Deadlift Your Dog to Work Day

Every Deadlift Day is a great day here in Canadia. And even better when it's a very special day like today. First the workout, and then I'll explain.

- Bird Dog with Abduction
- RKC Plank
- Lower body mobility
- Some yoga moves

1A) Hang Clean
1B) Mobility

2A) Deadlift - 3x3
2B) Box Jump

Followed that with a PB of 225x15 (overhand grip).

3A) BB Split Squat - 4x8
3B) Leg Curl - 4x12

Really pushed myself on the BB Split Squats, too.

Tomorrow will be a bench press workout and then a couple of days off. On Sunday I fly to Denver and have a lot of meetings on Monday and Tuesday, and it looks like we have a team bowling outing on Wednesday (to celebrate Canadia Day in America). Good times will be had by all.

But there's still one more special day to celebrate...

Happy "Take your dog to work day". Turns out ol' Bally the Dog is not much help. LOL! This is why I don't take him to work!

Yesterday was take your dog for an amazing sunrise walk.

TODAY is the first day of the rest of your life. So don't dwell on past mistakes because that will get you nowhere. Instead, focus on what you can and WILL do today, tomorrow, and the rest of your life, and all of the great things that will happen because of your actions. Don't wait for the 'time to be right' (i.e. until it's too late) to take action on your goals. If there's something you really want to do, then find a way to do it now. ... Here's a lil' pic of sunrise on the farm during my walk with ol' Bally the Dog.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
It's OK if you get off track once in a while. It's minor damage that can be dealt with. If one pound of fat is 3500 calories, you'd have to eat an extra 7 Big Mac's to gain a pound. That's an excessive amount of calories…so don't worry, you won't overeat by 7 Big Macs over the weekend. You won't really gain a pound of fat. Maybe you will eat a little more, but it's the salt and fluid retention that are showing up on the scale.

Just get back on track today, drink extra water, avoid sugar, salt and trans-fats today, use my short, burst workouts, and that weight will WHOOOOOSH right off of you. You'll be back on track in no time. And don't get hung up on the scale. No one knows your weight but you. All that matters is how you feel and perform, how your clothes fit, and how you confidently carry yourself.

Take a deep breath, forgive yourself the mistakes of the past, and let's move on to a better day today. Stay strong and push on, I know YOU can do it!

Pushing and pulling,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
