Upper Body Pushing in the Garage

Well, I'm shocked.

It turns out that ol' TTGPC, from yesterday's brutal leg workout, has almost no muscle soreness. That's great news, because he did over 160 reps - per leg! - of Bulgarian Split Squats in 45 minutes (plus a few other moves, of course). You'll get your chance to do a similar workout on June 2nd or 3rd, when you do workout B from the Max Reps program.

I'm really encouraged by the lack of soreness. In fact, TTGPC feels great.

This could be the best bodyweight performance improving program I've ever created at TT. Can't wait to see your results.

Today it was back into the garage for me...a basic upper-push strength workout, because tomorrow is a deadlift day, so I didn't want to fatigue the upper back or forearms.

1) KB Snatch - 4x6

2A) Powerblock Overhead Press - 3x5
2B) Band Pull

3A) Powerblock Floor Press - 4x15

4) TRX Triceps Extension

5) Max Pushups

And read this for exactly what to eat to start your day:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Don't wait. Don't hesitate. If you want to change, start now. Replace bad habits with good. Remove temptations. Plan, prepare, succeed.

Alright, back to work.

Push on,
