Burpees & Pull Ups

Lunch time workout:

Burpees and Pull Ups

2 x 20 Burpees
10 Pull-ups (Gravitron at 70)

Notes: I changed my mind several times while thinking of what I was going to do today. At first I was going to do the burpees as a Tabata interval workout, but I decided on doing sets of 15 with a 30 second rest. I went in thinking I would do three sets and then pull ups but I was gassed after doing two. I did the burpees with 5lb dumbbells in my hand and I jumped up as part of each rep. Short but taxing workout.

Bonus work: I brought my grandson to workout in the evening. I walked a couple miles on the track with him, and then I did a hierarchal set of crunches on the HammerStrength machine (50, 60, 70 lbs.).
