Crazy Challenge Circuit Workout

Started today with a late breakfast blender drink (because I slept late because I filmed TT for Abs DVD's till late last night).

The ingredient list was: 1 banana, raspberries, blueberries, unsweetened chocolate almond milk, vanilla chai Vega, walnuts, cacao nibs, and cashew butter...plus 2 toasted almond butter sandwiches. No spinach in the drink today, but I had plenty of vegetables in a big boy salad at lunch.

Around 1pm I hit the gym for a crazy workout, the "TT Adrenaline Circuit Challenge".

Shuttle sprints plus bodyweight exercises...with a challenge component so we can all compete against each other.

Here's how you will score it:

You add the total # of Pushups + Pullups (from 3 rounds) and subtract two times the number of minutes it takes you to finish the workout.

I did 40, 30, and 28 pushups in 3 rounds, plus 10, 8, and 8 pullups.

The circuit workout took 26 minutes to complete.

So my scoring was:

98+26-52 = 72.

Curious about the TT Adrenaline circuit? It comes out February 1st.

Hey Craig, I've started making similar shakes and they are great. Are you using organic berries?
