Great workout today. The burpee time improved a ton just because I did a better job managing the effort. If you are doing any high intensity cardio activity (sprinting/burpees/plyometrics) the key to maximizing performance is to keep your breathing relaxed.
As soon as you start gasping for breath you are in oxygen debt and its game over. You can keep pushing, but your performance will suck and it will be very painful. Staying relaxed and right on the edge of oxygen debt is the key. Once you get better at it you will be able to stay relaxed even though you are pushing even harder.
I added a new tech toy to the blog. If you go to the consistencywins.com website, at the bottom of each post there is now a section that says, "You might also like" and links to other posts from the blog. The only thing that sucks is I have named all my posts with just the workout date so to figure out what the post is about you have to click on it. If people like the tool I will keep it and fix the post titles, or maybe just delete it if no one uses it.
Next time you think you are strong, think of this guy. He is an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Marine named Chris West. He is doing a handstand pushup with a 100 pound bomb suit.
