Today’s Workout: Poker Face
This was one of my favorites. Especially, what I have dubbed the “Surfer Burpee”. It’s similar to a regular burpee, except you start laying down instead of the plank position. You then power up using your arms into the surfer position.
The dip in my heart rate at around 21 minutes was setting up my timer and finding my skipping rope. My heart rate dropped ~26 bpm in 1min 32 seconds. Ideally I’d like to see >20 bpm in 60 seconds or under. I’ll be sure to keep an eye on this metric to see if it improves in the next month or so.
|Workout||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4|
|Roundhouse Kick + Crunch (Left)||14||16||10||10|
|Roundhouse Kick + Crunch (Right)||17||15||13||10|
|Ninja Jump + Sandbag (12lbs)||4||4||4||5|
1 This is my notation for repitions: First is always rest, second is work, and the third number is number of rounds. So you’d read this as 10 seconds of rest, 20 seconds of work, 10 times.
