I died the burpee death today!

It may just be me but no matter how psyched I am, it is not flying on Mondays! You now when the alarm is going off in the morning and your bed is nice and warm maybe the kids are cuddling up to you and the smell of them are just yummy and the last thing you want to do is to get up, that is how every Mondays feels like. The thing is though; Jonathan doesn’t give a flying shit. His expectations are always that you should perform like you are going to compete in the Olympics the following week and today was no different.

So we went out working the core hard and when we were done we brought out 25 lbs. kettlebell and moved on to the shoulders and legs. The sweat was dripping and the heart rate was beating for sure because touching the kettlebell to the floor and then pull it up under you chin together with the rest of the exercises in the circuit  you might as well be running sprints.

As the hour moved on nothing got easier and we kept on working the shoulders with the kettlebell and pre exhausting the legs with squats before Jonathan sent us to our graves doing burpees and mountain climbers in a 4 circuit exercise. I finished my last set and not only did it hurt but I felt lightheaded and it felt like I was going to pass out.

Somehow I managed to crawl out of the “burpee grave” and we finished off the hour with weighted split-stand-squats with high knee, shoulder press with the kettlebell, jumping spilt-stand-squat with dumbbells and lateral shoulder raises. It was an awesome workout yet I am glad that this Monday is almost over and hopefully Tuesday will feel more like when you have just finished your morning coffee and you are ready to take on the challenges that stand in front of you.
