Squatting in Canadia and Bodyweight in Lithuania

Boom. Back under the bar today at my gym in Canadia.

Last barbell session before a trip to Toronto for the weekend (Lakers-Raptors game on Sunday) and then heading to Tampa next week (will train at PowerHouse Gym with Big Ben Pakulski - hopefully).

Today's training:

1A) Squats (5-3-1)
1B) Burpees (just 4 reps for explosiveness, not fatigue)

2A) Bench Press
2B) Good Morning

3) DB Chest Press Rest-Pause

Pretty good times.

Now it's time to take Bally to the kennel.

Oh, and some BIG news if you are under 25 and ambitious!

Dates for the 2014 have been set. We'll be back in Lithuania Aug 7-11th! We'll even do some bodyweight training after the daily business sessions.

This is where Matt Smith and I met Gary, one of our really important Early to Rise team members. If you - or your kids are ambitious - be there! For folks 25 and under only. Great times!
