17 January 2010

It's another beautiful day in Austin! I went down to the AHS track this afternoon for some weight vest training.

I got started with the CC warm-up and double-under practice.

5 sets of parallel bar dips to failure w/25lbs vest
5 sets of dead-hang pull-ups to failure w/25lbs vest
*rest as needed between sets

dips: 22, 15, 17, 9, 10
pull-ups: 10, 6, 5, 5, 5

My numbers improved again in the first sets, so I was getting fired up and didn't rest enough between sets towards the end. Still though, I'm happy with my progress. Then I got in a short met-con...

4 rounds for time:
15 parallel bar dips (no vest!)
2 tire flips

My time was 4:59. Tough and fun! Feeling great!
