Odd Squat and Bench Monday Session

Happy International Bench and Chest Workout Day.

This is every Monday, as you know, and makes for a busy gym, most of the time. It certainly will be in a few weeks during January 2014.

But today the gym was empty for an odd squat and bench workout. After all, who does squat and bench on the same day? I do.

It was a good - and odd - workout. I squatted beside this crazy early-20's girl wearing giant raver sunglasses. And she was squatting heavy, too. It was weird.

But still, good times.

1A) Squat
1B) Prisoner Squat Jump

2A) Bench Press
2B) Pullup

3A) Chest-Supported Row
3B) DB Chest Press
3C) Good Mornings (light, because it's been a long time since I did this move...and it can leave me with sore hamstrings)

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
If it is in your house, you are going to eat it. Get rid of it. Do not rationalize it's existence. if family brings it in, then you put it in a place that is extremely difficult for you to access. A high cupboard, out of sight, out of mind. Research shows the harder it is to access, the less you eat.

"Use your fear as fuel. Embrace the unknown and it softens to the point where you can work with it." - Seth Godin
