A moment with my pup Jersey!

Last Friday, I got in my first “real” workout in almost 2-weeks.

Coming from someone who has rarely missed a few days in a row (unless I was sick or hurt), that was A LOT of time without working out. And it felt GREAT to get in a good sweat.

These days most people are working out to “feel good,” “burn stress,” “build immunity,” and “get their mind right,” versus just training to look a certain way. Me too.

I believe you will agree that there is NOTHING like the feeling of a GREAT WORKOUT these days.

Although I was still using a “walker” (2-weeks out of knee surgery) last week, that didn’t prevent me from getting in a great upper-body workout and getting my mind right.

Here is what I did:

  1. Bench Press x 20
  2. TRX Curls + Rows x 7 + 7
  3. SuperBand Tricep Pressdowns x max
  4. Dumbbell Bicep Curls x 15
  5. Dumbbell Tricep Kickbacks x 10 + max hold

3 rounds of that bad-boy. It took me about 25-minutes since I was hobbling around. But boy-o-boy did it feel good!

Basic. Simple. And brain-chemistry changing! It felt SO GOOD to train again.

After the workout, my training partner, “Jersey Dog,” came up to me and THANKED ME for training. No joke. He really did.

“Jersey” sat in front of the bench, looked me in the eyes, and said, “Nice job Pops. Way to blast the Arm Farm. Now let’s get that leg better so we can resume our walks.” 🙂

Well, he said something like that anyway!

My friends, never under-estimate the power of a “simple” basic workout.

Especially when you don’t feel like training as those are often your BEST workouts. That is when you NEED it the most!

They’re mind-altering. Body pumping. Energy manifesting. And completely game changing.

No excuses. Get it in. Today.
