NerdStrong Gym - Konami Code

To honor the death of the President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, we did a Konami Code workout, Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A today at NerdStrong Gym.

For a warm up we did a "partner ladder" consisting of Push Ups, Sit Ups and Squats. I partnered up with new daddy John. The way this worked was I did one push up and then John did one push up, then I'd do 2 push ups and he'd do two and so on. Luckily because of time we only had to go up the ladder 1, 2, 3, 4, 5  and then we moved on to the next exercise and did it all over again and again. It was a really good warm up. In the end we did 15x Push Ups, 15x Sit Ups and 15x Squats.

Now for the actual workout... this was also a partnered workout so John and I continued our teamup. We had a choice between easy, normal or hard workouts. We opted for the normal workout which had 1x (Up) Barbell Thruster, 1x (Up) Barbell Thruster, (Down) 5x Push Ups, (Down) 5x Push Ups, (Left, Right) 2x Barbell Hop, (Left, Right) 2x Barbell Hop, (B) 2x Burpee and (A) 8x Partner Leg Lever.

This was an AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible). Each partner had to go through the entire routine before the next person started. John and I went at it and encouraged each other every step of the way. We were hoping to get at least four rounds done each but we surprised ourselves and actually got six done..  so in total we did 12 Barbell Thrusters, 60 Push Ups, 24 Barbell Hops, 12 Burpees and 48 Partner Leg Levers each. Between this and the warm up it was a really good out. Thanks coach Andrew
