Here is an example of what I have been doing:
last M - heavy squat day - 5 minutes of kb swings
last T - heavy bench/row - nothing had to run out of the gym
last W- rest
last Th - heavy deadlift - 10 minutes of buellers and farmers walk
last Fr - heavy chins/overhead pressing - run/row
sat - rest
M - heavy squat day - I threw in tabata rows
T - heavy bench/row day - I did 1/4 Angie so I'd end up around 10 minutes
W- rest - only thing I did was some stretching
Th - heavy deadlifts - I did 1/2 Jackie (from Coach Ruts website)
Fr -Heavy chins and overhead press - Running/rowing
I'll see how I feel this weekend but at the least I was planning on doing mobility exercises from Super Joints and some foam rolling and I might join the CF DC crew for a workout Sunday.
I just started these same workouts this week. How are they working out for you, Alan?
Also, I see the final supersets of each workout as sort of a GPP thing. No rest between exercises and minimal rest between sets using single-limb and body weight movements. Got me huffing and puffing. I also add in the barbell complexes that Dan John and Steve Shafley have talked about lately as part of my warm-up.
BTW, I reviewed the MM DVD on that thread, per your request.
