Day 299 (W, 111026) — Songs that Get Me Pumped, Part 3

Music Helps.  Number three in the series of the songs that get my blood pumping.  Switching a bit today and moving from songs from my youth to a different genre a bit later on (from when I worked as a bouncer) – dance/techno.

Battleflag by Lo Fidelity Allstars.  Not the best song in the world but, like all good techno, fun and long.

It’s got a good beat and you can dance to it. 😉

I just noticed that the link I originally put up for this video was for Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies. Woops!

Sandstorm by Darude.  Yes it’s common and overplayed . . . so sue me.  I still like it.

Run run run run run run run!

A Little Less Conversation by Elvis vs JXL.  Another popular one.  And a really cool video.

Mission Impossible from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Never stop, never relent, push push push beat, a great one to just RUN!

Control by Traci Lords.  Yes, the porn star.  This one comes from the Mortal Kombat soundtrack which, by the way, is full of great techno songs.

Mortal Kombat Theme by Utah Saints. Another MK song.

Juke Joint Jezebel by KMFDM.  Last one from MK, I promise. 😉

The City Sleeps by MC 900 Ft. Jesus.  Wow is this an old one.  Not a driving beat, but relentless nonetheless.


Exercise.  I have officially finished the squats and push-ups portions of the UPS program, I’m halfway through the sit-ups challenge (I did 100), and I’ve moved from Weenie to JV in the pull-ups program.

Today I’ll do 100 push-ups, some kettlebell swings (hopefully more than the 20 I did on Monday), and the next phase of the pull- and sit-ups programs.

Set 1 Set 2 Set 3 Set 4 Set 5 Total
1 PH
1 SD
60 (100)
Kettlebell Swings
0 (40)
A = assisted, PH = Power Hang, SD = Slow Descent
(#) = minimum goals for max reps and total reps

New Exercises.  Today’s pull-ups workout introduces two new exercises:

  • Power Hang
    Similar to a “Negative Pull-Up”, the object of this exercise is to hold the position of bar at chest (or slightly above) for at least :05, then lower yourself down to your feet.
  • Slow Descents
    Also similar to a “Negative Pull-Up”, this workout starts with a “real” pull-up or chin up (no assist) then lower yourself slowly for at least :05.

Review. I totally pussed out today, stopping my workout just 60 reps into my push-ups and before I did any squats.

I’m not sure what happened to my motivation, but it was just gone.

I think part of it is the lack of a plan. I have a loose set of things to do, but no coherent plan.

All I know is that I gotta fix this or things will probably get worse . . . .


Plan for Week 43.

Day Fast? SCD? Run/Exer?
Sunday No No No
Monday Yes Yes Yes
Tuesday Yes Yes No
Wednesday Yes Yes Yes
Thursday Yes Yes No
Friday Yes Yes Yes
Saturday No No Yes
Red = a negative deviation | Green = a positive deviation | Blue = a note
