Basement Training

Squatting in the basement has always been one of my favorite things to do. In fact, just lifting weights in the basement's of my life- my old girlfriend's when I was in college, my buddy Ricky's in high school and my basement,now, in South Jersey have always brought a welcome respite from crowded gyms and awful music. Plus my dog hangs out with me. Between sets he visits, gets petted and then goes and rests while I train. Awesome!

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
