That looks incredibly hard. What weight are we talking for the thrusters and swings? Do you know how big your tire is? Lastly, I assume the ball is the 20lbs. weight?

Well,…..OK here goes. Here are 2 WODs that I made up and keep a computer log on thanks to Anthony B.’s influence. These are based on body building (which I still love to do). Every morning for the past few weeks I do these for 15 minutes before my shower. As I had said on some other posts, I still love body building but now I do them with a CF style approach which gives me a much higher burn and more stamina building. I also named them after females in the tradition of CF. It actually does help to name my various routines because it helps me to keep better track of what I do, so don’t laugh. I still do the other CF stuff but in the evenings and weekends when I can hit the gym.

4/21/06 (Fri)

PHYLLIS: 25lb & 30lb DBs
Pushups: x 10
Side DB Flies: x 10 (25lbs)
Front DB Raises: x 10reps/arm (25lbs)
Overhead DB Presses: x 10 (30lbs)
Time: rounds for 15 min

Comments: I went through my routine but did not really feel any effect, even when moving up to 30lb DBs for the OHs it did not feel heavy at all even though it was 5lb heavier from my last routine. I will have to increase all of my reps throughout the whole routine up to 20 for the next time and really push myself through it to get a better burn output. I am glad actually because this represents another growth factor in performance.

4/24/06 (Mon)

CANDIE: 25lb DBs
Pushups: x 30, 20, 15, 10 (close hand position)
Standing alternating curls: x 15, 10, 5 reps/arm
Standing OH Triceps Presses: x 12, 15, 10 reps
Time: rounds for 15 min

Comments: Overall I felt great. I had a good sweat and I really had to push myself through it. I was getting exhausted after the first round and the exhaustion increased with each round after. I can’t wait to do those again. I felt a really good envelope pushing performance.

If you want to do more upper body work, why not just do muscleups, handstand pushups, weighted pullups, and weighted ring dips? I doubt that if you worked up to 15 muscleups in a row and 25 handstand pushups your upper body would be suffering from a lack of curls and front raises.
