    Pull-up Program
    Pick a number of repetitions for all 9 sets:
    5 Reps while wearing a 20 lb backpack.
    3 Sets of Pull-ups
    3 Sets of Close-Grip Pull-ups
    3 Sets of Wide Grip Pull-ups
    *Rest 60 Seconds between sets.

    Note whether you were able to
    complete all sets: Yes

    Push Program
    Pick a number of repetitions for all 9 sets:
    5 Reps while wearing a 20 lb backpack.
    9 sets of Ring Dips
    *Rest 60 Seconds between sets.

    Note whether you were able to
    complete all sets: Yes

    Conditioning: Uphill Treadmill Walk
    12% Incline, Wearing a 20 lb Backpack
    1.5 Miles, 30:00, 384 Calories, 950’ Elevation Gain

    Comments: In the midst of another crazy week here. I am seriously thanking God that I just slept 8 hours two nights in a row with all of this stress. Going to try and do the pull-up and push program to start things out. Then I will walk on the treadmill for a while. I am legit sore from the last two sessions too.

    Pull-up Program: I was going to pick reps of 8 but since that is the number of reps I’m doing on my lifting this week I decided to wear a weighted backpack and do less reps. This was tough. I just barely got my sets.

    Push Program: Got through these. That was also tough.

    Conditioning: I used an online calculator and added 20 lbs to my body weight (for the ruck sack) and estimated that I burned an extra 40 calories in 1.5 miles at 12% incline. I’ll take it.

    Have a nice day folks!

    Accessory
    4 Rounds:
    10 SLDL, 115 lb
    8 Hack Squats, 115 lb
    8 Rows, 115 lb
    12 Push-ups on the barbell

    Time: 9:50

    Pull-up Program
    Pick a number of repetitions for all sets: 8
    Complete the following, repeating as long as you are able.
    EMOM
    1 Set of Wide-Grip Pull-ups
    1 Set of Pull-ups
    1 Set of Close-Grip Pull-ups

    Note where you failed: 12 Rounds + 6 Reps = 102

    Comments: Just getting some work in this morning. Probably should be doing a long metcon but decided to just do some accessory work and the pull-up program. I will plan to do the push program tomorrow or Saturday.

    Accessory: Tough little combination of movements. Was definitely sweating by the end of that.

    Pull-up Program: My arms are smoked from all of this extra volume this week. That’s fine though. They are looking bigger. I was happy to get almost 100 total reps in sets of 8 and then a few more. I think my grip was pretty smoked already from the accessory work. Good stuff…

    Have a good day folks!

    I like the looks of the pull up program but back to back days would definitely smoke my biceps as well.

    Hopefully the stress subsides soon Trent.

    How frequently do you do these? I'm afraid my elbows would start "barking" at me if I did that too often.

    Keep up the great work!

    Hi Payton! I normally don't do the Pull-up Program as it bothers my lat muscle. I've plugged it in for this week and the next two weeks leading up to vacation as I am an full swing on the diet and usually that makes my arms get puny. Instead of doing all pull-ups I will switch exercises each week. Next week I might do rows, then something else, etc. Just trying to give the arms a boost while I trim some pounds... Here it is if you're interested:

    Day 1:
    5 Rounds of Pull-ups for Max Reps:
    *Rest 90 Seconds between sets.
    Round 1:
    Round 2:
    Round 3:
    Round 4:
    Round 5:

    Day 2:
    Pull-up Pyramid
    Start by doing one pull-up and then
    add a repetition after resting 10 seconds.
    Continue as long as you are able.


    Then rest 90 seconds and complete
    one set for Max Reps:

    Day 3:
    Pick a number of repetitions for all
    9 sets.
    3 Sets of Pull-ups
    3 Sets of Close-Grip Pull-ups
    3 Sets of Wide Grip Pull-ups
    *Rest 60 Seconds between sets.

    Note whether you were able to
    complete all sets:

    Day 4:
    Use the same number of repitions
    from the previous day.
    3 Sets of Pull-ups
    3 Sets of Close-Grip Pull-ups
    3 Sets of Wide Grip Pull-ups
    *Rest 60 Seconds between sets.

    If you are able to complete all sets,
    start over again and continue as
    long as you are able.
    Note where you failed:

    Day 5:
    Repeat which ever day was the most
    difficult from the week.


    *** I usually do all of my sets as EMOM and usually skip the 5th day. For these three weeks, I'm doing a push exercise using the same format.

    Comments: Time to get the testosterone flowing out here on Friday morning.

    Push Program: Ran out of time here after 25 minutes. Felt like I could have kept going all morning.

    Metcon: This wasn’t too bad. I wish I could have done the running, as I had hoped to originally. 1600m, 800m, 400m. My foot has been a little sore and swollen so I decided to go with the uphill treadmill walk. Still sweating and the blood is flowing.

    Alright, happy Friday folks!

    Great work lately Trent. I love the looks of your pullup and push programs. That's some creative programming!

    Sorry to hear your foot is sore and swollen. Skipping the running sounds wise for today. Hopefully that heals back up quickly. It seems like you're generally on a good trajectory with it so hopefully that continues.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    Nice workout Trent!

    200 ring dips. Holy Faak. Wow man. That is impressive!

    I will echo Greg in here to say hopefully the swelling goes down quickly on your foot.

    Have a great weekend Trent.

    Thanks so much Greg. I didn't come up with the pull-up program. I got it from the interwebs... If I programmed it, it would be similar but probably more painful. Thanks on the foot as well. I'm not sure what I did other than sprinting around the baseball field last weekend and start putting the pedal to the metal this week... Hopefully it will get better.

    Thanks Shane. I was going to stop at 20 rounds and my wife came out to talk to me about something so I kept doing sets while she talked. Thanks on the foot. Hopefully it gets better.

    Comments: A rare Sunday training session today. I didn’t have much of a choice as I have to travel Monday and Tuesday.

    Hex Deads: Lower back is barking pretty bad. It has been since doing those weighted back extensions last week. Still went pretty heavy on these. I don’t recall the last time I did over 300 lb on anything.

    Bench: Felt strong on these. Probably had another rep or two at 225 but decided not to risk it.

    Landmines: Same here. Basically ran out of plates or I would have kept going. LOL!

    Pull: Didn’t allow rest pauses and my arms were already smoked before this. Decent showing.

    Accessory: Didn’t look that hard but it was…

    Intervals/Sprints: Was pretty much wiped out by the time I got to these. I probably looked completely miserable on the treadmill. Ha ha…

    Alright, have a good rest of the day folks!

    Nice work on that pull up program, glad to see you are moving along on that. There is no way I could deal with that kind of volume....so I will leave it to you . I see you are still battling with that foot, you are tougher with me, I would have packed it in by now. Good strong work all around!!

    Thanks for stopping in CPW. Yeah, the volume is through the roof right now but it is only a 3 week cycle so it's doable. Thanks on the foot. Your approach is smarter. I'm just stubborn.

    Comments: Not much sleep last night. That seems to be the norm right now for Sunday nights. Hopefully that will get better soon. Going for it anyway out here this morning.

    Pull Pyramid: This is more of a sprint. Nothing crazy. About one minute for the first part.

    Push Pyramid: Same here.

    Box Squat: These felt rough at first but I loosened up as time went on. I was honestly shocked to get a double at 265 and felt that I had a single there at 275 or maybe 285. Good stuff!

    OHP: Felt pretty weak on these. Happy to get a single at 135 though.

    Weighted PU: These felt strong. Wish I had time to go for some really heavy singles.

    Accessory: This normally wouldn’t have been bad but I am smoked at this point today so it was tough.

    Metcon: Not much to it. Got it done.

    Alright, time to go hop on a plane to Atlanta. Have a good day folks!

    Deadlift session was strong Trent! Solid benching as well.

    Moving some heavy weights in here Trent! Those box squat numbers are impressive!

    That was 2 impressive back to back workouts.

    I would like to catch up with you while you are in town but traffic to the city from my house would be 2 hours plus both ways. Tough to do on a work night.

    Maybe some other time.

    Thanks on the lifting Shane. As far as catching up, we walked over to a "tavern" in Buckhead last night where we proceeded to drink too many beers (I don't get out much anymore so it was somewhat festive ). Then we wobbled back to the hotel. That's about all the free time I'll have on this trip. I'm not sure what the scope of facade repairs will be or what our role will be in overseeing those repairs, but if I have to come back down here for that I'll let you know. I hear you on the traffic. It is terrible here and I honestly don't know how people do it...

    Conditioning: Elliptical
    4.25 Miles, 40:00, 510 Calories

    Comments: I woke up at 4:00AM to someone making noise out in the hallway of the hotel (don’t miss the hotel life btw). Plus my mind is always racing on a day like this when I have a massive undertaking of something I don’t really know how to do. I usually wake up way too early with every little detail going through my head. It’s a blessing and a curse… Anyway, I might to hit the elliptical trainer for a while to burn some calories. I logged 14,000 steps yesterday for about 6.3 miles, so that helps with the calorie burn.

    Elliptical: Nice little calorie dump. Nothing special to note.

    Alright, Shane, if you drive by the Atlanta Plaza this morning look for us on the swing stage. Have a good one folks!

    Ha ha, thanks Shane. I was not a fan of the way they set that swing stage up. It rocked back and forth like a canoe and the inside rail was only knee high. To be honest, I almost pissed my pants up there and was overjoyed to be back down when it was over.

    4 Rounds:

    Time: 7:07

    Conditioning: Run/Jog, Outdoor, Paved
    2 Miles, 17:52, 8:55 Pace, 251 Calories

    Comments: Feels like Fall out here at 63 degrees! Woke up earlier than I would have liked with my mind racing, so I just came out here to get some Push/Pull work and a little bit of accessory work in.

    Push: These got hard around the seventh round but I managed to finish.

    Pull: Same.

    Accessory: Lower back is still sore so I’m leaving out a deadlift accessory lift. Just going for some BBB style squats and core work. Got it done.

    Run/Jog: Had some extra time (the joys of waking up way to early… ) so I decided to go for a run. It rained most of the night so the ground was wet and it was humid. Still a beautiful morning with the cooler weather. No foot pain to speak of and finally broke a nine minute mile pace.

    Alright, have a good day folks!

    Damn Trent, somehow I missed a bunch of workouts in here. It looks like you've been killing it.

    Great looking workout today man. That accessory circuit looks like a good one.

    I'm glad to hear you were pain free in the foot and got a good run in today. Sometimes when I have crappy sleep I have my best runs and workouts. It's funny how hat works.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    Thanks CPW! Yep, the pull and push program that I'm doing have a lot of that type of work. Thanks on the foot too! I will try to get over to your journal this weekend and see how you're doing!

    Great looking workout today man. That accessory circuit looks like a good one.

    I'm glad to hear you were pain free in the foot and got a good run in today. Sometimes when I have crappy sleep I have my best runs and workouts. It's funny how hat works.
    Thanks Greg. It's the final push before vacation so I'm going all out. It's funny what you mention about a lack of sleep and good workouts. I think that works well for a day or two but not for weeks on end like I've been doing lately...

    Conditioning: Metcon
    4 rounds for time of:
    21 bench presses, 135 lb
    15 pull-ups
    400-m run

    Post time: 23:45

    Comments: Man, it seems like I am momentarily trapped at waking up early. Every morning I wake up between 4 and 5:00AM and try to go back to sleep with no success. I’ve got to get this problem figured out because I’m only getting about 6 hours of sleep most nights right now. Going to do some push and pull, followed by a metcon.

    Push: Did 3 rounds at 95 and wasn’t going to be able to continue so I dropped the weight to 85, did one round, then dropped to 75 as I wanted to get at least 8-10 rounds.

    Pull: Could have gotten more if I had allowed rest pauses but no rest pauses are allowed in this stuff.

    Metcon: Arms are destroyed so this ought to be interesting…
    After: Yep, the bench and pull-ups slowed me down a lot on this. My sets actually improved during the course of the metcon though as the running gave me time to recover. Running was on the treadmill at 6.5 mph pace. Got through it.

    Alright, might try to run tomorrow morning. Have a good Friday!
