12/24/2013 WOD "Vested"

by Ray Roman in , ,

Thank god for days like these! Working out can take a toll not only on your body but on on your mind as well. It's hard to stay motivated sometimes when you're feeling weak, and like you're not improving as fast as you'd like. Although I've been making great improvements lately, especially with my cardio; I've just been feeling worn out mentally.

The hardest part about working out is actually getting up and working out. When you're not mentally focused going into a workout routine, you most likely won't give it your best. Today was one of those days where I read todays WOD and was excited to workout!

Checkout the WOD my younger brother came up with for me to do today.

All exercises must be performed with a 20lb. weighted vest.
5 rounds for time:
-6 burpees
-4 dips
-2 pull-ups

AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) for 10 minutes:
-5 push press at 115lbs.
-10 dedlifts at 115lbs.
-15 box jumps at 24"

Rest for 1 minute and then go straight into the next routine.

AMRAP for 10 minutes:
-5 power cleans at 95lbs.
-10 back squats at 95lbs.
-15 push-ups

I felt great after completing this WOD! This evening I took my parents out to dinner for Christmas Eve; unfortunately I ended up eating a little too much tonight! It can be difficult staying discipline during the holiday season. I guess this is my 'cheat day' for the week, but always remember a cheat day really means you're cheating yourself!
