I just finished up workout #4 from the new (and as of yet unreleased) TT Aggressive S&M workout.
S stands for strength, M stands for metabolic.
And here's the #truth: It's unlikely this workout will ever be released. It's just too aggressive. I'm quite beat up after a week of it.
We'll see. With a few more guinea pigs, some modifications to the program, and a little less volume, we could be on to something here.
I haven't experimented like this in a long time, and let me tell you, it's been a blast so far!
Tough getting out of bed, though...
Until then, here's another tough, tough, tough, tough, (but free) tough workout

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
From “Switch” by Chip and Dan Heath:
Step 1 in changing behaviour – Clearly identify and communicate what you want the new behaviour to be.
Step 2 in changing behaviour – Reinforce/reward the desired behaviour. PS – This also works on pets and spouses. Use this for good only.
Step 3 in changing behaviour – Make it easy to perform the desired behaviour. So make the necessary changes in your environment that foster the performance of positive behaviours. For example, research shows that people eat more vegetables when vegetables are stored in the fridge at eye level. The more you make healthier options available, the more people will choose them.
This daily practice is for ALL the people who are stuck or frustrated or scared or anxious or filled with regret
