“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.” ~ Anthony Robbins

Spartan Shape-Up, Day 71:

Well, it was my least favorite workout day today - Bodyweight exercise day. Eh. I dunno. Couldn't tell you what it is I don't like about them... perhaps it is because they are the thing I struggle with the most (Burpees, why do you hate me?). Nonetheless, I do it. Today, I had all sorts of excuses not to do it - was running around like a crazy person after work - but, I remembered to prioritize me a little, and I squeezed in a workout while the laundry was running, and before dinner. Yeah!
I did get an exceptional raised eyebrow from the Paternal Unit, when he happened to come down the stairs just as I was overhead squatting the full laundry basket (just to see if I could...). He's afraid the pod-people have come for his daughter. Hmm.

Anyway, today's slightly shorter, but intense (did it fast, and hard!) bodyweight WOD is as follows:

  • Squats x 60
  • Push-ups x 50 (Still on my knees. Grr.)
  • Dips x 30  
  • Calf Raises x 50 
  • Lunges x 50 
  • Scissor Kicks x 80 
  • Burpees (... of Death) x 20 (WHY do these suck so much?!)
And, that's that, today. Nothing fancy, but lesson of the Day: No matter how crazy life gets, you can MAKE half an hour to get sweaty, if you want to. 

How bad do you want it?
