Black Friday... the official start to the holiday buying season. Love it or hate it, you can guarantee turning on the nightly news and seeing people cart out enormous TVs, home appliances, etc. We've devised this PATHFINDER workout to give you that rush-the-store dopamine hit without ever spending a dime at a big box store!

You will need two weights. They do not have to be the same weight or type - just something challenging you can carry overhead. Ideally, you can use kettlebells or dumbbells, but this workout is flexible enough to use other heavy or awkward implements, like a ruck plate, weighted ammo can, or water jugs. If you choose to use different sized weights, be sure to alternate between them.

This workout begins and ends with a 1 mile run. I know I'm going to get flack on this, but IDC. You don't have to be able to run 1 full mile continuously in order to still get this done. Don't let perfectionism get in the way of good enough.

One final note: When you can, shop local and small businesses! Small online companies like PATHFINDER and small local businesses in your community are often tiny, one-of-a-kind companies run by entrepreneurs whose livelihood depends on supplying you with continued unique offerings you can't find anywhere else.
