Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it’s just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it-

Looking back it may have been wise to let you know that this weeks posts are trying to flow together in one way or another.  Grandpa-pa Moses pointed this subtly out last night:  “You bloviating fools spend so much damn time writing and chatting about something that in essence is so simple!”

“Get up and move everyday…”

That is 89 years of old man wisdom there peeps…In essence we all do this on any given day, right?  For most of us this simple idea begins to travel sideways as soon as we step out of bed though, sadly.  We could beat this topic into a righteous death daily like so many blog-o-sphere types do…But why really?!?  Only YOU know what it takes to get back to the purity of Grandpa Moses message…

The Plan-

Allow us to dip our toes into murky waters today for just a moment.  We are here to empower you not to provide self-serving recommendations or instruct your every move during a program.  There are fundamental movements you need to pattern before you add serious weight!  These need to become second nature like picking your nose in your mom’s basement.  Case in point:  Turkish Get Ups.  89.2% of you can barely walk and download an app little lone put all the pieces together to properly put some serious weight over you head!  And now you are going to go off to the “box” and do AMRAP in 20 minutes?!?  More power to you…Quick timeout for a few obligatory links to warm your heart:

These Links are Must Read(s) Peeps!!!

Weekend Warriors

Overly Aggressive Workouts Put Athletes at Risk

The Workout-

Trail Run/Walk/Swim for about 45 minutes or so followed by:

100 Alternating Goblet Squat Pivots

100 Reverse Lunges (No weight – No Shoes)

Spend 30 Minutes messing about with the Turkish Get Up (Start with what you learned yesterday and continue to pattern this critical movement)


Today’s top tip:  Swimming and stretching in the pool prior to a hard workout…Let’s just say your body will thank you later in life.  Be safe today and ENJOY!!!

  1. Seems simple but underused advice abounds today! Get up and move every day. Love it!

  2. This may be something I add to my “don’t weigh yourself” philosophy for the next two weeks.
