Today Donna taught class at BizFit and I tagged along to do the workout, which was "Virtual Shovelling" - For time 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, and 5 rep rounds of:
With an Olympic bar holding only one plate (men use 45 pound plate, women use 25 pound plate), touch the plate on one side of the barrier then the other for one "rep." Barrier is 24."
I used a 25# plate on the 45# bar to be nice to my knees. Finished in 13:09
I also checked out Craigslist and picked up two 45# YORK Olympic plates for $50. These are old school dating from the early 70's.
