Stuff I have Learned Part 2

Knock out cardio first thing in the morning

Beginners should squat at least twice a week

Everyone has time

Sweet potatoes are a great dieting aid

There is a time and a place for cheating exercises

Grease the groove with pullups

Teach the ones who want to learn

You can't make chicken salad outta...

Switch deadlift types(sumo and conventional) every 6 weeks

Search out the quiet coaches

Nutrex is the best tasting protein

When starting a diet with low carbs, eat the fat

Protect your back

Use your instincts

Close grip benches and dips for triceps

Just get started, grab it and go

Start pedalling

Pickles and mustard are great dieting tools

It's called progressive resistance

It's who you know

Teach someone to hunt and fish

Dogs never fail you

Motivation is everything.

Dips, dips, dips

You already know the answer

Krispy Kreme over Dunkin'

Madden over Landry

Pause squats to learn depth

Touch and go deadlifts and paused both have their place

Hemingway, Hemingway, Hemingway

Train in the energy system of the activity you about to perform

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.
