100 Deadlifts 200 Sit-ups and 100 Calorie Row

Yesterday evening, I had my first massage in probably a year or more. It was awesome and my chronically sore shoulders felt awesome today. We didn't really do a shoulder intensive workout but it felt awesome to have much of the tightness and soreness gone. 

100 deadlifts at 135 is very doable for me. I broke it down 30-20-10-10-10-10-10. 

200 push-ups was tough for me and I'm not sure why. I've been doing 100 GHD sit-ups before many of the classes but had to trudge through. For some reason, my back tightens up when I do sit-ups. I tried with and without an abmat with no improvement. The good news is that I pushed through the last 20 laps despite the pain. Working through the pain will be an important ability for competitions. 

100 calorie row sounds worse than it really is. A good pull can get me a calorie on the rower. I believe that I didn't use more than 150 pulls and was able to finish fast. 

All-in-all, it was a good day. A hard workout but nothing I couldn't do (see muscle ups). Now I just need to figure out way my back muscles tighten up on sit-ups.
