9 Weeks to San Antonio


My first World Record in 2010 at San Antonio, 36' Sheaf toss...



Training is going good and in 9 weeks I will be in Sunny San Antonio, Texas to defend my title from last year! Ed Cosner the meet director is bringing in some ringers. It will be one of the biggest Masters meet this year!
In a few weeks I will shift my training to 40-40-20, 40% Throwing, 40% Lifting and 20% conditioning. Right now i'm about 20-60-20, respectively.
The energy at the gym has been fantastic, with the addition to some good friends!
Thanks everyone for their support, especially my sponsors,
BioRhythm supplements and Schiek belts!

Deepest regards to the loss of a Fitness pioneer, Jack LaLanne... RIP!

Exercise of the month

This is something new im trying. If you all like it I will continue with different exercises (or requests for exercises). There is no commentary to this one, but in the future there will be.

The Glute Ham raise- one of the most effective ways to work the Gluteus muscles (butt) and hamstrings.
Set the foot pads so the inside of your thighs are touching. Turn your feet out. Think of yourself as a scissors lift that will stretch out and be pulled back. Do NOT bend at the waist and come up, that is a back extension. Extend out and pull back with the glutes and hamstrings.
For beginners, have a partner stand out in front so you can hold on and push off if needed.

Have fun, and get those buns of steel.
