“Do not let a day pass without every muscle & every organ in your body being set in brisk motion.” – JP Mullen

Short on time and creativity,  I threw this ditty together on my way to the gym.  It consists of three basic movements but left me with a nice sweat and out the door in 20 min (warm-up included).

5 min treadmill run (easy warm-up)

  • 28kg KB Strict Press 5×3/arm
  • 28kg KB Clean 5×10/arm
  • 28kg KB Goblet Squat 5×5

Cool down- walk back to car in lot

Yeah, I wasn’t feeling much of a workout today, and that’s okay.  Sometimes you just need to listen to your body, but with that said, I am still glad I got in a short session with the bells.  See the title quote above, words to live by my friends!


Above is one of the greatest strongmen to have ever lived, Eugene Sandow.  I stumbled across an amazing website that is a plethora of old-fashioned conditioning texts and articles.  While there are some that I wouldn’t prescribe to ANY of my patients, there is a surprising amount that still hold water today and have been adapted by today’s S&C professionals.  I highly recommend the site, and the best part is that all of the material is COMPLETELY free!
