  5. Also, think about doing pull-downs. 
  6. Take those v-ups at a super slow speed. 
  7. You are not on the clock. Do not perform this workout for time.
  8. Do the extras today!
  9. Rounds = from the OH, straight over to the fr squat, to the chins, to the Vs. This workout is not done in supersets nor straight sets.

Musings:

Do You Sauna? You Should. 

Those who sauna regularly (2-3x/wk) have 27% less chance of dying of cardiovascular disease! This is compared to those who sauna just 1x/wk. 

Apparently, this has to do with expanding and contracting blood vessels caused by full-body heating and cooling. Those expanding and contracting blood vessels are also thought to help increase brain function and decr. sexual dysfunction. 

Sessions have to last 10-20 mins each, but you have to build up to it.

Last week I had a conversation with a guy. A very (almost) judgmental conversation where he was very accusingly asking me "where's the stretching in your programming?" He goes, "I've done more than a handful of workouts and you've never stretched us once."
