HRV: 92 (-6/green)
Click Test: 81
12min Versa Climber (low cadence-high resistance-HR 150-160)
(set 1: no vest, set 2/3: 40lb. vest)
Notes: Woke up a 2am last night and couldn't get back to sleep. Ate too much too late and my stomach was dancing in the middle of the night. Got back to sleep around 4:30 then woke up at 8am for my chiropractic session. Hit the first workout afterward. Had pretty good energy coming into the workout. New what was to come so I was in a decent state of mind. Warmed up with a 400m empty prowler push. Boy did this get my calves COOKING! Took about 6min which was a perfect warm-up for the versa climber. Our VC doesn't have resistance settings so I was pondering whether or not to wear a weight vest. I did the first set with cadence around 70-75 and my heart rate was barely geting into the 140s. Decided to throw on a 40lb. weighted vest it lower the cadence for the next couple of sets. That did the trick. Cadence dropped to 55 and heart rate sat between 150 and 160. It was a pretty terrible experience, but I grow more confident in my abilities after a workout like this.
5min Z1 Row
600m @ 75%
5min Z1 Row
Notes: Held 2:22 for all 600s (roughly a 2:00/500m pace). No real trouble on this. Kept my HR under 160. Focused on good technique and breathing.
