Old School Strength – No Excuses – Just Lift Heavy Sh*t!!

I went ahead and hit an EARLY morning training session today.

I had a hungry bunch of bootcampers eager to get their session in early this morning at 530am so I stuck around after and got rolling with my own session at about 615am.

I will not lie, the HEAT is a HUGE factor right now.

It was about 81 degrees with something like 90% humidity at 615am!!!

It was so humid that the floors in the gym were sweating – LITERALLY sweating!

The concrete was wet and the rubber matting in the gym was moist as well.

NO EXCUSES!

I zeroed in and focused on the task at hand – TRAIN my ass off!

That’s what I do and what I love to do!

Today’s training was mainly upper body focused.

I feel like I’m really gaining some steam and my strength is steadily climbing each and every week!

Hard work, good diet, and being consistent across the board are all paying off!

Here’s the Training Day:

1A) Power Clean to Push Press 6 x 1

2A) Bench Press (w/ 3 sec pause @ bottom)  5 x 5

2B) Landmine Bent Close Grip Rows  5 x 6-12

3A) Band Resisted Dips 4 x 6-8

3B) Weighted Pull Ups 4 x 6

4A) Banded KB Swings 3 x 15

My favorite band just released their NEW album – STAMPEDE!!!!  This kicks major ass!  Listen and Train Hard!

I’ll be hitting up a Crossfit/ conditioning workout tomorrow!

There I said it…. CROSSFIT!!!!

My new goal – To make the 2011 Crossfit Games!!!

This will be interesting!

Not that I dislike Crossfit, I just dislike those that feel they are “God’s gift of man” who are Crossfit affiliated or certified.

Not all Crossfitters are like this but the one’s I have met in person have made a bad name for Crossfit through being arrogant and stuck up.

Crossfit is just another form of training and I LOVE TRAINING in ALL FORMS!!

No one form of training is THE BEST!

The best form of training is having the KNOWLEDGE to know how to combine all different forms and modalities of training together to create consistent progress.

ITS ALL ABOUT RESULTS and PROGRESS!!!

If you ain’t getting that, you ain’t SHIT!

Look forward to BIG THINGS kids!

Get Forged Strong!

Travis

    Amen on the crossfit! I feel the same way sometimes although I have met some really cool crossfit dudes that think like us! Like you said, it’s all about mixing all your knowledge in one bowl and making something really nice and tasty out of it!

    I’d love to get to the games and put some of this training to good use!

    Good luck dude, hope you get it. What did you think after seeing the games this year now that they are over? I do crossfit, but I am FAR from that group you talk about, but I know those people like that.

      I was inspired by what those guys could do.

      I am determine to try for the games next year.

      I won’t be affiliated or be getting crossfit certified so it will be interesting.

      I’ll keep training like i do and see what happens!
