011113 – Fun ends soon


Now that I’m T-6 complete I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and rest. But that will be over soon enough. Hopefully it won’t be so crazy that I can’t get these workouts in still.


5X1 Snatch Deadlift + 1 Low-Hang Snatch (2″ from floor) + 1 Hang Snatch @ 85% – rest 60-90 sec.

Mammal Training

3×3 Snatch Balance

3×15 C2B Pull-ups


70 KB Snatches for time @ 32/24kg (apportion reps equally between arms, use any rep scheme)

EMOM beginning at 0:00 – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Muscle-Ups (these are decreasing reps at each minute interval, after finish the final rep – at 4:00 – there are no more required MU).



Snatch – 205, failed a few reps, it’s always tough for me to get going in the morning on the olympic lifts. Also, got a weird strain or something in my forearm before the workout even started and I think it spread to my bicep. Hopefully it’ll be all good for tomorrow and the coming week.

Snatch balance – 135

Conditioning – 6:11 – this was a beast. I was severely winded to say the least.

311013 – Climb to Glory


Today is a rest day, but we all know, there’s no rest for the weary. More importantly, today is the last day in the US for our fellow Pure Mammal member and cofounder Brandon Bennett. He’s getting deployed for 9 months and will be fighting the good fight over there. It also happens to be his birthday. The evil one was born on an evil day! Anyways, even though I haven’t seen him since February, he’ll be sorely missed. Hopefully he keeps posting his times and weights so we can keep track and obviously stay in touch. Anyways, I wish him the best of luck and I’ll be praying for him. Respect to a good soldier, a better friend, and a great brother. Catch you on the flip side, brother. Climb to Glory

Rest Day.

Well, for a week or so I’ll be completely done with some form of training. This means I’ll have time to start programming more of the good ol’ Mammal Training full version. No more of the lite nonsense. So, hopefully you guys enjoyed the 3-4 week “forced deload”

251013 – sorry y’all

Been stupid busy this week. Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with the blog much. If you count what I’m about to do and what I’m doing tomorrow I’ll have only worked out 3x this week. If you know me, you know that never happens. So, I’ll post something for tomorrow, tonight. Until then…

231013 – fun every now and then


Because I fly

I laugh more than other men

I look up an see more than they,

I know how the clouds feel,

What it’s like to have the blue in my lap,

to look down on birds,

to feel freedom in a thing called the stick…

who but I can slice between God’s billowed legs,

and feel then laugh and crash with His step

Who else has seen the unclimbed peaks?

The rainbow’s secret?

The real reason birds sing?

Because I Fly,

I envy no man on earth.
