The Shamrock Shake Workout Will Make You Glad This Magical Time Comes But Once a Year
100 pull-ups, 200 sit-ups in fewer than five minutes, an “Assault Bike”—these are the things we do for delicious green milkshakes.
You may remember the Reebok wine workout video we posted recently on Food & Wine's Facebook, in which bottles are used as weights to remind you that every arm raise makes the future taste of alcohol that much sweeter. Well, the wonderful sadists over at Reebok CrossFit ONE have just unveiled a new routine, and this one aims to offset the impressive 820 calories in a McDonald's Shamrock Shake. If you’d like to recreate it, we’ve listed the punishing routine below. If you’d rather split your Shake into 365 servings and freeze for single-bite, zero-pull-up enjoyment for the rest of the year, we won’t blame you. Or find a happy balance: drink it and watch videos of people doing these workouts.
