WORKOUT OF THE DAY

WORKOUT OF THE DAY 9.28.18

[Man] sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
— The Dalai Lama

Multiply the deadlift load in pounds by the number of handstand push-ups completed.
