    Before you go making this one harder, let me warn you that tomorrow is a tough one. Go after this one today with as much intensity as you can muster, but don’t add to it. You’ll thank me later.

    Hey Coach,
    I made sure to take your advice today and didn’t make the workout any harder. I worked hard and finished it in 18 minutes and 26 seconds. I definately felt sore from yesterday while doing today’s workout. Coach, what does the “action precedes progress” part of the quote mean?

  3. Coach says:

    Progress is the result of action. Therefore one must first act before they can expect to make any progress.

    We often get paralysis by analysis, which simply means that we make a plan that is based in simplicity and then overthink and overanalyze it without taking any action, and therefore go nowhere.

    Make sense?

    Today we did 1-1-1-1-1 of shoulder press, 3-3-3-3-3 of push press, and 5-5-5-5-5 of push jerk. I also did 2x 3/4 mile hill repeats on a steep hill. When I am rolling in jiu-jitsu it is a constant mind game if I think about what I can do for longer than a split second. The move I though about doing is gone and I have to wait for another opening. Therefore if I learn to act quickly and effictively, I can analyze what I did afterword and figure out the holes in my game and what I did wrong. This teaches me not to overthink any situation because that’s when you get yourself into trouble.

    hey coach when are you coming to Reno again?

  6. Coach says:

    Looks like I’ll be in Reno/Sparks on the 15th and 16th of this month. I’m looking forward to training with you.

    Nice one! :) Site is awesome. Today’s workout (Saturday 10/11) read like a Clancy novel.
