Front Squats & Weighted Stuff

Saturday is the workday. As simple as these workouts are they seem to take a long time.  I dont know if its the rest between lifts or what but no way could i get this done in an hour.  

Warmup
 Burgner Warmup and Progressions with Barbell.  Feel like my footwork is improving.

Warmup - 10 @ 135lbs
6 @185lbs

You all will find this video clip very amusing.   Learned a valuable lesson.  I think many of you will next make this mistake.
 

 
 
B1) Weighted Pullups - 5-5-5-5-5 - rest 30sec STRICT
5@20
5@30
5@35
5@45
5@45 Suspect last rep on both of these sets

5@20
5@25
5@35
5@40

C) Toes to Bar UB (strict) 10-8-6-4-2 

Was really looking forward to this one.  The only downside was no kipping.  I made sure I stopped my feet each rep so I didnt kip.
1:17 minutes

In the afternoon did a fast hike to Parkman.  It was great to have Jack come along and really push.  He loves to get the front and lead.  He describes his pace as bursty and it was.  Fast and rest. I would have preferred a more even pace.   Time on the trail - 60 minutes.
