You never know…

Workout of the day:

800-meter run

80 Deadlifts

600-meter run

60 back squats

400-meter run

40 cleans

200-meter run

20 push press

100-meter run

10 bar muscle-ups

So, where’s the energizing move that propels me through this workout? My money’s on the cleans or deadlifts; always there for me and ready to punch that extra gear.

Nope, not today.

On this Sunday back squats woke me up like a mainline chia shot. The lift more commonly found within the grind of training took center stage, becoming a moving meditation and producing a full dose of energy and rejuvenation.

I was grateful to have been open enough to allowing back squats their day. Therin the lesson du jour – not assuming. Today I let the supporting cast have their moment in the spotlight, and it felt great!

Peace out, all!
