10th workout of the year, 1/24/2011.

Jack LaLanne, the great fitness icon passed away Sunday at 96 years of age. Many people know him as the old guy with the juicing machine.

He was much more than that.

He was a real role model to millions.

He was an original.

Last year I decided to do a tribute to him with a “chair workouts” as he sometimes utilized chairs as a simple exercise tool.

I repeated the chair workout a few months later…and made it harder.

Today we did another chair workout.

And with total respect to the man that inspired the workout…this one is the hardest.
