Motivation
During the kids class today I observed something that has been on my mind the last few days.  It started with my own kids a few days ago as they were quick to tell on each other.  They became so concerned with what each other was doing or not doing that they themselves did not accomplish their tasks.  It took them hours to do their Sunday morning chores.  I saw this again in the kids class today.  Some kids were so eager to make it known that someone wasn’t doing the right movement that they stopped focusing on what they were supposed to be doing.  I am not immune to this. I find myself getting so worked up about what others are doing that I lose focus on what I need to do.  Even if what they are doing might effect me.  It is much worse to complain about  or worry about what is happening when that energy could be positively directed towards things I can control and do.  I am working on staying more positive.  I find taking a moment to inventory all the good things I have in life puts some of the trivial day to day stuff in a better perspective.  Can you think of ways that you can change so that you can be more positive.  Work on it and be awesome.
Strength
 Deadlift is the main focus of today’s workout.  We are going to spend more time to see if we can set some new Personal Records on the Deadlift.  We will be watching closely for good form.  We don’t want to see bad technique.  Today is going to be awesome.  You are going to crash through perceived barriers and start to realize your strength potential.
Workout Strategy
 The Workout is supposed to be quick.  I didn’t say easier because no workout should be easy.  Plus this is a bench mark workout if you can do Double Unders.  The work load will be on the shorter side because you just spent a lot of energy on the Deadlift.  We are not rushing the Strength today.  The get More Awesome movement today is weighted Good Mornings.  The same movement we do with the PVC pipe can be down with a barbell.  Start with a light weight today.
