During the summer months I am usually free all weekdays to workout but will miss quite a few Saturdays. Should I do the regular weekly days as they come up and leave the Saturdays off, or should I substitute a typical Saturday max day once during the week?

Pretty brutal training session today...I'm not sure why but this one was particularly hard

Erik - You can try doing 5 days in a row and taking sat/sun off, but it may be pretty rough. I would either try that (i.e. move Sat to Fri), or replace Tues with Wed, rest Wed, do Thu, so Sat on Fri.

I am new to the website and have started to do some of the workouts. I noticed that the last 2 + tomorrow's workout includes allot of the same body parts involved. This is different than what I am used to can anyone explain the benefits. Do your muscles have time to recoop? Does everyone have a difficult time repeating movements day after day or does this muscle fatigue wear off after time once you have started to get more accustom to the workouts? Before anyone reply's I understand that they are supposed to be tough and your muscles will get fatigued but I had a hard time doing any shoulder movements today and I noticed clean pulls on the menu tomorrow. Sorry just newby questions.

I think Jolie is the only person to place in the top 10 all 3 years, not just the only woman. Congratulations

If you were to write this workout today, would you specify something other than lipping pull-ups in the follow-on piece? If so, what would that be?

Greg Everett 2014-09-09
Michael K -

Probably not, assuming they were not done as butterfly kips. Strict pull-ups would be fine.
