I cracked 3 minutes for 50 burpees which is great! I’m not back to my best time from about 5 years ago when I was doing them more often. I have a very different mindset about them this time. Instead of suffering I look at them as a small crucible in which to begin to forge increased mental toughness.
I went to the North American Auto Show yesterday. We casually walked around for about 2 hours. It certainly wasn’t hard core exercise by any stretch of the imagination but it was a lot of fun and I was moving the whole time.
I did a great workout in the afternoon. I did 15 sets of the following circuit:
- Kettlebell curls with the 62 pounders (hey – a guy can curl every once in a while)
- Pushups using my 71 pound KBs as handles and my feet elevated on a table.
- Jumping rope
- 10 burpees
Skipping is a real challenge when you get tired. It also takes quite a bit of mental focus. It was a great workout and took around 50 minutes or so. I am loving the process of ratcheting up the intensity of my workouts. There are so many more opportunities to cram more work into the same period of time.
