Stuff to Read While You’re Stuck At Home Not Wearing Pants: 6/19/20
THE WEEKLY BRIEF UPDATE
1. I’ll start with a brief #achillesgate2020 update.
I had my first post op with my surgeon earlier this week and, once the faint Cheetos smell dissipated after removing the bandaging I had on for two straight weeks, the doc said everything looked swell.
I was quite shocked at the lack of blood and gore:
Stitches were taken out, rubbing alcohol never felt so lovely, and I was put into a short cast that I’ll be wearing for the next two weeks.
The goal now is not to be an asshat and do anything stupid to risk stretching the Achilles.
I guess that means I won’t be participating in this year’s Hunger Games.
2. Check out my latest podcast appearance on Coach Gethin Radio:
3. Oh, hey, have you checked out my new CORE @ Home platform yet?
It’s designed so that I can deliver workouts you can perform at home – pants optional – using minimal equipment.
You have two options:
1. Subscribe for FREE and receive one workout per week.
2. Subscribe for $29.00 and receive three workouts per week (in addition to special bonus content).1
My hope is that it helps take the thinking out of things and keeps people more accountable to workout more consistently.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
Hitting the gym after a 3+ month “layoff” and then testing your 1RM on everything is akin to turning the ignition on your car on a sub-zero day and immediately revving it from 0-60.
Things may go fine, but the risk/reward is definitely skewed toward the former.
