Strength Is Beauty

Today's Motivation:

This needs no introduction.  I'm reminded every day I search the interwebs for inspiration for these motivations and find picture after picture of disciplined fit women that strong IS beautiful.  

I'll take strength over skinny any day.  

Today's Workout:

We went through some more fundamental movement review this morning, working with goblet squats, overhead press and pull ups.   

Goblet squats at 50% body weight?  Review shmew, 70 lb goblet squats about did me in. 

Annndddd I just gave away my weight.

After squats, we worked on the overhead press form with a ladder.

And of course, Scott's favorite, the pull up - "the ultimate test of strength."  

If that's the case, I'm not that strong. [Sigh]

Pull Up
We ended the workout with 1000 meter sprints on the rower to get the heart rate up (about 4 to 5 minutes). 

All I know is, if this is review, I might need to start working out a bit harder.
