My path, my rules, my way

It’s been quite a while since I have written anything for this blog. I said several times I wanted to get back on this horse and just deliver content but everything sidetracked me along the way. No excuse for that, just complete and total apathy towards writing in general.

I have been through a ton of changes in the past few months that have changed me for the better. Some of which were completely unexpected, some were cognizant decisions on my part, all of which I embrace fully.

My training has shifted into strictly aesthetic-type training for the time being. […]

Updates and News

I have recently starting reworking the second Ashman Strength System book and it is going very smooth and filled with solid tweaks to the original program such as: template for power athletes, modifying the original template for speed work, less max effort work, bodybuilding style training, and more.

These have been added to give the user a more well-rounded selection to choose from in their own training and allows the template to be further customized across a wide variety of training needs.

This is still a couple months away from completion as it will contain a lot of information to […]

The beginning of my lifting journey by Dan Hentges

For about a year I have been lifting off and on with a fantastic training partner and great friend in Daniel Hentges. Ever since we’ve met he has been a supportive person in my life in ways that describe the meaning of lifelong friend.

Short term progress is possible

One of my Physique competitor clients, Jeff Dennis, competed at his first show in April.

He didn’t finish top 3 but we did get some great feedback from the judges as to what we needed to improve on for his next show. The original plan was to gain some more size, work on the weakpoints, and pick a show several months down the line with a better package.

Jeff had other ideas and found one much, much sooner.

This leaves us with little time to prepare but with enough time to work hard to make some changes.

In 5 weeks […]

Big Pharma is killing me

Nothing like some atrial fibrillation and subsequent side effects of it to really make you change gears in training and life.

For the uninitiated, let’s take a ride on a timeline to give you the quick and dirty recap.

Beginning of Oct – Come down with strep and flu.

Middle of Oct – trying to recover, stomach is screwy, can’t digest food, can’t lift hard, always tired, starting to see edema in my ankles.

Beginning of Nov – Relentless Detroit. I fly up, I compete, I shit the bed because I feel like hell and edema worsens as does shortness […]
