Bench at Fit Athletic

"He, who plans the transactions of the day, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of the most busy life," said Victor Hugo. Script your day as much as possible so you can leave work on time, without phone calls, meetings, or repetitively email checking keeping you working late into the night.

Plan your work and work your plan, as a mentor of mine, Nido Qubein, said.

Have a plan for your meals and a plan for your workouts.

Today I planned to hit Fit Athletic before a busy day of coaching calls and teaching at a 1-day Mastermind in San Diego.

The upper body modified meathead program went like this:

1B) Pushups

2A) Bench
2B) T-Bar Row (great pump!)

3A) Incline Bench
3B) Pullups

4A) Dips
4B) BB Curls (at the bench press, not in the squat rack)

45 minutes. Good times.

Two days off and then back in for Deadlifts later this week...that's the focus of the next 12 weeks for my 23rd TT Transformation Contest.

Now for calls and then breakfast with Breadros.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
To win your day, be prepared with a battle plan. To control your diet, plan, shop, and prepare your food. To own your mornings, do the first things first and don't let anyone get in your way. It is all within your control. Leave nothing up to others. Identify every obstacle in your way and create two solutions for each. Always be prepared. Know who you can contact for support in times of trouble. Know what you must do. Know what you can do. And then have the will to do it. Success is our responsibility. It lives and dies with us. No one else can – or will – do the work for us. If it is to be, it's up to me. <= #truth … Never give up on what is important to you. You will achieve it. Know that you can. Know that you will. And be prepared for everything.

Get planning and prepping,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
