Yesterday morning I started my day with:
5 Rounds for time of:
21 Sumo Dead Lift High Pulls @ 95lbs
21 Ring dips
I finished in 11:15. At first look, this may seem like a lot of upper body (“I worked the yoo-beelus to the upper dorsimus…it’s boring but it’s my life…”). If you’re doing the SDLHP’s properly, it’s a lower body movement…agressively driving the hips forward to float the bar up your body. Your arms are there to guide it up. My intensity level was pretty low, I’ll admit. I was a still little burned from the Endurance Cert workout over the weekend.
I finished up the day with an hour of TaeKwonDo. Although I was a little tired, my strength and speed in my kicks were phenomenal. One movement we did were some quick front leg side kicks, as quick as you can raise your leg and bring it back down. I was very impressed with how easily my leg came up and out and how controlled my breathing was.
Dinner was 8oz of steak and lots of asparagus, zuchini, and chopped bell peppers cooked with a little olive oil and garlic salt. And the steak was good. 5 min on each side on the broiler in the oven (no charcoal), came out perfectly. Wow, what am I Martha Stewart? How bout this, when Martha starts dead lifting 375, then you can call me “Martha.”
