Twice a month I have been making the two and a half hour drive to Dayton Ohio to Gravity Spa to use their float tank. Let me tell you, it has been well worth it. I have never been so chilled out in my life. I highly suggest you find one of these tanks and use it on a regular basis.
Below are five videos that are part of an upcoming article I wrote on the importance of low threshold stability work. I highly suggest using some (or all) of these exercises on your off days. I like to pair them together, circuit style, to raise GPP. Give it a shot.
My training was going real well until i was rear ended two weeks ago. That would be my fourth car wreck in 3 years :) None my fault I might add. Still I don't feel fell very good at all so i have dialed things way back. Here I am doing some back to back speed pulls (an idea I got from Brandon Lilly) just before the wreck.
Singles done with 405.
The below was done this past Friday 1/11 took the weight down on the squat to 330 and did some really deep pause box squat. I like doing these from time to time. Short rest I do a triple at the end.
Today I did some floor press and some upper body rep work.

My lifting has been going fairly well consider how little time I have had to do so with everything I have going on. One of my Favorite things to do is pull with chains, it allows me to pull heavy with out getting absolutely crushed from it. I have been given the name "T-Rex" by Mike Robertson due to my super duper short arms and super long torso. This forces be to be a little creative when training the deadlift.
