The California Tech Sponsored Workout

As your friendly neighborhood former Dabney Athman, I have a great passion for trying to get people to go to the gym. As part of these efforts, I would like to give you a nice example workout.

Dumbbell Bicep Curls with Static Hold

- This exercise will help give you the strength to hold a newspaper for the prolonged time it will take you to read it

Farmers Carries

- A classic exercise that will prepare you for hauling 200 newspapers through a cold Boston morning to deliver The Tech

Push Ups

- My number one exercise, pop a copy of The Tech in front of you while you do them to remind you of proper form keeping your head in line with your spine.


- This one has nothing to do with The Tech I just like making people suffer

Warm Up:

  • Arm circles 10 seconds each direction
  • 1min jumping jacks
  • 30s arm swings

Cool Down:

  • Do some static stretches to cool down, then grab a copy of The Tech and read through it for good measure.
