The reason I respect people who are fit so much is that there are no short cuts with fitness. If you can run ten miles, the only way you can do that is by running. If you can deadlift 315, it’s because you did deadlifts and got stronger.
Being in great shape has always given me a sense of pride. I like knowing that I can outrun people. I love knowing that almost everyone I meet with quit before I will.
Ever since my back surgery, I have been (very) slowly building my fitness back up. It’s been a humbling process. I’ve never in my life, had to “take it easy” during my workouts. I’ve always been able to push through the pain and finish strong.
Today was the first time I felt like I could push myself. I did 3800 meters on my rowing machine, but afterward, I still felt like I had more to give.
I grabbed my phone and made a video of my Tabata style workout that I do in my garage.
I love Tabata workouts because they don’t require any weights and you can do them anywhere. They are also great because anyone can do them regardless of their fitness level. It’s a great way to meet people where they are.
I’m on a mission to get my fitness and my body back to peak performance. I think it will be cool to document the journey and maybe other people would like to join me in doing my workouts.
Honest work for honest results.
