Eel Flex II - 20 reps DVR style
Giraffe flex 40 reps
Horseflex III - Isometric flexing style - in other words, holding the flex for up to ten seconds - 10 reps
Horseflex I - 20 reps, plently of tension

10 minutes with one minute rest

Atlas III pushups - 45 - wide grip
Atlas situps - 75
Tiger Bend squats - 200
Atlas situps - 75
Atlas III pushups 1X35, 1X15 - elbows in
Milo 1X40, 1X30

23 minutes

* Note - my knees are O.K., but have been a little sore. Nothing major, but enough to tell me to be careful. Since I can swing down and brush the ground flatfooted, I thought I'd try it that way. It was actually a little harder doing 200 because the hamstrings and the lower back started wearing out first. I still prefer going onto the toes, even if I raise only a little.

I lost some time transitioning between exercises and moving my boxes. Nothing major, but every second counts.

Whew! what a week. Today was a fifteen hour day at work between a meeting I had to drive to and three hours spent re-designing my program brochure and rewriting my course descriptions. And it ain't over yet! The way John works, no wonder he created G.U.T.S.

Atlas pushups - 10 inch boxes - strict - 75 - got a little hard after 50
Atlas situps - 75
Wall sit - 5 minutes or at least until the U2 song Union Day stopped - practiced abdominal vaccums while in the sit
Liederman Leg Pressout - 10 reps each side
Atlas situps - 75
Atlas pushups - 55
Gorilla Flex IV - 30 each side
Lion Flex - 30 each side
Jaguar Flex - 15 each side with a body twist

25 minutes - but tough workout - I was shaking a little afterwards - not like I shake after G.U.T.S. however!

I worked out a lot over the weekend. Twenty-five minutes in the morning and twenty-five in the evening with a lot of hill walking.

Monday was a tough day at work; fifteen hours. When I got home I did this:

Atlas III T-pushups - 25
Atlas situps - 75
Tiger Bend Squats - 200
Atlas situps - 75
Atlas III T-pushups - 25
Milo - 2 sets each side

20 minutes

After a break I did 20 minutes of DVR's and DSR's with Lori

Atlas pushups - 75
Atlas situps - 75
10 inch box step ups - 12 minutes - I didn't count - just tried to do them as fast as possible.
Atlas situps -75
Atlas pushups - 75
Atlas bicep curl - 2X30

27 minutes

*Note - I lost time on the Atlas pushups. I slowed down after 50. Also, even though I do the situps at a fast clip for me, it still takes four minutes to do 75.

Afterwards Lori and I did 20 minutes of Isometric Powerflexing and CIC's.

Elevated T-pushups - 26 - on a 20 inch block
Atlas situps - 75
Tiger Bend Squats - 225
Atlas situps - 75
Elevated T-pushups - 20, 30 second rest, 1X10 - on a 20 inch block
Milo - 2 sets each side

21 minutes

After a break I did 20 minutes of DVR's and DSR's with Lori. She is looking really good since I swtiched her back to DVR/DSR/ISO again.

*Note - the Tiger Bend Squats are getting easier. I should have 300 by the end of November. I could do them now, but want to work into it without hammering my body too hard. After I get the 300, I'll move the Atlas situps up to 100. Will work on the pushups all along.

*Note - I am trying to think speed into the Atlas Situps. It still takes me nearly four minutes to do 75.

Atlas pushups - 9 inch boxes - 75
Atlas situps - 75
9 inch box step ups - 12 minutes - 325
Atlas situps -75
Atlas pushups - 9 inch boxes - 75
Atlas bicep curl - 2X30

27 minutes

10-15 minutes of Isometric Powerlfexing and CIC's with Lori

*Note - I am still trying to get my speed up on the stepups. I am doing them at a steady clip, but not fast enough.
*Note - this is the lighter workout. The one with the Tiger Bend Squats it the harder one.

Greg,

Awesome job man, keep it up. Quick question, what are elevated T pushups? Warrior Power T's or something else?

Jon

Hi Jon,

The elavated Tee pushups are warrior tee pushups with the feet higher than the shoulders at the start position. What I would call Atlas III's if I were using my pushup boxes. I consider the feet being elevated to the point to where the body is parallel to the ground, Atlas II's. However, what is in a name? What Joe Justice considers Atlas III's has a greater degree of elevation. My take is; if your body has the feet higher than the shoulders in the start position, it is Atlas III.

11/7/09

Tough workout today

20 Elevated Tee pushups - feet on an 18 inch box
75 Atlas situps
20 elevated Tee pushups
225 Tiger Bend Squats
15 elevated Tee pushups
75 Atlas situps
10 - Elevated Tee pushups
Milo 2 sets each side, 20 and 15 reps
23 minutes

Iso Power Belt - Three positions each
Neck - as a DSR
BNP
Row - as a DSR
Curl
Deadlift
Liederman leg pressout 2X6

10 minutes

*Note - Chasing the squats with inclned Tee pushups was hard. My legs were shaking and it was hard to stabilize.
*Note - Couldn't get much of an isometric contraction using the belt after G.U.T.S. Imagine that!
