Round 2 / Day 76: 100 Pull-Ups + 150 Push-Ups

When I woke up at dawn, my sinuses were still congested and my throat was still sore, so I had a decent excuse to skip Ab Ripper X this morning.

Still, I managed to heave myself up and over my pull-up bar 100 times. The first 25 reps were done with an extra 20 pounds chained to my belt, though I lightened my load by 10 pounds for the next 25. I cranked out my last 50 with no added weight, but they felt just as tough (if not more) than my first 25. I also threw in a bunch of push-ups -- the last 30 of which were Atomic Push-Ups performed with my TRX suspension system.

My goal? To work my way up to a full "Angie" CrossFit workout, which consists of 100 pull-ups, 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups and 100 squats -- performed as quickly as possible.
