Hail to the Dinosaurs!
I had a great workout last night,
and I thought I'd tell you about
It was one of those old school
workouts you see so often here
at Dino Headquarters.
I started with 10 minutes of
stretching and loosening up drills.
These include things like overhead
squats with a broomstick, shoulder
dislocates, and even some slow speed

that will be another training day. I'll
do a different workout, with different
exercises, but it will be pretty similar.
That's the way it is at Dino Headquarters:
basic OL training 3x per week. In other

They focus on the iron. And they focus on
getting it done.

hands, grabbed the bar and had a great
workout. And that's what Dinos do.
As always, thanks for reading and have a
great day. If you train today, make it a
