Today's workout was a 5x5 bench press workout, and I have a great free audio interview for you as well...
I really whipped through this workout...
1A) Bench (5x5)
1B) External Rotations (3x10)
2A) Overhead Squat (3x3)
2B) Wide Grip Seated Row (3x12)
3A) Close-Grip Pushups (4x25)
3B) DB Curls (4x8)
And the other night I was chilling at home (see the photo above for the cool view from my living room) and I interviewed my friend John Romaniello about fat loss, nutrition, bodyweight training, and more. You can listen here:

And today's controversial kick-butt mind-set tip that I posted on Facebook was...
Just as important as social support is removing all negative influences in your life. This may be painful. You might not want to give up hanging out with lazy friends that eat junk all the time, but if it is making you fat and unhappy, it MUST stop. Same with work. If all co-workers do is sit round and complain, then you can't be in that environment at lunch, coffee break, etc. Get out & save yourself!
But to clear up some confusion...
This doesn't mean you can't hang around people who have a bad diet...it just means that if you want to lose fat, you can't put yourself in situations where other people suck you into eating bad food and losing track of your goals.
Most importantly, if you hang around negative people who want you to fail, you have to drop them from your life. That's the point.
