Seven new stars will be etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA where every star represents grieving friends, family and colleagues dedicated to fight against the enemy, forever in their name.

A big huge, double pat on the back for Mark. At the beginning of May, we asked you all to have some tangible goals that were both very specific and more importantly attainable. This could consist of trying to do a certain number of repetitions at a given exercise , weigh measure your food, or generally anything.

Mark set his goal at simply showing up. With his work schedule, family and personal obligations. More often than not his personal needs took a back seat to all those around him. So back to the congratulations. Mark set his goal to show up 25 times over the course of May and June. He started slow with only 9 visits during the month of May but upped the ante and managed to hit up the gym 16, hopefully 17 times during the month of June. Awesome Job.

How many of you set goals and reached them?

With tomorrow marking the beginning of July, yes July, the year is officially more than half over. What is the rest of 2015 going to consist of for you within the gym. Its time to re-evaluate and set some new goals or finish some old ones.

We have been spending a lot of time of late working on single leg or unilateral training. Many of you might be wondering why…or maybe not. Well the answer is pretty simple, we are working on fixing many of our weakness. Everyday we walk, we get up out of chairs. We do this without really any recognition. It is very natural, however, what is not natural is that we often overload one leg. Think about when you get out of your car or your bed, you typically do this to one side, your left. You step out of your car placing all of your weight (load) on one single leg, forcing not just that leg to accommodate but the whole system. Over time, your hips, your spine start to shift.

So in training single leg movements we are helping to reduce disfunction and identify weaknesses from side to side.

Other benefits include but are not limited to:
-Less load on the spine
-even distribution of leg strength
-fixing imbalances
-balance and coordination
-Stability
-looking awesome
-better muscular recruitment

Workout of the Day
Thoracic Mobility – Roll out Lats, balls in scaps and pec

Warm-Up Agility Ladder
then
10 rounds
5 OHS (Choose your weight)
7 Pull ups
Prowler
rest 1:00 between rounds

then
finish with

Sometimes you just have to make it fun. Life in the gym, just like many other aspects of our life sometimes just become another thing we do without realizing we do it. We show up because we know we are supposed to, we work hard for the hour, we sweat, get sore and then we go home. Shower, eat, sleep, wake, coffee, work, gym (or gym then work) It becomes just another part of our day that we forget or get lost in.

Sure there are somedays that the world seems out to get to you and the last thing you want to do is throw some heavy weights around and suffer a bit in the gym. These days are the days to make it fun, change the attitude, move the dirt and get sexy.

Eric is here reminding us what its like to bring that professional 9-5 intensity into the gym. Maybe its the lack of sleep since having a newborn at home or maybe its just because “the Viking” just knows how to make it sassy.

What tricks are you using to make it fun?
-For myself, on days that it just cant seem to get the juices flowing, we dance around and listen to a little country.

-Somedays I just simply wear tights, or tape up my thumbs because when you have tape on your thumbs or are wearing tights and only tights…all you can do is throw heavy weights around.

Cheers
