My backyard training today out on the farm was kettlebell presses, trx rows, kettlebell front squats, trx Ys and Ts, trx triceps extensions, kb shrugs, and some sprints.
But not too many sprints, after all, too 'much' is part of the #1 interval training problem you MUST avoid:
While I was training, I was thinking...What superhero would be best at the Tough Mudder race?
So I asked the only man who would know, my friend John Romaniello (Roman).
He said, "I think it's obviously Superman, since he can fly through the course, or use super-speed if he didn't," but he also added, "that said, speaking only of people without super powers, I'd love to see Batman, Daredevil, and Punisher compete in it."
There you go. The final word on the best Superhero for the Tough Mudder race.
But since you're just a normal Men's Health-reading human like me, here's an article for you. How to train for a tough mudder:

Q: Do you have any suggestions when it comes to putting a business proposal together?
Be clear and concise. Although, frankly, I've never done a business proposal...and I don't think I've ever met anyone who has done one except in their college marketing classes. All the successful entrepreneurs I know just do it. They don't spend time on proposing that they do it. Make sure this is necessary before you do it. Also, you should pre-order Michael Masterson's book, "The Reluctant Entrepreneur".
Q: Hi Craig, how do you deal/work with people who do not want you to succeed if you are forced into working with them by your employer?
Treat people with respect and live by example. That's all you can do. Be the best person you are capable of. What they think/want is irrelevant. And work as hard as possible to get yourself out of that situation. Never speak bad of them, but like any negative situation in life, you must find a way to remove yourself from it in the most positive way possible.
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Sometimes the most important thing for success is to simply stay out of negative environments. Rather than trying to do a million things perfectly every day to move yourself ahead, sometimes it's more important to just make sure that you don't put yourself in any negative environments or around temptations. Strong and Steady wins the race. Keep yourself away from temptations that can set you back. Stay strong. Keep steady.
"Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human." - Anthony Robbins

My new favorite website is www.wine.com. Might go broke ordering bottles for friends...but more importantly, there are many great internet marketing lessons to learn from the site. Oh, and did I mention the wine?
