At work in the garage gym. Just a different kind of work.
Some of the best programming I do comes from a big whiteboard. Being able to see it all in one place, make small tweaks here and there, and take in the overall picture of what is trying to be accomplished.
Even now I still have to remind myself that simple is almost always better.

Broken toes doesn't like sled drags so much so I did a banded glute march for 3 min with kbs instead...
Min 1: easy peasy
Min 2: wincing and Lamaze breathing
Min 3: grimacing and the clock stare
End result: some seriously wobbly legs

Use that fitness

Probably not the most exciting thing to see but it's the stuff I often geek out on. Technique vs. Intensity boils down to the subtle things.
I think of it like this. Once the main points of performance of any movement are in tact they stay there. It's just variations of the movement as I fatigue or break down. Finding the flow of least resistance while still fighting for efficiency.
This workout was
GHD Sit up
Round 1: smooth
Round 2: slower movement to control the bar and you can see my shoulders giving a bit causing the bar to come forward on the last rep. Round 3: shoulders still giving a bit and you can start to see my hips rise a bit before the shoulder since my quads were smoked.
Always fighting to find the balance and push the envelope.

Check out that right shoulder wanting to dip. Broke my humerus in half and dislocated my shoulder at the same time when I was wrestling in 4th grade.
These things seems to follow us and even though I have never gotten a diagnosis I'm pretty sure I may have a torn labrum. Haven't needed surgery to date due to keeping the muscles around the joint strong and being smart when movements don't feel right.

Fall is short lived here. With cold snaps, glimpses of snow, and cool mountain air the leaves don't last long, but I soak up as much of it as I can. Get outside this weekend and use your hard earned fitness.

When you realize you were the guy that dropped the weight during class instruction 🤦🏻♂️...
#CrossFit etiquette: dropped the ball on that one here. To the unaware people behind me: Duck and cover!! #iconathlete #iconmasters #roguefitness #nano #progenex #getworkt
For those of you that don't remember these days you need a history lesson in #CrossFit
Still one of my best memories on this journey is the 2010 @roguefitness @againfasterequipment throw down in Tahoe. Dive finish where @patbarbercf almost clocked his dome on the end of a barbell and @mikkosalo63 looked like a cheetah going for the kill on the hill sprints.

Good golly that stung!!! You know those times when you know a workout will be tough but you still underestimate it... yep, I did that again.

@dzakaras and I just finished up a podcast we will be posting later in the week on @iconathlete
We finished mentioning that a pig just walked in the gym. Here's your proof!
Cleans from the blocks while I test out a new template of strength programming I designed around some principles I love.
3 week progressive overload with a 1RM effort followed up with accessory work. Trying it with some power and oly work this go around.
I have a difficult time posting things like this after the tragedy in Las Vegas last night. In all honesty I don't know what I would post or say. Whatever I think of or even saying I'm speechless sounds inadequate. Praying for the city, families, and all those involved.
Weekends!!! Early morning but well worth it. @tld_moto

Although brutal, kettlebells can help force a quality position in your squat. It's all connected:
In order for your torso to be more upright what has to move forward? Your hips. And if your hips move forward, what else is going to almost always have to move forward? Your knees.
So what is a limiting factor if you have a relatively strong athlete that has descent body awareness? Ankles. Those puppies don't flex and your torso position is going to be more compromised.

Out for the @younglife golf tournament. They said the dress code was no jeans or tshirts...
@roguefitness dickies shop shirt, camo vans, and a good view in the background. Close enough.
