  1. Super Stoked!!! Did my first pull-up since my bike accident on the Chicago Lake Shore Path (July 12th). Still wearing my wrist brace but the fact I can grip and hang was awesome.
    With that… I decided to go ahead and do 99 more.
    Used the door frame pull up bar and did 100 Dead Hang Pull Ups. No kipping because A. It hurt my wrist to try. B. There was no room to kip because I was close to the ground.
    100 Dead Hang Pull Ups = 16:38
    (Not mad considering I haven’t done a pull up in over a month and a half, but the fact that my PR is 16:52 on this whole workout puts things in perspective)
    Angie Time: 30:50
    My goal was under 30 minutes considering I knew the pull ups were going to take forever. Didn’t push myself as hard as I could have as I’ve been crushed after this workout in the past.
    But still happy to get pull ups back.
    Other Times?

    • Oh yeah.
      Broke my Push Ups into sets of 10 until the last 10 reps were 2×5.
      Sit ups were straight through with no stopping. Steady pace.
      Air Squats- 2 x 50. Video taped this part and definitely need to work on technique. Fatigue was certainly a factor but needs to be better.

  2. Soo…clearly I need to cut some time, and strengthen my upper body, but I don’t think it will take too long…plus two things that will help my time in the future will be…
    1) Dropping some weight…right now I’m moving more weight than I’m used to
    2) Pacing myself, as long as having a better idea of how to break up my sets
    anyway, here is how I ended up
    10 min warm-up
    18:17 Pullups (100) (needed assistance, always started without assistance first)
    11:50 Pushups (100)
    10:48 Situps (100)
    7:21 Squats (100)
    Total workout with some rest between ended up being 1:02:21

    • Next time I want to do use a little assistance on pullups as possible, break my situps and pushups into 4 sets of 25, and my squats into 2 sets of 50
