I like to have cool names for things. I can’t put my finger on it, but something is about to break wide open for me. I don’t know what to call it or at least I don’t know what to put in the title box or on the image. I know I want to share my daily training and workouts with you because it’s fun for me and sometimes can be a big motivator for me. However, there’s a lot of other stuff I want to continue sharing with you as well. Things that I know, experiences that I’ve had and continue to have that I think are important to share with the world. Today you just get a vague and sloppy introduction…
Back Squat/Front Squat Ping Pong (10 Minute EMOM)
- Front Squat x 3
- Back Squat x 3
Ok, so I did this last week, but this week I decided to push it a little bit. Last week I used 65 lbs. across the whole 10 minutes. This week I started at 95 lbs. and added weight each time ending with 135 lbs. on the last set. I was stoked! It felt great.
20 Minute AMRAP
- 200 Meter Row
- 10 Sit Ups
- 10 Plate Taps (25 lb plate)
- 10 Box Jumps (20 inches)
- 20 Lunges (10 Per Leg)
I added the plate taps in because I wanted to see how they felt on my shoulders. Felt really good, no pain. The only pain I felt this morning was trying to hang from a pull up bar. If I try to hang from the bar I get pretty sharp pains in my right shoulder. Doing pull ups and push ups with no pain at all will be a milestone for sure!
Re: the front/back squat pingpong, did you do 3 front squats one minute followed by 3 back squats the next minute, etc. or, was it a total of 6 squats at the top of each minute?
You got it! Back and forth (ping pong) so do 3 FS one minute and 3 BS the next minute. I love that rep scheme. 🙂
What are plate taps?
Keep it up man!!!
So I take a plate and hold it with both hands. Tap it on the ground and then lift it over my head. Then repeat tapping it on the ground each rep. Make sense?
Yup!!! Got it!
