I don't know how the weather is where you guys are, but where I live it's dark and cold and rainy.
I'm off work today, and I really don't have anything in particular I need to do. The Christmas presents are bought and wrapped. The tree is up. The house is reasonably clean.
So, what should I do to fill up my day?
Well, I suppose I could jerk off all day, but that is NOT what I'm going to do. Instead, I am going to work out. But, before I get started I need a little inspiration. I need some jock dude to serve as an example, a guiding light, a shining star by which I will navigate my sweaty self to a higher plain of physical consciousness.
I choose Frank Molinaro of Penn State's wrestling team. Frank was runner up last year at the NCAAs. He lost to Kyle Dake of Cornell, but that does not blunt my unweavering admiration for Frank. Not in the least. Here's a look at Frank - the Gorilla-Hulk (that's what they call him).
Run on the treadmill for 30 minutes.
100 Pull-ups (I have a pull-up bar in a door frame)
100 crunches with a thirty-pound weight on my chest
Three sets of over-head presses with 30-pound weights
Three sets of front raises (twenty-pound weights)
Three sets of lateral raises (twenty-pond weights)
My point in all this is NOT to brag about my work-out. It is, instead, to demonstrate to you that even if you are stuck in the house, you can work out. Okay, you don't have a pull-up bar, so - do push-ups. You don't have a treadmill? Run in place with knees up high. You can do it, dudes. Don't wait until New Year's Day to begin a new routine. Do it, NOW.
And if you lack inspiration, just think about Frank.
