2017 Finale I probably start as many blogs at one time as I do books. Currently, I have 2 other blogs going as well as 2 books. I bought myself a couple of new books for Christmas, I started one of them and wanted to start the other, but I’m in the middle of an...

After this short blog post about sitting back and doing nothing while someone killed themself with bad habits, I had a long talk with David about what we could do.  After very short deliberation, we have decided that I am going to open up my own books to take a few clients that fall in...

Man! I have been sucking at getting these things out in a timely manner, but you know what they say…better late then never! So, this next riff comes from who many would consider the godfathers of metal. Damn straight! Black Sabbath! This band holds a dear and special place in my heart. I can remember...

After The Rebook Record Breakers meet I realized I needed to step away from the barbell focused on powerlifting. I love the sport but, it put much negative energy into it over the past year. Yes, I did acquire my best total during this time at the 181 weight class but with the recent decisions...

The plot of zombie movies is pretty basic: human kind slowly gets taken over by lifeless creatures that turn each person they bite into another zombie and the small percentage of surviving humans are struggling to survive. It’s a scary concept but clearly fiction; definitely not something we have to worry about….right? Well, I’m here...
