Weird A** Virtual Shovel workout:
shovels: 6' 35lb girly bar plus 25lb plate and 10 extra . . .
10:35 . . . Kempie is right, this was just wrong . . .
touching end of bar over a 26" stepladder, with an 18 inch base . . .
The thing I noticed about this, is I'd like to know where you ought to put your hands. If its one hand at the far end and one in the middle, then I didn't quite do that. I had my hand closer to the end of the bar, I mean, not to the end, but somewhere between smooth part of the bar and the knurling. I can't remember, but I'm with Kempie, it's like a deadlift with a Franken step . . .
Went back and looked at the vid and the woman was holding the bar pretty close to the weight, the picture on the Brand X site showed it more like a shovel, but if that was a 45lb plate, that guy is a hoss . . .
Anyway, I think my pushups were pretty good but this was a chest, back, and grip destroyer. Plus the whole multiples counting thing . . . over and back = one. I had LOTS of redone reps because when I get into the wod i get the dain brammage and I start counting the easiest thing which is every time the bar taps the floor . . .
