I’d like to thank Coach Joe DiStefano for taking the time to stop by ‘The Church’ today. We learned, we laughed, and we lifted some heavy ass weights. For those of you who don’t know he’s one of the world’s best at what he does. He’s the Head of Sport and Training for Spartan Race and a huge part of the reason they’ve been so successful over the years. He’s also the cofounder of Spartan coaching (the world’s first obstacle race training certification) and has more certifications than I can count (BS in Exercise And Sports, NASM, NSCA, the list goes on, etc). Anyway I can’t wait to see you again My friend. Maybe here, maybe in your hood, or just maybe one day soon you’ll see me on top of the podium at a Spartan Race. You never know… #spartanrace

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…
