It’s not very often that someone legitimately kicks my ass...@titoraymond did just that. Many of you may know my good friend Thee Boston Mass, Jose Raymond, but did you know he had an equally as awesome, strong, super athlete of a brother named Tito Raymond?? I’ve trained with Jose many times, but some how never had the chance to get my ass handed to me by his brother Tito... until now! Tito has a background as a bodybuilder, powerlifter, and crossfit. Pretty much all things fitness. So I told Tito to come up with a workout to kill me in under 45mins. And Tito, I hated you and loved you for all 38 of those mins. Without him coaching me through the entire workout, I probably would have taken much longer.
WORKOUT: 3 rounds for time
With every round, I actually got better and faster even though I was dying. I started splitting up the wall balls in 3 sets of 10 instead of wearing myself out doing 30 in a row. Tito coached my form which got better with every round as well.
Reflecting back on this workout it really makes me want to incorporate some more Olympic and crossfit style lifts. Olympic lifting is something I have never really done before, so the DB snatches were a new movement and I really enjoyed them. Fitness should always be an evolving. When you evolve you get better, you get stronger, and you learn. I encourage everyone to continue their fitness journey by learning and incorporating different styles of training and fitness into your weekly program.
Try this workout and let me know what you think!! You can do this every week and try to better your time!! Good luck and have fun!
