Lets see how long I can keep this up.

69" height, 183 lbs recovering from partial tear of my right calf in Jan.

8 minutes on the C2 for warmup, last 2 minutes were tabata intervals
stretching, including samson stretch
2x10 pushups, 3x12 back ext
3X10 air squats with broomstick
myown creation:
5 pullups (failure)- 12 hanging leglifts- 5 dips (failure)
1-2 minutes rest
3 pullups (failure)- 12 hanging leg lifts -5 dips (failure)
1-2 minutes rest
3 pullups (failure)- 12 hanging leg lifts -3 dips (failure)
then another 8 hanging leg lifts.

rest 3 minutes

gravitron 50lbs
10 pullups 1 minute rest 10 dips
gravitron 70lbs
10 pullups 1 minute rest 10 dips

those pullups were to almost failure, dips were too easy

squats: still working on my form

then 15 minutes walking and running on treadmill, still working on my calf recovery
