Chin Up Mania to the finish

It's time for another 4-week strength program to start. And yesterday I designed a new 4-week strength program for my #1 client, J-Roc. I will take the feedback on my program and his program to create some new Meathead's programs for the new year.

Today's workout was barbell squats paired with chinups (100 total reps), then circuit: handstand pushups, bw squats, pushups, burpees, rows.

Total reps accumulated = 751

300 squats
200 pushups
100 chinups
65 burpees
55 rows
31 handstand pushups

New single-session records for handstand pushups and chinups. Good times.

Looks like I will finish off the Handstand Pushups portion of the program this week. Pushups and rows will also be done soon...and then it's pullup, burpee, chinup, squat mania to the finish!!!

And here's my diet to check out:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
"You will face challenges in your life. Life isn't easy. You'll face hardships. You will get hurt. Your goals at times will seem impossible. There will be numerous obstacles that will get in your way. Don't alter your path. When a wall appears in front of you don't let it stop you. Put your head down, brace yourself, and run right through it. Destroy it and keep charging forward. Never look back." – Robert MacDonald, from Gym Jones

... Stay strong and keep on pushing on. Have an awesome week with great people...they are out there!

"Be careful whom you associate with. It is human to imitate the habits of those with whom we interact. We inadvertently adopt their interests, their opinions, their values, and their habit of interpreting events." - Epictetus

Choose wisely,
