Late workout

I'm switching over to afternoon workouts for the next couple of days. Did lots of pulldowns and rows yesterday, and will be hitting the Atlanta Gold's Gym later today for bench press.

Training Tips:

Did you know that you should be able to do a plank for 2 minutes straight? Dr. McGill's research shows that a 2 minute plank is associated with a lower risk of low back pain. And a side plank should be done for 90 seconds per side.

How to choose workout finishers

And if you had just a kettlebell and 10 minutes, what would your workout be? Mine would be snatches, sets of 10, minimal rest, as many sets in 5-7 minutes, then remainder of the time doing swings supersetted with overhead press. I've never enjoyed the kb clean and press.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

Demand more of yourself.

Today's quote:
"The individual who aspires to great wealth by creating products and services people want is not the cause of America's problems, but, rather, the solution
to its problems. When an individual focuses on hard work, resourcefulness, and wealth creation — and is willing to take risks — it puts him in a position to
achieve the same American Dream that millions of wealthy people have experienced through their own efforts." – Robert Ringer
