Countdown Training

Tons of amazing content from the 1st ever TT Summit (including bootcamp workouts) now available in online video format for you here.

My training today: Pullups, Pushups, Rack Lockout, SnatchGrip Barbell Row, Triceps Extensions, Fat Grip Barbell Curls.

A countdown ladder for you. Start at 15 reps per exercise and work your way down to 1 rep, resting as little as possible between exercises. Kettlebell Swings + Pushups (use decline pushups to make it harder). Follow with a quick running warm-up, and then three running intervals of 30 seconds separated by 60 seconds of rest, and then if possible, three 45-second intervals on the bike with 45 seconds of rest. Your shirt will be soaked by then.

Today's Kick Butt Tip:
Success is simple once you realize how difficult it is. Then you know how much effort, honesty, responsibility, long-range planning, creativity, intensity, discipline, thought and control the process is going to take. It is not easy. It is not going to happen overnight. Only once you accept that will you succeed.

"Motivation gets you started; habit keeps you going." - Jim Ryun. If you miss a day of good habits, get back on track as quickly as possible. The more frequently you do something, the better the chance you will stick with it. Stick to your good habits while traveling, when you're busy, and during tough imes...eventually they will become strong habits and easier and easier for you to follow.

"Never give up, for that is just the place & time that the tide will turn." - Harriet Beecher Stowe

People want to follow and learn from passionate people. So become the most passionate, enthusiastic person in your area of expertise, let it show, and people will come to you.
