Another week of lockdown.
Or was it a month?
I'm not sure anymore.
Luckily, here at HQ we are healthy and in a good place to move forward when this crisis passes.
I hope you are in a similar position.
Here's what distracted me this week:
The Grafters Podcast
Last week, we welcomed Alan Thrall to the podcast. We chatted with the lion of lifting about his early days in fitness, adjusting to life after the military, and his current coaching and content production.
I absolutely loved this interview.
You can listen to it below:
The Metalheads Podcast
Episode 2 of my podcast with the grumpy metalhead Shrubs666.
Many recreational powerlifters worry about concepts they have no business worrying about.
This results in paralysis by analysis and less progress rather than more.

My Clients Are Heroes
Strengthening Those Hip Flexors
I've been reading Atomic Habits by James Clear. It's wonderful and my productivity is already up.
By reading this book, you'll be able to set your habits up for success and navigate those times when your motivation is low.
Thanks, James. You are a hero.
Vernon Griffith- Hip Aeroplane Progression
Vern keeps knocking the content and the training ideas out of the water. He is an amazing coach. Follow him for more amazing ideas and concepts.
Big thanks to Chris Golding for bringing the above to my attention.
That's all for this week.
See you soon.
