21st May, 2012 — Workout — Horizontal Pulls & Jackknife Squats

So today I decided to do a little something different. I unfortunately forgot the power cord for my Mac so I was unable to film what I did, but you’ll be able to see on Thursday when I film the next one. For the Horizontal Pulls I’m actually completely suspended in the air, I put my legs on a swing, and I do the pulling bit on a hanging pair of gymnast rings. It was a lot more intense than what I’m used to, as you can tell by the rep count. Surprisingly I felt like it was a much better workout though 🙂

I kept the rest between reps to 120 Seconds, and between the work sets was 150 Seconds.

ROUND II

The Jackknife Squat’s are becoming far too easy. I think I’m going to have to go onto the next step. I’m getting in way too many reps, and am really training for endurance instead of strength. Although they don’t really start to even burn until I get around 50 reps.

Not much for today, but still feel like I got in a good workout. I’m trying to cut down on my time, as I usually spend about an hour and a half each day doing these. How was your workout today?

  1. It was ok; 20, 20 full PU followed by 7, 8 close PU. Then 15, 18 flat straight leg raises. Thank you for asking 😉 I try to keep the reps down and the exercises hard. Been doing CC since late December 2011. Keep going strong Big B!
