725 reps and 125 chinups

I started walking and bodyweight squatting down chin-up road today. Stopped along the way to smell the bench press.

Today's workout:
725 total reps
400 squats
200 pushups
125 chinups

plus bench press on Jim Wendler's 5-3-1 program.

Here's a quick circuit I posted on FB:
Quick Circuit for a client this morning (15-20 reps on each): Bodyweight Squats, KB Deadlift, Close-Grip Pushup, Total Body Extension, TRX Row or TRX Rear-Delt Raise, Ab Wheel Rollout. No rest between exercises. 2 circuits for beginners, 3-4 for intermediate, 5-6 for advanced.

And tons of exercise ideas for bodyweight and kettlebell workouts:


Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Start by reading more powerful stories on my favorite FB page -

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go! . So let's go! Start now. Change today. You CAN do it. Dr. Seuss, Dr. BallySeuss, and I believe in you.

And for the more hardcore:

"There will come a point where doubt and fear will attempt to overtake your heart. The voices in your head will tell you to stop. They will try to tell you to quit. They will try to tell you that you can't go any further. Don't listen to them. Look within yourself and find your courage. Find your heart. Believe in yourself. When you think you can't go any further just take one more step. Keep moving forward. Keep breathing. Keep fighting. I promise you that you'll make it. You are too strong to fail. No matter how dark the storm the sun will always shine again. Brighter than ever." - Robert MacDonald, from Gym Jones

Shine on,
