-Upper body focused day, I think I'm going to run it like that Eric Cressey article, Full body/upper/lower/full body. My exercises will be different since I'm limited in terms of equipment but that will be the gist of the workout. Right now I'll be hitting the park/playground when I need to do pullups. Good session overall.
-pushups - I was surprised on how hard the pullups were but I guess the extra ROM and having Connor on my back (41 pounds). I recall hearing that a pushup is like doing 70% of your BW right? so I'm weak! that's like 175 pound total? I know I can do more than 175 for flat? Hm....
-Kroc Rows - today these felt flat! I usually hit 20+ per arm but today I was hurting at 20.
-KB band crush curl - Doing these crush grip style was way harder than regular style where I hold it by the horns. Geez!
