Truth Discipline exercise of the day:

Let's make it a goal to catch ourselves making an excuse tomorrow. Make an effort to listen to yourself making the excuse, see what your brain is trying to convince you of, and then doing what needs to be done.

Workout for February 6th, 2014

We will be working the squat. Quick note: remember that if you cannot squat with a flat back, hips below knee crease, on your heels, knees out, we want to continue working the goblet squat. This is EXTREMELY important. It can be hard to stay patient and stick with it, but it will pay huge dividends in strength, mobility, and overall quality of movement down the road. Ask those of us in the gym who are always working that movement in the gym how much improvement can be made in a few short weeks by making the goblet squat an important part of your training.
