    I watch people at the gym do these so badly, nowhere near the ground. Chest. Must. Hit. The. Floor.
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    Also, dead lift burpees, tremendous. On this occasion chest to the floor is not required as you're using the bar to hold onto.

    This. There are not words profane enough to describe these.

    Ooooo sounds... "fun". ("Fun" is a Crossfit word for torture.) How do you do them? Do you jump at the top of the deadlift?

    There is one amazing thing about burpees.

    This video: Fitness - Boot Camp Workout 1: Burpee's Exercise - YouTube

    I could watch it all day. Probably NSFW.

    Lol.
    It's a gut check, but more from an endurance standpoint.
    I'm used to doing lots of pushups from my karate days.
    I do them using gymnasts rings with my feet elevated a couple of times a week, so the standard pushups aren't nearly as hard.
    Took some time to get there, but it was worth the effort.
