Knees were feeling like crap today, and I hadn't gotten my windmills in for a while. I decided to step them up a little today.
Taekwon-Do Hyung practice
10 x 10 2-arm swings with 36kg
6 x 5 windmills with 36kg (an acceptable substitute for getups, in a pinch)
That is a lot of windmills with a fairly significant amount, now that I look at it. I was a little sore later that night after. No…Continue

I apologize that a spammer slipped through the cracks and has bugged a few of you. He is blocked now.
There is not much you can do about them, but I wouldn't accept "friend requests" from anyone you don't know personally. I try my best to keep these guys out, but sometimes they weasel their way in.
Thanks for understanding.

I was planning a light day with 24kg getups between Taekwon-do hyungs, but when I started getups my IT bands pretty much screamed at me all the way though that it was not going to happen. I did what I would have suggested to someone else and substituted windmills.
So, after my first few getups and the rest of my hyung practice, I did 4 X 5 behind-the-back windmills with 24kg. My back and piriformis was ridiculously tight, so maybe that had…Continue

MEDIUM-HEAVY DAY: 21 GETUPS, 16KG-40KG. 30 SECONDS REST BETWEEN EACH REP.
GOBLET SQUATS: 5 X 5 W/40KG.
Hardly ate today. Not stressing about it, though. After my initial workout I just wasn't that hungry. I did snack here and there while working on a project. Not even going to try to log it, either.
I do know that I ate a TON the day before, so not being hungry today is not a big deal at all. I know my body…Continue

Won't even try to log due to random amounts of a huge variety on Saturday. First meal was about 2pm at the Mongolian grill. This place does not have to be the nutritional disaster most people make it if you totally: 1) avoid any dark sauces,…Continue

As some of you know, I recently completed the Primal Blueprint Expert certification. I really learned more than I ever thought I would from it and it has been a great help to me in my business. If anyone has been on the fence about it, you might want to act soon because I understand the price of the course is going to jump. My only word of advice is not to underestimate this course if you decide to take it.…Continue
