CrossFit Day 49

Today’s workout scared me a little bit, but I decided to see if I could increase my numbers over last time. It’s not a complicated workout. For those of us unable to do muscle ups, it simply asks for 120 pullups and 120 dips.

Just before sunset, I headed over to the elementary school nearby to do the work on the low bar and the rolly almost-as-low bar. Standing on the bench allowed my assisted pullups to be doable in a reasonable amount of time (I decided against doing jumping pullups just because of the sheer amount of work I’m doing today). The dips proved to be the most difficult and toward the end, each descent felt like someone was punching me in the sternum. But, I managed to yank and dip my way done with the exercise in under 15 minutes. I think my performance was okay, but nothing to get excited about.

My results: 14:00, 8:06 zone (hard); HR: 148 avg, 165 max; 164 cal

Next time I have to substitute assisted pullups and chair dips, I should probably do 6 per assigned muscle up, or even 8. […]
