Welcome to our laboratory—John’s garage gym (staged for photo). This is where the magic happens. In the summer, mosquitos bite and humidity chokes. It’s good in the winter too, with frozen fingers and a deep lung burn. Builds character.

We’ll show you the rest of the photo shoot next Monday. In the meantime, what are you doing to make the best use of space around your home or garage?
as many repetitions as possible; rest as long as previous effort:
30” wall ball @ 20/14-lbs.
1′ wall ball
90″ wall ball
2′ wall ball
2.5′ wall ball
3′ wall ball

This workout is scored by the total repetitions completed.

    Nice work Amy! You almost matched Mel’s score – You would have made John’s week if you had posted a 210. John S.

    Are you implying that there is some competition even between trainers? I must admit, John was being VERY encouraging.

    Wait a minute, now. I just want to see my athletes achieve proper intensity, try their hardest, leave it all on the gym floor, never give up, etc., etc.

    If they happen to take down the Melody juggernaut in the process, so be it. It’s a risk we all have to (be willing to) take.

    Dave O 174. I used 20lb dumbells and did thrusters…I had a trainer friend watch and keep me honest on the form all the way down and full extension of the arms.
