Today's Training Tip:
‎2 days in a row I've witnessed guys at the gym doing situps in a reverse hanging position on the back
extension. Do NOT do these. No matter what the benefits, it's not worth it. Even Svbraigz Von
CallEnsonn wouldn't put those in a program, and he's evil. You can get strong, sexy abs without
those...and other situp-like exercises.
Today I hit a good upper body workout, with a massive upper body warm-up preceding it. That helps
keep my shoulders save. More about that warm-up tomorrow.
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
No matter what happens in your life, you can turn pain into positive. Some of the greatest motivators
& helpers in the world (Oprah, Sean Stephenson, mothers who start foundations after their children
pass on too early) have transformed incredibly painful experiences into powerful messages and
positions that help millions of other people. We can do the same.
Be thankful for what you've accomplished. Always measure your progress against the past, not
against perfection or other people.
"You cannot brighten another's path without lighting your own." – Frank McKinney…Help someone
out today in the gym, or with their diet at work, or on FB or a fitness forum. The more you teach
others, the more that you yourself will understand.
Have a great weekend.
BTW, Bally the Dog has been dognapped by Svbraigz CallEnsonn and his evil henchman, Crog. But
don't worry, I am off to track him down.
Next week should be very interesting.
