Deadlifts and benches and bodyweight reps

Today was a big workout. I only go to a 'real' gym twice a week now, and so I have to take advantage of everything that is there that is not in my lil' gym in the garage. Decent amount of critical pullup and burpee reps to add to the 33,333 challenge today.

742 reps total

300 squats
320 pushups
52 pullups
70 burpees


1A) Deadlift 3x5, 3x3
1B) Bench Press 3x5, 3x3

Great times. Hour workout. Then off to the health food/grocery store for organic meat and veggies plus some hazelnut butter. I use nut butters as salad dressing. Lately I've been having salads of:
- spinach
- baby kale
- broccoli
- sliced peaches
- some nuts
- drizzled with nut butter

It's like a dessert salad, which is much better than a desert salad.

No excuse 4-min workout for today:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Forgive yourself for the mistakes of the past and smile at past struggles. They are what have made you the stronger person that you are today. Keep on pushing on, positively. Persevere on what is important to you. You are getting closer - and better - and stronger - everyday.


"Success is simple once you accept how hard it is"...Once you accept how difficult it's going to be only then will you be mentally willing to accept the challenges that it will require, such as sacrifice, dedication, preparation, planning, honesty, and perseverance.

Once you accept that, then it's a simple process of doing the work and going through your transformation. You just put your head down and do it.

Use my 5 Pillars for Success: Lean on your social support, get accountability, plan and prepare, give yourself an incentive, and set a deadline. Stay strong and keep on pushing on! You CAN do it!

Keep going,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
