Tire Flip Training III – The Return!

Today’s weather in Asheville? Wet. Ideal for tire flipping? No. Should I do it anyway? You bet. Am I? No.

The weather combined with a weird schedule for the day makes the cross-town trip impractical, so I’m improvising. Keith (the owner of O3 Health & Fitness) came up with this earlier today so I thought I’d give it a shot.  Here goes:

0:40/0:20 interval timing for 5 rounds

On the 0:40 portion, perform a 135lb deadlift as many times as possible.

On the 0:20 portion, perform 3 burpees, and rest for the remaining time.

My nemesis

The 135lb is somewhat arbitrary.  It should be a weight that you can handle with minimal difficulty.  The real challenge with this workout comes from the pace.

For my 5 rounds I recorded 17, 14, 10, 10, and 9 reps on the deadlift.  The burpees were definitely looking a little iffy towards the end as well.

Wednesday’s practice session will need to be rescheduled or modified, as my training schedule that day has changed enough that I won’t be able to make the trip across town.  We’ll see what happens!
