Not In The Mood

We all have days where the last thing in the world we want to do is go to practice, or even worse, the gym. Today I don't want to be here and I practically live in the gym. Working out doesn't sound appealing and I'm sure that this thought will resonate with many of you today as well. What should we do in this situation? Here is the solution I am going with: I am going to add some weight to each of my sets, do exercises I hate a little more than the rest at a higher intensity than typical, and crank out some music that I can get lost in for a while with hopes of forgetting how much I don't want to do this today. When it's over, we will all feel better. Hope your day I going a little smoother!


5 min warm up
4-2-1 tempo
3x 12 push ups
3x 12 squat to over head press
3x 50 meters of lunges

2x 50 meters skipping for distance
