At times the whole world seems to be in conspiracy to importune you with emphatic trifles.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sounds as if the notorious R Wald-Em was down with trying to squeeze a few workouts into a hectic week.
A fine — no, an extremely fine — example of full extension.
Just a quick and dirty rundown for today, folks — gotta tune in to the VP debate tonight. Gimme a break already, I’m a PoliSci major — these things excite me. Not quite as much as fine demonstrations of full extension, but — well, anyway…
Thursday’s morning workout was constructed thusly:
- Romanian Deadlift/Bent-over Row combo x 5’s
- Ballistic bodyweight Pullups x 6’s
- Weighted Dips x 5’s
3 rounds, at weight, in approximately 30 minutes. Adjust weight so as to achieve maximum power in the 3 to 6 rep range.
A note on the RDL/BOR combo: each rep consisted of 1 full RDL from the ground, reset, then a BOR. Repeat for the 2nd rep on. Don’t dilly-dally on the reset, rip the weight right back up off the floor. Really concentrate on pushing the heels through the floor on the RDLs (trick:pull your toes back, and use the balls of your feet for stabilization, not the pushing focal point). Push your ass back as far as possible and lift from the glutes and hamstrings.
I gave blood today as well. Friday, therefore, will definitely be an off day.
