Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 11/20/20
THE WEEKLY BRIEF UPDATE
1. You can now purchase CORE @ Home for whatever it is you want to pay.
During the first 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.
Too, now that many parts of the US (and world) have started to implement a second wave of shut-downs, this resource is timely.
Whether you want to spend $1 or $100 (if the latter, we’ll be BFFs forever), the workouts are ready and available to start.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
10% of your workouts = you feel like He-Man and crush it.
10% of your workouts = you feel like a dumpster fire.
The remaining 80% = you go in, do the work, hit all your reps, and leave.
THAT’s where you make progress.
By showing up consistently.

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Barbell Rehab – Dr. Michael Mash
This resource is designed for serious gym rats (or for those who’s livelihood is to breed competent gym rats) on how to use the barbell – and not an endless parade of corrective exercises – to prevent/reduce pain & to improve performance.
Dr. Mash goes out of his way to cover everything, from assessment to troubleshooting the most popular lifts, with pristine precision. It’s undoubtedly a wonderful resource for anyone interested in lifting heavy things.
He’s offering my readers a $50 discount off the regular price this week only.
And the offer ends TOMORROW (11/21).
Go HERE and enter the coupon code TONYG50 when prompted.
Why Soreness Isn’t the Goal of Working Out – Tommy Royer
It’s to get big biceps, duh…;o)
Your First Baby Photos – Robert Aguero-Hoffman
Heads up: make sure a box of Kleenex is near.
Graceful words from an acquaintance/colleague of mine who went through something I wouldn’t wish on anyone.
