I received a facebook message to have a worldwide farewell toast to Chris Kyle at 8 pm last night. In trying to find ways to send additional good juju his way, I decided to do a tribute workout.
Chris is universally known for 160 sniper kills, so I decided to do 160 of each exercise and to chose an intensity that would push the limits of what I can handle.
8 o’clock came in the middle of a set. I put down my medicine ball, picked up my drink, and stepped over to where I could see the large American flag above the gym’s entrance. Paid my respects, then got back to the task at hand.
The full workout:
4×40 single hand kettlebell swings
4×40 kettlebell rows
160 tire flips (sets started getting choppy right around this point)
160 gball iron crosses
160 toy soldiers
swim 4×40 meters
That was the end of my workout at the gym, added 160 situps after I got home.
Fair-well to a good man. Walk peacefully in Heaven’s streets.
