12/13/10 - Push/Pulls

5 rounds of:

Max rep bench press
Max rep pullup

source: jg
time: 20 minutes
works: shoulders, back, pecs
difficulty: 5
my effort: 6

I chose this classic push-pull workout for a couple of reasons. First, it's very low cardio. After a grueling 45 minutes of non-stop work yesterday, I wanted to back off the cardio. Second, I was curious to see where my pullups stood.

I chose to use 180lbs for the bench press because

a) yesterday's workout incorporated 110 pushups
b) I haven't worked on a flat bench press for over a year
c) my left shoulder doesn't always agree with the press movement

It was a decent workout, but I definately felt yesterday's burpees and shoulder presses leaving me quite a bit short of reps on some sets. I stuck with regular dead-hang pullups, as opposed to kipping.

My splits were:

11/30 (push/pull)
