Working on the chain gang

Been slamming in some hours taking care of my growing training business. Lately it has been exponentially increasing and I couldn’t be happier for that.

Now if I could only perfect the art of time management because there aren’t enough hours in the day to get the shit I need to get done, finished.

Don’t forget we have that 10/20/30 sale going on until the end of the week. Now is a great time to outfit 65% of your wardrobe with 10/20/Life gear.


3/17 Lift:

Hip Belt Squat – worked up to 4 sets of 12 with 170. Ultra wide stance. Starting to improve my flexibility and depth with these plus they hammer the hell out of my legs.

Eccentric Lunges – tested these out today and I am impressed with how hard they work your quads and hips. 3 sets of 4 reps. I loaded up my hands with 62# KBs and lowered myself (eccentric) for a slow 5-6 seconds. Once I was in position I then exploded through and up. These pretty much sucked the soul out of my body.

After I picked my life off the floor I moved onto GHR. 4 shitty sets of 8 shitty reps… my lower body was shot and I then realized that I desperately need two things:

  1. to regain my athleticism at least a little bit
  2. a nice cold glass of green tea and a muffin

So I went to the coffee shop two blocks away, had my tea and muffin, came back and finished the workout.

Rack Rows were next. Worked up to 245 for 4 sets of 6. Easy.

Explosive Pull-ups. 10 sets of 2. 20 second break between sets.

Day over…

3/18 Lift.

Started off with the Shoulder shocker, that is a DeFranco thing. 4 sets of 12 for each movement; the movements are, DB Front Raise, DB Lateral, Seated DB Power Clean and Press. These burn… a lot.

Then onto my bells.

KB double hand outside the leg swings, 10 reps using 40’s, 53’s and then 62’s.

KB snatches using 40’s for 3 sets of 8.

KB snatch to press. 40’s for 3 sets of 8.

Finished off with a shitpile of DB Curls.

Enjoy your weekend, kids.
