There are certain workouts that fill me with dread the minute I see them on the whiteboard. Pullups are one of those workouts. Scott calls them the ultimate test of strength. I call them a pain in the ass. The sets prescribed always seem impossible at the beginning, but I always manage to complete them. Moral of the story: don't sell yourself short; if you never try, you'll never know.
HUUUMMMPP DAAAAYY Workout:
I started the workout warming up with this core circuit:
Monday's workout focused on the lower body, so today's workout was all about the upper. My primary work circuit was made up of overhead presses, and, my all time favorite, pullups (lots and lots of sarcasm intended).
I then went into a quick total body circuit of thrusters. Holding two 15 pound kettle bells, I completed three one minute sets with one minute rest in between (for a total of 5 minutes).

Finally, I finished this hump day workout with five 30-yard reverse sled drags: 45 lbs, 70 lbs, 95 lbs, 70 lbs, 45 lbs.
