Yes, this would motivate someone to work out. But my trainer knows what works best with me.
Today, part of my circuit training involved standing with feet apart, raising a heavy sand ball above my head then squatting and as I came down, slamming the ball hard into the grass.
I wasn’t slamming hard enough, so my trainer suggested I think of a way to motivate myself to throw harder.
Here’s how it went:
“One…Bill O’Reilly! Two…Glenn Beck! Three…Sean Hannity! Four….Karl Rove! Five…Rush Limbaugh…”
And so on.
That ball got slammed really, really hard.
So hard I had to stand in a hot shower when I got home.
Genius, I tell you. Genius.
