Scott's meaningless thought of the day.

Happy Tuesday!
For the integrity of this fitness related site I will share with you my tip of the day, but first...

Scott’s meaningless thoughts of the Day:
Our political system is crazy... it has evolved to become laughable. It doesn’t matter what side of the aisle you sit on. If one side says the earth is round the other will say, “No, it’s flat!” (and under their breath say, I know it is really round, but I will never agree with “them”).

After over 2 years and nearly 35 million dollars, the Mueller report concluded “Mueller Finds No Trump-Russia Conspiracy, but Stops Short of Exonerating President on Obstruction”... what does that mean? “I Can’t find any evidence, but I still think he did it”? Now there will likely be an investigation of the investigators??? I am sure we can find better things to do with OUR time and money...POTUS aside, you see this all the time. Someone gets accused of something terrible, then gets proved innocent, only to find the court of public opinion has already sentenced you to death due to their ignorance?

Very confusing.

I believe in hard work... always, I believe in helping people be/ get better, I believe “things”, and respect are earned... not deserved or given. I believe there are 3 sides to every story (what one says, what the other says, and what actually happen). I also believe, I must listen to all sides before I make a decision or pass judgment. I believe in doing the right thing ... always, and fighting for what is right. I believe that our futures would be brighter if more parenting was done at home (I was one of the fortunate ones that had excellent parenting). I believe we have a lot of great educators (teachers) out there for our children... many of which do not receive the resources they need. I believe those educators are not the only ones responsible for teaching our children... this also starts at home... I also believe Michael Jackson and Elvis are still alive living an a private island somewhere :) Enjoy your your Tuesday.

Fitness Tip of the Day:
Listen to your body.  Your body talks to you constantly, unfortunately, most of us ignore this.  Are you unusually sore, bloated, fatigued?  Your body may be trying to speak to you.

Today during my 5 am Garage workout, after my 2nd working set (after 2 warm-up sets) I started to feel a twinge in my left hip flexor.  This is the point that you need to listen to your body.  Most of my career has been working with people that did not listen and would have continued to "grind" and complete their prescribed sets.  Today I listened, and cut my squat work a little short.  I continue with the program and replaced my dead lifts with an "accessory movement".

My lesson today is simple, listen to your body.  Change course for the day so that you do not get derailed for an extended period of time.  Results do not occur when you are sidelined due to injury.

Train Smart, and Win the Day!
