“They are very brave men, the way they talk right up. Now if it was me, I would double-talk.”
Remember, if you don’t watch, you can’t bitch and moan later —
The following was performed early, early in the morning on an empty stomach. I did have a good redeye buzz goin’ on, though.
- REA Squats + Behind-the-Neck Push-Press combo x 4’s
- Weighted, Regular-grip Pullups x 3’s
- Glute Ham Raise (GHRs) x 4’s
3 rounds of the above, then:
Barbell Lunge Isometric x 12 seconds, each leg — followed by:
Barbell Floor Press (rest-pause method), 10 “sets” of 2’s
Total time was still less than 40 minutes, warm-up included.
RJ Nelsen demonstrates the REA (reactive) Squat (actually, he’s doing an OSP squat as he’s using bands, but the motion of the OSP and REA movements are the same) and the Lunge Isometric in a pair of YouTube clips. For my version of the combo I did in #1 above, simply add on a BTN push-press following each REA squat. And interestingly enough, Christian Thibaudeau wrote a bit on the floor press in a Monday, T-Nation article. The rep ranges in all of these exercises are low, and the intensity is high. I’ve tried, as is my usual, to hone in on the sweet spot between weight used and speed of movement (Power).
