Woops. I almost forgot to post something today. That would have broken my streak of daily postings at 219.
Well screw that! Here I am and I ain’t gonna leave!
Max Capacity Training. Today marks my return to working out using Max Capacity Training, restarting on Day 25. Using a 50-10 protocol, exercises for today are:
- High Knee Jumps: 25
- Wall Hand Walkouts:
- 1 Leg Hip Bridge: 25
- Invisible Chair: 42
As I have mentioned before, I’m a bit worried about how the high knee jumps will work since my ankle is still a bit weak. I’ll have to be careful and make sure I don’t re-injure myself.
Also, the wall hand walkouts are going to suck big blocky ones. But hey, you only live once and I can put myself through lots of kinds of hell if it’s only temporary.
I’ll post my results and review here as soon as I finish sometime this afternoon.
Holy crap that was hard. I think this workout hits the legs even harder than workout 3 (Squat-Touch-Reach, Reverse Lunge, Drop Squat, Plank).
As I expected, the Wall Hand Walkouts killed me. After the first round of trying to walk in and out, I switched to holding it as a vertical plank (the recommend alternative) and still had a helluva time with it.
All three other exercises really hit the quads, glutes, and hamstrings hard. By the end, I was sweating bullets and gasping for breath.
Big tip folks: do not take four and a half weeks off in the middle of your MCT workouts if you can help it.*
My (healing) ankle injury didn’t bother me today but being out of practice working hard for 16 minutes straight just about killed me.
Wednesday will be the same exercises with a Tabata protocol and Friday will be a Time Attack protocol.
Plan for Week 32.
* My last MCT workout was July 8.
