The secret is to rest BETWEEN the swings, while the bell is "floating" in midair. :idea: ;)

Yes to the second example, it's a step towards one arm pushups. The line jump burpees shown aren't exactly the same, I was jumping sideways, but if you do them like the vid it's fine too.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2

WEEK 2, WORKOUT 5

-- 5 ROUNDS OF: --

1A. High Pull x 3 (135#)
1B. Plyometric Pushups x 3
1C. Sideways Sledgehammer Swings x 10/10. Sub KB swings if needed. I actually used a homemade 15# chishi and swung it sideways into my heavy bag.
-- 15 seconds rest --

-- 10 MINUTES OF: --

2A. Pullups x 5
2B. Pushups x 10
2C. Situps x 15
2D. Squats x 20

3A. Thick bar reverse wrist curls (20#), 2 x 20
3B. DB Screw Curls (35#), 2 x 6. In a screw curl you start as a hammer curl, then at the halfway point you turn your hand palm up, and then reverse that on the way down.

Finished off with some hip and shoulder openers.

Hey Cesar, ready for a whole new week? Things are going to be a bit different, the high volume of the last two weeks should have us nicely set up for some more intense work. If you haven't finished last weeks workouts, skip them, you're ready.

-- 12-10-8-6 REPS OF: --

1. Zercher Squats, do 12, quickly add 5-10 pounds, do 10, add 5 or 10 more, and so on. Keep rests as short as possible. Push it!

-- 12-10-8-6 REPS OF: --

2A. Tricep Pushups (hands close together)
2B. Bent Row or Suspended Row, with palms up and pulling to stomach.
-- Don't rest at all, keep the resistance the same and sprint through. --

-- 10 EMOTM ROUNDS OF: --

3A. 1-hand DB Snatch x 5/5
3B. Burpees x 5

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4

WEEK 3 WORKOUT 1

-- 12-10-8-6 REPS OF: --

1. Zercher Squats. A bit of a disappointment on that. Started with 10 reps with 155#, I planned on 12 but my back started cramping. I then attempted another set of 10 with the same weight, I got to 4 reps before cramping. I dropped the weight to 145# and got another 4, then went to 135# for 6 reps and then 4. Between cramping and gasping for breath it was a real torture session. 8)

-- 12-10-8-6 REPS OF: --

2A. Tricep Pushups
2B. USA Row, with palms up and pulling to stomach.
-- This went fast but good, I was able to go down the ladder to up the resistance on the rows the last couple of sets. The next time I'll need to up the resistance on the tri pushups --

-- 10 EMOTM ROUNDS OF: --

3A. 1-hand DB Snatch x 5/5. I used a 40#DB the first 3 or 4 rounds, and 35# for the rest.
3B. Burpees x 5
-- Tough! The relatively light weight got heavy fast. The rest periods were way to short, 20-25 seconds at first and 15-10 by the end. --

Finished off with some stretching.

This was one of the most painful sessions I've had in a long time. :toothy: :twisted:

With a couple more exercises, the bar bell complex would be the Couture Complex- hmm, haven't done that in a while.

When I do the sit-thru, my non-working arm goes all the way to the floor and the working leg doesn't touch the ground. I call it a kick-thru. I'm wondering if it's a different exercise or just different styles?

No worries Cesar, have fun shoveling. Think of it as cardio. :eyebrows:

Weird workout. I was feeling froggy when I started so I did a few zercher squat singles and set a small PR. Then everything else after that sucked, I just felt weak and light weights felt very heavy. I guess setting the PR took all the froggy I had. :shrug: :roll:

WEEK 3 WORKOUT 3

1. Bottom position Zercher Squats (225#) 3 x 1. Three bottom position singles with a weight that I managed only one regular single a few weeks ago.

-- 5 E90S ROUNDS OF: --

2A. Clean and Push Press x 5
2B. Floor Press x 5
-- used 95#, and it felt heavy, bleah --

-- 5 E2M ROUNDS OF: --

3A. Alternating Lunge Jump x 10/10
3B. 2-hand KB Swing x 10 (40#)
3C. Hanging Knees to Elbows x 5

Thanks MIke! We've had several dustings this year (more than we got last year) but nothing more than a half inch or less. I miss the big snows we used to get

FRIDAY, FEB-BRO-RARY 8

WEEK 3 WORKOUT 4

A fairly short but VERY intense workout today. I think Cesar is going to love it... :mrgreen: :twisted:


-- 10 MINUTES OF: --

1A. Deadlift x 3. I started with 285#, then went to 275# and finished with 265#. :roll:
1B. Dragon Flags x 5. Still have to keep a slight bend in the waist but getting better.
1C. Dips x 7
-- I managed 6 rounds in 9:43, PAINFUL! --

-- 5-4-3-2-1 REPS OF: --

2A. Thrusters
2B. High Pulls
2C. SLDL
2D. Bent Rows
-- I used two 40#K-bells and finished in 5:13. My wife called upstairs "Are you dying in there?" The answer was yes, yes I was. :sparta: --

Finished up with stretching: Weighted squat stretch, standing pike, bridges, seated one leg pike, overhead tricep stretch, wrist stretches. Also some voodoo band.

Done! Pounded a quick protein shake and passed out on the coach for a half hour! :sleep:

Too bad you weren't here today Cheesedog, with you around my hour long snow shoveling workout could have been done in half the time (meaning you with your crazy conditioning would do it in half the time it would take me while I relax sipping on a cider :mrgreen:).

My conditioning is on target, but the weights were lighter than I wanted to use. Lately the weights have been feeling heavier, I think after this week I'll do a deload week.

That is a bad-ass circuit back there. Dragon-flag is first timer that I saw in your routine. That is awsome !

I used to do them occasionally. I decided to try to work them back in since they're such a great movement.

Today was a recovery day: 15 minutes fast cardio on the bike and about 30 minutes of yoga and stretching.

That's a good idea Cheesedog. I suppose now that I have a squat rack and some mats I could work the DFs in again too. It'll be nice to be able to do them at home instead of having to find an unoccupied bench at the gym.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12

Wow, this workout was WAY tougher than it looked. Totally beat me like a red-headed stepchild.


-- 5 EMOTM ROUNDS OF: --

1A. Leaning Pushups x 5
1B. Plyometric Pushups x 8
-- I managed to get EMOTM the first 3 rounds, but had to go to 90 second rounds for the last two, not because of cardio but muscle exhaustion. I actually had to do KNEE pushups for the last couple of rounds. :roll:

-- 5 EMOTM ROUNDS OF: --

2A. Front Squats (two 35# DB's) x 5
2B. Squat Jumps (unweighted) x 10
-- just like above, the last two rounds had to go to 90 second rounds. --

-- 5 EMOTM ROUNDS OF: --

3A. Pullups x 5, 4, 3, 2, 2
3B. Body Rows, pulling to stomach x 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, and had to get to a 45 degree angle to get these. :roll:
-- I already knew but never really felt how much your lats are used in heavy horizontal pushing. Pullups and rows sucked!

-- 5 EMOTM ROUNDS OF: --

4A. Dragon Flags x 5, 4, 4, had to switch to reverse crunches, 5,5
4B. Russian Twists (10#) x 12/12

Some stretching to finish off: kneeling backbends (my feet cramped), one leg pikes, tablemakers, two leg pike (got a MASSIVE cramp in my left lat :grrr!: , up and down dog.

So shaky I couldn't hardly walk, killer workout.

Looks like "eyes too big for your plate" syndrome!

What's a leaning push-up?

It sure was. It looked so simple when I planned it out.

A leaning pushup is just a regular pushup except you lean to one side so more of your weight is on that hand.

Thanks! Kind of like the type-writer pull-up, or do you just descend to one side and push off from that side.

Actually you can do them either way. The typewriter version is quite a bit harder though.
