Denver Deload

I'm in the middle of a deload off-week from heavy barbell training, and it worked out perfectly because I'm flippin and a floppin between hotels, airports, cities, and home.

Sunday was SD to DVR, two different hotels there, airport now on the way from DVR to CLV "Home of King James", and then a budget hotel for 3 nights at a Dan Kennedy seminar, and then finally CLV-TO on Saturday night before a 90 minute drive back to the farm.

Today was a fun upper body, low-intensity workout. Tomorrow will be the same for lower body. Yesterday, Friday, and Saturday are walking days. And then on Sunday it's back to the squat rack. Looking forward to it. Making some progress on the Big 3 lifts, although not as fast on deadlift as I'd like.

This morning's session at the JW Marriott in Denver was:

1A) Max Pushups - 51 straight
1B) Face Pulls

2A) DB Chest Press
2B) Pullup or Chinup

3A) DB Chest Supported Row
3B) Bike Intervals

And here's a random odd tip...I actually follow this, accidentally, because I like to face the sunrise.

"Face east if you want to build chi, or internal energy. According to ancient Chinese teaching, you absorb chi when you face east during meditation breathing exercises."

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

When you are down, give. When you are frustrated, make someone else better. When you struggle, help others. The fastest way to patch a hole in your heart is by brightening someone else's day. Give, help, love, and share. Make the world better and heal yourself.

Push on,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
