3. Energy
45# plate push on towel - 2 lengths of basketball court(25m?) rest 90 seconds x 3
Time: 0:28, 0:38 1:04

-5/3/1 week 3 overhead press day
-press - I'll take it!
-towel pullups - Apparently the towel was telling me to lose more weight as it ripped in half on trying a 4th set, sweet....
-Kroc Rows - 105!!!! I think next time i'll put the towel stuff after the Kroc Rows, my hands were feeling a bit tired
-Neck and ABZ - Hit the neck but forgot the ABZ, didn't even realize it until before falling asleep last night
-Plate pushes - This sucked!@#@!#@!#@!%%#@$ The first set was fine, the 2nd.....shaky the 3rd was awful, by the time I finished my legs were cramping, I had force myself to walk around the gym for 10 minutes to get force blood into my legsed and driving home I was wondering if I should have waited longer as I felt like CRAP.

This is an exercise worth revisiting but next time either I need to not do 2 lengths per set or I need more rest between sets, something has to change. The first length wasn't bad at all it was coming back where it started to suck....That was ridiculous.
