Got My Ass Kicked!
I went to Toronto this past weekend to my buddy’s studio http://www.laylor.com/
to share training and business insights. I believe… scratch that, I know that partnering with like minded people who inspire you to do more than you are used to or comfortable with is one of the keys to success.
And that little piece of advise doesn’t just come to you as some regurgitated babble that I read somewhere but truly put into practice and have noticed the results.
So there I am with getting ready for what I know is going to be one of the toughest leg workouts I have had in a long while.
He had me do the following…
Squats 6 reps with a 4 second negative – 250 lbs
Step forward Lunges off of a Stepper – 12 steps 40 lb Dumbbells
Leg press with a 4 second negative for 25 reps! – 350 lbs
I was completely failing at 5 reps but he made me do all of them… I was screaming so loud my throat hurt.
That was set one.
We did that again and then he made me drag a 400 lb sled about 100 m. By the end the sled was barley moving.
We then did some hamstrings and calves but I honestly don’t remember by this point I was a little foggy.
Sounds like fun eh? To me it is because it challenges me and lets me know what I am capable of.
Next week he comes here and I get to repay the favour.
To all my clients, this is why you come here. This is why you get training. To push your limits beyond what you would give of yourself and let you know what you are capable of.
So all I can say now is that “you’re next.”
