Daily Workout: July 9th – July 12th, 2018
It has been another productive week of training. I apologize for not posting my training promptly but I had to attend Taekwondo nationals and get a bunch of work done before a travel day back east on Thursday. There are some people who may get frustrated because they want to follow the training but I would strongly advise against that. My workouts aren’t necessarily the most planned right now. Well, let me rephrase they are planned but they are not what I call a balanced program. I am coming off a serious illness and trying desperately to gain weight. Therefore I am hammering some of the same things over and over again trying to regain what I lost. For a balanced person it may not be the best course of action. Also int he background I am doing a lot of BJJ so that is another factor.
Always remember when you go to do another person’s workout or program to do some critical thinking and think whether or not that programming fits into what you do. Some of these workouts may be great for you and some may seem not so great.
I put these up to give you ideas and to learn from but remember they aren’t the gospel.

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…
