Happy November! Hope you’re all recovered from trick or treating this weekend. Each set of each movement in Monday’s workout isn’t so bad on its own. It’s short reps, but the compounding effect of one into the next adds up quick. You’ll need to manage your rest so the small sets are broken up as little as possible to maximize your score. Will your grip between the deadlifts and pull-ups be the problem, or will your low back go first, from the pistols and deadlifts? Figure out what’s going to give you the most trouble, and have a plan to handle it during your transition time, so you can do as many sets unbroken as possible.
