Sheraton Downtown Philadelphia – Round 2

Another meeting, another workout challenge. You know the deal, 9 hours of meetings, followed by dinner. Exhausting and demotivating.

Day 1: Skip lunch and do this:


This comes from the WOD generator app from Amazon. I added another 1mi “sprint” at the end.  Its cold out and I know my running will suffer once old man winter leaves town.

Day 2: 6a partner WOD w my business partner.

Warm up w walking 26 floors, stretch
100 air squats
75 sit ups
50 burpees
25 thrusters
10 turkish get ups
25 hand stand push ups
50 dumbbell cleans
75 jumping lunges
100 DUs

For a made-up-before-bed workout, it did the job. I used 35lb dumbells for everything and should have used more.

For recovery, see the bagged powder from my instagram. I didnt have a shaker bottle, so I improvised w disposable coffee cups.

We are busy. We are overbooked. We are traveling. We are unmotivated. We are tired. We are agitated. We are unproductive. We are overweight. We are unhappy. We are why. I'm a pharmacist, I travel regionally for work and have been all of these things. What elevates me from these emotional ditches? Good health. My nearly 100 year-old Italian grandmother "Nana" said a long time ago: "If you don't have your health, you don't have nothing." Considering she still rakes leaves and gives me hell for, well, just about everything, I think she's pretty damn sharp and fit. On the other end of the spectrum: My dad died at 65 from a heart attack. He was a diabetic, a previous smoker, a recovered drug addict, a food addict, hypertensive, arthritic, immobile nearing amputation and, simply, wasn't living. For all intensive purposes, I'm fit and healthy. Armed with degrees in biology and pharmacy (read: loans) and these two family stories, you'd think staying on track is easy. Newsflash: it's not. Traveling / Working / Fathering / Mothering / fill-in-the-blanking are obstacles we all have to overcome. So, how do we do it? Suitcase Fitness was born from the hope that by sharing my small health and fitness victories while traveling, others may be inspired to find new ways to stay engaged with their health. My vision is that others will use this venue to share their "baggage" and small steps taken to overcome health challenges. I get by with a little help from my friends. - The Beetles The things that last, never happen overnight. - Slaves
