My brief Friday morning workout

Sometimes life gets in the way and planned workout times and duration change. When that happens, you can never go wrong with the something is better than nothing mindset and that is what I had to do yesterday morning. I like to train on Friday starting around 12:00 noon for about 90 minutes; yesterday I began my shortened workout about 9:40 a.m. and was done about 45 minutes later. I did something and that is better than nothing. Here’s what I did after a quick 5 minute warm up (all loads are in lbs.):

Olympic style back squats – 45x10 – 95x5 – 115x5 – 135x5 – 155x5 – 175x5 – 135x5

Behind-the-neck split jerks – 45x10 – 95x3 – 115x3 – 135x3 – 155x1 – 175x1 – 195x1

Weighted standard grip pullups – warm-up of BWx3 and then BW+65 for 3-2-1

Standard grip pullups - 2 minutes of BW for 7-6-4-2-2-1-1 with as little rest as possible – I quit at about 1:50 and 23 reps.

Here’s a video of my 1st set of weighted pullups BW plus 65 lbs. for 3 reps:

There was nothing spectacular about my brief Friday morning workout.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
