Fun in the Sun!

Decided to play some Beach Tennis, with those small rackets. My wife and I love doing this during the summer. Great workout for the legs, cardio as well as phemonenal REFLEX training. 25 minute of this is plenty.

Prior to that, Yoana and I did a couple sets of deadlifts, totally random. It always seems like we respond better to deadlifting when we just instinctively throw it in, almost like a game. We don't even consider it training, more PRACTICE, which is what I like. When you think of practining a SKILL rather than training, much more rewarding.

Warm up:

185 x1,205 x 1, 225 x 1, 240 x 1, 315 x 1

365 x 1 That's it!

Yoana got a PR - and she hasn't been deadlifting too much. She was WAY strong today, bar just flew up. My belief is that her nervous system was fresh. She beat her previous PR of 235 and today she pulled an easy, and I mean EASY 240.

Bring on the summer baby!!!!!

Man I love the sun!

I always tell people train to enjoy life outside of the gym. I miss the beaches so bad and am so jealous that you guys are so close. It is great that you are making good use of it.
Can't wait to see the book. I am so lookingforward to seeing it. Congratulations to both of you:)
