March Madness Monster Mash
Here's March Madness Monster Mash.
M4 -- SEAL speak for so hard but fun workouts. Here's the deal, get your Perfect Pushups, kneepad or towel, and water positioned in front of your TV -- clear a path to your Perfect Pullup -- bring over only your truest friends -- have them sign a release from liability form so they can't sue you after they realize they can't move the next day! Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little here, but having a little peer pressure always makes a Monster Mash workout more fun (and yes, makes you more sore!)…here's how the M4 workout goes: dial in your favorite b-ball game and pick a team -- each time they score a basket you do same number of pushups per points -- every free throw is a pullup. Simple right?
Now -- how many games can you play -- that's the question?! Here's an example -- St. Mary's vs Baylor-- you've got a total of 4 guys in the room -- 2 match St. Mary's-- 2 match Baylor -- the real game is not who beats who on the court, it's who completed the most pushup and pullups -- now start to fill out brackets for each game, using the same teams, then tally up the total number of pushups and pullups performed -- bet what you want -- beer -- dollars -- apples -- don't care what it is, but make it meaningful enough to want to earn the bragging rights of winning the annual MARCH MADNESS MONSTER MASH!
BTW -- you don't have to stick with one pushup or pullup per point -- strong teams can collect more points doing more pushups and pullups: just don't burn yourself out, you never know how well your teams just might score! Now if you are looking for an even more hardcore workout, go to the Daily Workout blog and check out March Pushup Madness.

Alden Mills, creator of the Perfect Pushup, is CEO of Perfect Fitness, based in CA. Massachusetts born, Alden went to the Naval Academy where he went on to become a Navy SEAL. After retiring in 2000, he earned his MBA at Carnegie Mellon. As a SEAL Team TWO Platoon Commander, his platoon was chosen for a study to determine why SEALs suffered unusually high injury rates during their careers. After learning injuries were linked to their training methods (age-old body building drills), SEAL trainers switched to Functional Training. Alden learned firsthand the value of optimal exercise routines. Bottom line: if people can take control of their body, they can be more successful in everything they do. Mills turned this belief into a top fitness brand and revolutionized American fitness. His ultimate mission is to inspire everyone to pursue their own dreams.
