Back in the Saddle

Thought I'd give everyone a quick update since I'm WAY AHEAD of schedule today (for once!)

- Training is still going well; I've had two productive low-body sessions this week, and the body is responding really well. I'm starting to crank the volume/intensity up, so we'll see how things are going, but I think I'm getting my recovery dialed in.

- Upper body is coming along as well, albeit a little slower. I've been hitting the push-ups and face pulls heavy, trying to achieve better structural balance overall.

- At the advice of Geoff Neupert, I purchased a 24 kg kettlebell and started doing some swings/GPP work. Well, it's not really GPP work, it's more like "Get ready for the friggin' beach in April" work! ;) I'm already as white as they come, so white and soft just doesn't cut it.

- I just sent in a 15 page e-report on mobility for vertical jump training; Virgil Aponte is bringing the book together, and there are some solid contributors on the list. When I have more updates on its release, I'll let you know.

- I also just got off the phone with Kevin Larrabee; Kevin does the FitCast and FitCast Insider podcasts, and this was another hour long FitCast Insider with me discussing athletic injuries and how to prevent them. If you're a strength coach or athlete, you want to check these out!

That's it from me - hope everyone out there is doing well!

Stay strong

Wow - it's been a little while, hasn't it? Just when I think I'm ready to get consistent with the 'ol blog I totally space it for almost a month. Yikes!

Here's a quick overview of what I've been working on in the past weeks:

- I attended a 3-day seminar to become a certified Z-Health practitioner. I think there's some pretty cool stuff here, and I'll be interested to see how it affects my training going forward.

- Speaking of training, it's still going well. I've adjusted a few things with my squats and pulls, and while the weights were relatively light I was really pleased with the SPEED. I'll keep you posted moving forward and hopefully do a mini-article for T-Nation on the topic.

- When it rains it pours w/regards to articles; here are the latest two in case you missed them:

* The Hardcore Lunge - T-Nation
* Gittin' Diesel in Your Own Home Gym - Elite Fitness Systems

I'm actually working on two or three more that I hope to have out within the next 4-6 weeks.

- The Bulletproof Knees manual is off for copy editing; things are coming together on this project, so I hope to release it in the next month.

- Oh yeah, remember that project I did a while back with Bill Hartman? You know, Inside-Out? We're moving forward on part two, and you WON'T be dissapointed. Stay tuned for more info.

- Finally, I've been working to revamp the website. I've added a section for archived newsletters, and updated my Products page to keep people in touch w/the great products I've reviewed.

As you can see, just because I haven't been blogging doesn't mean I haven't been busy!

If you take the time to read this, drop me a line or reply to this post to keep me in check. I really do enjoy it, I just tend to forget about it sometimes!

Stay strong
