Denver Deadlift

It's been a busy couple of days in Denver. Yesterday was an off day, but today I was back and hitting the deadlift. Workout went like this.

1A) Deadlift
1B) Box Jump
1C) Pushups

2A) Kettlebell Swing
2B) L-Sit

3A) Leg Curl
3B) Shrug

Great times. Love a great deadlift day. It was powered by another big meal that I had last night with Joel Marion, Shaun Hadsall, Bedros Keuilian, Jeff Schneider, Nate Hopkins, and Bruce Krahn. I had the big porkchop again, along with baked potato, and a wagyu beef appetizer (where I got to cook it on my own little hot stone).

The whole gang is in town for Toys for Tots, and if you have a few extra dollars, we'd love for you to buy a toy for kids through your donations here:

Thank you. Every dollar helps!
Oh, and if you're ever in Denver, check this place out. Great shakes and salads and burritos.

On that nutrition note...

Pick a poison to eliminate from your life. Replace it with purity. Remove temptations and create better habits. Make the Right Decisions easier to make each day...Pay attention to what you do and how it makes you feel. Be mindful. It matters.

PS - Start here.

1st things first. Do what matters! Even if you don't feel like it...just give it 5 minutes. Plan your days for this. Prepare your world. Remove the temptations. Get accountability. Give yourself an incentive. Set a deadline. Get it done. You can do it....."First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do." - Epictetus.....Never give up on what is important to you. Plan and prepare for all of the holiday obstacles so that you stay strong and get stronger!

Deadlift days are always brutal for me, but they are great for developing some good overall strength!
