4 rounds + 16 lunges
I greatly underestimated how much the overhead lunges would take out of my arms. The first set of dips were quite a shock. I was also kind of surprised that I could actually do the overhead lunges. I can’t quite get the hang of doing lunges with a barbell on my back, but these weren’t too bad as far as coordination and balance were concerned.
I never know what to expect from myself. Things I don’t think I can do, I can do; things I’m positive I have nailed I can’t even touch. Crazy.
