Hero Workout for Will Lindsay | Paying the Man Ep.021

workout of the day today is a good one I met I was in Utah doing a fit Expo and a guy named Evan walked up to me and asked me if I could make a hero workout for someone he knew that had died in Afghanistan on recently he was part of 10th Special Forces Group his name was will Lindsay I said I would be honored to be able to make a workout for him his family that they're gonna do it I want to say on at the end of May might be moment where they weekend I'm not sure but yeah so this this one that's dedicated to will Lindsay and me and my buddy Mason over here are gonna crank it out today so it's gonna be ten rounds three devil presses at 55 pounds if you don't know what those are will show you 22 lunging steps holding the dumbbells and then 19 air squats and we're gonna go ahead and we're 20 pound best for this so the the numbers significant is that this is the day dive was 3 22 19 so recent very recently so yeah these workouts are great it's really easy to push when you are doing it for someone you know who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country so I got to work with specialized when I was overseas on my second deployment so you know just honored that I get to do something like this so I appreciate Evan reaching out to me and you know hope this workout is good and you know everyone out there can do it in the name for a for all we'll Lindsay so let's get this party started how do you come out of the game wine wine and then a warm tone you know I'm here like that single day pickles three-year effect is really annoying not annoying but like you know like hurt you can complete the chamber let's go yeah yeah well they got three presidents and the water well the best doesn't heat you in the back of head at all so that's good so you can actually do sweeping step backwards so go here this point see step you take my merry flag always off that one yeah I thought it to go up the other one yeah I miss this oh yeah I'm right for this sir okay who's the shirt so I do typically attack longer round workouts something like ten rounds ten rats well this one you just go hard head down go hard hero workout right yeah this is just one of those grinder workouts right I mean it's not it's not really a sprint workout because you got the lunges and then the lunge it's just our lunges and then air squats and belt press is just a grind workout 10 rounds you know you think about it for who is for what you're doing it for you know it's a it's a memorial style workout and so it's easier to push when it really starts to hurt so for this I don't really have a plan of attack my plan of attack is attack I choose violence alright gotta keep this thing going alright [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] yeah it's good hope the public onesie family likes to work out hopefully had dedicated it something to him so that he something you know they can keep special for them and keep will Lindsay's memory going on forever anybody who
