50 strict pull-ups
Post time to comments.
This famous 1984 TIME cover article was published soon after the results of the Lipid Research Clinics Coronary Primary Prevention Trial (LRC-CPPT) were released. The article cemented the idea that dietary cholesterol and saturated fat were linked to heart disease and should be reduced in the American diet. It broadly illustrates the landscape of heart disease thinking and practice at the time, which centered on the well-established diet-heart hypothesis.Read MoreHold the Eggs and Butter

The timer did not start!! I must have hit the button 2x (start/stop) at the very beginning. I didn't notice this until I was halfway through the 2nd run, and there was no way I was about to do another 50 pull-ups. So the time is based on the TV: started at 8:34 and ended at 9:05.
First wod since almost a year of bodybuilding 24:44
Subbed 3000m on assault bike for row
else as rx
I’m toast from yesterday..
Not easy when you do it alone, you want to stop before the end. I should find a partner, in Brest (FR). Good luck to everybody !!
I get asked regularly “how many eggs are safe for my child to eat?” It’s no surprise based on the current medical recommendations (which clearly need to be revised).
Here’s a current handout for parents which misinforms them on low fat dairy and restriction on eggs. No wonder people are confused.
The AAP and AHA recommend that children over 2 years of age (opt 1 year of age) have nonfat or low-fat milk.
This recommendation has always been embarrassing to me. In fact, I inform all my patients (at their 2 year visit) of the current recommendations, and why they don’t make any sense at all. Why they are just wrong. Fats are essential for children. Their developing brains need fat. Fats are needed for hormones. I recommend NOT switching to low fat milk and low fat yogurt. Limit the sugar and processed foods, not the healthy fats. Eat eggs. And butter.
I have a question about the rowing machine. I keep around 30 spm, but my speed is always low. the fastest I can make is 3min/500m, and that is going at top lungs.
I normally have the damper at high numbers (9-10), because I notice that going lower makes my time even worse.
M37, 76kg. Stamina not so bad, I can run 5k in 22mins.
I just finished as RX (barely) with the horrible time of 46mins, out of which 20 mins were on the rowing machine (6:15, 6:30 & 6:50).
Check these videos out.
I had the exact same problem. But I think you have to look at a few videos of Olympic rowers explaing technique and try it for a few days slowly, concentrating on the technique. After that you'll smash 38spm at 6 Damper easy.
Check the drag factor. If the rower is very dirty it's like rowing with the damper on 1 even though you have it set on 10 and you won't be able to get any speed. A simple cleaning may be all that's needed. https://www.concept2.com/service/monitors/pm5/how-to-use/viewing-drag-factor
Rowing: I will have most of my athletes complete the entire distance on each row effort. In some cases, I will use time guidelines to assess when reducing distance may be beneficial. For example, if I have an athlete that is new or is likely to row the initial 1,000 meters in over 5:00, I will consider reducing the distance of each row effort or have them row for a set duration on each effort.
Strict Pull-ups: I consider the volume of this movement to be relatively high and made more difficult when following a 1,000-m row. For athletes that can perform strict pull-ups, but the volume of 50 reps is too high, I will reduce the reps to help maintain consistency and range of motion. Another option is to set a time duration to complete pull-ups. For example, I can set a 5 minute timeframe for athletes to attempt to complete the 50 reps. For athletes that cannot perform strict pull-ups, I will modify the movement to a band-assisted variation today. The prescription of this movement modification is a change-up from the previous two pull-up workouts. In rare instances, where band assistance does not allow the athlete to achieve full range of motion, I will modify the movement to a banded lat pulldown.
Push-ups: I consider the volume of this movement to be relatively high. For athletes that can perform push-ups, but the volume is too high, I will likely have them reduce the reps to help maintain consistency or give a 5-minute timeframe to attempt to complete the 100 reps. For athletes that cannot perform push-ups, I will have them perform push-ups with a band attached to a pull-up bar and the looped just above the hips or perform push-ups from the knees today.
Air Squat: I will have nearly all of my athletes perform this exercise as prescribed. I will reduce reps for athletes where the volume is too demanding and still focus on achieving the best mechanics possible through a large range of motion. In some special situations, I may reduce the range of motion or squat to a target to keep mechanics sound.
Workout Modification: I will likely need to modify this workout in my group classes due to rower availability. A partner variation will be my first option, performed as follows:
Partner 1 completes a 1,000-m row while partner 2 performs as many strict pull-ups as possible. When the row is finished the partners switch movements. Athletes will continue in the same fashion for the push-ups and the air squats. I will advise athletes to not exceed the prescribed rep range on any of the gymnastics elements.
This is a chipper with no place to hide. Your stamina in the gymnastics movements will be greatly challenged. That is where you should focus your effort today. Set yourself properly so that you can keep the movement strict and controlled, and so that you can keep moving. This means you will need to moderate your effort on the rower. The difference between a 3:40 1K row and 4:00 1K row, is just 20 seconds, but the first will destroy you and the second one won't. Those 20 seconds will be lost in the subsequent pull ups immediately, slowing down the gymnastics too much. Today let's really prioritize the stamina aspect of the gymnastics movements, push it there. One line of thought is to break up your sets more conservatively than you think you should, and to keep yourself accountable to a very short rest time. Athletes modifying movements should aim to preserve a large volume of reps. We want a strict chipper with 3000 meters of rowing thrown in the mix. Chip, chip, chip away!
50 strict banded pull-ups
50 rack push-ups
50 plate push-ups
40 box pull-ups
80 box push-ups
This article points out that thirty-five years ago most physicians were not comfortable with preventative medicine, leaving the individual to make up their own minds about a change in diet. Hmm, seems not much has changed.
took me 34:34. I had to do the pull-ups in sets of 3 and 2. I used the cage (all the alternate grips) rotating through each one. I did the pushups in 25/25 then sets of 10 until completion. I did all 150 body squats in 1 set. Wow...brutal.
50 strict pull-ups after 9 legless rope climbs the day before? That’s gonna be rough.
Scaled version for us dinosaurs? 58 yo
You could scale the workout in half, 500m row, 25 pull ups, 50 push ups and 75 squats. You could sub band pull ups, kipping pull ups or ring rows for the pull ups, incline push ups for the push ups and bar assisted squats for the squats. You could change the rep scheme for the pull ups to sets of 5, the push ups to sets of 10 and the squats to sets of 15 and do one 500 or 1000 meter row before and after the pull ups, push ups and squats.
It really depends how long you have been working out, what workouts you have been doing prior and the duration and intensity of your workouts.
Hey Bruce, Nate has some good thoughts here. I put some scaling suggestions a few posts down if you are looking for some other options.
Well, that’s gonna take awhile on my 58 yo bones
Globo scale: As Rxed. Hand Release Pushups and prisoner squats (no swinging of the arms to assist the squat). If no rower, run 800 meters per row (track, outside or treadmill with slight incline). For an additional challenge use,the new Army Combat Fitness Test standards for the pushups.
800m run 31,24"
What is an assault bike equivalent for the row?
Hey Mike the 5000m row sub was 300 cals on the AB so I'd say 60 cals
Hi Mike, I like the suggestion from Stacey. If you are looking to keep the counting as meters, I usually have men do 3x the distance on the assault bike and the women do 2.5x the distance. So 3000m/2500m per 1,000m effort today is what I might recommend.
Thanks. I subbed 3000m on AB for row, which equaled
47/44/44 cal. Thought about the 60 cal, but the 3000m was good:)
Champions Club Scaling Notes
This is Just A Workout if I’ve ever seen one. And if I remember correctly, the version of this came up early in January without the rowing. Just come out of it alive, I say.
I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: I can finish the pull-ups and push-ups in sets of 5, and have a half hour to devote to a workout
Strength — slow squats and push-ups down, and decrease the rowing distance into more of a sprint
Stamina — I mean, if this really isn’t enough for you, you could do all 3k of the row last
Endurance — 5 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats, 100m on the row. Amrap in 20 minutes or so
Flexibility — lower on squats, ring/deficit push-ups.
Coordination — kipping pull-ups, focus on the fall back of the row
Accuracy — keep rowing splits even, hit same ROM spot for pull-up, push-up, squat
Agility — the Cindy-style endurance scale above would be good for agility also
Balance — slow squats, push-ups on rings, running instead of rowing focusing on a fall
GROUP VERSION: 400-800m run, split up pull-ups and push-ups however strategized (Ricky Reps on pull-ups), and squats done as rx’d before last run
L-sit — because Coach says
Jump rope — always and running prep
[insert thing you suck at]
[insert thing you suck at]
GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 6. Tough but hard to hit at a really high intensity unless scaled
