Thrash Session 16July2012

The true test of these workouts starts tomorrow morning! I am going to be doing some testing for a brand new program here soon. It is not a work out program, but work out tracking program so I will need some committed people to help me and this great program out. We are really going to put it to the test and give some good feedback. It’s a relationship that I am looking forward to starting and continuing. This product is revolutionary and something I believe in. So if you want to be one of the first to participate in this program let me know!! Click here and thrash away!

The program is evolving

Hey! So this program has and does work for me, but as I start to continue on, I see improvements that can be made and certain aspects that I believe will reach a broader crowd! For example being more detailed on the lifting cycles, adding in an endurance portion. Not everyone wants to be ripped. I know my wife wants to be “cut” but not add mass, therefore instead of weight training there will be an optional endurance/speed training portion that you CAN choose to do at your will. I must tell you though that the strength training and WOD’s we do at the the high intensity will increase your endurance. I’ll do a piece on that this week on how but once again this blog is for everyone, so we want to make sure that we hit the masses on that. I will also be tweaking and adding more movements to our warm up. Not that what I have programmed isn’t good, it’s just I find doing the same exact kind of warm ups on a rotation and not specifically detailed (I.M.O) gets old. I will start posting videos here soon! Once again this is just the start! Soon there should be a video with every work out or two coming as well as videos running through the stretching with you. So keep thrashing and know I am working on my end to give you a high detailed and effective product! Even though this blog is free, I want to make sure we are changing lives out there and having fun while doing it!

Thrash Session 12July2012

Today is my first day back to work and I have so much going on in my life right now. I absolutely love being a corpsman but it can have it’s downside. For example, I do all the training that the Marines do minus some schools that I didn’t get to complete in the past, nor have had the time for in the present. But my job is to ensure they are 100% medically fit at all times. This means the death of real corpsman is involved and it’s called PAPERWORK! I hate it! I’d rather patrol for 24 hours than look at another sheet of medical paperwork!

Anyways today thrash session is the 4th workout of the CrossFit Games 2012 Regionals. Since I choked pretty hard I didn’t get to participate in it. So do yourself a por favor and click here to read today’s thrash session.

Thrash Sess. 6July2012

I hope everyone is taking a rest day at some point! I know most blogs post a rest day but everyone works out different days depending on their schedule. The fact is this blog is to help ALL people who wish to improve fitness and not just program for those competition athletes. It can be used as a competitive training program with future modifications that will personalize and customize the work out for each person by using percentages in direct correlations with repetitions. However, give me a little bit to work on that. I don’t just have one full time job, I have about 3 now. Corpsman, Dad, Husband and soon to be business person so I am doing my best to be proficient at them all. So here is your thrash session today.
