Wendy and I did our WOW’s at UE after I got off work. It was later in the day than we usually work out (which Wendy hates), but we both had great workouts.
Doug: MedX Overhead Press, Nautilus Plate Load Biceps (SS retrofits), Nautilus Plate Load Triceps (SS retrofits), EZ bar reverse curl (with Fat Gripz), MedX Leg Press
Wendy: MedX Compound Row (SS retrofits/fall-off cam), MedX Chest Press, SS Systems Pulldown, MedX Overhead Press, MedX Leg Press, manual neck flexion/extension
Wendy has had mild post workout soreness, I had mild ROBAT, likely related to working 12 out of 14 days.
I wanted to give a heads up that I will be participating in the celebration of Clarence Bass’s 75th birthday and launch of his new book Take Charge: Fitness at the Edge of Science. The event will be held at the University of Texas’s Stark Center on Friday, September 27,2013 and runs from 10:30am-5pm. Clarence sent me a signed advance copy of Take Charge and I must say this is one of the best and most inspirational books I have ever read. I have all of Clarence’s books, and this one is probably my favorite. In every book Clarence writes, he gives you a totally honest insight into his training and lifestyle. He not only details his successes, but lays bare any mistakes or missteps along the way, hoping that the reader can learn the most possible. In Take Charge you get to ride along with Clarence over a lifetime of training, learning how he has used the latest science to shape and modify his approach over the years. I am incredibly proud and flattered that I have been included in this celebration of Clarence’s contributions and launch of his new book. I began following Clarence in 1981, and have spent the ensuing 32 years chasing the condition of a man 24 years my senior.
