Friday Deadlifts and Motivation

Good deadlift session for me today. Now a week of easy training while traveling to the farm and then to Las Vegas. Today was deadlift, box jumps, front squat, good mornings, ab wheel.

As reported in the latest Men's Health magazine (the one with Ashton Kutcher on the cover), a research study found that doing 6 weeks of ab training did absolutely NOTHING for dropping belly fat. And these folks were doing 14 sets of abs, 5 days per week

Another cool little stat from Men's Health last month: Here's the 'percent of your body weight' that you are lifting when doing various pushups:
a) Kneeling pushup = 49% bodyweight
b) Regular pushup = 64% bodyweight
c) Decline pushup = 74% bodyweight

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Advanced results required advanced measures. Yet somedays it seems nobody understands this anymore. You have to do the work and you have to sacrifice.

Today's Tip:
Increasing your income, as I've said over and over again, is the single-most important factor in building wealth. – Mark Ford

The more specific your vision for your life, the closer you will get to achieving EXACTLY what you want in life.
