Even though I don’t have a 9 to 5 job per say I do try to make sure I keep a schedule and routine.  That means getting up early(ish) to get in my Spanish study before I head to the gym to start work at 9am. Then it’s crazy busy with GMB stuff until I do my training session. Speaking of which, here’s today’s session.

Today’s Theme -> All The Pulls

Prep – warm-up stuff for pulling

Practice – Front and Back Levers

Started with single reps of front lever holds and once I had enough of those did some back levers.


  • One Arm Chins – singles while holding on to exercise band for assistance
  • 75kg single rep chin-up – did as many single reps as I could with break between
  • Wide grip pull-ups – 5 reps x rounds
  • Commando alternating chins with focus on outside arm pull until burned out
  • Ring rows – both hands holding single ring

Finished with 20 minutes of rope skipping. My son joined in with me.

    1. Do it! They are tons of fun and one thing I like doing is to bring more focus to the hand closest my head while relaxing grip a little with hand further away. Then change sides each rep. Makes them much harder.

    1. Really depends on skill and the day. In the case of today’s session it was a little longer because I was working both front and back levers and felt like doing more sets of the conditioning stuff. I give myself a long-ish break in between each single attempt, anywhere between 1 to 3 minutes depending on the level of the move. All in all I would say today’s strength portion of the session was 45 or so. Again, it depends and sometimes it could be less or more.
