Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 9/4/20
THE WEEKLY BRIEF UPDATE
1. 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.

To steal an entire philosophical concept from @chweingroff (he won’t mind)…* . …Training=Rehab, Rehab=Training. . For those following along: This past Tuesday marked the 3-month “anniversary” of my Achilles repair surgery. . Anniversary is kind of a weird word to use here. It’s generally not used to commemorate shitty and altogether nefarious things. . I mean you’d have to be a real a-hole to celebrate Bambi’s mom dying, or, I don’t know, country music…😉 . While the injury itself sucked donkey balls, and the subsequent surgery and shenanigans thereafter were no walk in the park either… . …I will say the past three months, weirdly, has been an assortment of appreciation and perspective. . I’ve learned quite a bit about myself during this process. And while I’m no where near the finish line, it’s been a treat to serve as a source of motivation for others going through the same ordeal. . To that end, my training of late is beginning to see a cross pollination of “rehab” with regular ol’ training. . 1️⃣ Tightrope Walks (or what I like to call Slow Motion Moonwalks). . 2️⃣ Assisted Split Squat (focusing on keeping weight in my forefoot on affected side). . 3️⃣ Deadlifts! Considering I wasn’t walking twelve weeks ago this is pretty cool. . My 3.5 year old can crush me in a race right now, but at least I can deadlift. . Onward! . . #findyourtrainablemenu #achillesgate2020. . * I think.
