  6. If I'm being honest, I'm prob going to do pull-downs today. 

  7. Take those v-ups at a super slow speed. 

  8. If your tailbone says "no" to V-ups, go ahead and switch for situps on a stability ball

  9. You are not on the clock. Do not perform this workout for time.

  10. Each round is one exercise after the other. These are not straight sets today.
