Instead of making the return voyage to DC on a comfortable train and sipping a nice glass of Chablis while writing this post (I have no clue what a “Chablis” is, by the way. I just thought it sounded bourgie.), I’m currently in the front seat of our loaner car typing away on my phone. Why, you ask…?
Because I wanted PF Chang’s.
Before you make fun, remember: PF Chang’s has an extensive gluten-free menu and possible the best Mongolian Beef on earth. So… I decided I wanted to partake in some of Mr. Chang’s delights before embarking on an 18-hour train ride. The inherent problem with stopping at a restaurant, in a mall, for lunch, with a baby, and ordering 15 courses, is that shit makes you late. So we missed the train, and now we’re driving; all the way from Florida to DC.
Oops. My bad.
It’s ok though; we got a refund on the train and the loaner is a sweet BMW. Also, there’s plenty of Wendy’s along the way if I need a paleo meal.
And here’s the Thoroughbred’s take on “Poo-Poo Head Burpees“.
Lauren Brooks almost killed herself in Naples, and here’s her recap. But she may have also invented a new lift. It’s called the “Pee-Pee, On the Knee, TGU, Duck-Walk, Clean.” You should NEVER try it; unless you’re into that.
Pretty sweet that I got “pee-pee” and “poo-poo” into one post. Beat that, Kelly Starrett.
1) Back Squats: 1X5 @ 60%, 1×5 @ 65%, 1X5 @ 70%, 1X5 @ 75% – rest 2 to 3 minutes between sets.
2a) 4X5 STRICT Weighted Chest to Ring Pullups – heaviest possible, rest 60 sec.
Notes: These should be performed with a false grip, even if you do not normally use a false grip for Muscle-Ups. Also, try to pause for 2 counts when the ring makes contact with the chest. If you cannot perform these with weight just use BW. UB sets are not necessary. Use a band if necessary to complete all reps.
2b) Front Squats: 1X5 @ 60%, 1×5 @ 65%, 1X5 @ 70%, 1X5 @ 70% – rest 60 sec.
