NerdStrong Gym - Hour Long Workout!!!
So it seems appropriate that I would celebrate with one of the craziest and toughest workouts I have done so far at NerdStrong. Today's workout is called Uberintro. It was done in heats because it starts with a row and we only have five rowers at the gym. So a few days ago coach Andrew sent out a message and asked for us to sign up for a time slot. I got the first seat for the first heat at 9:15. Joining me for my heat was Derek, Laurn, Joe and John.
Now here is what we had to do... we started with 1609 meter Row which is a mile row, then 20 rounds.. yes that's 20 rounds of 5x Pull Ups (Rings Rows), 10x Push Ups and 15x Squats.. we then finished with 8 Lap Run around the parking lot equaling 2000 meters which is 1.2 miles.
We had an hour to complete this workout and we could scale down when ever we saw fit. I'm happy to say that I didn't scale down at all.. well other then the pulls ups. But by the time I was done I Rowed 1 miles, I did 100 Rings Rows, 200 Push Ups, 300 Squats and Ran 1.2 Miles and I did all this in 1 hour and 4 minutes, just pass the time limit.
I'm extremely happy with my results. I can't believe I worked out for an hour straight with no breaks. I continue to amazing myself with these workouts. The coaches tell us all the time that we can do it and I think we are finally realizing that they are right... we can do it because WE ARE NERDSTRONG!!!
