Weekend Damage Workout

metabolic workout finishers

I’ll be the first to tell you that yes, this is a “gift”, however, it’s not pretty.

First, admit your guilt. C’mon… you ate the Reeses Peanut Butter Egg didn’t you?

3 of them? Ouch.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate go together like pancakes and syrup. I can understand… in fact, I had 2 myself 🙂

But today is my big cheat meal day… and I’m going to experiment with “Oatmeal Cookie” pancakes. However, I’m going to the gym to get my burn on first.

Note – I bolded those words because that’s how important they are to me.

What started out as a joke at the Fitness Business Summit is starting to come into reality. I was literally asked on stage after my presentation… “Since you love pancakes so much, would you consider coming out with Pancake Finishers?”.

I even asked you on my Facebook Page and it seems you’re all for it.

The more I think about it, the more hilarious it is and the more I want to create it. They will have to be monster workouts so you can do the workout and have the pancakes.

I think it would be similar to something like this…

Today, I’m going to give you a monster workout to work off those Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs and whatever other damage you might do this weekend.

After all, spring is here and we’re heading into April…

… as in TOMORROW. Yowza.

So let’s rock a monster workout either today or tomorrow so you can stay on track… cool?

You’ll see I only hit your lower body in the main workout with just 2 moves. That’s because you’ll need your strength for the special Easter Gauntlet Finisher…

    That finisher had sweat pouring off me. Totally enjoyed it. Pants even felt looser yesterday. Thanks, I needed that.
