Since I arrived here in Kabul, I have been lacking motivation in the workout department. This evening I am starting an ab class followed by some weights.

I need peer pressure to keep me moviated and not just use an hour in the evening to rest.

Who are you?
Thanks again for your service Kevin. Hang in there, and Get Out There and Train. We are training here and are already buff, cut, and ready for the season.
Have an SST chase you down the street.

Find a Crossfit box and/or do some Crossfit Endurance workouts - high intensity intervals. If you don't have a lot of equipment, there's always push ups, pull ups, sit ups, squats, lunges, burpees, and mountain climbers that you can do. Got a jump rope? Do 50-40-30-20-10 reps of single unders (or double unders if you can) and situps. Full sit ups. Let me know how that workout compares to any abs class.

If you've never done CF before, try it, since it sounds like you need variety or something new. It's functional fitness, not just lat pull downs and bicep curls. Keep you workouts around 10-20 minutes.

Let me know if you need some workout ideas.

Jen

Thanks for the motivation!! I went to what was suppose to be a 30 min abs class tonight. It turned out to be an hour long all over body workout. I needed it, but my arms are sore now.

Simon, I know you never get out of shape!!

Jen, I will let you know if I need some workouts. Can you give me a 28 hour day?

Have you tried Fit Deck? Workout cards - used to do them on the ship - painful.

Just imagine me catching up to you on the run. You know, my Indian name is "Caught on the Run"... so, you really don't want to see me gaining ground on the run, big fella!

If it helps any... you just motivated me.
