Day Off Today & TT Q'n'A

Here's a picture of my dog going crazy and trying to save me from the foam roller. I have no idea why he gets so excited about that thing, but he's terrified of it and trys to save me from it every time I use it. And by saving me, I mean jumping on me and licking my face. What a little stinker.

No workout today. Slept an extra half-hour. Feeling 90% recoverd from the sore throat. Barely notice it anymore.

Deadlifting tomorrow.

I did have a big boy salad today though...because it was eaten out of a big boy bowl.

Spinach, broccoli, red onion, mushrooms, avocado, cooked black beans, salsa

And now a little TT q'n'a for you:

Common question #1: I can't do single-leg squats. What exercises can I replace them with?


Great question.

You can use any single-leg exercise in place, such as (listed in order of least difficult to most):

a) Lying 1-leg hip extensions
b) Step-ups
c) Split Squats
d) Reverse Lunges
e) Forward Lunges
f) Bulgarian Split Squats

Common Question #2: Why do you have interval training after resistance training? Is it okay to do them before lifting?


Another great question.

If you want to do intervals first, you can, but just be conservative and don't expect to lift the same amount of weight or do the same number of reps as you would do if you left intervals till the end. Most people I train are weak, so we focus on strength first.

Let me know if you have any questions,
