Nothing, right? I mean, it’s all about how much you press and snatch, and how lean you can get… Or is it. Is it? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe the reason you’re not hitting your numbers or your goals is because of the dreaded “H” word. Health. Yeah, not something we really like to pay attention […]

True Or False? “Everything Works…”

Hope you had a great weekend. We did. I got in one of my long walks, where I go out for about an hour, alone with my thoughts, and just take in the scenery. Love being able to do this with the mountains in the background – makes it that much more special for some […]

From Pavel – For You?

Hey – I was talking to Pavel a couple of weeks ago about some of the things he was working on. He’s working on some pretty interesting and innovating training plans. He said he’s looking for some volunteers – some guinea pigs – for some of the new programs he’s designed because he wants to […]
