Today's Weigh-In: 209.0 lbs.
5-day Average: 211.0 lbs.
Finally saw a number that wasn't 212 on the scale today, and I earned it. I ate great yesterday, and got in an insane workout. Let me share it with you, and you can give it a try:
The Filthy Fifty
50 Box Jumps/step ups on 24" box
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood (36 pounds)
Walking Lunge, 50 steps
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 45 pounds
50 Back extensions
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
50 Burpees (with 8" vertical jump from squat)
50 Double unders
The only substitutions I made were I used a 14 pound ball for wall ball, and I did 150 single jumps instead of 50 double-unders (it's a jump-rope exercise). Last time I did this, I scaled everything to 30 reps, and did much lighter weights (26lb. kettlebell, 6lb. ball), and even then I barely survived. This time I felt great, and next time I will do it 100% as prescribed with no substitutions.
My body is beat, and I have to take care of some things today, so I will be using today as a rest day, and come back stronger tomorrow. If I can stay at or below 209 I will make my goal by Friday, so here's hoping :)
