I've been writing about how I've been a bit sick - well, more than a bit - over the past few days.
And how I didnt let it stop my training - even for one day.
Maybe I went light yesterday - I did (50 pushups is super light for "Mr Ironman that routinely kills it").
(still too much for a lot of you reading this, I know!) ... but I did SOMETHING.
That thing about committment, that thing about ... ACCOUNTABILITY, if just to myself.
I long ago made a promise to myself that come rain, hell, high water or shine, I'd train everyday, if even for a second or so.
If all I could do was isometrics, I'd do it.
If all I could do due to health or some other issue was a gentle walk - I'd do it.
And so I did yesterday, 50 pushups. That was IT.
The fever and chills returned at night.
They may or may not again tonight, I dont know.
What I Do know is this I've been working all morning, yet, workouts were at the top, forefront, and back of my mind.
I gotta do some pushups, the thought kept popping into my head!
As I was laying the foundation for other big - nay, HUGE things to happen - I'll keep y'all posted when they do, I did 2 pushups.
But the shoulders are still sore and hurting like someone took a hammer to them.
So I thought.
I walked over to the chinning bar, thought I'd do a dead hang and thats that.
No big deal, eh.
I pumped out 5 pull-ups before I knew it!
And from that point on, it was GO - until now.
Now, 300 Hindu squats and 50 pull-ups might seem undoable to a lot of you.
And for me, it's not a lot actually to be honest.
But it's still a workout, even if you do the squats like I did in sets of 100 insead of 150 as I normally would have, and the pushups in sets of 5 evenly, instead of 3, 7, 8 and so forth.
And it's the perfect T boosting workout.
I figured I need all the T I can get to get rid of this nasty crap virus for one.
And two of the exercises that get the lungs pumping, muscles working, and T ZOOMING through your whole body - well, pull-ups and squats.
There's other great ones, of cours,e including handstand pushups, but nothing quite beats the squat/pull-up combo, and those that have done it will attest to the sheer efficacy and lung buster and feel good nature of these workouts.
Now, the exercise that REALLY gets t pumping - and everything going - and builds muscle like there's no tomorrow, fries fat off your body like nothing else out there?
I wish I could have done it today!
But I'm not qute THAT crazy - as yet. Hehe.
Time's young though!
But sprints, my friend, the way I described in Advanced Hill Training take the above effect - and AMP it up by a factor like 10 or more.
And if I had to choose ONE exercise - but you gotta do it right, and most folks don't - that really burns fat and builds muscle like there's no tomorrow, it's this one.
Get the course above, and get cranking on them NOW.
