Workout of the Day - Handing My Own Ass On A Platter

Despite the fact that I was woken up twice in the middle of the night by my dog who had to "take care of her business" outdoors, I woke up feeling great and ready to take on the day. The way I see it, the way you take on your day will be dictated by the mindset you create from the get go.

My friend, personal trainer and strength coach Travis "TJ" Jones said it best by saying, "If you take it on starting slow, starting sluggish, not feeling good, then that's how your day is going to become!" 

With that being said, what better way to supplement a great start to my morning than by adding in a workout that's guaranteed to make you feel AWESOME X 10! This workout was one of those that most people would look at and dread and possibly ask, "Is there something else I can do instead?" My answer to that - "NO! Suck it up and get it done!"

This workout is one that I call "Handing My Own Ass On A Platter", cause quite simply.....that's exactly how I felt afterwards!

So stop whining, make no excuses, swallow that "Man Up" pill, tie up those shoe laces, and get ready to as my friend, strength coach and fellow colleague Robert dos Remedios says....

So here it is....
