Hail to the Dinosaurs!
Three quick notes, and then we'll

4. Last Night's Workout
This is one of my favorite times of
the year for training. It's anywhere
from crisp and cool to downright
So I bundle up in several layers,
throw on an old knit hat (the kind
Sylvester Stallone wears when he
does roadwork in one of the Rocky
movies), slap my hands together a
couple of times, and say to myself:
"Let's do it!"
Then I set up the outdoor training
area at Dino Headquarters. That
means sweeping away the leaves
and the twigs - moving the stall
mats out of the garage, and then
moving the barbell and the plates
of the basement.
Getting set-up is a good pre-warm-
Then I do the real warm-up. It lasts
about 15 minutes or so. When it's
hot, I do a 10 minute warm-up, but
I add 5 minutes when it's cool or
And then I train.
Last night I did split style snatches.
As always, I started light and worked
up slowly and steadily, focusing on
speed and perfect form on each lift.
I do three to five singles at each
weight in my progression. So the
whole workout is a long series of

I don't time it. It just works out to
about one minute. Sometimes a bit
more if I add weight before the next
I film each rep. After the set is over,
I watch the lift on video, looking at
my form, and focusing on things I
can do to make the next lift faster,
smoother and more explosive.
Last night's workout took about an
hour and 15 minutes - and when it
was finished, I felt GREAT.
There's nothing like a hard workout
on a cool, crisp Autumn evening to
perk you up and get your blood
I put the weights away, moved the
stall mats back into the garage,
locked up, and went upstairs.
Trudi had dinner ready when I
walked in the door.
That was a bit of a surprise, but
hey, I'll take it.
After all - I earned that dinner.
As always, thanks for reading and
have a great day. If you train
today, make it a good one!
