Despite going to sleep pretty late last night and being utterly exhausted, I dragged my sorry ass to conditioning class this morning b/c I told Hugh I would be there after testing. Turns out that I am still pretty damn tired, but I am really happy that I went.
We haven’t done a “fight gone bad” in a while. FGB is meant to mimic how an MMA fighter would feel during a fight. The format is 5 exercises done for 1 minute each with a minute of rest at the end, all repeated 3 or 5 times. Today, we did 3. The idea is that after about 1 minute of an exercise, you should be at just about muscle failure, so you stop, change gears, and do something else.
Anyway, today’s workout was 3 cycles of the following:
- Step ups (20lb dumbbells)
- Push press (55lbs)
- Medicine Ball Sit Ups (12lb medicine ball)
- Medicine Ball Cleans (25lb medicine ball)
- Kettle bell sumo dead lift high pulls (1 pood, I think)
I was able to get out a total of 295 reps. This is WAY harder than it sounds… Here’s the breakdown of my reps:
|Exercise||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Total|
|Med Ball Sit Ups||21||18||16||55|
|Med Ball Cleans||16||12||12||40|
