Paul - I agree that the pulldown isn't a great exercise. Chins are better for a number of reasons. But bench and shoulder press are excellent developers of the shoulder girdle musculature. I was...

Jacks was a legend! I can't use his squat thrust technique because feet need to hop over a 1-foot distance marked out with strips of tape. If the feet touch between the tape strips, the rep doesn't...

Yeah, the form for the squat thrusts is a bit different from a burpee. You don't stand after each one, so you basically start in push-up position, hop your feet forward 1 foot, and then hop them...

Kelly - wow, those are great p4p numbers. A triple bodyweight DL is a (very) long-term goal of mine. Fiona - good work, especially on the push ups.

I chose the 5000m row, since I've been wanting to get my times down. And also since none of the other choices hurt me as much. I haven't done many 5000's, but today I set a PR of 19:29. I was...

I got 5 rounds in the 20 min with about 30 seconds to spare. The push-presses were by far the most challenging part of the workout. In my final half-tabata, I was only getting 7 or 8 push-presses...
