Coming off food poisoning. They say there is no such thing as the stomach flu, but that the average American gets food poisoning once a year. Don't have the strength or energy to exercise. I'll definitely do something tomorrow. Probably kick boxing - those bastards debited my account a day early and I got dinged for it! Maybe tomorrow will be a 5k for time... Hmm...

Weighted pull-ups 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

Post loads and body weight to comments.

If you can do a pull up do the above workout. Even if you can only add 5 pounds it will be good for you.

If you cannot do any pull ups do 5 rounds of 5 beginner pull ups or 5 rounds of 10 jumping pull ups.

Had to post something so, here's a CFQOTD:

The squat is the key to strength and conditioning. It is the sine qua non of barbell exercises. I usually go so far as to tell new trainees that if they are not going to squat, they should not even bother to train. No other exercise changes so many things about the body in so short a time as the squat. To omit squats because some uninformed fool said they were "bad for your knees" indicates that you probably didn’t want to do them anyway, so it's just as well." - Mark Rippetoe

Kickboxing in the AM. Inner thighs sore from Wed. squats. And upper abs still REALLY sore from the L pull-ups on Tues. That brings us to our CFQOTD:
