15 Cal Ski
10 Heavy Wall Balls (30#)
5 Over-the-Shoulder Med Ball Cleans (100#)
I was thinking yesterday that I do too many five-rounders, so I punched this one out to seven.
I averaged about four minutes a round. The first round only took 2.5 minutes, so only God knows how long rounds six and seven were taking.
The med ball cleans blew up my lower back. I moved really close to the wall on the wall balls to take stress off it.
I also learned a handy tip – when doing a med ball clean, straddle the ball. Like, stand completely over the ball when you pull it off the ground – one foot on either side of the ball. This makes it a lot easier, and moves the stress to your hamstrings and glutes, where it should be, rather than your lower back.
