Deadlifts, More Pullups & Books

Yesterday I walked the dog 3 times, went to my chiropractor, drove 2 hours, went out to lunch with a friend, did an unscheduled hill sprint workout, and still managed to read 2 and 1/3 books. More info about those in a second...

This morning's workout was:

1A) Deadlifts
1B) Jumps

2) Barbell split squats

3A) Back extensions
3B) Power shrugs.

I didn't have a blender drink today after the workout. Instead I had oatmeal with a banana, almonds, and milk, and an apple and a pear. All in non blended form.

Today's resource:

The most common question I get in Q'n'A is how to improve pullups and chinups, so heres' the best resource:

Today's Kick-butt mindset tip:

"Work with what comes your way. Things turn out the best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out."

And now for my updated book list...

First, I read a real short book (takes about 15 minutes) called, "The Vikings Guide to Doing Business". It's actually translated from an old 13th century text.

Second, I read 1/3 of a book called, "Fascinate". It's a study of how leaders and companies develop a strong following.

And third, iif you liked the book, "The Shack", you will also enjoy, "Life's Golden Ticket" by Brendan Burchard. I read it yesterday in about 90 minutes.

Looks like more reading today because it's raining...or maybe I'll watch the Champion's League final, even though I have no interest in either team.

Have a great day,

Craig - Ever read The Art of Expressing the Human Body by Bruce Lee and John Little? I just started it and am LOVING it. Seems right up your alley.
