86 days left

86 days left in 2012. You can still achieve amazing results. You can still make dramatic improvements. You can still do SOMETHING. Start today. Let me know what you plan to do or if you need help getting started.

Don't wait to change. Don't wait until tomorrow. Just do it. It's less painful to do it than it is to sit around and think about it or feel guilty that you haven't started yet. Once you get started, things will get done and BIG results will come your way.

Identify what you want to change. Start working on it today. No excuses...If there is something you've been meaning to do, or someone you've been meaning to talk to, make today the day.

Today's workout for me: Hang Cleans, Deadlifts, Good Mornings, Shrugs.

Last week's workout: Driving on the Porsche test track in Leipzig, Germany. Apparently this makes me very, very angry.

Check out the photo that goes along with that last comment at You'll see my doctor friend Chris taking the photo, he's a real-life Doogie Howser. Looks 14, but is a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips and another photo:

PS - Make yourself happier today by picking up a small, meaningful, surprise gift for someone that matters to you.

Give a gift every day if you can (from a handwritten note, a surprise text, a book, a small treat, a hug, something, anything) that shows you care. It's the little things in life that matter. You know someone that needs love right now, so give it freely. It will all come back to you when you need it most.

Took the tail of your words.
I started with metabolic RT and started doing 10 reps and 3-4 sets:
dumbbell squat and press,
db renegade row,
lateral lunge to press,
db 1 arm snatch(right)
same with left hand

It seems to work my legs much, they seem bigger now, but I am not losing any weight. Do you think these exercises are good for losing weight?

Thanks in advance,
