Naked Training

I felt primal and animalistic today. I wanted to go back to basics, like nature intended.

So, I trained without weights, kettlebells, or any implement. Naked. If Qdoba can have naked burritos, I can have naked training.

Bodyweight drills tested incredible. I put together a circuit and got a great training session in.

Walking lunges - 20 yards
Pushups - 8 reps
Frog Jumps - 20 yards
Egg Rolls - 5 Left, 5 Right
Crab Walk - 20 yards
5 Rounds - 14 min 30 secs

Tonight I made fried green tomatoes. You can't get them any fresher. They went from my garden directly to my kitchen, then under the knife, into the egg and bread crumbs, and finally into the olive oil. They went very nicely with my T-bone steak. Yum!

I HAD to eat something healthy after reading The Athlete Creator Dave Sandel's blog about his disgusting day of all fair food. He attended the Minnesota State Fair for the first time last week. I've been there, belched that.

I suppose it's good to eat gross food every once in awhile to keep you appreciating how good it feels to eat fresh, healthy food. Check out Dave's great food adventure, complete with pictures. It's almost as good (or should I say as bad) as being there.

Hi Amy, sounds like an excellent workout (and meal, too!!) What are egg rolls?
