As some of you may know or may have noticed I have been posting more about my workouts lately. I am a powerlifter (in training – I say in training because I have a long ways to go and a lot of work to do) and my training is very important to me. I have been trying to work on my weak points lately by incorporating some different lifts from my normal regimen. But besides my 3 hard lifting sessions where I do my core work I also like to add in other workouts like crossfit for my conditioning. I hate traditional cardio and feel like I get way more out of crossfit-like workouts. Last Friday I decided to do the WOD (workout of the day) called Jack. It is in memory of Army Staff Sgt. Jack M. Martin III. Anyway, I really liked this workout and thought I would share it with you.
20 minutes AMRAP (as many rounds as possible):
- 10x push press
- 10x kettlebell swings – if you don’t have one of these, which mine doesn’t then I use a dumbell, it’s not quite the same, but it’s better than not doing them.
- 10 jump boxes
I was able to complete 8 rounds + 10 pp, 10 kb swings, and 5 jump boxes… Just couldn’t get them last 5 reps before the buzzer rang. Welp, go out there and give this a try. Guaranteed to work up a sweat! Train hard everyone! :)
