Think about it!


I will never do an exercise or a workout because some guru posted on his for pay web site or a saw it on you tube. That is pure and simple insanity. Step back and think about all the implications of the exercise or the workout. The key word here is THINK, don’t be like a bunch of sheep and blindly follow the ram, he my not know where he is going. This is precisely why we are where we are in this field- a bunch of junk justified by marketing hype, gobbledygook with no context, sequence or progression. It reminds of the line from the old country western song: “Work your fingers to the bone and what do get – boney fingers.” I do not know about you but I want positive training adaptations that I can allow to measure and track progress over time, not just tired and sore athletes. Don’t be a follower, be a leader, think critically, consider the source, above all THINK,THINK,THINK!
