CSD StrongDad Program: Dec. 22, ’13 – Flashback To Jake “The Snake” Roberts

JakeTheSnake

I can’t kick it about my workout, because I was just excited about the song that popped up on my playlist while I was training. I wasn’t expecting Jake The Snake’s theme song to come on as I was getting ready for a set of dips, but boy did that get me hyped for my set!

Piledriver

I was a big wrastlin’ fan in the ’80’s (along with my cousin Heavy T) and Jake’s DDT was one of my favorite finishing moves. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of anyone who had a quicker move than he did. The Pile-Driver was fast. The Figure-Four took too long to set up and flying off the rope was risky and took forever as well. But the DDT could be slapped on an opponent immediately.

So yes, I had a quick workout today. You can see that below.

But check out the following vids and go back in time with me! And if you like, let me know your favorite “finishing move” in the comments section.

 

Anybody remember Saturday Night Main Event? I enjoyed this more than any Monday Night Football game (okay, except for maybe the ’85 Bears vs. Dolphins).
