    Good evening community,

    I know very similar questions have been asked as far as balancing other activities with SS. As I begin my journey into NLP, most of the podcasts and articles Iíve read seem to indicate to the SS work and other activities after. My apologies if this is covered in the book - Iím only 40 pages into it. If this is and the response is Ďread the bookí I accept my fate. Ha. Otherwise here goes.

    Hereís my predicament:
    I teach a class called Body Pump twos days a week on Tuesday / Thursday. Itís endurance based lifting, really watered down stuff; basically sets of 100 reps split across different songs and exercises. I DO NOT consider this a primary form of exercise for me. As the instructor, I try to keep my own personal level of fatigue to a minimum as I am there to coach it, however, I have to teach with enough weight they it appears I am working out with them. And it does generate some level of fatigue.

    The issue is I have is timing NLP with my pump classes. I work up until the moment before I teach my classes, so I canít do my NLP before teaching Body Pump. My original idea was to do it Monday/Wednesday/Friday and take Saturday and Sunday completely off. However, I feel the pump classes in between the SS sessions will be just a touch too much as far as volume and fatigue management.

    I am not a complete rank novice in terms fitness and gym exposure, but I am definitely still a novice as it it pertains to SS. Iíve had a workout routine prior, but it was too broad and not focused. Even though Iíve spent years in the gym, I do not consider myself intermediate. I want to do only SS and my 2 pump classes per week. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I used to kill Golden Retriever puppies for a living. I didn't really have anything against Golden Retrievers, it was just my job, so I had to figure out the best way to do it. I strangled them with my hands, because it was fast, quiet, and required no other tools that could potentially hurt me (can't have that!). I would then use the meat for protein supplementation, so there was less waste. Over time I developed a method by which each puppy could be dispatched with a combination of strangulation and a C2 fracture, so that the process only took about 10 seconds per puppy. My primary concern was that I didn't fatigue my hands, or otherwise hurt them, to the point that it affected my training. I think I solved the problem nicely.

    You'll have to do the same with your Body Pump class -- get a fake "barbell" to use at the front of the class, figure out a way to only do about 10% of the reps the poor fools in the class have to do with your unweighted fake barbell, and just hope no one finds out that you're making them do this stupid shit without actually harming yourself in the process. Don't worry about the deception, because it's only a job.

    Hope this helps!!

    Robert, why do you do the exercises you proctor while proctoring them? Are you there to work out or to work?

    "In his early life, Mark Rippetoe worked as a puppy strangler..." followed by a source link to the forum post.

    That was a rather comical response but it actually drives the point home rather well. Thank you to all who took the time to respond to the thread. Hope everyone has a good Xmas Season and New Years.
