The Challenge Truth and Deadlift Day

Friday is a great day for a manly workout of deadlifts. Deadlifts are a particularly appropriate exercise for Halloween. Should be International Deadlift Day every Halloween.

Unfortunately, today's workout left me pessimistic about being able to get all of my pullups and chinups done for the 33,333 challenge before the deadline. I planned this very poorly.

On the bright side, I hit my first milestone - 333 handstand pushups - and we're very close to the Burpee limit, too.

Today's training:

Warmup of squats, pushups, pullups

1A) Deadlift
1B) Jump
1C) Pullups
1D) Pushups

2A) Good Morning
2B) More Pullups
2C) Handstand Pushups

3) Burpees

Total Bodyweight reps for the challenge

673 reps

300 squats
230 pushups
70 burpees
55 pullups
18 handstand pushups

Trying to cram in all of the hundreds of pullups and chinups to meet the 33,333 challenge would be foolish. So I will only do what is safe. Too bad. I'll probably focus on chinups and hit that goal and leave the pullups as the only exercise I don't finish.

Here's another bad idea! This is NOT good for Halloween. Or ever. "The Franken Frappuccino" = Green Tea Frappuccino mixed with white mocha, java chips and peppermint syrup

The good life comes from the people, places, and experiences in your life. Live wisely. Renew a relationship. Reach out and start a new one. Do something different this weekend.
