Here's a little #humpday positivity for you!! Both these arms at one point represented very bad roads that my life was on to which they would have eventually led to my death if i continued that path.
And now many years later they both haves healed or been "fixed" to a point where they are both driveable one is clearly in better condition than the other!
My point is this I would clearly love them to be the same in a way but for the bigger picture of life I'm glad that they are different because each one is a constant reminder of the choices I made in my life.
Each one represent a road that I have been down before and the left is a constant reminder of what I lost and ultimately what I would lose if i continued that road; death!
The right on the other hand leads to so many more paths that my future can be anything so anytime I have a bad day I just take a look down remind myself where each road takes me.
I won't lie and tell your there is no benefit to using drugs and alcohol because there is two, the instant gratification or pleasure and the numbing and blocking of emotional and physical pain which helps you forget your problems.
That's it and believe me those benefits are very short lived you will soon get no pleasure followed by a mountain of problems and if you continue eventually you die that's the end everytime, it always wins.
So choose the road with many possibilities and enjoy your lufe, family and friends because we only get one and im here to tell you im not wasting anymore of my years!
Everybody wants the results without doing any of the work...... slow and very cold 10 mile run. A steep 1 mile hill (south hill) in the middle of it. Soaking in a hot bath now. Have a good day everybody. Keep working hard y’all.

‼️Mechanical dropset‼️ like regular dropsets, these are great for getting more reps in with a higher intensity but change of plan or exercise you also change the angle and tension you place on the muscle. Give them a shot you next arm or shoulder day!
Creating proper tension in any heavy
compound lift is paramount to quality
movement. This will allow you to lift
more weight, while staying injury free.
One of the biggest cues I heard
forever but never really understood was
“Keep the bar close”
To me that just meant stand close to the bar and keep it there! This resulted in many
failed attempts and nagging back pain.
A better thought (imo) is “Tuck your shoulder
blades in your back pocket”
Creating lat tightness in this way helps
you to brace harder, keeping your back safer
and making heavy weights feel light!
For a simple mental checklist:
- Approach bar
(same hand and foot position every time!)
- Big belly breath with abs tight
- Corkscrew arms trying to wrap bar around shins
- Pull hips down into position, pulling shoulder
blades DOWN while pulling UP on bar to take slack out
- Initiate lift by pushing away from ground and pulling chest back
