I did a few different things today. I was at the Blender Bottle gym and had access to a pec deck, a cable crossover machine and a bunch of other toys. A lot of people in the “functional fitness” industry criticize these tools but I look at them a different way. I built a huge base doing these things. Traditional bodybuilding type training helped make me incredibly strong. The movements like pec deck, cable crossovers, tricep pushdowns, preacher curls, etc helped support all my bigger movements and when I moved into functional fitness I was strong enough to handle the work load and progress faster than a person that hadn’t. I’m all for these exercises being included in the right frequency, etc. On a related note the pump they provided was tremendous.

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
