Thinking I’m going to be doing Meadows Rows and the Bulgarian Drop Set of Death the rest of the month. Both as finishers.

So the BSSDSOD is lets start with 40 for example would be 40 for 8 then 8 second iso hold, 30 for 8 with 8 second iso hold, then 20 for 8 with 8 second hold, and finally 10 for 8 with the same hold. Then switch legs. Isn’t this the gist of it?

Yeah, I have done these and couldn’t make it through the first time - they are absolutely brutal.

And don’t rush to that second leg! I usually really start struggling on the second-to-last hold

wait, are you only supposed to use one dumbbell? i used a pair.

One dumbbell I believe. If you used 2, no wonder you couldn’t finish.

One dumbbell! Holy crap how did you not fall over?

Well, I almost passed out - started seeing stars. It helps that I am big anyway but that was brutal.

I believe it. I get shaky toward the last couple drops, so I need that free hand to catch myself and wave around like crazy

48 hours, team; any more takers?

@ChongLordUno for every one of these workouts you sneak in, I’ll do 50 burpees

@simo74 @anna_5588 arm day is pretty awesome for the bicep curl club

As enticing as that is my man I don’t have the time for this style of working out right now.

Thanks for considering me however, appreciate it brother :muscle:t2:

Don’t have adequate strength to do the workout (or a modified, machine free version) with the weights I have

I started this today as well. Think i need to run this as a trial for a week to get all the weights right as its my first time back in an actual gym for over a year after working from home.

My first log so enjoy and get watching, tagged in!

I just read “The Brutality of Mountain Dog Training” while I was on vacation and was going to write up a Mountain Dog routine for myself after I was ready to move on from DC training. I think this program will be a great way for me to really see the structure in action and save me the head ache of coming up with what to do myself haha! I’ll definitely do this next.

Love it! I think a lot of folks have actually enjoyed cycling back and forth between DC and Mountain dog stuff
