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

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.
