I have gotten a questions about how my rehab is coming along. Here is a video I made today during training. It was a light full body day, as yesterday was a heavy full body day. I love training the full body almost everyday. Not many people can handle it, and depending on your goals, it might not be the best training style for you, everything depends. This certainly is not the best training rehab protocol for everyone, but based on my ability prior to my injury, this is what I am capable of doing now, just 5 weeks after a grade 3 MCL tear. The best thing you can do for an injury is prevent it. Smart training can help prevent injuries, but sometimes shit happens. When it does, if you are stronger, not only will the injury be not as bad, but the recovery will be much easier. If I wasn't as strong as I was before my injury, I wouldn't be doing what I am doing today. Start early and never quit, it is the best possible thing you can do.

Day 1, we've come a long way
Barbell complexes, I love em, you love em, we all love em!!! If I had a favorite ice cream flavor, it would be "Barbell Complexes and Sweaty Man Cream." Wait, no, that's kinda gross, cream isn't paleo. Screw it, we would just call it "Barbell Scream" for short, it would catch on, I know it.
Anyway, here is a fun little video of some complexes we did on Christmas Eve. I love the barbell, I really do. But I also like to sleep around with other bells as well. I got this little crew of kettlebells that come out and dance once in a while, man are they sweet. Their bottoms are so round and perfect, I love putting my hands all over em. I also know this group of idiots, dumbbells really, they like to come out and get freaky in pairs a lot, sometimes they even bring their knucklehead friends, the damn sandbags. They can be real dicks sometimes. We didn't get a chance to see em this time, but soon enough, they will make an appearance.
Train hard, and please post some of your favorite complexes and equipment pairs you like to combine for a great session.
