Deadlift and Take Action

After three days in cool Cleveland, I got back home last night around 7:30pm, but errands and putting stuff away kept me up late. I think that caused my workout to suffer today. I also didn't eat enough yesterday.

Although Friday I did. My real food dinner at Lola restaurant in Cleveland was their Rib eye + cauliflower side dish + mushroom side dish. One of our group got their "french toast dessert". While I didn't have any, everyone else loved it.

Today's Training:
Barbell Snatch - 3x5
Deadlift - 5x5
Military Press - 5x5
Pull-up - 3 sets 2 reps short of failure
Bulgarian Split Squat - Same as pullups

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
No matter how difficult your situation is right now, there has been someone, somewhere, in worse circumstances that was able to overcome their demons and go on to achieve the same – or even greater goals – than the ones you are pursuing right now. You must never, ever, ever give up on what is important to you.

“From this instant on, vow to stop disappointing yourself. Separate yourself from the mob. Decide to be extraordinary and do you what you need to do – now.” – Epictetus, The Art of Living

Wherever you are today, be present. Enjoy the people you are with, the food you are eating, the work you are doing, the weather you have, and the opportunities that exist.

“No one gets old by surprise.” – Kekich Credo #84 ….. We all have things we want to accomplish. We all have dreams and goals of a better life that we want to live. Yet for some of us, the steps we need to take to get there are always “put off until tomorrow”. Take action today!

Stay strong,
