  1. 17 red band pullups, next time no band!!!!

    10# pistols/35# kbs = 5:36

    side raises 25 on top/10 bottome 5 on each side

  2. 59 Pull Ups. Not my PR, but yet again, the numbers are moving in the right direction. Lat time the most I could muster was 50.

    2 1 pood KB's for the Side Presses.
