Oh, boy. There are so MANY titles I could choose for this post, and truth be told, I almost chose “a workout in reverse” and for good reason – although not the reason you might think.
I’ve written about workouts in reverse before, of course, which have consisted of nothing but the VERY BEST exercise you can do bar NONE – the reverse pushup, and this alone is enough to give most people the workout of their lives after a FEW (and I ain’t kidding) reps.
Believe me, ask the average “seasoned” gym goer to pump out even ONE of these – and chances are he won’t be able to do it.
If you are one of those people, not to worry – a WILL is all that is required, and if you’ve got that – well – here is how you implement that will – Reverse pushups – the BOOK!
Anyway, I could have also titled this point “change things up”, as that is precisely what I did today. I changed up the order and rep counts, and curiously enough, came “full circle” to when I first put the 0 Excuses Fitness videos out there, and at that point I was doing 50 squats and 250 pushups as part of my routine and those that have bought the videos know what I am talking about.
(Smart choice, by the way!)
Of course, those videos feature easier forms of pushups, but from the feedback I’m getting even those are enough to give a lot of you a killer workout, and truth be told, you are RIGHT. Even the simplest exercises, TWEAKED correctly can GIVE YOU a HELLATIOUS workout, and I ain’t kidding ya on that one.
Changing things up is something I highly recommend both in my book and my blog posts, not to mention my other writings, and this is key to achieving in LIFE as well – not just your workout reps, my friend.
Those of you that have been following this blog know I’ve been pounding between 300-450 squats daily, but today was a 50 rep day – and I’ve NO doubt in my mind that tomorrow is going to be a 400-500 day.
Stay tuned for that!
Anyway, coming full circle it is indeed, and in more ways than one, my friend. In more ways than one including my rep counts on the exercises, and on that very esoteric note (and yes, esoteric is indeed what is!) I’ll “leave you be for now”.
P.S. – Conceive; Believe; ACHIEVE!
