Shake your rump

On account of my iPod’s convalescence, I borrowed Steve’s iPod for today’s lifting workout. When I sat down at the leg-press machine, I cycled through the list of artists, desperately searching for my standard pump-up tunes. I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw Wu-Tang Clan.

But then, I found something even better.

There it was, for the first time since that dance in seventh grade: Rump Shaker, by Wrecks-N-Effect. It was like meeting up with a skanky but encouraging old friend, and it powered me through not only the leg presses, but several sets of walking lunges with 25-pound dumbells — a big upgrade from my usual 20-pounders, which are typically more than enough to get me huffing and puffing.

Download this (or dig it up off some mixed tape) before your next workout. I promise you won’t regret it.

    OMG that was so funny! I won’t lie, couldn’t exactly remember the song so i went to itunes for some help. I started laughing when the free 30 second clip started. Jim overheard and said “8th grade”.

    OMG – I know exactly what song you’re talking about. I used to love that song. I heard that song “Now that we found Love” (I think it might be by Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch, but I’m not entirely sure) the other day and I blurted out to Bri, “6th grade.” Funny how we associate songs with periods/grades in our life.

    Wow!!! What a blast from the past! I’m so putting that song on my ipod. Love the analogy that the song is like a “skanky but encouraging old friend.” Sheesh, you must be a writer or something! Haha.

    And talking about kicking it “old school” I will forever think of my friend Amy when I hear “Woo…Yeah…Woo….Yeah….it takes two to make a thing go riiiiight….”

    Holla Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock (I TOTALLY had to look that up by the way…..)hehe
