Motivation
Summer time awesome.  So many of you have seen my son Daniel working in the gym.  He has taken over the gym cleaning responsibilities.  Some have made the comment that “you’re putting your son to work?”  Yes, I offered him the job and he eagerly excepted the challenge.  I have given him a list of tasks he needs to complete and an agreed upon wage he receives for completing the work.  He also can earn bonuses based on how well he does.  So far three days in he is doing a remarkable job.  He is eager to work and to show how reliable he can be.  I wish he would do his chores at home this well.  While it is early and the novelty of the job will probably wear off I can always hope for the best.  Teaching our children to love work is the greatest lesson we can give.  Having them work beside us, forcing us to lead by example is a win win situation.
Strength
 Consistency.  The boring and mundane tasks are often the most important to master.  Are you getting stronger?  Are you moving better?  If not, why.  Let us know your concerns and then follow our plan to help you.
 Workout Strategy
 This is a deceiving workout.  Push Ups take a good amount of mid stability to do the movement.  I do not want any part of your legs touching the ground during the push up movement.  Keeping your body in a rigid plank position after doing a ballistic flexion movement like knees to elbows or Toes to Bar will get difficult.  With this is mind keep your sets small.  Think about what you have learned about pacing and your abilities.  Don’t go to failure on the push ups or you will not recover for the next set.
