Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Monday morning – both feeling quite good

Plan – the parts of the body you don’t see in the mirror.

Warm up
4min on the ABB to get the blood flowing
General warm up to get ready for the first part of today

20min I would say.

15min AMRAP
4 Kettlebell - Double box step-overs 12/20kgs (26/44lb KB’s) (Boxes 16+20”, 20+24”)
8 Dumbbell – box step-ups 12/22kgs (26/50lb DB) (20/24”)

So what is meant by double box step overs?.... place 2 boxes in row with a distance of 5ft/1.5m between them.

Your first box will be the lower box and the second box will be higher. Turn around and go back the same way you came but this time you have the high box first and then the lower. With the boxes being close so have to adjust and plan your steps between the boxes.

Wife – completed 9 rounds + 8 reps
Myself – completed 8 rounds

Wife was on a role and blew me out of the park. She did mention halfway through that should could have gone heavier but as I told her afterwards this was the first time we did double boxes and we did not know how this would go but I can this much it was tough.

10 x 3 reps – 1 arm Kettlebell overhead squat

This had nothing to do with the weight, it was all about mobility and getting those accessory muscles working. We were both quite good with our right arm but the left side was tough. This was a difficult movement but we learn fast.

10 x 3 reps – keep or increase weight after every round, take it as far as you like.

55, 55, 65, 65, 65, 67, 67, 69, 71, 75kgs/165lbs

100, 100, 110, 110, 110, 115, 115, 120, 125, 135kgs/297lbs

The first 2 rounds felt really heavy, after that things got better.
Better than today, stronger than tomorrow.
