Last day

This is it. You’ve been putting it off. Now, this is it. The final day to register for the Intramural Open. Here’s the Top 10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Sign Up:

10. “I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE WORKOUTS ARE.”
Yeah, that’s the point. Nobody does until they’re announced.

9. “I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH.”
We go through this every year. Yes, you are. And it’s just like all the other workouts we do every day – scaled to your ability.

8. “MY GOALS DON’T MATCH THE OPEN.”
Getting fit isn’t your goal?

7. “I DON’T HAVE $30.”
Sure. Let me hold your latte while you text on your iPhone about your lunch date.

6. “I’M TOO BUSY.”
Understandable. You need to save all your time for watching that Shameless marathon on Netflix. Priorities.

5. “I’M SCARED.”
We all are. There’s a support group for fear. We meet at the box … and do the Open workouts.

4. “EVERYONE WHO DOES THE OPEN DIES.”
Um, not true.

3. “MY CAT IS LONELY.”
Valid.

2. “I’M NOT COMPETITIVE.”
Tell me again why you joined a fitness program with timed workouts and Leaderboards?

1. “I LIKE TO WORK OUT NAKED.”
Video the workouts. We’ll review them. Carefully. Trust me on this one.

Listen, if you plan on working out on Friday’s at all, you’ll be doing the Open workouts anyway. We program them for the entire day. Why not do it with your team and earn them an extra point?

    Deadlifts x3

    Focused on WHEN I brace before lifting – brace, grab the bar and go instead of my habit of setup, brace at the bottom and then go. Made a BIG difference!

    Today I joined the 7 am boys club.. My back was not my friend today so I stayed the 35# and focused on my form.. I also did a couple trips of overhead walking lunges..
    5 min plank.. I got lost in the math and my back was not liking this.. I survived lol

      This is why I shouldn’t post a weeks full of workouts in one day..
      My deadlift numbers were actually
      105 – 120 – 135 – 145 – 155 x4
