We're Working Out! in St. Louis

During my visit to St. Louis this past Memorial Day weekend, there wasn’t much time for a formal workout session, but I wanted to make sure I didn’t lose footing as I ascend towards mastering my bodyweight. With that in mind, I decided to get my reps in throughout the day anywhere and everywhere that I went.

In addition to attending a few family functions, I hit up the usual tourist attractions like the St. Louis Zoo, the Missouri Botanical Gardens, Grant’s Farm and of course, the famous St. Louis Arch. Though I didn’t strictly adhere to a healthy eating plan while vacationing, I made sure to practice push-ups, pull-ups, muscle-ups, dips, L-sits and of course, the human flag.

You don’t need a gym to get your workout in!

    The human flag right by the base of the arch! Going to have to do the flag at all national land marks!

    Very inspirational! I love your good spirits, too. Glad to see you got a chance to do the human flag at the Arch.

    BTW: did you happen to see the WaPo article on Ernestine Shepard over the weekend? She’s a 74 year old female body builder. Maybe you know her? She’s a good female role model for those of us moving up in age a little more quickly than we’d like:

      Thanks!  And yes, I have heard of Ernestine Shepard before.  She’s a great example of the whole “no excuses” philosophy.

    How you didn’t either become a member or get kicked out of the zoo is beyond me.  Great video!
