Meathead Tuesday Workout

An excellent meathead session today in the gym. Short, yet effective.

Today's workout:

1A) Rack Lockout (245x3x6)
1B) Underhand Seated Row

2A) Pullups - 1 set of 8
2B) Chinups - 1 set of 8

3A) Bodyweight triceps extensions with rings
3B) Barbell curls.

I dropped full range of motion pressing today because my left shoulder is still not 100%...I should have done this 3 weeks ago, but I'm a meathead.

Fortunately, I'm getting ART on Friday from my chiro, and I should be 90% next week...rack lockouts don't bother it, so I'm using those for one more phase...might add floor presses as well.

Today's resource:

Everyone, including me, is currently reading Jay Ferruggia's latest book for ideas

=> Jay Ferruggia's Minimal Workout

And today's kickbutt mindset tip is a classic:

"Anything in life worth having is worth working for."

Stay strong ALL week,

Did my last Meatheads 4X4 workout today at school during lunch. Loved the program for its minimalist approach...did lots of work in a short time. Thanks for the link to diesel training for grip strength.
