Hi, I'm Daniel. I once was a man who had become overweight, discouraged with my status in life, and unhappy with the person I had become in general. In February 2011, I took a long look in the mirror and realized that I was capable of much more and deserved better for myself and my family. I then began a journey of transformation into the man I want to be by pursuing my passion for physical fitness, reevaluating my career path, and refocusing my attention on designing the future instead of dwelling on the past or stalling in the present. My inaugural campaign for greatness began on this platform roughly 2 years ago and provided the perfect outlet for the random reflections along the way. My ultimate success has yet to be measured other than in baby steps, but one thing I am certain of is that I have made sure strides of improvement and anyone can do the same if they so choose. I hope you enjoy my journey in my training.

7.20.12 W20D3 WSBish(alternate workout) Curlbro Day

Took the day off from all things pressing.  My shoulders are already thanking me.  It felt weird to not do some kind of major lift today.  When I first got into lifting, I used to dedicate a day to arms altogether.  Now, I’m not really sure why I did.  Don’t get me wrong, today was fun to just bro out, but it’s not something I want to do every week.

The one thing I regret from this morning - I didn’t fully embrace the curlbro mentality by doing curls in the squat rack.  I actually planned on it.  But the quarter-squat twins (I’ve talked about them before) were actually doing curls in the squat rack, followed by quarter squats in the Smith machine, followed by dumbbell stiff-legged deadlifts…I shit you not.  They were supersetting all 3.  Sad thing was, their DB SLDL were lighter than what I was using for DB curls. 

Enjoy your Friday, folks!  I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Don’t forget to squat something tomorrow if you haven’t already!
