I had to reread this twice to fully comprehend what in the hell you were trying to do. Pierre gave this to you before he met you in person are you sure he wasn't f'ing with you?

Nice work sets. I will store this in my memory banks for the next time my brother in law comes over and says lets get in a good workout.

I was supposed to do all 7 of his workout over about 2 weeks.

I wondered as well, if Pierre wasn't fucking with me while I did this. This one one of those situations where I started going too hard, fell into a deficit, then kept sliding further and further into hell.

That wasn't the worst workout I'd ever done, but it might be the worst one I've done in several years.

Steve,
I honestly was not fucking with you! I get my peeps to do shit like this monthly and its absolutely horrid. They love it! We call it SUCKFEST...

Its a good effective workout but as much of a gut check than anything.

I do have to admit that I am laughing my ass off right now.

Tire flips, sledgehammer swings, and kb work.

Tire: about 10 flips total. this felt awkward
Sledgehammer swings: I'd flip the tire back and forth then hit the tire 40 times with the sledge.

kb swings: 100 total broken up into 4 sets with 32kg

kb c&j ladder: 1/2/3/4/5....was completely gassing at this point.

~30 yard of overhead kettlebell carry each hand.

Outside is nice, but hot. Now I'm way filthy from the tire.
