A. 185, 185, 190, 195 (this was almost a max effort), 190

B. First time doing Karen. Have been avoiding it for years as I hate wall balls.

Did the 18, 17, 16 etc rep scheme. Every round was UB but probably took too long of breaks.

8:36

Made up a nate ish wod at home. No wallballs or back squat at home. 🤷🏼‍♀️

20 min AMRAP

2 RMU – legs on a box.
4 HSPU
8 KBS
16 abmat sit ups
32 DU
8 + 4 DU. Finished up the rest of the DU for a total of 9 rounds.

Added the other two exercises, because I have been having issues with a strained tendon in my elbow/forearm, and RMU tend to frustrate it. Any tips for rehabbing what is essentially tennis elbow?

Oh no Janelle!! Have you tried mashing your forearms with a lax ball?

Janelle Winston

I have some, but it’s right up next to the elbow bone, which makes it hard to marsh purposefully. 🙂 Will do some more of it.

Does anybody have an issue with their scapular spine swelling whenever you do squats?

I get a bone bruise right across the top of both scaps where the bar sits (that’s where it sits on me anyway). I know what causes it but I don’t remember it happening when I was younger.

You can do more if it’s necessary. But for squatting today hips and ankles are in main focus as described.
