So, it’s Cinco de Mayo, which means… somebody needs to chug a fifth of Hellman’s, or something (I kid, I kid; I just don’t know much about the Battle of Pueblo other than it was fought today).
More germane to the folks apt to be reading this is the fact that it’s the first Tuesday of the month, which means that an elite corps a bunch of my co-workers and I engage in modest amounts of testosterone poisoning to see how much our gym time has paid off since the previous session. Max reps for pull-ups and pushups, two minutes for situps and squats.
We had a few new faces join us this time around, and a couple more guys who couldn’t make it to today’s event will be putting in their reps come lunchtime Thursday, so I’ll be updating this again when that happens.
Now, on to the chart.
|5/5/09||Pull-Ups||Situps||Pushups||Squats||Bodyweight||Total Reps||Total Volume|
|C (no T) G||7||38||40||46/66||157.0||131/151||23,707|
Good stuff today, and only two individual events had any loss of ground (my & Mr. W’s pull-ups); otherwise, everyone maintained, or improved by margins from a single rep to 66%.
A note about the squats – last month, we only did a one-minute set, and this time, we did a two-minute one, so that’s why the split is there.
My incredibly crappy camera-phone footage of some of the proceedings.
