Complete couplets in any order. Complete all sets of couplet with no rest before moving to the next.

4 sets of: 

10 BB biceps curls AHAP 
75 rope jumps

4 sets of:

12 DB bent rows AHAP
75 rope jumps

4 sets of:

8 front squats (use cleanable weight)
75 rope jumps

Post weights used to comments.
 


Daily Extras - 4 rounds of:

15 burpees
15 pushups (strict)
15 v-ups

Try not to rest at all. (hehe. Good luck with that.)


Workout Notes:

  • The rests are built into the workout even though it says "no rest." 
  • Move quickly between couplets. 
  • Use DBs for the bent rows. I know the demo uses a BB. It's the same movement. Just stand a little more upright and use DBs for the weight. You may also use KBs.
  • For the ONE person who was confused, "cleanable" just means, don't take it from a rack. 

I never believed in that whole (read in a whiny voice) "Humans only use 10% of our brains" thing. 

It's is pure silliness. The following vid from discovery does a pretty good job of explaining why. 

More reasons I don't believe this:

  1. The alleged originators of this theory put it forward in the 1890s. Are we really giving credence to a theory "discovered" during a time when bloodletting was still a thing? Before antibiotics? Before vaccinations?
  2. Dale Carnegie (the guy who made this theory famous) was a self-help salesman. Seems to me like he had a dog in this hunt.
  3. If I'm only using 10% of my brain why did it get so tired after chemistry tests? My muscles don't get that tired after using 10% of them. My skin doesn't burn after being exposed to only 10% sunshine. 
  4. If I know anything about the human body it's this: if you don't use it, you LOSE it. 
  5. How is it that no other part of my body only uses 10% of it's capacity? I don't use only 10% of my eyeballs. I don't use only 10% of my bones. If I do only use 10% then I generally become very ill (see reason #4).
  6. It's insulting to me to imagine that the entire population of earth, every human that has ever lived, has only ever used 10% of his/her brain function (Jesus? Mohammed? Tesla? Hawking?)
  7. If someone ever did figure out how to use their entire brain, how is it that they still never became intelligent enough to teach the rest of us to tap into the other 90% of our own?
