Excellent deadlift workout this AM. It was a busy gym, with some of those young whipper-snappers hogging all the racks with their crazy circuit training.
Listen, I get it, I understand the point of the training. But it would benefit everyone if you could spare a little room for the rest of us. Thanks kiddos!
After that, I walked the dog and then just finished up a power interview with Eric Cressey for the TT Certification and TT Secret Society August newsletters.
We covered a ton of info in just over 45 minutes. That was an efficient interview at its best. Looking forward to what the TT Trainers think of that one.
Later today I'll be doing some planning for another big August journey to Europe, similar to last year (Lithuania, Poland), but this year it will be Lithuania, Norway, Denmark.
Here's a complete summary of last year's trip PLUS 10 travel tips for staying lean on the road. Check out this massive free report here

Also received some great TT Feedback on the Turbulence Training Facebook Page today:
"Week 3 of TT the Bodyweight/Dumbbell Fusion Intermediate workout has begun with a great workout today. Added reps to the bodyweight exercises really intense workout. Now time to refuel my body. Received kudos for getting the "cut" look so far so good. Looking to continue to challenge myself at the gym." - Femi Sasona
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
"Worrying is praying for what you don't want." – Bhagavan Das.
So focus your mind on what you want, not what you don't want. Whatever you focus on, you tend to get - good or bad.
And today's Independence Tip:
Never underestimate the influence you can have on people you have never met...even if they live halfway around the world. Choose your words - and actions - carefully.
PLUS, a powerful article I wrote on the Independence Mindset:
