Just curious if there are any weight-lifters or runners who have favorite workouts or exercises they prefer.
I tend to lift in the winter when I'm not working, but I always do jump-rope and cardio, but if I get into it I love doing the Olympic style lifts. I recently started using a heavy bag as well. I try not to run because it can over time do damage to the legs, but when I do I get into doing sprints instead of long distance.
I'm always interested in learning new ways to work-out, but with a low budget I try to keep it cheap (I've tied a rope to a log and dragged it across a field, or hitting a tire with a sledge hammer, or spending time hitting fallen wood with an axe).
The one lift I will always keep doing through the years is squats. Love leg days!
have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you became a hired goon right out of school? you would have had a chance to learn the ropes from other goons and rub shoulders with all kinds of seedy characters. oh the stories you would be able to tell.
