Find a Reason

Find a reason to exercise today.

No more searching for excuses!

We’re all busy. We all have a million reasons why we can’t train today.

Find the reason why YOU ARE going to do something.


Maybe you’re not passionate about lifting.

That’s fine! You don’t have to be.

Go for a walk, a jog, a bike ride. Shoot hoops, do yoga, hit the heavy bag, go swimming, whatever!

Choose an activity you like and find a reason to do it every day for at least two weeks, for at least 15 minutes.

Training Log: Week 2

Week 2 Day 1


Deadlift: 5 X 5 @ 455

Safety Squat Bar GM: 3 X 12 @ 155

w/ Cable Rows: 4 X 15 – 20 @ 150 – 200

GHR: 4 X 10

w/ Ab Wheel: 4 X 12

Great workout, deadlifts felt awesome! 455 felt about the same as 405 last week. I’m really focusing on dialing in my technique and making all the reps as fast as possible.

My accessory work here was pretty basic. Just working on bringing up my entire backside and finishing up with some ab work.


Week 2 Day 2


Bench: 5 X 5 @ 245
