Why does an extra hour of sleep feel like one fewer?

on November 5, 2012

Bah, Daylight Savings Time. Always messes me up, no matter which way we go.

Repeat of shoulder volume day:

A. Warmup circuit, 3 rounds:
A1. 15 airsquats
A2. 10 pushups
A3. max stroke length on the rowing machine (2:04)

On the rowing machine, you’re supposed to row until the “time/500m” on the readout stops going down. My first set, it just wouldn’t quit! Every pull was something lower. The trainer even came over to make sure I was doing it right.

B. 4-6 rep max:
Bench Press: 60lbs x 6, 65lbs x 5, 60lbs x 6

Boom! Milestone — 50% BW x 5. (I actually lifted this amount last time, but only got 4 reps.)

C. Superset, 3 rounds for max reps (or 15):
C1. Incline bench press: 20lbs x 10, 20lbs x 7, 15lbs x 16
C2. Inverted row: 10, 10, 10

D. 3 rounds, AMRAP in 30s:
D1. lateral raise: 5lb dbs: 16, 15, 15
D2. tricep pulldown (using the pullup assistance bands): 20, 16, 18

E. Circuit: 21-15-9 for time: 5:25 (:50 faster than last time)
E1. burpee
E2. db swing (20lbs)

Women’s Grappling Camp is this weekend!!!!!!
