We’re exactly one week away from Thanksgiving, and the onslaught of out-towners traveling to over-drink, over-eat, and over-nap.
It’s my favorite holiday. And it’s going to be glorious.
One of the guys who will be coming in from Wisconsin is Ryan’s brother-in-law Marc. He’s an awesome dude, and a loves fun.
He’s one of those guys who has let himself go a bit, but when you play golf with him, you can tell he was a legit athlete (played soccer in college).

Instead, focus on five simple movements (in no particular order) in your workouts:
I’d love to tell you that I created this magical 5-part framework, but athletes have been doing it for the last hundred years.
So, why do you need me?
Other than my witty, inspirational, and downright educational emails I send every day, you need someone to choose the specific exercises, in the correct order, utilizing the proper reps and sets, tempos, rest cycles, etc. to get the most bang for your training sessions.
That’s where things do get a bit complicated.
But you just keep it simple, and let me worry about the details.
