apparently doing power cleans after high intensity interval work the day before is a recipe for setting the glutes on fire

Tales from the clinic


I mobilize this client's ankle, give him 50-70% more mobility .

The problem he was complaining about goes away, probably because since his ankle was not moving his lower leg and knee were becoming hyper mobile too compensate.

He is amazed, all 3 of his events feel better(he is a triathelete), it is almost a life altering experience.

What does he do on the weekend?

Rolls over his ankle and sprains the talofibular ligament( the ligement that is on the outside of your ankle, if you have ever rolled your foot then that is what you hurt)

gah, cannot win in this world.

Now this looks funny, and most entertaining

And this, I do not know what to think about it but thus far I am thinking it will be weird and wacked out just like I like them

Aaron likes playing with his pud

Get your mind out of the gutter, this is a pud

If you want your own pud you can get one at Jumpstart Athletics and then you can throw your pud, polish your pud, do what ever you wish to do with your pud. That is your business, who am I to judge?

the squat

Since I have gotten the squat rack as seen in post below I have been squatting like a demon.

Started doing over head squats too

This is an overhead squat

Here is an article describing the efficacy of the exercise for those who care

On a side not my overhead press has been improving quite nicely, methinks a potential of 300 pounds may be realized


Here is a pic of the great John Grimek pressing, note the quadriceps development very impressive

I am restless today, big job in the shop , boring to do and they need it now so that is eating my soul 1 piece at a time.

4 massages tonight also, no rest for Aaron today but it is the path I have chosen so suck it up princess.

The summer is already slipping away, it is true what they say, the older you get the faster time goes, this is so true, the days are flying by.

Done whining

that is all

Movie selection of the week

You Kill Me

This movie looks really funny

The more I see Ben Kingsley in less serious roles the more I like him.

Expectations and other things

2 new additions to the living room

The squat rack were hopefully on my 40th birthday I will make 600 pounds go up and down

one has to dream

And the new couch via Ikea , damnation I love that store, I am sure the swedes pump some kind of addictive chemical into the ventilation system of the store so you keep going back.

Took the couch for a test drive yesterday afternoon for a nice 2 hour nap, it was good.

The expectation part, you talk to some one and everything seems good, and you hope to hear from them .

Careful what you wish for , it might come true.

Big decisions

I have once again converted my living room into a gym. Bought a rack, re-acquired my old Ivanko bar and got some plates and it is weight lifting heaven in Aaron's living room.

Between the jobs and traveling between them, time is a precious commodity and that means the exercise equipment has to be available right now.

I want to squat 600 pounds for my 40th b-day so I took the steps to make it happen and if my apartment looks like the uber batchleor pad so be it.

A lot of things in this life are out of our control but a lot are in it too.
