    I actually think I'm going to go with a pair of minis and a pair of micros. If I wanted something heavier than the minis I could always combine the minis and micros together couldn't I? Then it would be like the monster mini. Any input

    When my band pack arrived the colors were different than the picture shown for the mountain dog training pack. Not entirely sure which is which - I just use them based on feel.

    You should be alright with those. You could double the Pro Minis for certain exercises as well.

    Great question, I was wondering as well. Also this maybe a stupid question but when you say nut butter you mean peanut butter right?

    I actually quit having oats pre wo as they were giving me a huge gut ache. Cream of rice absorbs way faster so it's a huge win imo. The chocolate syrup is awesome for flavor.

    I eat my Cream of Rice immediately before heading to the gym, which is usually 30-45 mins before I actually start training. I rarely use pre-workout stims anymore. Probably a couple times per month. If I do, I drink my pre on the ride to the gym, right after my meal.

    Peanut or almond butter. I rotate based on what flavor OEProtein I'm using. Vanilla with almond, Banana with peanut, Strawberry or Chocolate is a toss up.

    I literally haven't had a single oat since first trying Cream of Rice.

  20. Some motivational words from the young, but knowledgeable and insightful, Alexander Juan Antonio Cortes :


    "On finding passion,

    Had a conversation with a friend yesterday who wanted to know how I had "found" my passion in the fitness industry.

    I didnt find. I BUILT IT.

    I never planned to work in this field or had grand foresight in goal setting. Truth be told, Ive never set goals in anything, I just had things I wanted to do, so I learned what i needed to do and then did them. I started personal training in college part time and after walking out of the performing arts field, training I enjoyed enough to keep on doing.

    I always had a commitment to improving at it, but there were many times when I considered quitting and doing something else. Apathy, doubt, resentment were things I experienced. I just never gave into them

    So Despite those periods, I held fast to the belief that so long as I worked as hard as I could, those points of doubts would be followed by periods of growth. Much like having strength or muscle stagnate and then super compensate, there are times when you simply need to keep your head down and do work, and trust the process of this leads to something.

    Year over year I found myself loving it more and more, even when I wanted to break up with it. And the more into it I was, the more it rewarded me, and the harder I worked the more opportunities presented themselves, and then the harder I could work taking those on, and so on and so forth

    So the "finding" of passion then, I really dont believe it works that way at all. And everyone young my age thats flighty and "searching" really needs to take a step back and WORK at something before declaring themselves lost. You're not lost, but youve likely never worked hard enough at anything to "find" yourself in it."

  22. Tonight's session was solid, especially having only slept 3 hours last night. I felt awful for the majority of the day, but thankfully, my pre/peri-nutrititon carried me through no problem and I've felt much better since.

    Cage press is one of my favs. But I also find it very challenging. I think banding that lift sounds super tough

    I love cage presses. The bands intrigue me. Might try it Tuesday.

    Yup. I came up with the idea a few months ago and they're amazing; one of my favorite ways to implement a band. The added tension feels fantastic at the top and smokes the rear delts/traps during the eccentric as well.


    This wasn't the exact approach used today, but same idea. Just wrap a band around your back, have it come up under your arms, and loop it around your thumbs.

  28. I absolutely loved this morning's back session. Not having to plan my own training is great, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it for now.

    Cable Rows (neutral wide grip)
    60x15 (warm-up)
    80x15 (warm-up)
    90x20
    100x20
    110x20

    -sitting straight up, allowing arms to extend and shoulder blades to spread before driving the elbows back and flexing the upper/mid back hard

    -focus on mind-muscle connection: weight wasn't a priority and keeping it on the low end allowed for a strong contraction each rep (and prevented it from turning into a bicep exercise)



    Smith Machine Rows
    135x10 (warm-up)
    155x10 (warm-up)
    185x8
    185x8
    185x8

    -stops set so the weight bottomed out at mid-shin level

    -paused each rep at the bottom and then explosively drove elbows up/back with a flex hard at the top



    DB Pullovers / Band Assisted Pull-ups
    55x12 / 8
    55x12 / 8
    55x12 / 8
    55x12 / 8

    -pull-ups: arched back and kept sternum elevated while driving the elbows down

    -pull-ups: brought grip in about 1 inch each set





    Modified Rack Deads
    135x15 (warm-up)
    225x12
    225x12
    265x10
    265x10

    -set hooks on cage to about waist level, grabbed BB, kept back flat and chest out, brought bar down to just above knees before pulling back and retracting scapulae/flexing back as hard as possible

    -focus on pumping back, glutes kept loose

    -if you can nail the form these are amazing



    DB Dead-Stop Rows
    120x5
    130x5
    130x5, 130x3, 80x10

    -5R/5L (and 3R/3L)

    -drove elbows up/back hard with a 1 second flex at the top and a 3 second controlled eccentric

    Thanks man. I'm having fun putting together (and trying) sessions that I usually can't when planning training for someone else (based on training experience and/or goals).
