Workout of the Day
Legless Rope Climbs, rest as needed
John and I took his rope up to the top of the Fair Oaks bluffs and tied it to a tree branch 15 feet high then took turns climbing it without our feet. We each did 20+ climbs before all was said and done, leaving our hands pretty callased and blistered from the effort. This is the first time I’d done legless rope climbs since last February I think, so it was a long time coming.
More than anything I enjoyed being outside on a nice night—the weather in Sacramento was mid 70’s with a warm breeze as the sun went down. Tomorrow will see a return to some heavy strength training, hopefully building on the gains I’ve made following 5/3/1 the past few months. I’m also hoping to get back up to Hope Valley for a mountain run later in the week. My grandparents and I did a hike this past Saturday and it was something to behold (pictured above). Hoping to convince a few of my friends around here to jump on the wagon.
