I picked up the January issue of Men’s Health in the dentist’s office this morning (because Matt Damon was on the cover) and found this inside:
Hey there, Captain Zach!
I can’t find this image large enough to read text, so let me tell you what it says:
- Zach Parise can hold a lunge for five minutes.
- Over the course of the particular training program mentioned, he barfed three times.
- Barfing does not at all deter from the attractiveness of a man who can hold a lunge for five minutes.
- Wait, I said that last part.
I try to picture myself holding a lunge for five minutes – at the one minute mark I’d fall over and lay frozen on the gym floor, laughing hysterically at my own rigor mortis.
More on Parise’s workout routine from Sports Illustrated, with video in which he looks suitably miserable. That’s our kind of tough guy. Zach gets an open invitation to join our next Tough Mudder team.
We won’t tell chocolate milk if he drinks that free beer at the end.
