I have been watching a lot of music videos lately, and a few days ago I came across the Destiny’s Child video for their song Survivor. I liked the song when it originally came out years ago, but I guess that this was the first time that I really paid attention to the lyrics. What can I tell you – they just got me so pumped up with energy that I felt inspired to create a workout from the song and share it here so that we can all rock it together. We are going to embed the video below so that you can listen to it before you do this workout and get pumped up too :) This is our song to Brutus!
Freddy and I were talking today about how great it is to have a workout friend – someone to train with that will push you to try harder and help keep you motivated. It’s great to have someone like this who won’t let you slack – someone who will keep you going when Brutus tells you to quit and eat cupcakes instead. Freddy calls them BodyRocker Buddies – which I think is a great name. Do you guys have someone like this where you are? Even if you don’t have someone physically there with you, one of the nice things is about being a BodyRocker is that we have each other here on the site :) You can always try and beat my scores or someone else’s, and there are plenty of people here to cheer you on :)
I hope that you guys enjoy your workout and don’t forget to push really hard!
