20,19,18,17,16,15,14,13
20,39,57,74,90,105,119,132 reps total. Rested just long enough between sets to write it down and sip some water.
Wanted to do more, when you get to this point it's tempting to keep rolling downhill. But I'm fatigued enough to know I might miss it if I'm about to tear a callus or otherwise hurt myself. Good workout I'm going to put this in the bank.
Squats pull-ups stretched and done

Walked on my off days as usual

First time getting 210 reps this way with 2x22kg. Trimmed a peeling callus twice between sets (saved my hand). Almost overheated around the 14-11 sets, but once I hit single rep sets it was like coasting downhill
