The New Black

Today's Motivation:

Or, at the very least, you won't feel the need to wear nearly as much black.

Today's Workout:

Because it is unseasonably (at least it feels unseasonably) warm, we started this morning with a lap around the building before moving into a warm up if stretching, planks, push ups, etc.

Afterward, we moved into front squats.  The goal was to work up to 3 sets of 5 reps at 75%, 80%, and finally 85% for max reps (based on Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 program, a training program Scott swears by).  Of course, I missed the boat and thought that we were supposed to simply work up to 85% and complete 3 sets at 85%.  Because I skipped  the 75% and 80% and went straight for 3 sets at 85%, I was only able to get to 8 reps on my max set.  Par for the course. 

We then moved into what I like to call a Killer Circuit - not exactly a walk in the park.

Good Mornings
It was a doozie.

Wish me luck, I am going to do my best to get up tomorrow in efforts to get on a M, T, Th, F workout schedule.  It sounds like torture.
