Welcome to the JUNGLE

10 Feb


Sorry for not posting anything this week…. I have been tweaking my training.  The only movements I have done this week have been strict/ kipping ring dips + strict/ kipping ring pullups + strict muscle ups + strict pullups + some barbell work + trigger point on my chest (main focal point).  Results=  I FEEL STRONGER THEN EVER!  The ONE MAIN GOAL for me is to achieve Optimal Health/ Performance.   When I’m 60, I seriously doubt I will be able to Power Clean 245#’s…possible, but doubtful.  And that’s OK with me.  I DO WANT to be able to do pushups, ring dips, air squats, run, etc…. when I’m 60!  And I want to be able to do them like I was 33!

The  UndergroundGroundShack’s training will incorporate the following:  GymansticWod, Crossfit, and CrossfitFootball.  In no particular order. The men and women who have developed the before mentioned links know what the hell they are talking about.  They have taken all the guess work out of it for you and I… Now as for programming my workouts, only I know my strengths and weakness.  I can’t rely on blindly following any site if I have certain goals I want to achieve.  So as I post my workouts you will see how I modify any of the workouts that the following sites post, I recommend you do the same if you want to achieve Optimal Health/ Performance.  I didn’t even mention Jim Wendler 5-3-1, or my main man Big Z, who I like to “borrow” from (Underground Strength Manual).

On occasion I may post an actual workout that I do, or if you have any questions about training… drop me a comment and I will share my insights.  Word and Happy Training.

Keri Smith – Life is a constantly morphing thing

Life is a constantly morphing thing. Just when you think you know where it’s all headed you wake up the next morning to a completely different view. The landscape has changed along with the seasons, but the trees are the same trees, only your view has changed. So you try to cling to the old things that used to comfort you, clinging to the familiar, but they provide little or no solace. The fears do not subside. At this point we have no choice but to surrender to the unknown.

that is where the real beauty lies.

It is not in the knowing, the familiar, the expected. But in the embracing of the unknown. a willingness to walk down a new path and to trust that everything is as it should be. perfect. as it is.

Schopenhauer said,”When you look back on your life, it looks as though it were a plot, but when you are into it, it’s a mess: just one surprise after another. Then, later, you see it was perfect.”

Sometimes there are little glimpses of the perfection, amidst the mess. It is at those times we feel blessed beyond measure.

I will leave you with this…if you are not having fun, then don’t do it.
