What a week! I haven’t been this stressed out since basic training hell week. The new job is overwhelming to say the least. It will get better, but I was thrown into a hurricane. I haven’t slept well and have not wanted to do anything but roll up in the fetal position and whimper.

It will get better and I will be glad that I went through this time to get a good foundation as quickly as possible. But in the stress of it all, my eating and workouts have suffered greatly. Here was tonight’s attempt at getting back on track.


Three rounds for time of:
24″ Box jump, 50 reps
185 pound Deadlift, 21 reps
30 Pull-ups

Scaled this way back to;

20″ Box Jump, 30 reps
185lb Deadlift, 14 reps
20 Pull-ups, Blue Band Assist

Time 22:28

Sucking wind and feeling the stress.

Missed a great deal on a treadmill that had been on craigslist for nearly a week. Called the gal who owned it and she said she had hardly had any calls, let alone lookers. So made an appointment for the next day to go over and look and before I went to bed, she emailed me and said someone stopped by and gave her full asking price and hauled it away.

Fight Gone Bad!

Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

Ok, we missed this workout last night due to a little bug that was going around. We all seem better today, so we’re going to make it up tonight.

We don’t have a row machine, so we have decided to substitute burpees, yes, burpees. I’m sadistic that way.

So it went pretty well I thought, until I looked at other peoples scores… sheesh… makes me feel like I didn’t do anything. But by half way through the 3rd round I was sweating profusely and had puddles at each station. So it was a hard met-con workout, even if we did score low.

This is my new favorite workout.

Total Points: 185

This is just belows Brad’s previous PR… Have a feeling he’s going to break 200… But NO PRESSURE BRAD!!
