I have not posted in a while, since getting a new job here in Baltimore, and I have not been getting the workouts in as I once was. As I move on in my life and grow older and wiser, I have noticed a change in my body and thus a change in my workouts. When I reflect back, I have achieved every goal I initially pursued, from getting a 30 in vertical, squatting over 400 lbs, benching 300 lbs, and running in 5k and 10k events, but now I am in a state of “what the heck do I do now?” Read the rest of this entry »
