7.30.18 – Burpees, Pull-Ups & Swings, Oh My!
Posted on July 25th, 2018 to Workout Wednesday
You wanna know what I’m not doing tonight? I’m not sitting around jealous of other people’s success or being resentful of other people’s hard work. I’m not badmouthing people: to their face, behind their back, or from behind the safety of a keyboard. And I’m definitely not engaging in the hatred that has seemed to fill our world lately. Instead I’m just hanging out (literally and figuratively) focused on being the best version of Bobby Maximus that I can be. Three more things. One, I just referred to myself in third person. Deal with it. Two, I probably need dance lessons. Three, isometrics work. They really, really work. That’s all. Have a great night. Love you all. #everydamnday #hateitorloveit #backabs ???? @drdre
The above iso pull-up (second movement in my workout) from Bobby Maximus is an awesome example of time under tension being just as valuable as rep range. They are also a perfect pairing with burpees which I do a lot of. The combo of pull-ups and burpees hit every muscle in your body and are the perfect way to start your day.
I’m working towards my goal of 25,000 burpees in 2018 for the Courage Foundation and have definitely seen a positive change in my upper body and overall conditioning (pic below). The burpees continue to be part of my daily routine and I love it.
If you’re in a rush, can’t make it to the gym, or need to get your energy up, just rip out some burpees and your body will thank you.
Below is what I crushed at home.
10 Rounds of:
A1. 10 Burpees
A2. Iso Pull-Ups for 20-30 seconds (mix up your grip and go as slow as possible)
A3. 10-20 reps of KB Swings, Snatches, and/or High Pulls (mix it up and have fun)
Thank you for reading and keep crushing!
