Monday Maximus

Today's a travel day from the farm to Toronto. I'll stay overnight there and then catch a morning a flight to Tampa.

After a trip to Whole Foods and the mall (to get some new trainers), I'll head to the Gulf Coast for some Joel Marion-family hospitality. There will be a huge group of us fitness experts getting together this weekend for Joel's annual Superbowl party. Vinny D, Flavia, Mike Geary, Shaun & Karen Hadsall, Roman (hopefully), and many others will be there. Always great times with the fitness crew, letting loose.

Yesterday I had a great squat workout at the local YMCA.

1A) Squat
1B) Prisoner Squat Jump

2A) Good Mornings
2B) Barbell Lunges

Then a 1-minute stationary bike interval "Calorie Maximus" challenge. In one minute at Level 19 the machine reported that I burned 26 calories. I have no idea how accurate that is...but it gives me a benchmark. Legs were tired yesterday, and are sore today. I know the worst is yet to come.


Today was a TT Meathead upper body garage gym workout.

1A) DB (Powerblocks) Press
1B) DB Rear-Delt Raise
1C) DB Shrug

2A) DB Incline Press
2B) DB Chest-Supported Row

3A) DB Lateral Raise
3B) DB Farmer Walk

Yoga stretches to finish.

Now it's time to hit the the car...but not for cardio...because...

Cardio sucks! Find out why and then give these free, short burst fat burners a try instead:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
It's okay if yesterday wasn't perfect. You did not fail. You learned valuable lessons. You had small victories. It wasn't nearly as bad as you think. So get over it. Move on. Realize there is nothing you can do to change the past, only the present and the future.

Identify ways to do what is right in tough circumstances and similar situations that caused you trouble yesterday. Have multiple solutions for every obstacle in life and you will find your way over or around them, you will hold strong under temptation, and you will stay strong and do what is right even when going wrong is the easy way out.

You are better today because of what happened yesterday, and you'll be better tomorrow and closer to your big goals and dreams because of the new plans and preparations you put in place today.

Stay strong and keep on pushing on, getting better every day,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
