NerdStrong Gym - Calling All Ants!!!
Speaking of the main workout today's was a station workout in groups.. first of all I love station workouts and I love group workouts so this was win win for me. When we saw that we are being grouped into teams of 3 Lauren, Derek and I looked at each other with a nod that we were going to be a team but the coaches squashed that idea by making us count off. I was number 3 and joined fellow number 3's, coach Seely and Mike.
Since we were group 3 we started with station 3 so that meant 10x Kettlebell Swings. I as glad to get these over as I still worry about pulling my back (as I had done in the past). Next was the Ring Rows and this is one of my favorite exercise so I didn't have a problem with this, though I did get a little sloppy towards the end which coach Christy quickly corrected. Next was Box Jumps and I had done something to my upper right leg during that "cone run" so doing these box jumps I wasn't as light on my feet as I usual am but I manged to get through them with very little discomfort. We then moved to Sit Ups. I am now back pad and steel weight for the feet free, which is a big deal but I do them very slowly, not my favorite thing to do. We then did Push Ups and this is where I shined. I love doing push up and have the form down pretty good. Next was the rowing which wasn't that bad though burning 10 calories can take a bit of time. And our final station was Kettlebell Deadlifts which were okay. I was spent by the end but still managed to get a few rounds of these in before time was up.
Overall I was happy with my performance, it's always intimidating workout with one of the coaches as your teammate. But overall I think my team did pretty well. Another fun "themed" workout.
