Garage Gym Upper Body Mania

Today was pre-workout caffeine and a big breakfast bowl of coconut oil, walnuts, almond butter, and Paleo Protein powder sprinkled on top. Also had a few Brazil nuts on the side. This is not a Paleo Vegan week, but it's really easy to avoid plastic water bottles when you stay home.

The workout was done in the Garage Gym. This was good and bad. I just ran out of time this morning and couldn't go to the Y for a regular bench press workout. I basically wussed out, because I have enough equipment to do upper body at home, but still, the workout is not the same. I need to have a serious chat with myself and get myself serious about getting stronger again.

Today's Training:

1) Decline Maximus Pause Pushup (1 second pause at top and bottom) = 24 (new personal best)

2A) Pullup

2B) DB Inc Neutral Grip Press

3A) Renegade Row with Hand on Bench

3B) Plank to Triceps Extension

4) 1-Arm DB Row

This was okay. Glad to have hit the PB on pushups.

Now here's something interesting...check out this man's journey...he clearly has eating issues that need professional help, but it shows the power of tracking:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

You don't need to wait for the new year to create a resolution. Self improvement can start TODAY. Realize your goal and make the steps to achieve it. Procrastinating positive change is only limiting you from reaching your full potential!

Don't let minor matters slow you down.

“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.” – Winston Churchill ..... Do what matters!

Focus on the major things in life,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT

PS - Remember not to worry about that which you cannot control.

“I wish I hadn’t spent so much of my life worrying.” => #1 regret of people, according to The Legacy Project at Cornell University
