What a WOD! Last night’s WOD was a 4 rounder of 500m rowing and 50 kb swings @ 55#. Not only were my forearms blown up, but my glutes and hamstrings were feeling it too. I love this kind of WOD. I recently read an article about mental toughness and it really made me think during the WOD… “Do I really need to stop here for a breather or can I go on?” In most cases, I had the ability to go on. In some cases though, my hands could no longer safely grip the kettlebell and I had to dry my hands and stretch my fingers a bit before moving on. I’ll see if I can find that article and link it below. I hope it has the same positive effects on you.
