I manned up and attempted a version of the Russell's terrible workout. I haven't done any specific met-con training in at least 6 months. I have done endurance training (triathlon) and I grapple 2 - 5 times a week so I thought I would be ready for the challenge. Wrong!

3 Rounds with a power bias (1 minute rest between rounds)

Row at a damper of 10 1 minute
100 single unders (I really suck at double unders and wanted to keep moving)
21 swings with a 45 lb db (biggest I have)

Rd 1 283 M, Unbroken, 11 / 10 3:24
Rd 2 295 M, Unbroken, 11 / 10 3:21
Rd 3 280 M, 50 / 50, 7 / 7 / 7 4:05

That was a total a$$ kicker. I planned on doing a 4th round but I was so close to puking I didn't. I finished 25 minutes ago and I am still shaking. I finished with 3 sets of Neal's totally functional neutral grip curls to insure that I was properly warmed up for my birthday party at the lake tonight .
