Moments of Slow Burn Pain

Posted on April 17, 2009 by mrfreddy
Sometime in the future I’ll share my thoughts on and experiences with various forms of exercise, but for now I just wanted to post this video of myself in the throes of a slow burn workout, at Fred Hahn’s Serious Strength studio in Manhattan.

What you see is me reaching the moment of muscle failure on various machines. The slow burn approach uses weights that are heavy enough for you to reach failure within about a minute, so all you are seeing is the last 10 seconds or so of each exercise. I don’t know if you can tell from the video, but those final seconds are extremely unpleasant. It hurts like hell. Like motherfuckinggoddammitwhyamihereowwww hell.

But it’s safe, an it’s good for you.
