Did you say "weighted pushups"?

Thursday night at 7:30pm is a CrossFit Express Class.  I hope to see you there.
The Iron by Henry Rollins.  Trevor sent this to me last night, health and I had read it years ago.  But dammit, The Iron is something you should read regularly to “stoke the fire.”  There are some memorable one-liners in this essay.  Please pick your favorites and post to Facebook comments.
Weighted Pushups
Are you reading this a doing a double take?  Weighted “PUSHUPS”???  Oh, it’s a thing.  We haven’t done this in a while, but since we’re at the end of the pushups challenge, it seemed like fun.  To perform a weighted pushup, you lay on the ground, on your chest, at the bottom of the pushup position.  Have a partner, or 2, stack weight on your scapula.  Once they have hit the desired weight – PUSH.  I wouldn’t make the weighted pushup the center piece of my strength training, but it is fun to do once in a while.  And it makes for great pictures.
