Workout of the Week #82
It's still Mettlecraft Month in these here parts, so get ready for another workout that sure to stretch your limits inside and out.
- Heavy bag carry. Select the bag that's right for you based on your size and fitness level. Note: I used a full-sized #75 for this entire workout and by the end I prayed for a plane engine to fall out of the sky and end my misery. Set a round timer for 3 x 3:00/1:00. Put the bag on your shoulder and walk around for the 3:00, put it down and rest for the 1:00. Then go straight into...
- Grappling Conditioner #3. Set a countdown timer for 10:00 mins and complete as many sets as you can before the timer beeps of 5 Bag Lifts, 10 mounted strikes, and 5 Splay ‘n’ Punch. Here’s a video. Take as few 12-count breaks as you need in order to finish.
- Active Thanksgiving meditation. Set a timer for 8 minutes, assume your meditative posture of choice, close your eyes and regulate your breathing. Starting with right now, visualize your actions like a silent movie playing in reverse. What have you done lately to show your thanks? Not speak your thanks or think your thanks but to actually demonstrate your thanks by doing something? When I did this exercise I made it back two weeks and I only came up with three tangible demonstrations of thanks. Embarrassing! When you're done, do what I did -- put a thing or two on your to-do list. Give somebody a hand who helped you out, take somebody to lunch, make a charitable donation, or at least send somebody a card or a nice note. Actions speak louder than words!
