May 16 Workout

Context:  After feeling beat up after 3 aid pitches, I decided to add in some Metabolic Circuits to my plan (for 4 weeks, then re-evaluate).  This is non-aerobic, high intensity cardio.  I am targeting my weak ass and legs, to help me up the big wall (load carrying, hauling, and jugging).  I avoided any exercises that would work my main climbing muscles.  That way, I’m able to do these on my rest days from serious climbing training (spread the fatigue).

These are also great workouts for fat loss and general conditioning.

I should’ve warmed up, but I didn’t (besides some vacuuming).  I went straight into this:

2 Rounds of
30 sec Lateral Ski Jump
15 sec Rest
30 sec Explosive Step Up
60 sec Rest
30 sec Mountain Climber
15 sec Rest
30 sec Burpee
60 sec Rest

2 Rounds of
30 sec Walking Lunges
15 sec Rest
30 sec Alternating Lunge Jumps
90 sec Rest
30 sec Pushups
15 sec Rest
30 sec KB Swing
90 sec Rest

Less Gooey Protein Shake than yesterday.
