Oh fun plyo pushups. My first WOD back from Miami and I was ready to go!
Strength: 1RM HBBS
WOD: 8 Minute Climbing Ladder
2 – Plyo Pushups (2-45′s/2-25′s)
2 – Pull Ups
I ended up getting 235 on the high bar back squat. My max is 255, but I really prefer low bar. Whatevs.
Plyo push ups take everything to a whole new level. Even my massage therapist friend Chuck commented on how tight my chest was, and this was days later, mind you. I got through the round of 12, and even got an extra rep in. Pull ups were banded. Started with a purple band, switched to a green band, and in the end, used both. Pull ups fail. Oh well. Someday I’ll weigh less than 200lbs and I’ll be able to pull all this weight up to the bar. 🙂
