Pre-Christmas Update

I get sentimental around the Holidays. I particularly like the ones where presents are involved (Christmas and my birthday.) So I tend to let my heart rest on the ol' sleeve. Here are some updates:

My training is going pretty damn well. I've been incorporating some more ass to grass High Bar Squats and a lot more Heavy Deads. I'll be pulling 400 for several sets sans belt or wrist wraps this weekend, a PR. And I'm not even remotely concerned that I will fail. I know I will dominate. That's confidence in programming.



My physique is growing, especially my wheels. One of my goals for the upcoming production of  Roméo et Juliette was to have some pretty decent quads to sport in the more than likely required tights in my performance of Paris. I'm hoping to have each quad be roughly the size of Sarah Coburn (JK...or am I?) I'm in a bit of a mini bulk, I'm not weighing myself, but I'm keeping fairly good track of my macros and letting in a little bit of YOLO here and there to give myself a mental break from the dieting mindset. I'm going for strength gainz and trusting the physique will follow.

Yeah, I still wear shades inside. No fucks given.

My clients are doing well. I'm looking forward to sharing some of their progress as the weeks go on (with their permission.) I think a few of you can relate to some of their ups and downs with the journey and I want the blogosphere to understand how proud I am of their dedication. I'll be taking on a few more clients after the new year, so look out for the promos that I'll be releasing if you're interested in signing up.

Now, the book. I'm really enjoying writing. It's truly opening my eyes to the full scope of this journey I've been on since I was a kid. I've really delved deep into the factors that made me overweight and I've tried my best to outline a fully integrated approach to losing weight and building muscle while making it easily digestible and entertaining. It's been pretty easy to get information on paper, I've already typed up 30 pages with relative ease with a lot more information to share. I'm actually quite surprised how open I'm being with some of the stories. A great deal of them are very private memories that I've shared with no one. However, these stories are important and relative to the message I'm trying to convey and I'm hoping that people will appreciate the honesty. 

Until next time,

Lift Big, Sing Big, and Look Great Doing It.
