Weekend Workout # 19

This weekend will seem like a simple workout on paper, but will be anything but simple when performing the workout.  There are only 3 exercises.  How hard can it be, right?

You will need access to a pull up bar (or a tree with a solid branch that you can pull yourself up from and hang on.  Unless you know that the branch is sturdy enough, I would recommend that you stick to the pull up bar.

The goal is to repeat this circuit for a total of 20 min.  Move from one exercise to the next with as minimal rest as needed.  When you no longer can complete the number of reps for each exercise in one set, run 1/4 mile.  For example, let's say you've already completed 2 rounds of each exercise performing all reps without stopping .  Now during your third set you can only manage 6 pull ups before having to stop.  You would now go for a 1/4 mile run (or use treadmill), and when you return  finish the 4 pull ups.  If you still can't finish all pull ups, (say you could only do 2), then you would run another 1/4 mile and finish the remaining 2 pull ups before moving to the decline push ups.  Then the same goes for that exercise, if you cannot complete all reps without stopping you go for a 1/4 mile run and try to finish the remaining reps.  Not so easy is it?
