I think I have a love affair with making people suffer. (and wine…)
But when I say suffer, I mean in a good way.
Ok, that sounds bad. Let me explain.
Ever since I’ve been practically living at the gym, giving people workouts all day, I have come to the realization that I enjoy, with every fiber in my body, that very moment when the 30 seconds (or 12th rep, etc.) is done and my
victim client collapses relaxes. They’re tired, worked, maybe sore, definitely sweating, and happy.
I caused someone, anyone, to be happy!
See, I love making people suffer.
I honestly love it when the workout is over, to which I am very sure they are happy too, and they just look at me and tell me that they loved the workout. Do you realize how much that makes my day??
It makes my day because the workout usually makes their day. I swear it’s those little, lovely, addicting endorphins floating throughout their body.
I’ll make your day if you’ll make mine…
Make My Day Workout
Load a 15 lbs or regular 45 lbs barbell with equal weight on both sides (a weight in which you can perform 8 overhead presses without dropping the bar). Do all exercises in a row, without dropping the barbell. If you need to rest, rest with the barbell either straight overhead or behind your head on your upper back/neck/shoulder area.
- 8 cleans (or high pulls with the barbell, elbows out wide)
- 15 front squats
- 8 push presses (overhead press)
- 15 back squats
- 8 reverse lunges, each leg
- REST - let your heart rate recover
- Repeat 4 times
- 8 box jumps
- 15 bent over rows (using a barbell)
- 8 push ups
- 15 bench dips
- Repeat 4 times
That should sufficiently make your day.
In terms of making people suffer, I’m referring to my wonderful fire cadets, but mostly my training clients… they’re just awesome.
What workout would you have me do? Make it a good one and I’ll do it! (either that or I’ll make my clients do it.
