Benjamin is nobody’s friend. If Benjamin were an ice cream flavour, he’d be pralines and dick-
Spring is in the air and nothing quite captures or so eloquently describes the essence of what it means to us here…This Dude, We worship at his feet:
We have a dirty little secret we need to confess to you this morning: We genuinely do not like weight training. More specifically, destination weight training like driving to a gym to pick up stuff and gently put it down. Long time readers know why this is true: Its tedious, limited and boring. Scientific studies have shown that exercising helps you live a longer life…A longer life to spend in the gym!?!
Ask yourself this morning as you drive off to the gym in your fancy new yoga pants that scream look at my glorious rear(this applies to you as well chico)…Why do I want to live longer in the gym?
As always: Outside in the elements, with the kids/family/friends…
Spend 10 Minutes Tumbling (Forward rolls-Backwards etc…Loosen Up)
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Inverted Rows (Playgrounds are full of spots to do these) followed by:
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Feet Up Perfect Push Ups (Park Bench? Swings…?!?) followed by:
3-5 Perfect Pull Ups
And now the fun part! Look off into the distance, not through the trees maybe right up to them? Ready…Walking Lunge’s all the way until you finally reach a pine tree and want to give it a big hug!!! 400 to 800 Meters maybe?
If you are feeling frisky feel free to pick up little Jasper and carry him in a Rack Position or Over the Shoulder? And why would Inverted Rows and Walking Lunges be important…Feel free to comment if you have an idea?
As always play around with the rep scheme this morning to something that may suit you better. It truly is awesome to do this stuff outside…Granted there are more people looking at you like you are insane and delusional. The albóndigas at the gym miss you right now. Be safe and ENJOY!!!
