No…..not a child, a weight vest. I can thank Feng Yi Chew for the phrase “the toddler”. She used to post on Facebook that she was working out with ‘the toddler’ and one day I had to ask, you have a kid? She said, “no, it’s my weight vest. It weighs about as much as a toddler.”
Today I did the CF warm up with ‘the toddler’ and boy did it make a difference. It’s amazing to see what 20lbs can do to you pullups, dips, situps, really all of it. Just wearing it I could feel the added pressure on my bones. If you’ve got a ‘toddler’ at your box give it a try, it’s an interesting feeling.
Handstand pushups (feet on bar)
And my cool down was really a second wod.
3 Clean and Jerks (95lb) on the minute for 15 minutes.
THANK GOD TOMORROW’S A REST DAY!
