Supreme Strength and Random Blurbs

Supreme Strength Seminar

Hello world!  I wanted to make sure that you all know about Todd and John Gaglione’s Supreme Strength seminar taking place in Long Island, NY on March 31st.  I was lucky to be a guinea pig for this program, and TRUST me- it works!  I was able to maintain the program while dealing with:

  • cutting weight for a grappling tournament (got down to 149lbs)
  • travelling to FL for Thanksgiving (Tuesday-Friday), then immediately to Vegas for Dustin’s first fight in the UFC (Tuesday-Sunday), and then to PA for Christmas!
  • opening a gym and building a business from the ground up
  • and the regular complications that are called everyday life

With all of that being said, I just finished the program last week, and I have been testing my weights this week.  Here’s what we have so far:

  • put 40lbs on my bench
  • put 40lbs on my deadlift
  • still need to test overhead press and squats
  • gained around 10lbs
  • dropped bodyfat (very visible abs, obliques, serratus)
  • increased my conditioning

The only odd thing is that my beard became more red.  However, I have noticed a correlation between red beards, strength, and just being awesome in general.  More on that later…

Here are my deadlifts from this morning (yes, I need to tuck my chin- I’ve got my struggles too! lol):

Here is a clip of Dustin and I going through one of the workouts last week:

Trey Rogers is a Beast

For those of you that missed Trey’s fight on Friday night, this kid is a beast.  He pulled hs groin in the first round and carrie on to a unanimous decision regardless.  DOMINANT!  I see tons of potential in this guy…  I cannot wait to see him down in VA cross-training with my guys in the near future.  If you missed his train-up montage that Todd posted last week, enjoy:

Shannon Manning

If you missed this video of Shannon Manning from Todd’s crew’s gym in Bellefonte, PA last week, you HAVE to see this.  While this is the weight that I typically do my bulgarians with, it is still impressive:
