Because, during this zombie apocalypse, they are going to be sadly mistaken if they think they’ll be overpowering me or any of my clients.
Here’s a little single-leg RDL with a barbell in one hand and balance assist with the other. Last week, I was messing around with dumbbells and thought, “why not just use a barbell?” 325lbs x 5 ain’t bad for one side (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B-iLFm_jeA5/). And yes, that is a rip in the left leg of these pants whose tensile capacity has been tested with my glute and leg size gain over the past few months (probably more like the past year). I am so pumped. So this is a semi-flippant post.
My clients and I have been hitting PRs since the pandemic struck. It’s as if clearing out commutes and the white noise of pre-global-infection life gave rise to focus. At least, that’s the case for people who haven’t backed down. I’m sure some of the quitters out there are shooting themselves in both feet with two fully-loaded double-barrel shotguns. Good luck to them. Life will have to resume at some point; and you can be better to begin with or you can be worse.
