Tuesday you will get the opportunity to take on bench mark Angie. She is one hundred reps of pull ups, push ups, sit ups, and then Squats. For modifications we can start with the movements: by using bands, going to your knees, squatting to a box and make sure you get challenged but not crushed. The second place we can go is to modifying the reps or finding a partner to share the work with. Ideally each movement should take less than seven minutes. If you need to challenge one or two of those movements and they take a little longer we will make sure you have time.
For our veterans, have a look back in the system and come in with a plan. With the current set back I was unable to kip and had to be very aware of my body position on the pull ups. This made it a very long day in the workout but was a good opportunity to grind through. Tomorrow is not only about chasing a personal best but may hold another opportunity to move your fitness game forward.
Thought of the day
Don’t let the math scare you. Sometimes looking at workouts like recent benchmarks, Andy and Angie, it can be easy to be intimidated by the math. But Rather than focusing on what the workout can do to you why not look at what you can do to it?
Last time on Angie you could have been using a green band, on your pull ups, but now you have five consecutive unassisted. That makes the pull ups an easy twenty sets of five. This may be a silly example but rather than looking at the number as a hundred break it down into manageable chunks and follow your plan. You will step into the gym or join us on zoom let’s make sure you feel up for the challenge rather than stopped by fear. We look forward to seeing you on zoom, in the open gyms, and in group classes.
