Daily Extras - 

With a continuously running clock:

On the first min complete 20 tick tocks R 25/35
On the second min complete 20 tick tocks L 25/35

On the third min add 5 more to the R 2535
On the fourth min add 5 more to the L 25/25

Continue this pattern by adding 5 reps to each side every other minute for as long as you are able. 
At the point where you fail (you won't really), or when you are no longer to complete all the reps within the minute (make them right) - you are done.

Be sure to complete the same amount of reps on both sides.

Thoughts on tick tocks


Workout Notes:

  • Be super strict with your :30s rests.
     
  • You may go in any order.
     
  • If you know you cannot string, at least, 3 sets of reps together, scale from the beginning. For example, if you know you don't have 15 chair dips done with good form, begin the workout doing chair dips with feet under you, instead of extended. 
     
  • Don't have a BB? Cool, DBs will work fine. BBs make strict presses easier. To compensate, use 20/30 ea.
     
  • Chair dips are only Rx if legs are straight.
     
  • The set is over once you stop in a rested position (i.e. seated during chair dips) . Note: halting in an active position (arms/legs extended, full weight on still hands during chair dips) is not counted as a stop.
