10/9 Workout: Body Weight Challenge

6 am class with Boz. Had some whole milk before I left the Apt., definitely helps. We warmed up with the usual stuff, jump rope, pushups, squats and a run to the hydrant. Feeling surprisingly good this morning even though I got to bed late.

Workout: 5 Rounds with Partner
5 Pistols Each Leg (with or without support)
5 Weighted Pullups

7 vs. 7 Tug O' War to end the morning

I was surprised at both my pistols and my pullups. My pistols have improved greatly since the first time I did them. I am much weaker on my left leg than my right. I can almost do a right legged pistol on my own, I just need to work on the balance. Left leg has a ways to go. I started the pullups at 35# and quickly moved up to 50# for my fourth round. I got 4 pullups on my fourth and 3 on my fifth. I could have rested and gotten to five, but I wanted to see how many I could do without resting.

The Tug O' War at the end was awesome. We should do that more often.
