Simple yet very challenging:
Bodyweight Bench/Push-up Countdown
10 reps BW Bench Press (175lbs)
9 reps BW Bench Press
… Down to 1 rep each.
Total Time: 9:58
** Dropped the bench press to 155 starting on the round of 6 reps so that I would be able to get through this in 10 min.

Yesterday a fellow trainer said he tried the following workout: deadlift (60% of your max) as many reps as possible (AMRAP) in 12 minutes. He said I should try it so today I did…
AMRAP 60% Deadlift in 12 minutes
112 rep at 225 lbs.
My max deadlift is about 375 so 225 was just right.
Good workout, time to walk it off…
Still needed some recovery from Friday’s heavy push workout so I decided to forego the Power Clean day and do some lower body work. Didn’t plan anything, just made it up as I went. Turned out to be just what I needed.
