In addition to all of that I’m helping five of our beautiful ladies prepare for their first powerlifting meet at the end of October in Morehead,Kentucky. This is been a lot of fun for me, as I have helped many people get ready for powerlifting meets in the past, including my business partner, Molly Galbraith. All of these individuals have always worked out with me as a training partner and never as clients. It is so much easier to coach when your not lifting yourself :) I’ve been using Jim Wendler’s 531 with them and I’m excited to see their results on game day.

The one thing I need to make more time for is my radio show. I really enjoy using it to talk to some pretty amazing people and just help others so as I get more help online I plan to put aside more time for the radio show.
One of my favorite shows is with Kiefer. I still continue to use a Paleo version of Carb Back Loading and loving it. Laird Kiefer #2
My own training has been going very well considering how busy I have been. I'm keeping things super super simple and I feel really good right now. I’ve been getting a lot out of my meditation and I’m doing a very good job of getting myself relaxed for a decent hour. Joel Jamieson’s HRV app continues to be a great accountability tool for me and allows me to adjust my training intensity and volume accordingly.
Training over the last several weeks:
620 spider bar PR
I was also lucky enough to be on an amazing round table with some amazingly strong guys and great coaches at Darkside Strength and Conditioning in Louisville KY

I also have some cool projects in the works with my long-term client and friend Eric Banks MTV
Eric lost 50 lbs in 5 weeks working out 3 times a week and walking daily. Eric has done a great job with the 80/20 rule and has not only continued to keep the weight off but is getting stronger and fitter as we speak.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
