Hello All,

Well my fiance just gave me, well for xmas, the new Supple Leopard book. It is jam packed with lots of information. I will definitely be using a lot of this information. I already found some issues with regard to my mobility and flexibility.

In other news, I got a raise at my new job. Woo! Right now I am only training 2 time per week. Strength training. Ideally I want to do more, but right now I am trying read more, eat better and spend more time with family. So for now I only train on weekends. Just a Push/Pull on Saturday and Sunday. During the week I will take more time to learn mobility drills and improve flexibility.

I hope you all had a happy new year and an awesome Holiday!

Hello All,

Its been a few months since I have really posted anything on here. Mostly because I have been in search of a full time job. And I found one! And it is fitness related. It came at a perfect time.

I have gained back about 20 lbs since June/2014, where I weighed 163 pounds. I weigh about 183ish. Now since I have a more flexible schedule I can eat more appropriately. The goal is to get to 175 lbs by December. Let me share with you my recent personal records.

In the last month I was able to:

  1. Bench Press: 185# for 1 Rep
  2. Squat: 225# (low bar)
  3. Deadlift: 300# (conventional)
  4. Full Squat Clean: 165#

Even though I have gained some weight I still feel in decent enough shape to get back to where I was last year. As far as the routine goes, I will go back to a Push Pull Legs routine with some minor changes. Which will most likely include more jump roping, walking and sprinting. When I working at my other job, I realized I was walking almost 10 miles per week, plus basketball PLUS my 2x/week sprints. I am going to try to find a way to replicate that as much as possible.

I will post up any useful information or resources on this blog.

That is all!
