864 STRONG – Gunny’s Blog / Tuesday 05.17.2022


Be humble and consider others MORE important than yourselves.
-Philippians 4:3

Your religion is NOT what you do on Sunday. It’s how you live Monday through Saturday.
-Shannon L. Alder

“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
-Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 1981

You either live a self directed life or a God directed life. Your choice. There is no in between.

If YOU don’t support your community – who will?

Nutrition Tip: Don’t eat anything that your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. Do you know what ingredients are in your food today?
Can you pronounce them? “Good food isn’t cheap, but cheap food isn’t good!”

Smile and wave boys. Just smile and wave.

Today’s schedule: 5:15a.m./8:00a.m./4:15p.m./5:15p.m./6:15p.m.

#1 Goal today – Get STRONGER. Strength (VERY HEAVY) is our priority today. See you in the gym….. J&J

Before you start today’s training – Goat Work/Skill Work. Mobility/Warm-up / Can’t or Won’t? What’s holding you back?

864 Strength + Conditioning – The Daily 864 Grind: 21-15-9

The strongest (mentally and physically) are the ones that just show up each day prepared to do hard work even if they don’t know what the workout consist of. STRONG or SOFT? Your choice. Hit it hard or move over! Be STRONG!

Social Media tip of the day: “An open Facebook page is simply a psychiatric dry erase board that screams, “Look at me. I am insecure. I need your reaction to what I am doing, but you’re not cool enough to be my friend. Therefore, I will just pray you see this because the approval of God is not all I need.” (-Shannon Alder) Take a look around. Take a close look at the post you see today. Social media has infected the world with a sickening virus called vanity. Look at me. Have the wisdom to show restraint. –Proverbs 23:4

Bench Press / BW
Push-ups / HR
Strict C2B Pull-ups

Just because you are offended, doesn’t mean you are right.

On this day in history – May 17, 1875 – The first Kentucky Derby was run at Louisville, KY.

RX = Form / Full ROM = Legit. Move fast and get reps. Show up and grind!

RX Movement Standards –  There is no almost RX. It’s 100% RX’d or Scaled. Scale based on your strength/motivation level. Movement standards will always be covered before the training starts. If you are not sure about a particular movement/exercise please be patient until we cover it as a group.

You guys are awesome!
