Tomorrow I’m off to Michigan to film workouts at Certified Turbulence Trainer Brian Kalakay’s gym. Mike Whitfield will be joining me. It’s going to be tough, but fun. Over 51 interval workouts to film in three days.

Good times.

Until then, let’s talk strength.

Here’s a good 1RM estimation equation from Jim Wendler and his 5-3-1 program:

1RM = weight x reps x .0333 + weight

So 200×5 reps = 233 pound 1RM.

In my experience, the accuracy is best for bench & DL, and decent for squat.

Today’s Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Having a hangdog, woe-is-me look and whining whimper only works for puppy dogs – not for humans. In fact, humans with this attitude repel other humans. No one wants to be around that type of person. So unless you are one of my four-legged friends, change your attitude, get your swagger back, take action, add value, live by example, and attract other good people into your life.

If you fear something, start taking baby steps to overcome it…a baby step that moves you positive results in the right direction.
