Weekly Workout For Men: Improve your gymnastics skills, and you will most likely get your first muscle-up

I have been dealing with an injury in my shoulder for a couple of weeks now.

To be honest, it has been bothering me for quite a while. I though that I had a tear in my labrum or rotator cuff, even though I had full range of motion and could do heavy lifts.

So, I reluctantly went to the doctor after a workout that I had to stop in the middle of because something didn’t feel right. When I say doctor I mean Orthopedic Surgeon. He performed several tests on me and his diagnosis was all but helpful.

7 things that you didn't know about Stephen Dull and the 360 Man Project

This post might sound a bit self serving, but I assure you it’s not.

I just realize that there are a lot of articles on this website, but not a whole lot of information about me, and I want people who are reading this to know more about me and take a peek behind the curtain into my life.

There are two reasons for me doing this:

  • Because it makes me more real to you

Hopefully, this will help us to become more acquainted and for you to see that I am not a robot, or just someone behind a computer spewing information that has no merit.

Thoughts on Digital Minimalism and going off the Grid: Getting off social media for 30 days

Thoughts on Digital Minimalism and going off the Grid: Getting off social media for 30 days

This past weekend, I was able to do something I haven't done in a while...

I read two books.

These were not only books that interested me, they were books that convicted me to be honest with myself and confront some issues that I have.

What I found out, might shock you.

But first, let me give you a little background.

I grew up in a very small town called Mackay, Idaho. It had a population of no more that about 500 people. I knew everyone, and they knew me. In fact, most people were very polite and would wave and say hello to each-other, neighbors would help out if you were in trouble, or needed a hand.

Whichever it is, this article is meant to help you start asking the right questions, and to find the answers if they need finding out.

Weekly Workout For Men: Learn the Power Clean, one of the best movements for your traps muscles

I first learned of Power Cleans, Hang Cleans and CrossFit when I had stumbled across a video of Annie Thorisdottir performing a workout called DT.

“DT” is by definition:

5 Rounds For Time

This workout is a Hero WOD (“Workout of the Day”), done in memory of a fallen soldier, Law Enforcement or Fireman. DT is done in honor of US Air Force SSgt Timothy P. Davis, 28, who was killed on Feburary, 20 2009 supporting operations in OEF when his vehicle was struck by an IED.

“At this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking.”
