One Step At A Time: Summer Strong, Part 1


Written by

When I was told that I would be a guest speaker at Sorinex Summer Strong 7 I accepted the news just as I would any other speaking engagement, and two days in this event has been anything but. It has been the most incredible experience I have ever had as a strength coach/strength athlete. If you wanna talk heavy hitters this has been the conference. I have some great stories but I will choose to go into more detail on those after the conclusion tomorrow.

While at the Seminar today I was able to train with my buddy Chad Smith after deadlifting with “The King” Richard Sorin. He has now deadlifted 500 lbs in 49 consecutive years. This is truly unbelievable to me, but he’s an unreal human being, and expects the best from himself.

Bicep Curls

30 x 12 x 5 sets

Tricep DB French Press

45 x 12 x 5 sets

Lat Pulldowns

4 x 12

Band Pushdowns

4 x 20

We then graduated to the Tendo Unit with 185 as a standard test weight, I don’t know if there is any truth to it, but the gentleman from the company that provided the units said that my speed (1253) was the fastest they had ever seen performed with controlled form. Again not saying this is scientific fact but he said he had never heard of a higher number so that was pretty cool.

I think something I will elaborate on further is the like mindedness of the people I have met, and how they just seem to build a life void of any negativity. I look forward to expanding my thoughts on this, and many other topics.
