I couldn’t resist deleting this video.
My little girl often joins me at the gym, especially on weekends. Whenever she is there with me, I usually let her be the DJ and play whatever music she likes (loudly). I was trying to video some heavy rope variations, and, of course, she was a dancing fool. You’ve got to watch the whole video, it gets good toward the end.

No more 6-pound medicine ball for me anymore. I’ve graduated to a heavier ball, like it or not!
That thing is heavy!

The topic of husbands working out with us came up a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to have a Valentine’s Day version of Suffer today. Husbands were invited to join our weekly workout, and two showed up! We had 8 people . . . 2 couples and 4 ladies, and it worked out very well. This was our workout . . .
Heavy Rope :30 + Sledge Hammer :30, Rest :30
Sled :30 + Jumps :30, Rest :30
Med Ball Throws 1:00, Rest :30
Jump Rope or Bike 1:00, Rest :30
We did 5 rounds for 30 minutes and the husbands got a good taste of how hard the ladies have been working, which is a good thing. After we finished the circuit, some got on the bikes for a quick finisher, while the rest of us did a shuttle run drill.
I think next weekend, we might have a couple more spouses join us, who were unable to come this week. It is actually a great thing because my clients often mention that their spouses wonder what we do during our training sessions. Joining our Suffer on Sunday, they get to experience part of what we do first-hand!

Finally, I’ve got some kickboxing videos posted so my clients can now do some workouts on their own at home. I usually do 2 minutes on, with a 30-second rest. I try to keep everything equal on both sides. . . if I do something on the right, I do it on the left.
And, a big “Thank You!” to Janet for helping get these videos!
