First off…WRECK EM TECH!
My alma mater, Texas Tech University, where football reigns king, is on the national charts with a huge win over #1 Texas last Saturday. If you missed it, you missed the game of the year. I couldn't be prouder…BUT, the win means nothing if they get taken down this Saturday against a very talented, determined Oklahoma State team. So stay focused, stay in your zone and beat the hell out of the Cowboys!!! For those interested in football, you don't want to miss this game. It will be a high flying shootout as both offenses have been putting up serious numbers. 7pm Central on ABC.
In a nutshell, I'm worried. Our society needs to think more like these guys:
"The fact remains that the overwhelming majority of people who have become wealthy have become so thanks to work they found profoundly absorbing...The long term study of people reveals that their 'luck' arose from accidental dedication they had to an area they enjoyed."
- Srully Blotnick
"I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have."
- Thomas Jefferson
The idea of entitlement will cripple this country.
Finally...On to training:
I've been toying with a new training program to see how I like the combination. Here's what it looks like:
Heavy Clean and Press - Ladder Style
Superset w/ Pull Ups, Barbell Rows or Barbell Hang Cleans
Beast Goblet Squat 5X5
Vo2 Max Day - Started with 40 sets of 8 w/ 16kg - Will work up each week
Goof Off/Variety Day
Heavy Pull or Press Day - Dead Lift, Squat, or Power Clean and Front Squat
Friday - Sunday:
Intermittent bending and grip work throughout the week. I've been hitting yellow nails like they're made of rubber. But the blue nail…not so much.
This schedule works with my training, full-time job, social and marriage life(lives). I think I can get strong and conditioned at the same time with this, so I'm going to test it for awhile. Around the beginning of the year, I'll make my way into a Power lifting mode. I'd like to do another full meet next year…maybe coincide with the TSC and then train the techniques for RKC II.
