Monday and Sunday Deadlift

Enjoyed a nice Sunday morning deadlifting session in a relatively empty gym. That's the beauty of training on Sundays and staying out of the gym on Mondays, even though it seems the New Year's crowds have started to thin out at most places.

1A) Hang Clean
1B) Broad Jump

2A) Deadlift
2B) Broad Jump

3B) Military Press

Then a couple of challenges...

4) KB Snatch (35 lbs) - 31 reps per side (stopped without pushing too far because I could feel forearm soreness coming on)

5) BB Curl (45 lbs) - 35 reps (beating old record by 4 reps)

6) Level 20 on Stationary bike - 30 calories burned in one minute (supposably, not sure if its accurate, but it's reliable, because it is the bike I have used for all past challenges)

It was a long workout, but it was a nice open Sunday morning. To stay on track during the week, here's a secret I use:


Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Don't get upset by things you can't control. Just work on improving everything else. Keep moving ahead. Do the best you can do with what you have right now.

Push on,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT

PS - Monday!

Monday sets the tone for the rest of the week. Start it off the right way. Be productive, work hard, and do something to challenge yourself.

And remember…

Stressed? Just breathe. Ask yourself, will this matter in 3 hours, 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, 3 years? Breathe again. Deeply. One more. Good

Having a plan is one of the most important keys to successful fat loss. The less knowledgeable you are about exercise and diet, the more important this is.

When someone tells you it can't be done, it's more a reflection of their limitations, not yours.

If there is something you've been waiting to do, take at least one small step in that direction today.
