I’m Going On Vacation in Two Days
Continuing with the whole “I’m getting ready for vacation, and I don’t feel like writing long blog posts” mentality, here’s a video that one of my readers (thanks Julian) passed my way last week.
Assuming you made it through that entire video without wanting to jump through a pane glass window, here are a few thoughts:
1. That was easily one of the best forms of birth control I have ever seen. Seriously, my penis is over in the corner right now in the fetal position sucking its thumb. Shhhhhh, it’s okay buddy. Now now, it was just a bad dream.
2. While I could easily sit here and roll my eyes and say that this is a complete waste of time from a fitness standpoint, I’m not. I think that goes without saying. I mean, lets be honest, spending 45 minutes (or however long the workout is) rolling around on a stability ball isn’t going to mount to much, if anything at all.
Be that as it may, a vast majority of women tend to take an indefinite hiatus from training once they have a newborn, so I think this is a fantastic way to at least get them moving and motivated to head to the gym. What’s more, when you think about it, as the baby grows and gains weight, the mom’s are pretty much guaranteed to be practicing progressive overload, which is a step in the right direction.
3. On a completely unrelated note, here’s my friend Nia Shanks making 315 lbs her bitch the other day:
That’s at a body weight of 120 lbs, which is 2.625 times her body weight. Very, very impressive to say the least. Notice, though, that she still looks like a girl (it is possible to lift heavy things and not turn into a she-man), and that the “Cardio Sucks” t-shirt she’s wearing is totally awesome. I’m hoping that soon, Nia will be heading up here to Boston for our EPIC deadlift- off. In the meantime, check out her blog, HERE, where she discusses, in detail, her road to 315. See you soon, Nia. There can only be one.
