"Rather than viewing a brief relapse back to inactivity as a failure, treat it as a challenge and try to get back on track as soon as possible."
- Jimmy Connors

Continuing with our "ab" theme this week: http://www.positivehealth.com/permit/Articles/Regular/joel35.htm The issues are complex and nothing is definitive or settled.

Perform seven rounds of this circuit.

Incline dumbbell bench press, 5 reps, immediately,
Rope climb, once up.


1. Max load on bench press at each pass.
2. Climb the rope without using your legs on the rope. If you can, it's time to do it right.
3. Take as much time between rounds as required to max bench load.
