Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 8/28/20
THE WEEKLY BRIEF UPDATE
1. #Achillesgate2020 Update
I started doing standing calf-raises in rehab this week.
2. You can now purchase CORE @ Home for whatever it is you want to pay.
During quarantine I started a platform where I’d deliver 20-40 minute workouts that could be performed in everyone’s living room using minimal equipment.
In all I curated 36 workouts using nothing but bodyweight, bands, and kettlebells and/or dumbbells. With many people still reticent to head back to their regular gyms (not to mention the scarcity of gym equipment out there to purchase) I figured this would be a nice opportunity to help.
Whether you want to spend $1 or $100, the workouts are ready and available to start.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
I know it’s hard. Really, I do.
Whether it’s performance related, aesthetics, or even rehab, stop comparing your progress to others.
Just because someone else’s progress came seemingly quicker, it still doesn’t negate or lessen YOUR progress.

I’m going GHOST PROTOCOL! . At the end of my training session today (I did upper body and my pecs could cut diamonds, FYI) I wanted to up the ante on my Achilles rehab. . I took a bit of initiative and preemptively added in some standing calf raise isometrics ahead of my rehab schedule, because, GHOST PROTOCOL Y’ALL. I live life dangerously. . Nothing crazy – a few sets of 10-15s holds – using the bands to provide a degree of deloading. . It…was…hard. . But a welcome challenge. . Additionally, today also included some 90/90 lift-offs courtesy of @davidgreyrehab . . 6 reps at each position with a 10s isometric on the LAST rep. You can swipe to see that vid, if for nothing else to watch @drlewisconsulting performing what’s now referred to as the “Vernon Swoop Lunge” in the background, named after @vernongriffith4 . . See, that’s what’s up: place attractive person in background performing a legit exercise = increases people’s attention twofold…😂 . . #findyourtrainablemenu #achillesgate2020
