I'll admit it - I'm guilty. If I followed my urges, I'd sleep in, skip workouts, eat bacon cheeseburgers on the daily, obviously followed with a side of crispy, peppery fries drenched in malt vinegar. Yum.
But, in the back of my mind I know better. I know that habits like that aren't going to get me where I want to be. Hence why I make myself reinforce the good habits on a daily basis.
We started with the bench press. The goal was again to work up to 85% of my max. Mine looked like this:
Bar (45 lbs) x 5
55 lbs x 5
60 lbs x 5
67.5 lbs x 5 (75% of max)
72 lbs x 5 (80% of max)
76.5 lbs x 11 (85% of max for max reps)
We then moved into a skill circuit of push-ups. I worked on the strict push-up and the ring push-ups for 3 sets of 5 reps.
We finished the workout with a 3 minute "as-many-reps-as-possible" burpee challenge.
Fun, fun, fun.
I managed 30 reps in 3 minutes. And then I thought I might die.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. And can I get a "hell yeah" for the short holiday work week next week?
Look for my Game Chili recipe this weekend (that I failed to post on Thursday because I'm a slacker). Next week I will try my best to get back on schedule. Life has been a little crazy as of late.
