Deadlifts, Push Ups, and A Whole Lotta Lamb

Two Eggs Scrambled w/Ground Lamb (3oz)

Scoop of Organic SunButter

Chipotle Turkey Breast (5oz)
Cucumber (1/2 English)
Handful of Blueberries

Lamb Burger (6oz)
Red Leaf Lettuce w/Cucumber (1/2 English), Grape Tomatoes (6), Greek Olives (6), Goat Milk Feta (1oz), and Mixed Herb Vinaigrette (I used Citrus Champagne Vinegar and I was feeling wild, so I added mint)

I made this burger in the morning while I cooked my eggs, to save time. When I got home, I assembled my salad and crumbled the burger on top. I also made extra dressing and cut up the rest of my veggies for a salad tomorrow.

Uhhh, yeah...that was brutal. Thank you, John. By the time the deadlifts begin to taper off, you have (well, I had) nothing left in your arms for the push ups (which I already pretty much despise...). Plus, my hamstrings were already blasted from yesterday's back squats. Hopefully I will be able to walk tomorrow. :) The deadlifts are done at body weight (my weight is 137lbs). I did all of my push ups CrossFit Games style (chest to the ground with a little lift of the hands and then back up to plank); they were definitely more work, but actually less awkward for my double jointed elbows, oddly enough. My deadlifts were done in three sets of 7, on the first set and then one at a time throughout the rest of the WOD. This is an awesome workout and I have 2Pac to thank for the motivation. 

My music of choice, for workouts? Rap. What's yours?
