Sunday was nearly a CASS-Free day. Just a small cup of tea before an upper body workout in the garage.
That Meathead-ish workout looked like this:
1A) Decline Maximus Pause Pushup (1-1-1-1) = 28 reps, new PB
1B) Band Pull
2A) DB Neutral Grip Press
2B) DB RDR
3A) KB 1-Arm OH Press
3B) DB 1-Arm Row
4B) Kneeling Plank-to-Triceps Extension
4C) Total Body Extension
4D) Close-Grip Pushup
Had a nice visit from TT Trainer, J-Roc, on Sunday afternoon.
Today we had a little Christmas gift exchange with a few family members that missed out on the 25th, and I had more fun than on real Christmas!
My sister gave me a fancy new silk eye-mask. Probably the best gift of the year. Makes a huge difference in the summer, and in hotels where the rooms are filled with digital and mystery lights.
It was a great way to start the week. We should do a gift exchange every Monday morning. Ha!

Who needs fancy equipment for a fat torching workout? Not you!
Your legs will be on fire (even after one round), and so will your metabolism.
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
“Everybody in your situation has the same choice: you can rue your situation or you can dedicate yourself to changing it. Accept responsibility for your future. Refuse to complain, criticize, or condemn. If you want us to help you achieve your goals, then trust in and follow our advice. Stop doubting it. Stop denying it. Have faith.” – Mark Ford
Keep the faith and push on,
Craig Ballantyne, CTT
