Busy Lifestyle Training Week 3

I changed some things up, but its still efficient- get in and out and push yourself. And I thought this goes without saying, but squat deep. That means upper thigh below parallel. No matter what anyone says, its really the only way to do it. And don't look straight up when you squat, look slightly down or straight ahead. And presses are good for your shoulders. And motivation comes from within, not from a "guru" who never squatted his bodyweight...and Strength is first, last and always.  Onto the program!

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.
