midday in gym

1000m row warmup
bodyweight circuit (pullup,dip,pushup,ir with straps, kb clean,kb deadlift)

rest between ex was walking time; rest between sets was 2-3 m

Christmas wine arrived yesterday. Tested (a lot) of it last night. Sweating out the alcohol. not an easy workout.

did 1 strap (trx, but am not into branded products too much) dip before my right arm couldn't maintain control and somehow the strap ended up behind my back with my arm attached to it. i think i'm going to like strap dips.
