High Energy Kickstart to the Weekend

It's going to be a busy, busy day in Denver. Chef Gui Alinat is popping into the office to meet the team. I also have a lot of phone calls and podcast interviews, so it's time to bring the energy.

Had a great workout to start the day, too.

1A) Power Clean
1B) Pushups
1C) Mobility

2A) Deadlift
2B) Incline Press

3) Walking Lunge

Tomorrow will be the 10x5 overhead press from Wendler's workout. I thought it was going to destroy my delts last week, but it didn't. Should be even better tomorrow.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:

First, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of our Moms. And yes, I just yelled it!

Second, here's the ‪#‎truth‬...If it’s in your house, you’re going to eat it. Junk in the house = You and I eating the junk. Period. (And YES, that includes ME.) So get it out of the house. By the way, it is called “junk food” for a reason…because it belongs in the garbage. Don’t feel bad for tossing it…because it doesn’t belong in your body.


Life is the sum of your experiences and the people you spend your time with. Connect with someone that matters today and create a memory to last a lifetime. Reward yourself for your hard work. Celebrate your victories, big and small.

Wishing you a great weekend,

PS - Be good.

Be on your best behavior today. Act polite and courteous. Do not swear. It’s just one day. You can do it. And then you can do it again and again. “Goodness in and of itself is the practice and the reward...fine-tine your thoughts, words, and deeds in a progressively wholesome direction...To be good is to be tranquil and worry-free...The virtuous life holds these treasures: your own right action, your honor, and decency.” – Epictetus
