Mix n Match Sunday Morning Workout Crushed Me

LOL. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way.

I decided to add my 5x5 bench press workout to my regular squat workout. It wasn't a 'big mistake', and there were no injuries, but dang, I was whooped with this one.

However, it was worth it because it means I didn't have to go to the gym this morning, and I could do everything in the garage. It's another busy week with three flights in 4 days, 3 coaching days, 3 cities, and every minute matters.

So Sunday morning's workout at the YMCA went like this:

1a) Squat
1b) Box Jump

2a) RDL
2b) Bench Press - 5x5 at 185

And Monday's garage gym workout went like this:

1a) DB Goblet Squat (light, high reps, to help reduce Sunday's soreness!)
1b) DB Incline Press
1c) DB CSR

2a) Ab wheel
2b) DB RDR

Good times.

Hope everyone had a great Father's Day.

And Mikey Whitfield, I hope you and kids were taking notes on this!


And everyone else, I hope you watched this for Father's Day...


Today's Kickbutt Kickstart Quote for the Day:

“Talk minus action equals zero. You can say whatever you want, post whatever you want on social media, but unless you're actually living what you preach it means nothing. It's easy to say the right thing but doing the right thing is another story. If you're not willing to back up the words then best to say nothing at all. Always let your actions speak louder than your words.” – Robert MacDonald, Gym Jones

Take action now,

PS - Happy belated Father's Day...

...hope it was a great one!
