Death By Burpees
Training last Thursday was the devil lol! It wasn't so bad at first. I did some lat pull downs, all different sorts of squats, and walking up and down stairs. Then he lowered my burpees. You see, I was doing them on a bar that was probably at my waist. First, he had me doing a few on a bench, which was MUCH lower than what I was used to. It was soooo hard, but he believed I could do more. So, he flipped a BOSU ball over and I used that. Now, I'm not only practically on the ground, but not there is also a new, brief element of stability in play. They were incredibly hard. I cannot describe it. At this point, I'm thinking we are done...not so fast. He then takes me through a circuit of push ups, burpees on the BOSU ball, and walking lunges. It just kept on and on forever! I literally thought I was going to cry. Towards the end of the 2nd circuit he looks at me and says, "Is that a...are you going to...don't you do it...do not do it." Yeah, I was really about to cry. It was just so hard and I felt defeated knowing that I still had another round to go. Something about hearing him say that did something to my pride though, and the tears that were about to fall dried up lol!
