NerdStrong Gym - Defeating Ultron
So when I got to the gym I was a bit leery. The 9am people looked exhausted and I knew that was going to be me in an hour. Coach Andrew actually was doing the workout with the 10am class so Coach David was running the 10am class. He's always great at describing what's happening when it comes to themed workouts.
The idea behind this workout is AMAZING. I love that we first fight Ultron Prime and defeat him, we then fight version 1 which is new and improved. If we defeat that version then comes version 2 even bigger and badder... well we continue this pattern until we reach version 14 when we finally defeat the big bad Ultron... but will any of us survive until version 14?
There was a time limit on this workout... 30 minutes.
This was an extremely tough but great workout. I think I even forgot to take my :30 second mandatory rest time because I just wanted to defeat the next version. As I said in previous posts it's intimidating when you look at a workout like this but when it's over you have this amazing feeling of accomplishment.
Over the course of this 30 minute workout I did, 205 High Knees, 135 Squats, 80 Lunges, 75 Push Ups, 55 CP Sit Ups, 130 seconds of Planking, 75 Bicycles, Ran 350 Meters, 25 Band Rows and 5 Pull Ups... that's just crazy cool.
Thanks to Coach David for another amazing coaching job and to Coach Andrew for coming up with this crazy ass workout.
