Squats and Vitamin D

Time for some squats and Vitamin D at Dino Headquarters!

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

It was a cold but sunny day, so I
decided to train outside.

Vitamin D is a good thing.

I bundled up. Three layers on top,
with the last layer being my York
Barbell Club hoodie (purchased
from John Wood). It's gray with
black letters (guy colors) and it's
nice and warm.

I went down to the basement,
opened the garage door, and set
up the rubber mats to make my
outdoor lifting area.

Then I moved the squat stands
and the the barbell outside.

The plates came next.

The drive-way was now a fully
equipped, fully functional old
school gym.

You can see photos of it on my
Instagram page:


And you can read more about
it - and see some embedded
video - in the February issue
of the Dinosaur Files:


I warmed up, got loose and ready
to go, and then I hit it.

Front squats, starting light and
working up to five heavy singles.

Finished up, put the squat stands
and the barbell back in the
basement, and put the rubber
mats back in the garage.

It was a simple drive-way once
more, instead of a world-class

I went upstairs to grab some

I had earned it.

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik
