If you can do a light or challenge before - I'm telling you - there is no better practice than that.

Yesterday:

7 sets DB bench  15,8,5,5,5,5,5  superset with Atomik Bomb pullups x 5, full second pause at top and bottom, 5 seconds hold at end.

6.56 mile run @ 51:30   7:51 min mile.  Felt sluggish.

Company party last night, going to really have to rally to do something today.   Might just ruck.
These Atomik Bomb pull ups look great. never used them myself. Nice variety in your workouts and Intelligent training.

Thanks - I have the blue ones in the pic in your link.  I find them very versatile - and the way they free rotate helps alleviate shoulder issues I have.  I also attach them to chains that I use to drag a sandbag when I get the chance to work out on turf.

One thing I learned after I bought them - you can make a very cheap alternative by taking two softball (or baseballs) and driving an eye screw through them and using a washer/nut combo on the bottom.  Might be a good idea if any is cash strapped or if you want to test them before buying the real deal.
