Pump Paradise and Perfect Productivity

Wow. Meathead Pump Paradise. Just finished an upper body TT Meathead program down at the local YMCA. Ran into an old high school teacher that asked me to speak at a small business meeting in June. Should be fun.

Today's a beautiful day in our little Victorian city and buses filled with high school-aged students from Toronto were circling the city looking for parking spots as English teachers brought the kids to our world-famous Shakespearean Festival theater. It's always a pleasure to see so many visitors enjoying our city.

But dang, it was cold this morning when ol' Bally the Dog and I went for our 6:30am walk. I had to wear gloves and my two sweatshirts weren't enough.

Fortunately I got warmed up with a big breakfast and then this:

Band Pull

1A) Bench Press
1B) BB Row

2A) Pullups
2B) Military Press

3) BB Curl Personal Best - 65x21 reps

Then some work meetings and now a day of writing, email, and reading.

Later on a dog walk, and then a comfort food dinner of meatloaf and mashed potatoes...and some superfoods, like spinach, beets, and cauliflower.

Perfectly productive day on the Farm following the 3-C formula.

Control what you can.
Cope with what you can't.
Concentrate on what counts.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
If it were do or die, you'd be able to stick to your workout program. Imagine you had to go to jail if you skipped your workout to sit on the couch instead. How many workouts do you think you'd miss? You'd be able to stick to your diet if you had to pay me $500 every time you fell off the plan. If you had to lose 5 pounds in 10 weeks or lose your job, you could do it. You just need to find compelling motivation to stick to your plan. Keep working to find that internal inspiration so that you can put a little more urgency into your body transformation program. Get out of your comfort zone and put that pressure on. Plan. Focus. Take Action. Set Deadlines. Hit Them. And then...Reward Yourself. You CAN do it. I believe in YOU.

Push on with the formula,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
