I am taking Progenex Recovery and I love the effects. I feel like it restores my muscular system immediately. My ability to workout even on days when I should be demolished is exactly what I’m looking for.
I take a scoop of the Progenex Recovery powder immediately after a workout. It makes me feel like I’m taking care of my body. I’m ready to go to the next day even when I should be wrecked.

Rob Orlando Inspiration:
My inspiration comes from my members. I’m constantly motivated by how much they give of themselves on a daily basis. They go to the well often and they dig deep. How can you not be inspired by that?

Typical Training Week:
Monday I do something hard. Tuesday I do something REALLY hard…oftentimes doubling or tripling up on WODS. Wednesday I do something hard and it oftentimes includes some running. Thursday I work out with my buddies at Hybrid and we crush something hard. Friday is a rest day…sometimes. Saturday is my fun day at Hybrid. I kill a workout with my four-year-old son, Logan. Stones, yoke, squats, kegs…anything goes. Sunday is a rest day.
My Monday workout was 175 stone to the shoulder x 8 reps, 16 burpees. 240 stone to the shoulder x 4 reps, 8 burpees. 265 stone almost to the shoulder x 2 reps, 4 burpees. Time was 4:10. Saturday’s workout was 21-15-9 Backsquat and Strict Pull-ups…time was 13:40.

Questions from our readers online.
Question: What is one tip Rob Orlando has for getting strong? Rob told me to put a barbell in my garage with 50% of my dead lift. Every time I go by it – lift it once. Next week increase to 55 or 60%. Overtime build that up. You will get much stronger picking up heavy things over time.
