How to Cure the Hiccups

It's that time of year again - the circumstances in my life force me to get extraordinarily creative when it comes to programming and scheduling workouts. I am currently working 7 days a week, upwards of 12 hours at a time. Due to the (most appreciated) generosity of my employers, I can generally run out to the gym to train or to the park to run. It's quick, but it serves to keep me sane. However, even the best routines can become problematic.

The Hiccup - We're down one employee here in the office for the next few days. While I'm sure I can still run out to the gym without garnering any disapproving looks - I just wouldn't feel right. For one thing, everyone else will still be here plugging away. For another, all my work will still be here waiting for me, PLUS the work I'd generally be handing to the missing employee. So, for all intents and purposes - my workload has increased for the foreseeable future. Work with a specific (and tight) deadline.

The Compromise - No more than one trip out of the office per day.

The Solution -
  • :10 - :20 static holds at the top of the pull-up position (potty pull-ups)
  • 1 set of push-ups each bathroom trip (10 the first trip, increasing by 1 each additional trip)
  • 100 squats and sit-ups (not for time) upon returning home
It's not Fight Gone Bad, Yasso 800s or Max Deadlifts. But it's something. And for now, it will have to do.
