Deadlift Workout & Phone Calls

Two big phone calls today...I'll be interviewing Bill Phillips tonight, and Scott Sonnon later this afternoon. Should be interesting.

My training today:

1A) Jumps
1B) Sumo Deadlift

2A) BB Lunge
2B) Glute Ham Raise

3A) Shrugs
Stability Ball Plank

Now for two great resources.

First, mandatory reading from Jason Ferruggia about taking time off and "deloading":

=> The Proper Way to Take Time Off & Deload

And second, more wisdom from a TT Contest winner, including the value of social support, attitude, motivation, and getting momentum going

=> Transformation Contest Success Tips

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

"Keep these concepts in mind: You've failed many times, although you don't remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned
the first time you tried to swim. Don't worry about failure. My suggestion to each of you: worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try."
Sherman Finesilver

Stay outta trouble,

Deloading seems very similar to what endurance athletes call a recovery week. Build for a # of weeks then take a structured easy week to allow the body to adapt.
