Knees on the Hands
Two Saturdays ago, we had our normal Saturday morning workout, just me and the guys. It was a small turnout because of the Thanksgiving weekend, but we had fun nonetheless.
Well, coming in to the last quadplex (four exercises in a row cluster), I started with heavy goblet squats using the 95 pound dumbbell for 25 reps. Insanely heavy? No, but when you add in 25 reps, your heart gets movin!
And then there were 3 other exercises to sprinkle behind that. After the final set, I put my hands on my knees, a big NO-NO in my book. I call people out on it, especially our athletes. So, I was glad that my man Jeff called me out; we both had a good chuckle over it!
Yes, you are going to get tired in your workouts and in life, but the keeping the hands off the knees is more of a mentality, not showing anyone your fatigued and not buying into the complaints of the brain when you do get tired.
Remember, the brain will give out long before the body needs to, if we allow it.

P.S-We are having our annual Festivus party on the 15th of December. It’s a great event, it’s BYOB and Potluck, kids are more than welcome (hopefully we will be able to get the live reindeer again this year). All donations will be going to Coach Gina and her kids for the holiday season because as you may or may not know, their house burned down a little over a month ago….be grateful for the little things.
