For Max Calories
Every five minutes (at 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25), do FIVE heavy-ish Power Clean and Jerks.
This workout sucked, both because it was hard and because it was dumb.
I should have just done power cleans (no jerks), or lighter weight (I did them at 185; I should have done 155). The problem is that the cardio was really the lift – the ski, row, and bike turned out to be recovery.
My first round of barbell movements took less than a minute. My last round took about two-and-a-half-minutes. Then I would stumble back to a machine.
My cal counts plummeted
- Ski: 92 cals
- Row: 59 cals (I had a slight problem strapping in on the first round, and lost about 30 seconds)
- Bike: 37 cals
By the end, I was just wrecked, plodding along on the bike waiting for it to be over.
I should have backed off the weight. Lesson learned.
