I Spotted Something Amazing During My Backyard Workout

This is pretty much non-fitness related, except for the fact that I spotted this during my backyard workout.

“The t-stand from the clothesline cast a shadow onto the fence, but it reminded Josie of something more. Sweat dripped onto her brow with heart pounding as she cursed every burpee still to come. Yet the shadow on the fence gave her a warm & cuddly feeling inside. And in that moment…if only for a few seconds, she forgot her quads were on fire.”

If you are a follower of Christ, I’m certain you can appreciate the symbolism of the shadow on the fence.

Dang-blasted! I’m bummed that summer will be over soon. I will miss my backyard workouts. It offers so much versatility opposed to working out indoors. Good thing I’m investing in a portable squat rack I Spotted Something Amazing During My Backyard Workout to indulge in a living room squat-fest on those cold, winter mornings.

…so ya, there’s always that.

The Truth About How to Get a Great Pair of Legs

Before I knew the truth about how to get a great pair of legs…

meltingleg1 The Truth About How to Get a Great Pair of Legs

And then, after discovering the truth…

sledgehammer workout The Truth About How to Get a Great Pair of Legs

But what exactly is the truth?

First and foremost, you have to combat the lie.

It’s the lie that says you don’t have the body type to ever have nice legs. Your thighs are too big and you’re supposedly big-boned? Nor do you have the patience & mental fortitude for the journey. Something along those lines, right?

You have to STOP believing the lie. This is the first truth.

…and now to embrace the second truth.

Getting your legs lean and sculpting them into sexy requires a healthy dose of patience and consistency to see the process through. If you’ve got a lot of weight to lose, getting the legs you want will seem like a gazillion light years away. Impossible, even. But please, don’t let discouragement drown out your goals.

Discouragement is a very natural, human emotion. You’re not a robot, after all. But discouragement must be managed effectively and, eventually, overcome.

Training your legs is the easy part. Belief, patience and consistency is a whole ‘nother cup of tea.

If you bust your ass all week on your fitness, then look in the mirror and barely see any leg progress — yep. There will be days like that. LOTS of days like that.

But it’s coming. A great pair of legs is on the way. You will get there. I promise. Keep on pushing forward.

In the spirit of a great pair of legs, here’s my Sledgehammer Stretch demo. It primarily targets the hamstrings, but stretches the back as well. 

 

So tell me: do you have what it takes to get a great pair of legs?

What’s the Hardest Thing In Fitness You’ve Attempted So Far?

This dang pull up bar. It is my nemesis.

pull up bar Whats the Hardest Thing In Fitness Youve Attempted So Far?

It’s the most difficult thing I’ve faced so far in fitness. Progress is slow and can easily be discouraging if I don’t keep my head on straight. Sure, I can hit a few chin ups at this point, but it ain’t a pretty sight. And no pull-ups yet… nada.

I feel like I’m 10,000 pounds of concrete cinder block when I’m hanging from this thing. Yet I’m hitting the bar every other day and will not be satisfied until I master it. Got a long road ahead, but gonna make this pull-up bar my beyotch. That’s just the way it’s gonna be..

I remember when push-ups were totally out of my league and accomplishing a handstand was just a pipe dream.

Here’s my cheesy push-up vid from 2012. I can’t believe how much my body has changed! Especially upper bod & mid-section. More proof that consistency always wins the race. icon smile Whats the Hardest Thing In Fitness Youve Attempted So Far?

So tell me: What’s hard for you right now that you almost feel like quitting, but you’re determined to continue until you master it?
