Re: Brock gets Rocked

We did an interesting "musical chairs" type workout last night. The gym was haphazardly scattered with various torture implements including kettlebells, plyo boxes, rowers, climbing ropes, bikes, med balls, d-balls, push-press, etc. Every round started with a group 400-meter run (everyone tethered together by holding onto a length of webbing). Once the group got to the door, everyone would race to a station and start working for 1 minute for max reps/calories. There weren't quite enough stations for *everybody*, so if you didn't find a station quickly, you'd have to wait out the round.

I ended up doing:
  • 24kg kettlebell swings - 29 reps
  • 20lb medicine ball cleans - 27 reps
  • Row - 21 calories (ouch)
  • 42" box jumps - 16 jumps (ouch)
  • 75lb push-press - 32 reps
  • ab-mat situps - 30 reps (abs in pain from L-pullups the night before)

After that, we messed around for a bit with the sleds. My calves were already on the verge of cramping from the box-jumps/push-press, but I got conned into trying a 200-meter sled push. The sled was loaded with 40kg of weight and I took off. At almost exactly the halfway mark, my right calf suddenly cramped. This is significant only because I've never - in all my life - had a muscle cramp. Holy crap do those hurt. I rolled around on the grass for several minutes drooling and muttering in pain before it finally started to unlock. Needless to say, I didn't finish the sled push.

I'll be going in tonight, but I'm going to try and avoid anything that even remotely affects my calf because it's super-sore today.
