Sunday Deadlift Sunday

It was a super Sunday on the farm, sunny, no chance of rain, and 100% chance of deadlifts.

I like those odds.

So after a great morning of writing, meditation, dog walking and breakfast, it was off to the local YMCA for good times to be had by all.

The gym was empty, no surprise considering the holiday weekend.

Here in Canadia we celebrate Canada on July 1st, similar to the Independence Day celebrated in America on the 4th.

I'm not sure why North American nations tended to be birthed in July. Perhaps it's founding fathers had nothing to do in the dark nights of November, 9 months earlier.

Yeah, reproductive nation joke. Yeah, a groaner.

So what.

Alright, back to deadlifting.

Solid session.

1a) Power Clean

1b) Mobility

2a) Deadlift

2b) Mobility

3a) Chin-up with Knee-up

3b) Leg Curl

That was all.

A sunny afternoon of dog walks, pear cider, and Euro football followed.

Today's kickbutt mindset tip:

Do the work. Pay the price. Earn the reward. Repeat.

There will be days when you struggle. That’s okay. Just  never give up on what is important to you…Because whatever is in your way, you’re stronger than it, you’re tougher than it, and you’re going  to beat it.      
Don’t be satisfied with the norm if you want more. It’s okay to want to achieve special results.

The world needs folks who dream and achieve big things.

You should be that one,
