Deadlift before the big city with coach

I won't be getting much done today due to travel. I'm heading from the farm to the big city, so I hit the gym early today.

This was week 2 of my current program. I did bench and deadlift to cut down on the number of times I need to go to an actual gym. I can do the assistance stuff at home.

1A) Long Jump
1B) Trap Bar DL

2A) Hang Clean
2B) Bench

3B) OH Squat

It's great to have your coach waiting at the bottom of the stairs for you every's not so great when you almost lose "Coach" in the wheat field because he was chasing varmints. Good ol' Coach...always getting into misadventures. Ha!

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Be ProActive. That is a behind-the-scenes secret of a British Gentleman. He plans and prepares, and always has 2 charming solutions to every obstacle.

ProActive means that when there is a problem, you are working to solve the problem in every which way you can...and also keeping the lines of communication open.

That's what we need to do every day going forward. Be ProActive. Put that on a sticky on your computer during your workday.

Whatever is in your way, you're stronger than it, you're tougher than it, and you're better than it. You're going to beat it.

Push on,
