Sunday Squats and Saturday Walks

Sunday, what a Sunday. There was the epic Wimbledon final, highlights from some crazy UFC fights, and plenty of time reading and hanging out with ol' Bally the Dog.

Oh, and there were squats. This was workout #1 of a new program that I'll finish up right before I head to Europe on August 1st.

1A) BB Squat Jumps – 5x5
1B) Mobility moves

2A) Squat – 5x5
2B) Box Jump or Mobility moves

3A) Leg Curl
3B) Front Squat – 3x10

I was whooped after that. Including my big warm up and a bike ride to and from the gym, it was nearly a 2-hour tour. Fortunately we did that nice and early so I was still home by 10am and in time to catch the end of the tennis match. You never know when it might be Federer's last final. Lots of other good stuff on the weekend too. For science nerds, I stumbled across this study that gives me a great idea for some upcoming TT programs.

Here's a picture of Saturday's 6am sunrise during a 6 mile morning walk with ol' Bally the Dog. We'll do a 4-mile walk today. No workout planned.

The rest of today will be a busy workday out on the farm. There will be lots of skyping, Google Hangouts, and conference calls. Tomorrow is a writing day. Wednesday is a coaching day. And then Thursday I'll take the morning off for some local sight-seeing. On Friday I head back to Toronto for a writing/sight-seeing weekend. Then one more week on the farm prepping for my trip to Russia, Lithuania, Turkey, and England.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Never let life get in the way of your progress. Accept the sacrifices and just do it! TODAY is the first day of the rest of your life. Don't dwell on past mistakes. That gets you nowhere. 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 action.

We know we have a limited amount of time in this life, so why do we delay on taking massive action on what is important to us?

Plan your days. Block your time. Avoid email. Delegate the trivial. Win your mornings, own your days, concentrate on what counts at night.
