Athlete Profile: Ted K.

Ted’s positive attitude and work ethic are inspiring, and his consistency shows across the board. Since May of 2008, when he began training, he has gone from zero to seven pull-ups, and has increased his strength, power, speed, and coordination markedly. Even with a demanding work schedule and a full family life, he has made the necessary lifestyle changes to provide the optimal environment for health and super-wellness. Not only does he come to the gym on his own to complete the “Workout of the Day”, but he has also committed fully to proper nutrition. We are proud of you, Ted!

    Thanks- this is a nice surprise! I was just going to record that on Saturday I had a rigorous tennis clinic, and on Sunday 11/23 I did the following gym-less workout (warm-up being two loads of laundry):

    75x pushup
    75x squat
    75x sit-up
    75x mountain climbers

    I partitioned it in 3 sets of 25x each, and further partitioned the second set of pushups as 10,10,5 and the third set as 15,10; I subdivided all the mountain climbers as 10,10,5. I thought the mountain climbers were hardest. I did this at home and had one quick telephone interruption, I finished in 18:30.
