2nd WOD - tabata :20/:10 - 32x (8 sets of squats, knee push ups, lunges and kte (poo)) - i was supposed to take out the squats and put in sit-ups, but I wanted a comparison point to the last time I did this workout. The # of reps in December was 392 and i was near death. Today I got in 436 reps - would have liked to have done more, but those knees to elbows are a pain and so painful especially at the end of this workout. So for me, good result...10% improvement. Doesn't seem like much, but I also don't feel as bad as I did after the last time I had done this. Much better recovery.


  1. I can't believe you don't think a 10% improvement is much. Heck, I'm happy with 1% improvements. Great job on the workout.

  2. thanks martin...i was definitely happy with the 10% increase, but i knew that i probably could have pushed it more on the back-end if i hadn't been so tired on the lunges/knees to elbows. how are you?
