    Today's workout from the CrossFit main page:

    "Tabata This!"

    Tabata Row
    Rest 1 minute
    Tabata Squat
    Rest 1 minute
    Tabata Pull-up
    Rest 1 minute
    Tabata Push-up
    Rest 1 minute
    Tabata Sit-up

    The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 intervals.
    Tabata score is the least number of reps performed in any of the eight intervals. Unit for the row is "calories".

    Row 5
    Squats 24
    Kipping pullups 11
    Pushups 16
    Situps 16

    Total = 72

    All out on rows, squats and situps. Gamed pullups and pushups to keep the total number of reps higher than I can if I go all out on these movements. I would rather do 128 pushups total than 100 (which happens if I go all out each round with pullups and pushups). So I record my gamed numbers and attempt to add to the gamed number each time I do a tabata workout. Seems to be working very well with new PRs on pushups and pullups.

    Held 6 for the rows for two rounds. Held 25 for the first three rounds of squats. Gamed the pullups with the thought of 12 each round, but lost it the last two rounds with only 11 reps. Gamed the pushups for 16 each round. Situps were anchored with hands on chest.

    Sick last night and today, just feel beat. Not sleeping well, roughly 4 hours a night. Too many stressors in my life these days!

    Beltless deadlifts:

    275x5
    295x5
    315x6

    Not bad, stopped early on the last set (maybe two more in me).

    Strict pullups (no kip, chest touching bar):

    50x5
    50x5
    50x5

    Not all out, stopped early.

    Bench Press (first rep with long pause on chest):

    150x5
    160x5

    Full ROM HSPUs (hands on 12" stools, head touching ground):

    3x5

    Did not go all out on anything today. Not feeling the best so I terminated everything early.

    Changed the CrossFit WOD to fit my current goals:

    Five rounds for max reps of:

    2/3 Body weight Thrusters
    1/3 Body weight Strict No Kip Pull-ups
    3 minute rest break between couplets

    Thrusters:80# Pullups:40#

    26-12
    22-8
    19-6
    17-5
    15-5 (kicked out the final pullup rep)


    Very pleased that the thrusters endured as long as they did. Pullups suffering from yesterday's sets of strict 50# pullups and Wednesday's kipping tabata pullups.
