A muscular upper body looks great but true strength comes from your hips, ass, and legs. The lower body is the real engine that drives the car. I’ll be the first to admit I love taking selfies or taking my shirt off at the beach but what’s far more important to me is athleticism and real world strength. I just want to win and be the best in the world at what I do. I can’t do that without a strong and functional set of legs. On a side note having a nice looking ass and wheels never hurt anyone either. 

Today I did a “Strength Ladder” I often perform with Back Squat. I’ll also do it with the Deadlift and Overhead Squat. It looks like this: 

10 reps @ a light weight (I.e 135lbs)

9 reps @ a heavier weight (I.e 185lbs)

8 reps @ a heavier weight (I.e 225lbs)

Keeping adding weight and reps till you end with one HEAVY single. 

If I’m feeling good after that one heavy single I’ll usually do between 5 and 10 more singles.

Workout:

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…
