Daily Workout: June 30th, 2018
Every. Damn. Day. What does it mean? It doesn’t mean I’m crushing myself every day. It doesn’t mean I’m going easy either. It simply means I’m doing something to better myself every day. It’s something I believe in with all my heart. Different days and times call for different prescriptions. There are times in the week I lift heavy, there are times I lift light. There are times I work my ass off and there are times I have planned self imposed rest periods. There are times I’m in the gym and there are times you’ll find me elsewhere engaging in recovery practices (sauna, @ntrecovery boots, on a massage table, etc). There are even times you’ll find me with a notepad working on my “sports psychology” exercises or reading a book to educate myself. The point is I’m actively engaging in some activity to make myself the best version of me that I can be. I don’t take days off in that department. Without that work ethic I’d never have been able to overcome my bad genetics, I’d never have rehabbed from a career ending injury, I’d never have made the @ufc, and I’d never have won a world championship. Without that work ethic I won’t achieve my goals in the future or overcome whatever the world throws at me. Without that work ethic I simply wouldn’t be Bobby Maximus. Every. Damn. Day.
Today’s session was dedicated to structural and accessory work. Not heavy, not sexy, not glamorous. Just good old fashion fundamental work. Sessions like these are one of the reasons I haven’t been hurt in the gym for more than a decade.
10-1 Ladder of ATP (@westsidebarbellofficial) Banded Deadlift and Inverse Curls. Get Heavier every round but never sacrifice form. If you don’t have an ATP or an Inverse Curl then you could do Sumo Deadlifts and Romanian Deadlifts.

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…
