Burpees and Temptation

dessert-main_fullWhen I got on the Zone Wagon last year, I had a hard time weaning myself off of the sugars. Then I found a post on the message boards where this guy does 10 burpees every time he was tempted to cheat.

What’s better is that he did 100 burpees if he actually gave in! So the next time you get the urge to walk over to the fridge, get your ass up, knock out 10 righteous burpees (clap overhead), and see if you still want that leftover Halloween candy bar hidden behind the Omega-3 eggs.

(Now this is a PREVENTATIVE method, not a PENANCE, so don’t plan on doing 300 Hail Mary Burpees to earn a three-scoop sundae!!)

  1. Happy St. Patricks Day! Great Blog and I guess 200 Burpees are in order tomorrow as Penance since I read this too late. The blog on Murph was inspiring and I am headed getting the book tomorrow. Keep up the inspiration inside and outside the gym.
