Carrying a Heavy Load


Programming for Tuesday, June 11, 2013

By the time this workout is completed, those using a 65 pound bar will have moved 6,500 pounds.  Those using a 95 pound bar will have moved 9,500 pounds.  Bringing this to light is not to encourage everyone to complete this workout as prescribed, or even value these weights over others.  Using a 35 pound bar will result in an equally impressive amount of weight moved, of 3,500 pounds. Breaking these numbers down is intended rather to show you how much work you will have accomplished by the time you walk out the door.  Not many people can say they have carried such a heavy load in the course of one day.  Give yourself a pat on the back and thank yourself for being willing the weight of your own health and wellbeing.
