Very inspiring...and it got me thinking about how to make the new TT Hardcore 2K10 program even better...you'll probably see an interval program similar to the one I did today:

Today's workout: Dog walk, stretching, 10 sprints of 24 seconds with 36 second recovery. More stretching. That's it.

Today's Blender Drink comes in 2 versions...the "beginner's version" without any funky ingredients, and the "health freak version" that contains weird

Beginner: Raspberries, strawberries, 1 banana, 2 cups 1% milk, cashew butter
Weird version: All of the above plus spinach, flax oil, and sesame seeds.

And some good resources for you to check out:

And finally, today's kick-butt mindset tip:

Kekich Credo #47 - "The right thing is usually not the easy thing to do. You may sacrifice popularity for rightness, by you'll lose self-esteem for wrongness. Don't be afraid to say no."

Be strong,

Hi Craig !
I'm a faithful reader of your blog, although this is my first comment (yeah !), and i'm not a customer (bouh !). But I often "steal" your philosophy and advices for my own workouts (bouh again !) ;-)

Congrats to the contestants, it's impressive, as usual ;)

I had a question about the abs video you posted on Facebook yesterday (3 favorites). Do you ever try the "pike" version of the swiss ball jackknife ? It's one of my favorites, I find it more challenging than your version.

(sorry for my english, i'm French)

Keep the good work ;)
