When there is nothing left, push

maxresdefault[1]So the plan going into today was mostly core work which would include hanging exercises. After I did three short, difficult, static L-seat holds I tried to move on to ab roll outs.  That plan got scuttled after 3 reps when it felt like my abs were tearing as I got parallel to the floor.

I then tried to do some alternating skin the cat and discovered it was the one movement that actually aggravates my forearm more than the pull ups. Awesome.

I made a command decision to fill the rest of my workout with nothing but high rep bench press sets at 135 pounds.  In total I knocked out 65 reps, at least they didn’t hurt.  I started my workout with 61 solid push up reps.  I am trying to see if I can keep growing that number.
