    Name my workout

    Primal Fuel
    My local playground is an amazing place to try all sorts of odd exercises. One of my favorites starts as a few push-ups, going into a squat, going into a flying leap to grab the bar that the rings hang from (8 feet up or so, I think...I should measure it!) and then a couple of chinups combined with leg and ab exercises, drop into the squat, do three or four more push-ups, repeat. I rarely get beyond eight or nine of these, then rest and go for the second set, and make it to four or five, and the third set could be between one and four reps. Anybody have a name for these?

    Oddly, the push-ups and chin-ups aren't the killer, it's the jump. After a point, the jump just won't go high enough to continue with the routine.

    sounds like a good routine. you should get specific with the reps and time and everything, and then post it here for people to try. it's sort of like a burpee with a couple of pull ups thrown in.

    it does need a good name though...something that goes from laying down to jumping up and tearing someone's face off in a matter of seconds. oddly enough, that reminds me of one of my cats. how about Puma?

    Puma is a pretty awesome name for it. Unless something else comes up, I'll call them that!

    Burpleepups: Bur-PLEE-pups [noun]...

    I named today's status-check HIIT workout "Fairy Godmother," so perhaps I'm not the best person to answer this question...

    PS Puma is better. Reminds me of my cat, too.

    That's about it, but he isn't jumping nearly as high, and I stay on the pushups and pullups for more reps.

    Ah, I see.
    I haven't tried 100 burpee pull-ups, but have done 50 burpee pull-ups for time a couple of times, it's a good workout
    Well worth throwing in every few months as a general benchmark workout.

    I might try it with just the one rep next time and see how many I can knock out. Just guessing, but it won't be a whole lot. I exercise for maintenance, not gains.
