    A. 3:58 I think.
    B. Just didn’t have shoulder strength today. 3, then only 2s until 3 in last round.
    C. Hmmmm.. No mention of the Airdyne above. Maybe it was just my own personal nightmare? Whatever – had to get Karen to drive home. Please just keep those #%*+ing things away from me.

  • Mark says:

    A 4:12
    B 3 strict up to round 5, then could only get 2 in round 6. After that it all went to custard. But this is an improvement over last time.
    C 7 calories. It ticked over to 8 as soon as I’d stopped pedalling – so probably 7.9?

  • Heinex says:

    A) 4:01
    B) Stoked to maintain 4 reps through all sets. Despite a few no reps in last round.
    C) T-shirt idea= Picture of me post aerodyne sprint with thought bubble “All that for 9 stinking calories! I’d rather be Bulimic!”

    • Heinex says:

      B) They were all kipped HSPUs

    • Ivan L says:

      But Erik – if you’d gotten 10 calories, you could probably have experienced the benefits of bulimia on top of the 10 calories burned. I bloody nearly did.

  • Olivia says:

    Rebound box jump skill work was good – got the bounce right out of the bottom for a few reps on a 20 inch box – now to maintain for volume! Control & balance 😉

    3:55 for the MetCon – felt a little sick after the 21 box jumps and took a quick breather so it was a bit of a sprint to finish.

    Strict HSPU volume is definitely coming along nicely – worked with a 15kg & 5kg bumper today (used 15kg & 10kg last week)
    Upped my target reps from 3 per minute to 4 reps per minute and maintained 4 until round 6, then I was plugging out doubles and singles for the last 4 minutes. Happy with progress 🙂

    1 min ME Airdyne – 7 calories (just hit 8 at 1:05) so I need to push harder to do it in the minute next time – 15 secs in and quads were pretty smoked after the box jumps.

    Nice Friday session – best of luck to Sean & Prue tomorrow; I will be covered in mud doing the Spartan Sprint with some of the Adapt peeps 🙂 Hopefully it stops raining soon or we will be underwater for the cargo net obstacle!! 😛

    5:10 using a 32″ box. In guy-inches that’s, like, 40 or something. I don’t want to know what it is in girl-inches (ask a girl to show you her definition of 6 inches – it’s a little scary and somewhat intimidating! :p ).

    7 rounds @ 3, 2 rounds @ 2 and then 1 round of about 0.6 (I believe in counting everything).

    Tried a different approach to get to 9 calories but still just managed 8. I think I’m up to Plan D for next time.

  • KJ says:

    a: 3.25 . Higher box was interesting. Stumbled twice! Saved it! No blood.
    B: 5 strict HSPU. These are def better than this time last week.
    Very busy 10am sesh this morning! Fun.

  • john parr says:

    A: yeah i got skills

    B: 3:30 rx

    C: worked on 4 hspu and maintained

  • James says:

    So many people in the 10am this rainy morning, great vibe! Including the ever elusive Dom – jeans and all.

    B: 3:33 Dayum quads were on fire.

    C: Sets of 3, only dropped reps in the last round, down to 1. When it goes it goes. Immediately following last set 2 ring MU.

    D: Butterfly PU practise and some bench press. Matty smashed out a 120kg single – solid.
