“If people knew how hard I worked to achieve my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.” – Michelangelo

Written by someone recognized as one of the greatest artists of time.

“Natural born talent” is a myth. Movies portray it, sports news glamorizes… the “uncontrollable factor” that leads to such heights of achievement. Yet here he is, Michelangelo himself, expressing his backbone to success.

It’s easy to believe that we can’t control tomorrow. To believe that it is by chance. It’s far harder to believe that it is within our capabilities. That there is another level of true grit and unrelenting effort we can choose to go. It’s realizing that the great Michaelangelo simply worked his ass off… and that we can too.

Greatness is never by chance. It is always by choice. The choice to do the work.

“Double Pits To Chesty” (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)

“Double Pits to Chesty”


40 Double Unders

20 Push-ups

10 Toes to Bar

*Score: Rounds + Reps
– Conditioning Category: Threshold

– Double Unders: Completed in 1:00 or less.

– Push-Ups: Completed in 1:30 or less. Elbows should fully lockout at the top. Chest Should hit the floor at  the bottom.

– Toes To Bar: Completed in 1:00 or less.

– All of these movements have the capability of stopping forward progress in the workout.

– Let’s pick one movement that is a non-negotiable unbroken movement. For most athletes, that is going to be the double unders or toes to bar.

– Most athletes are going to need a few breaks on push-ups so some options there are 12-9, 8-7-5, 5’s, 4’s, or 3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2.

– The movement you didn’t declare as your unbroken movement can be planned base off your push-up strategy. Throw a break or 2 in there if you feel it will help you stick to your push-up sets.
