From Coach Z himself
Here’s my confession…..
After 15 years of being misinformed, I realized I was brainwashed like most other people. I followed the crappy training routines and methods in the magazines that had been fabricated and never proven in the trenches. I was determined to find the right way and nothing was going to stop me, NOTHING!
The So Called “Rules” You’ve Been Brainwashed to Follow Have Limited Your Potential in Gaining Serious Strength
The crazy thing is that I discovered these ‘Underground’ methods by accident. I had no money to purchase the fancy equipment that I thought I had to have to train others effectively. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get the “job” done!
I had a small corner of my Dad’s garage to train my athletes using my 300 lb Costco barbell set and a pair of 50 and 100 lb dumbbells. The problem was that my athletes were too weak to use the 50 lb dumbbells let alone the 100 lb dumbbells! Rest assured this “weakness” didn’t last too long!
For a moment I thought we were screwed because we had no fancy equipment!

push up then tap left hand to right shoulder, push up then tap right hand to left shoulder.

t stabilization

push up then rotate around and reach the right arm into the air behind you (look at your hand), push up then rotate around and reach the left arm into the air behind you (look at your hand.)

How is your training coming along?

It's coming. Last week had some alternative methods like chopping ice & shoveling for 3 days.

I'm going to test myself out today after work.

This morning I was abruptly reminded of why that 24/24/24/12 wo sucks so bad. My legs even hurt when I'm sitting still. I did that with the vball girls on Wed. As a group we finished in 16:06.
