A crucial element of fitting a 30-40 minute am workout in before work is wearing headphones and listening to music that keeps you pumped. I’m always looking for new music that gets me to the next level. I do have a few favorites such as Daft Punk, Fergie, and Black eyed peas.
First Aid Kit’s My Silver Lining is not a song I listen to during the workout but rather a song I listen to after the workout. It’s a song about ( to me anyways) staying focused and meeting your goals.
Back to THE BACK, remember my pull up goal? Well, I hit 16 reps this morning!
Warmed up a bit on elliptical because I had some extra time, 3 minutes literally just to get the blood flowing.
Focused and determined to beat my personal record I headed dead straight to the pull ups.
Here’s my workout:
Pull ups, bodyweight (137lbs) 16 reps
Lat pull downs (70lbs) 15 reps
Pull ups 8 reps
