Feelin good

Even though this week is supposed to be a deload, I was feeling good so decided to go for it a little bit. I did some trap bar deadlifts, which are one of a few favorites of mine, and took it up to a top set of 470x5. One of my goals this year is a 550 pull, so I know its going to happen. I have always been a poor puller, damn short arms, but I'm just gonna have to overcome. After that I did some KB juggling for about 20 minutes or so. It is so much fun, I hope some of you have the opportunity to juggle weights in your training. It provides you with an opportunity to burn some fat and work a skill while having a blast. Get outside this spring, buy your own kettlebell and go for it, you won't regret it. I'm interested in how everyones training is going? Any stories, questions or concerns? I'm planning out the guidelines for the next 4-6 weeks of a fat loss program. Should be a good one, its different from how I normally train, but like I said, it's only a few weeks.


  1. Hi,

    Came across your blog through Zach's Youtube and I have to say you're a beast. How do you usually go about structuring your workouts? Do you base it on a specific template or just go for feel/randomness?

    Thanks, Tom.

    Typically I will not program by feel. I do, however, train by feel for my extra workouts when I do things like KB juggling. Usually we are looking at some form of a power movement for low reps, then a strength movement for moderate reps followed by some conditioning. This changes regularly to elicit the best response possible. There is no perfect program, but with any program, the harder you work at it, the more you get out of it.
