Well, I only threw up twice today. Usually its 4 to 5 times when doing ATG squats. Didn’t pass out either. Usually I get a good head rush on the last 2 sets of my 6x6 squat workout.
By the time I get to the Bench Press, i’m running out of flem. I’m benching with complete dry mouth now, cause God knows if I take one sip of water, I’ll be sure to spew it right back up on about the 5th or 6th rep. After 6x6 bench pressing in the desert, we’re off to the deadlift.
Now were cooking. My legs are stiff, my back is pumped full of blood. I feel like a bloated, blistered, drained camel, without a hump full of water, and another 100 miles to the oasis. Well, I better do those 36 deadlifts before I dry up and turn into coyote jerky. After 6x6 grueling sets of deads, I can finally take a dip in the oasis and soak it up like a sponge.
Thats what Mr. Push ups gets to do on mondays. I’m a strong advocate of bodyweight exercises fellas, even weighted bodyweight exercises. But never lose sight of the basics. I would never leave those 3 exercises out of my program no matter what. I could never get the benefits out of the push ups that i do without my basic strength exercises as my base.
If you chose to do only one basic exercise. Please get your ass in the grass with me and do a full squat til you throw up or pass out.
