WOD for 2-10-2009
Kettlebell Swings, 21 reps
Helen has become one of my favorite benchmark workouts. Kinda funny coming from me, I know, since I hate running! I increased my weight on the kettlebell swings, went from the 18lb bell to the 26lb bell. I noticed a difference immediately, but it wasn't too bad. Pull ups again were done with the green band.
18# KB, jumping pull ups, Time: 17:??
18# KB, jumping pull ups (increased the number to 24 Pull ups), Time: 12:47
26# KB, green band pull ups, Time: 14:11
I can see the progress that I am making, which is very encouraging. However, I feel like I am hitting a wall. I am not able to string more than 5 band pull ups in a row without having to reset. And then on my last set of pull ups in these type of workouts, I am only doing 1-2 at a time, before having to stop. Which is kinda frustrating. However, as Koy points out, I was barely able to do band pull ups two weeks ago, and now I am doing them, it just takes me longer.
