- Expect no sympathy from Tabata Tod. Unless you fall over dead he is just going to tell you to quit being a wimp.
- Don't look Tabata Tod directly in the eyes. Treat him like you would a wild animal. Let him be in charge. It is just best that way.
- Do not say you like OR dislike an exercise. You are drawing attention to it no matter what you say. Be ambivalent.
- Become buddies with your fellow classmates. There is safety in numbers.
- All exercises start out easy. It is the repetition that kills. Take rests when Tabata Tod has his back to you.
- Practice passive-aggressive behavior. It is cathartic. For example, inadvertently drop your kettlebell right where Tabata Tod is going to walk.
- The lights are not flickering in the building. You got up too fast.
- Get mad. It really does help get through some of the more difficult exercises. Personally, I have a hard time with this, but when I do get mad...*POW*...I kick booty!
- Fight to the death not to have Tabata Tod as your partner for buddy exercises. Trust me on this one.
- Use your Tabata Tod Voodoo Doll. It helps.
Til Next Time,
