More Random Thoughts

Just thought I would post some more random thoughts as I sit here at work…

I experimented in the gym I work at last weekend. I re-organized all of the plates on the free-weight side of the gym. I made sure there was an equal amount of plates distributed throughout. After 6 hours of open gym time the plates were all over the place. The organization was no more. It was a wreck. I just don’t understand how it is so hard for people to put weights back where they got them. It’s not a hard thing to do. It takes no extra effort at all.

I am so sick of this cold weather. Especially when I get teased with 50+ days every so often. I hate winter and need some warmth in my life. Snow and ice are just worthless. I can’t wait to make my way to the southwest.

My cousin has been reading the book Game of Shadows. It’s about the use of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs in sports. It seems like this is the biggest thing being talked about right now and everyone is out to get athletes. I agree that all these players shouldn't be lying about it but at the same time I don’t see why people put so much negativity with athletes who are exposed. In my opinion, athletes have probably been using performance enhancing drugs since they were created, which was a long ass time ago. I feel sorry for players today who have to deal with the ridicule. I know if I could help my career by taking a supplement I would have no problem doing it. The public is just too quick to judge when they really don't know the facts.

I started doing this exercise last week. I had done roll-outs before but never on a stability ball. This is a great new exercise for core development. The video below shows it from a kneeling position but try from a standing position for more difficulty.

Make sure you continue to work towards your goals every day. Wake up with intentions to get shit done. I know I am well on my way to reaching my goals and may just reach them two months in advance...Don't let me show you all up.

I have some new followers to the blog. I love to see that people are reading. I hope that I can help and inform people and maybe stir up questions and debates. I realize I don't know everything and that is why I encourage people to contact me to discuss. I love to learn new things. I just hope everyone enjoys the posts and keeps following.
