Extemporaneous Warrior Workout

I’ve spent the last few days really focusing on fine-tuning my first novel, The Built-in Smile (still looking for a better title). Consequently, I neglected my workouts for two days and was really feeling the need to whack a tire or do some pull-ups. Determined that I was going to do something after my day at Bill Jackson’s Shop for Adventure, I got home, changed clothes and opened up the garage door. I wasn’t jazzed about the workout I had written up earlier, so I decided to make it up and set it up as I went along. Sometimes, to keep the motivation up, you just have to do what you really feel like doing. For me, last night, this is what I came up with:

1. Atomic Push-ups

2. Sledgehammer Tire Whacks

3. Backpack + 35lb Kettlebell Deadlifts with Upright Row

4. Backpack Pull-ups–followed immediately with pull-up crunches.

5. Decline 20lb Kettlebell Crunches

6. Decline Leg Lifts

7. 20lb Kettlebell Side Lateral Raises–drop down to 10lb dumbbells and do more.

I finished with two sets of ten pull-ups just for fun. I was happy with the workout and satisfied that I had pushed myself well. Like I said, sometimes you just have to throw out the plan and do what your body and mind feel like doing.
