175 lbs. – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5
These are, if anything, getting easier. Definitely getting an appropriate bounce, and it is noticeably less when I don’t set my lower back properly (as would make sense). Started to shorten my rest between sets in a hope to get my conditioning back to acceptable quicker. It’s still coming back quite rapidly, though, as these were easier than the ones at 155 lbs.
95 lbs. – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5
Five pound jumps. Ugh.
220 lbs. tire (?) – 2 x 1.5 down and backs.
The paint is rubbing off the tire, so I *think* it’s a 220 lbs. tire, but I’m not sure. And I have no idea what units to use for these. I literally just went down and back in one section of the gym. Made it one and one-half length, took a thirty second to minute break, and then went the other one and a half lengths to put the tire back where it belongs.
And man, did these kick my ass. Other than the fact that my arms are ridiculously dirty now, these were a lot of fun. They do more for my endurance than the farmer’s walks do, so I’ll probably do farmer’s walks on Sundays and these on Thursdays.
