do "team" workouts...today was no exception. J had me take everyone through the "Burgener Warm Up" that we learned at the Olympic Lifting certification then we split up into 2 groups and got started.
We had a certain distance that our team had to go on the Rower and 200 reps of 3 other exercises to complete. It didn't matter how we completed it or split it up, but we all had to be doing a different exercise and then rotate. We had very different "strategies" and in the end...J's team beat my team by about a minute. It was not an extremely high number of reps, but it was intense because there was no rest. We just kept moving from one thing to the next to the next...racing...working towards finishing.
It was a perfect example of "intensity". Even though we split up the load...it was very taxing because of the constant pace we kept without rest. None of us wanted to let our team down so we all pushed as hard as we could. Today was really fun.
I love teamwork!
COMPLETE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING AS A TEAM...ALL TEAM MEMBERS ARE WORKING AT THE SAME TIME, BUT CANNOT DO THE SAME EXERCISES AT THE SAME TIME...EACH HAS TO BE AT A DIFFERENT "STATION". THE WORK CAN BE DIVIDED ANY WAY THE TEAM WISHES.
200 RING PUSHUPS
200 D-BALL SLAMS
200 BOX JUMPS (20 IN)
