This was hellacious. If I was the quitting type (which stubbornly I refuse to be…if you know me you know all too well why I stayed in law school even though I hated it), I would have quit this. HFS.
The first round was tough, and I knew it was only going to get worse. It took me over 9 minutes to complete the first round! I was so surprised.
“It’s like nothing happened…Honey Badger just gets right up.”
After the first round I was told to do 20 of each exercise. I had a lot of obnoxious comments to get me through, raw, ripped up hands to show for it and a strap thong to always remember Honey Badger by. What is a strap thong you ask? In the middle of a set of pull ups, I managed to lose control of the band I was using, and it went right in between my legs, snapping me in the front and back. I have lovely bruises to show from it, and the memory of everyone laughing at me . Hey, I think it’s a rite of passage!!
Overall, this was one of the hardest workouts ever, and I’m glad I won’t be seeing this beast anytime soon. I literally finished my last burpee, stood up to clap at the top, screamed “time” (28:57) and then laid myself down on the floor and tried to stop the world from spinning.
