Here we see Lindsay after a recent workout, doing exactly what you should be doing after a workout. Granted, Lindsay is known for finding creative ways to get comfortable using equipment that was never meant for comfort, but at least she waits until the workout is over to rest (and so we get right down to the point of today’s rant).

In a nutshell, don’t rest more than you need to during your workouts. That’s why they call them “WORKouts” and not “RESTouts”. They’re also not called “EXCUSEouts.” Funny how that works, isn’t it? You’re not going to catch your breath anyway, so you may as well spend the time getting through the workout as quickly as possible and save the resting for afterward.

When the clock starts and you’re sweating like a cat trying to bury a turd on a marble floor, remember that you’re the cat and not the turd. You’ve got work to do, and can’t afford to waste time lying around stinking up the place. As I said before, that’s for afterward.

So give it all you’ve got during the workout – empty the tank and make sure you don’t have anything left when you call “TIME!!” Then you too can find new and creative ways to turn the equipment into a hammock, and you will have earned it.
