The Daily Rebel – Front Squats, Push Press, and grit!

So the up shot of having the worst workout imaginable yesterday is that todays workout had to be better!

The lesson of this is this - Sometimes you need to just say f*$#k it and decide to be a bear!

Needless to say that it was, but I was doing front squats, so how could I not have a great time right…? Squatting whimsey aside, this was a pretty good session considering I was tired and had to really dig deep to get half as far as I did – 130 x 3 as a top set.

Here was the workout:

A1) FRONT SQUAT – 1 X 3RM / 4 X 3 @80%

B1) PUSH PRESS – 1 x 1RM / 6 x 1 @80%

C1) STRICT PRESS – 3 X 5 + STRIP SET ON THE FINAL SET DOWN TO THE BAR

E1) PULL UPS – MAX REPS

E2) DIPS – MAX REPS

More than anything else, I knew that this was not going to be a world beater of a workout, but it gave my a chance to get over the mental drain of yesterdays non-event of a workout and get back under some heavy load.

That’s all for today Rebels, but never fear I shall be back tomorrow with a trouser splitting, t-shirt ripping accessory day workout. LETS GET JACKED AND TAN!!!!!

Train Strong.

Live Strong.

Be Strong.
