Pull Variety

Stayed up and watched #Breaking2 last night. Pretty incredible to think about all of the planning and commitment that went into it. Amazing what the human body can do. I ended up sleeping until almost 11am! Little rough rolling out of bed. This stupid fucking back! Out to the garage around 12:30.

Hybrid Push Only

  • 3×12 Rope Pull-ups (4×3 switching high hand)
  • 3×17 Rack Chins
  • 4×12 (5-4-3) Pegboard Pull-ups
  • 3×20 DB Curls (20#)
  • 3×20 DB Front Raises (10#)
  • 3×15 Shoulder YTs (CS purple)

Continued with altering some of the pull-ups to different variations. I recently bought a climbing rope so wanted to use that. No Is today because of the front raises.

Performance Plus

  • 2×30 seconds each side – Pec Minor Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • 2×16 alt Bear Rolls (video)
  • 4x30s KB Arm Bars (25# KB, video)
  • 2×16 alt Bear Rolls

I did the arm bars alternating side to side, so it was 8 total.

Wasn’t sure how it would feel, but headed out for a run. The heart rate zone alerts were going nuts for probably the first 10 minutes, but I never once checked time or pace through the whole run. I just felt like going and not being concerned with anything. Did a typical loop for 2.59 miles, which took 28:03.

Pegboard Pull-ups

Sore all over from “Barbara”!! Quads, obliques, abs, lats, scaps, delts, and biceps. Did I forget anything? My early in the week plan for yesterday was to get in the Push-Only Pull-up day, but obviously that wasn’t going to work after that workout, so I had bumped it out until today. Got out in the garage at night after work. Thought I’d mix things up a bit and get some use out of the pegboard.

  • 3×15 Pegboard Pull-ups (3×5 each round)
  • 3×15 Rack Chins
  • Uneven Pegboard Pull-ups
    • 2×6/6
    • 2×4/4
  • 3×20 Hammer Curls (15#)
  • 3×20 Should IYTs (purple Crossover Symmetry)

Pump!! I really need to use the pegboard a lot more since I have it. If my previous uses have taught me anything, I’m going to be extremely sore for the next few days.

The Performance Plus programming fit in pretty well today…

5 Sets

  • 6 Russian Push-ups (video)
  • 6/6 Half Kneeling DB Press (40#)

Wow, I thought I was taking it easy picking 40#. Weak ass!! Supposed to be bottoms-up KB presses, but I have none at home. I could bring my 50# one home but that’s too heavy anyway.

Conditioning

  • 20:00 Airdyne

Aerobic work, but the damn Garmin was reading a heart rate of 101 again. Starting to really piss me off. I did 7.39 miles (11.89 km) for 568 calories. Thought about running, but it was already getting pretty dark outside. Good excuse anyway.
