Dual-ing Topics: Exercise and the Economy

As that post-election glow starts to fade, the ugly reality of the current economy creeps back into focus. There are a bunch of related pieces on how to deal with it, but the common thread is: go big, go hard. (Folks listed there are Paul Krugman, Robert Reich, and Noam Scheiber.)

And exercise? Well, the workouts I’m doing now follow the same philosophy: all-in, max effort. Take today: as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of 10 65-pound thrusters (front squat that ends in a press) and 10 pullups (I ran with assisted pullups since I’m still a beginner on them).  I pulled off 5 rounds + 8 thrusters, and was completely blown at the end. In a good way.

Hopefully we’ll unload some crazy cash into the economy in smart ways (infrastructure, clean energy, green building, state/local government assistance) and wind up shocked, amazed, and happy that we did it afterwards.
