I don’t know what Tara’s thinking here, but I’m sure it has nothing to do with how much she loves push-ups.
AMRAP in 20 minutes of:
Notes: AMRAP workouts are really great at showing you whether you’ve improved your work capacity or not. Got 15 rounds last time and 18 this time? There’s demonstrable proof that you are becoming more fit. Neat eh? More work done in the same amount of time means you were putting more power out during the duration of the WOD. Mo powa = mo fit.
Here’s a cool story; Bobbie throws up 100 pull-ups in 20 minutes as her March goal. Today we talked a while during the warm up about how she’s going to work into this goal. We did a bit of strategizing and planning, ultimately deciding that she’d attempt it multiple times throughout the month, working her way towards 100. Then, low and behold, she knocks out 18 LEGIT rounds (plus some reps) of Cindy today, calculates the math and she hit almost 100 pull-ups in 20 minutes, all while doing push-ups and squats in between. Unreal.
Point is, sometimes over thinking these things distracts you from just putting your head down and doing the work and achieving your goals. Stop thinking, start doing.
