What are you feelings about subbing weighted rope climbs for pull-ups? For instance, instead of 3 sets at max reps we could do three L-straddle climbs @ max weight? While this might not apply for this "rest week", what about other days?
Greg Everett 2007-12-18
I think that's fine some of the time - but rope climbing won't open the shoulder well--especially L climbs--so that eliminates the shoulder-health component, one of the big reasons I program pull-ups in so regularly.

1.Back Squats 185lb - 3 sets of 3

2.Sn Shrug 185, 185, 205 - 3 sets of 3

3.Rack Jerks* 155 - 5 sets of 1

4.Chin-ups (some kipping) 15, 11, 10 - grip a little fried from snatch grip shrugs

*discovered that the cause of a past shoulder/bicep injury may have been from letting my elbows drift inward in the rack position. I'm now avoiding the mistake.

I had way to much fun in the form of Don Julio yesterday so my 5:30 AM workout felt a little less than fabulous. Thank God Don Julio is Paleo!

Any suggestions on how I should cram M, T, W, F and Sa into W, Th and Fr?

I did a mixture of last Fridays and Saturdays workout yesterday.

I also won't be able to lift next week, so I figured I didn't need to go light this week.
