Who in their right mind signs up for this on purpose?

Today’s workout:

Yes, it was every bit as horrible as you might expect.  Well, as horrible as you might expect if you had the non-existent fore-arm strength that I do.  If you looked like someone — anyone — drawn by Arnold Friberg, then you wouldn’t have anything to worry about.

And if you weren’t sure what to expect because of all those weird terms, here’s a mini glossary:

  • Double-unders = Jumping rope, where the rope goes under twice for every jump
  • WOD = workout of the day
  • AMRAP = as many reps and rounds as possible within the specified time
  • Handstand pushups = do a vertical pushup while in handstand position
  • Hang clean = pulling a barbell with weights from approximately knee-height to your shoulders
  • Burpees = those things where you go from a pushup to a standing jump to a pushup, over and over and over again
  • Kettlebell swing = swing a kettlebell from between your legs up over your head

What a way to start the day!
