Falling in Love with Fitness

We unpacked boxes of books last week that we have had in storage for 5 years. And I found the book that made me fall in love with fitness.

I wanted to be a Navy SEAL so badly when I was in high school. I checked The Navy SEAL Workout book from the library and kept it for months at a time. I used to take cold showers to toughen myself up.

When I saw this book over the weekend, I realized that I missed that style of workout and that I wanted fitness to be fun like that again. So I did a workout inspired by that book with a little deeper knowledge from my days as a trainer. That book is mostly pull-ups, push-ups, and sit-ups. I don't remember even squats being a part of it.

My Navy SEAL and fun-inspired workout today:

  • Warm-up
    • 10 Kettlebell Squat and Curls
    • 20 Glute Bridges
    • 10 Kettlebell Halos
  • Strength Sets
    • 5 Kettlebell Cleans 
    • 1 Hanging Knee Raise
    • 5 Rounds
  • Bonus Practice
    • 8 Pull-up Bottom Pulls
    • 2 sets
    • This is to work on the hardest part of a pull-up--the bottom part. Many people skip it and shorten the range of their pull-ups. This short movement at the bottom also helps my elbow that has been bothering me at the top range of the full movement.
