The Big Papi Spit

Get this. I’m training a “wicked” cool 60 year old woman yesterday, putting her through a tough new circuit intended to make her sweat, get her stronger and have her do a lot of different movements.

We’re about halfway through the workout (30min in) and starting our 3rd set of a mini circuit. The mini circuit consisted of Barbell Front Squats to a box, Cable Rope Face Pulls, Barbell Stiff Leg Dead Lifts and Bench Push Ups (hands on the bench). All for reps of 5. Right before she picks up the bar for dead lifts, she SPITS in both hands, claps them together, rubs them on her pants and picks up the bar. She didn’t bat an eye and I don’t think she realized that she did it. It was hilarious. I wanted to roll on the floor laughing, but she was in a zone and I didn’t want to break her focus.

(nodding head & smiling), it was great! 🙂
