Metconmonster Day 1: Holy Sweat!

Yesterday I mentioned how out of the box this challenge was for me, and Day 1 proved that even more!
TKD and hiking are my two activities that I push hardest on, but when it comes to the gym, I tend to stick to bands, the cable machine and core work, especially during golf season.
Today I took on a workout called the Breathless Burn:

The goal is to set a timer for 25 minutes and see how many times you can perform these four exercises safely. I started with 15 pound dumbbells and then dropped to 10s because my form was starting to fail. When it was all said and done, I survived 9 full rounds! My goal is to do this workout again towards the end of the challenge and see if I can beat that number by at least 1.

And yes, that's stomach sweat you see in the picture, I was dripping!!!

On a separate note, I'm now one week into our other office challenges. After drinking 20oz of water every morning for 7 days, my skin looks brighter, my lips are less dry, and I feel way more awake in the morning. I also feel like I have to keep running to the bathroom!

I'm off to finish some of my kicks before bed, tomorrow I will be posting a new glute circuit for you all to try!

Happy Monday!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
