Sunday workout

Quick yet effective workout:

Push Ups on the Rings
3 sets x 10 reps 1 minute rest

Weighted Pull Ups
24kg x 3, 28kg x 3, 32kg x 2, 40kg x 1

KB Single Arm Clean and Press
28kg x 3 (L+R), 24kg x 5(L+R), 20kg x 5 (L + R)

Short and sweet. Felt great to lift some load on the pull ups. I have been doing bodyweight pull ups for too long. need to get back to some loading.

I've been waiting.........

lol. good to see you post again.hows the back?

Franz Snideman said...

Back is better. Thanks.

How is your training going? How is your body?

Mark Reifkind said...

better thanks. went too heavy for the last two weeks and it caught up with me last weekend. feeling looser now. it seems being loose is way more important to my health than being strong.

I think there is a balance between looseness and strength. Hard to find the perfect sweet spot between the two extremes. Like Mel Siff taught, maybe it's just a matter of really listening to your body and the perceived rate of exertion on any given day. I agree with you though, being loose and agile makes me feel healthier.
