Burpees and Thrusters and Lunges… Oh, My

With a promise to Dave — and a warning to Crystal — that I would “take it easy,” I jumped out of bed this morning before the alarm (hooray!) and bundled up for Bootcamp.

I’m madly in love with my new cold weather Under Armour tights and hoodie — very snuggly, incredibly comfortable, and black black black.

Our workout was challenging, but I scaled it and it felt pretty good. I wasn’t 100%, but I’m definitely feeling better than I was. Woot!

Our workout
For time, 25-minute cutoff, any order and arrangement:

  • 100 burpees
  • 100 thrusters, 10-lb. dumbbells
  • 200 walking lunges
  • 3 laps around the field

I broke ’em up into sets of 10 burpees, 10 thrusters, 20 lunges and after every 3 rounds, I took a lap. Toward the end, when I was getting fatigued, I alternated 5 burpees and 5 thrusters to get ’em done.

At the cutoff, I’d finished:

  • 95 burpees
  • 90 thrusters
  • 200 lunges
  • 3 laps

Not bad, considering.

Med ball abs, 6-lb. ball

  • 15 cradles
  • 15 double-knee slams
  • 15 2-tap Russian twists w/ overhead tap
  • 25 straight-leg crunches w/ ball
