Jebus--no cows, otherwise I'd consider it.

Immortal--that's the idea. That does sound challenging, and I'll consider it.

1) Cow Tip - 1 rep x big cow
2) BBQ - 1 rep x eat the cow

I don't see the problem. That has Mass Gain Program written all over it.

To be culturally consistent, I'd have to mumu the cow. That could work out well if I could tip it directly into the cooking pit.

Right, so you can either drag the cow, or push the cow, towards the cooking pit. Or dig one next to the cow. That's two exercises and a BBQ. I'm pretty sure upper/lower/BBQ is an acceptable split.

haha if you do the workout I posted, I cant wait to see the post on how you feet after wards :) The hardest part is when you get to set number 6 and you start realizing that even lowering the weight is hard. The best part is, in 8 reps, you do 8 pushups 8 deadlifts, 8 curls, and 8 presses. Thats a total of 40 total reps and in just 3 sets, your doing 24 of everything. THe pushup part is usually the easiest part. One of coaches back where I live actually uses 50 pound dumbells and he does two of everything at once. SO right away he goes to 2 pushups, 2 deads, 2 curls, and 2 presses for 10 reps. He does 5 sets of this for his monday workout then he gets out and rests until thursday for his power lifting day
lmao

I have no idea how I've missed that in my 40+ years, but after reading it, I tried it. It hits the mark alright. Only 2 things I can think of to improve it. Get a chin bar nearby. Start by performing left arm row, right arm row, then go through the sequence, and finish with a chin up.

My intention was to plan a workout, not a suicide.




OK, OK. I'll do this one day next week!


We'll call it "rebel row dead curl press chin". Or maybe we should just call it "The Immortal".

I hope so. It sounds good.

I've never had mumued beef, but I've heard of it. The pork sure is good, if done right, and I'd bet that beef would be, too.

Tim, it's also called a super burpee
The difference is that the deadlift is a jump up and the curl is a clean.

Mahler's Full Body Attack"is similar but doesn't have the press. That means you can use more weight.

Here's a video of the closest I've found to the "Immortal". It uses kettlebells instead of dumbbells but you can even do it with a barbell.

Im making a difference after all haha and its not suicide :( you control the weight and the reps but there are people that probably do want to go near suicide by using a lot of weight

Here's the plan:
Monday--

Jason's workout (stone clean, press, carry; tire drag)
Tire flipping

Tuesday or Wednesday--
Immortals with chins
DB Lat Raises
Bench with the boys

Thursday or Friday--
TRX Jacknifes
BO BB Rows

Saturday--
Zercher squats
DB Snatches

And whatever else comes to mind, or somebody else is doing.

I wrote the above post earlier today, but forgot to click the "Submit" button, so it was still sitting there when I got home.

It turns out that the rock that has been by the gym for years is too big for me to have used for this. It would have been a max effort one-time clean, if that. So Q and I went searching for a right-sized stone. Found a planter border with lots of stones, mostly just a little too small. Finally found one that seemed right, so I commandeered it. Maybe sometime I'll find a couple of smaller stones to fill the gap in the border.

Jason's suggestion was "3 sets to technical failure". I got bored at 8 reps, so I defined that as technical failure. It was probably a good number to use. So I did 3 sets of 8 clean and press (about 2 minutes rest between sets), carried the stone to the other end of a 24-pace course, hitched on to the tire, dragged it back to the other end. After a 3 or 4 minute rest I repeated the process for a total of 3 sets.

Then I flipped the tired the length of the course twice, about 14 flips each way. The tire I have is a bit heavy for dragging, and a bit light for flipping, but it's all I have at the moment, so it'll have to do. I feel like I've had a good workout.

have you try and clean and slamming a heavy bag? i like the stone idea, but you can pretty much do cleans with a good heavy punching bag and then slam the hell out of it. IT gets your explosion through the roof. its similar to a sand bag workout just without the slamming.

So, I was pretty sore after Monday's workout, so I rested Tuesday, and lifted today. This is the second workout that y'all helped me plan.

Today I started with the complex that Immortal suggested with the additions that TimD suggested, so it went pushup on a pair of dumbells (25s), "rebel rows" (one row with each hand), burpee, DB curls, DB presses, put the bells down and did one chinup. I did a couple just to try it out, and then 3 sets of 6. That pretty well wiped me, just to show you the state of my GPP at the moment.

Next I did lateral raises, thanks to NightFall's suggestion. It's not something I have done very often, and he was right, it hits the lateral head better than anything else, and it would probably be a good accessory lift for me to have in my routine often. I have shoulder issues, and if I lift directly to the side my bicipital tendon get's caught under the acromion, and then snaps out about half-way down the eccentric. I keep my arms in about 30 degrees of flexion, and keep my elbows flexed about 30 degrees, and it goes smoothly. 5 sets of 10 with 11-pound DBs was all I could do, but it was just right. One more rep would have been pretty sloppy.

Finally, although I originally said that my usual lifts were out for this week, I did some BB bench.

I'll probably take tomorrow off, because Q lifted yesterday, and tomorrow would make it 4 in a row for him.
