Everyone wants immediate results and they wanted them yesterday. That’s why I came up with the following program. I was inspired while driving home and saw a sign posted outside our local sod farm – Sod Stacker Wanted.
My first thought was, “This is it! My big program that will put me in the upper echelon of trainers. You know, people like Jillian Michaels and Suzanne Somers.” See emoji to to the right. My second thought was, “If I were trying to lose fat fast, sod stacking would be the way to go.” My third thought was, “Our members would all be in amazing shape if I could get them to do my Sod Stacker Insanity Program.”
The program would be as follows:
- Wake up, eat protein and vegetables.
- Stack sod outside for four hours.
- Take thirty minute break to eat more protein, berries and nuts.
- Stack sod for four more hours.
- Go home and eat protein and vegetables.
Do this same routine for the next 5 days. Then take the weekend off.
Pros vs. cons of the Sod Stacker Insanity Program
- Sod stacking doesn’t require any equipment. If you don’t have access to sod you can use bricks, sandbags or whatever materials you have that can be stacked.
- Sod stacking requires musculature of the entire body, making it a fantastic “big bang for your buck’ movement for fat loss.
- Sod stacking can be learned quickly. Simply bend down, grab a few pieces of sod and stack it.
- Sod Stacker Insanity requires eight hours of commitment a day, five days a week.
- Sod stacking isn’t much fun.
Time commitment and enjoyment of the process are two critical factors that need to be determined prior to beginning a training program. Sod Stacking along with many activities can lead to fat loss, but at what cost?
This would be the small print at the bottom of the infomercial for Sod Stacker Insanity – Some of the symptoms of The Sod Stacker Insanity and The Sod Stacker Insanity x infinity can be, but are not limited to: Anger, grumpiness, skin cancer, boredom, missing your children grow up, divorce…..
If you aren’t enjoying the process the program is not sustainable. If a program requires an eight hour commitment and you only have three to four that you can commit, then it’s not sensible.
Doing something repetitively leads to change. Your ultimate rewards (losing fat, building strength, dropping inches) will come from when you do something repetitively with the proper intensity for as often as you can commit to doing it. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it’s sensible and sustainable.
