Assisted at the Mahler/Cotter workshop over the weekend. In short it rocked! I had a great time learning and hanging out with them. Also got to see Franz and Yoana from Revolution LaJolla.

Training update

Training has been on the back burner since the teeth mauling;) I overdid it and have been taking it easy doing some Indian clubs, kettlebells and few other things. I don't like the feeling of not being able to train hard and it is certainly frustrating but necessary. I am feelling that next week will be a lot better.

I have been lax in posting the workouts also but I'll be back to it soon.

Corey's 1.5" #172 dumbell

Played around with the #172 a bit got some solid reps but it is still not owned. No photographer today so it was hard to get a good pic!

Bw chins 5 x 3

Felt great to be back doing something. Going to let the mouth heal up a bit before I push it again.

The lay off has given me a chance to reflect on training:)

"I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it." Steve Irwin

Steve Irwin dies
Got bumbed this morning when I heard this news. I went to his zoo couple of times . First time it was a shack and a few snakes and lizards. I went back there about ten years later and it was totally different. He really poured all his money back into it and revamped it totally. Feel for his family. He did a lot furthering the causes he believed in. A real shit of a way to go.
