Old Man Meathead Strength and Warmup and Dad Advice

Meathead strength session in the garage today. It was combined with a long old-man warm-up. These warm-ups seem to be getting longer and longer, but my injuries are also fewer and far between.

It's been almost a year since I had to go to the chiropractor. Five years ago I felt like I was going every week... and I wasn't any stronger back then, but I was younger. So all the prep is paying off.

BTW, all I do for my old man warmups now is simply do everything twice. This is kind of what it looks like, but I'll update it again soon.

Today's Workout (with ol' Bally the Personal Trainer Dog lying in the grass outside and keeping one eye slightly on my form)

1A) DB Chest Press
1B) DB Chest Supported Row

2A) Pushups
2B) DB Rear Delt Raise

That's it. Yep, that's all.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Paradox of Structure = The more structure and discipline you have in your life, the more freedom you will earn and enjoy.

Fail forward. Learn your lessons. Move on. Never stop. Keep growing. Act in the face of fear to build extreme self-confidence.

Build it,
