This may be the toughest workout I've ever done

weights, deadlift
My trainer is going out of town for a week, so I think he wanted to make sure I got a really hard workout in.
After we did warmup and foam rolling, we did the dreaded deadlift/rowing machine combo:
Deadlift 135lbs x 8 reps
Row 200m
Deadlift 185lbs x 3 reps
Row 100m
Deadlift 185lbs x 3 reps
Row 100m
Deadlift 185lbs x 3 reps
Run 100m on the treadmill because someone else was on the rowing machine
Deadlift 195lbs x 2 reps
Row 100m

Then we did a couple of sets of a walking lunge/single arm overhead press combo followed by a particularly evil dynamic plank variation where you walk your feet around in an arc while keeping your hands in pretty much the same spot until your feet are pointed 180 degrees from where you started.

We finished up with some TRX and Rip trainer stuff. And some stretching.

If I can deadlift 195lbs for 2 reps, I suspect I can manage 200lbs for a single rep. Gonna give myself a little recovery time before trying to prove that, though.

It's a little croggling to think that if I came with convenient handles attached, you could deadlift me without breaking a sweat. If I ever need to be pulled out of a burning building or something, I hope you're nearby! <g>

If you ever need to be pulled out of a burning building, my first choice would be for the entire municipal fire department to be somewhere nearby. ;-) But if I should be the only one available on the scene, it is nice to think that I might be strong enough to be useful.

Well, naturally. :-) But you stand a much better chance of playing the Heroic Civilian role than I do.
