Bench and Pullup Challenge

I'll admit, I don't like benching on Monday, because that is way too old school and stereotypical. But that's how my schedule came together this week.

But I hit a great workout, somewhat motivated by this classic quote. You gotta love it.

"The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total b******. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds." - Henry Rollins

My #meathead training today: Bench, row, pullups, dips, 1-arm row. Good times.

How many pullups can you do in 8 minutes? I can do 53. Don't go to failure on your first sets.

My 53 goes like this: 2x5, 1x4,9x3,7x2, & 1
