This was awesome. So much fun. Nothing better than a Saturday morning Meathead workout. I'm so glad I snuck in the Friday deadlift workout because it allowed me to get in for a Military Press session today from Jim Wendler's 5-3-1 program.
1a) Military Press
1b) DB RDL
2a) Chin-up with Knee-Up
2b) More Military Press
Good times. Not as scary as last week.
BTW, there were a lot of "Uncle Ricos" in the gym today (Napolean Dynamite reference). Weight belts, lycra shorts, terrible form, you know the type.
Hilarity ensued, of course.
But I had a good workout despite them being in the way and grunting loudly with every rep.
And I was well fueled from a rib-eye steak dinner last night at the downtown Denver location of The Capital Grill. Had that with a baked potato & olive oil, and sauteed spinach. I skipped the booze. Followed that up with a trip to Whole Foods and bought a bunch of wild Epic protein bars, like Wild Boar and Siricha Chicken. Not Siri Chicken. Siricha. Or something like that. Should be some interesting (and hopefully tasty) experiments.
We also had a visit from Chef Gui at the ETR offices. I'll get some pictures up soon. Next week I'll be meeting him in Vegas for a Mastermind meeting with our group from www.100kinfogroup.com
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Nutrition Tip:
You can’t reach your full potential if you are overweight, tired, and unhealthy. Remember that the pleasure of eating lasts for only a short while, but you inhabit your body 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for life. Add a new healthy habit each day replacing an old unhealthy habit. Everyday you will be tempted to fall back on old bad habits. Do everything you can to resist that. Aim for baby step improvements everyday.
Baby presses every day too,
Craig Ballantyne, CTT
PS - Don't miss the TT Summit in June.
It's going to be an epic training session.
