Nearly a handful of years ago, a friend turned me onto a page called @oafnation_actual . While the Taco Tuesday and weekend safety briefs were amusing, it was the content that drew me back time and time again. More specifically, the writings of a former Marine who published under the pseudonym Grifter. I read his first piece, When the Music Stops, almost four years ago. It’s as relevant today as it was then...which is both a compliment to him and a general condemnation of the psychological community that serves vets. Luckily, through a series of fortunate events, our cyberspace paths eventually crossed. I am beyond thrilled he’s given me permission to republish one of his other pieces tomorrow on the Debrief, followed by my own piece explaining the psychology of his experience. It’s raw, gritty, real....and painful to read. Thanks again @yesthatgrifter It took courage to give voice to your demons and even more to share your battle in the hopes of showing those that fight these fights are not alone. #westandalonetogether#gwot#marine#recon#veteran#army#thedebrief#demons#beyondptsd#transition#stress#staytuned#narrativeshift#culturechange
The workout video was made on February 17, 2018 at LA Fitness in Plano, Texas.
Many thanks to @khesselbacher for her videographer skills. You're the best, Kelly! ----- The Dropbox URL to the video:
The video is comprised of short demos of the exercises I currently do in my 3 day split, broken down by day.
Almost every exercise demoed is done in real life anywhere from 4-6 reps at medium weight and sloooow speed, to 8-12 reps at heavier weight and medium speed.
Always control the weight - don't throw it and don't catch it. ----- Yes, I do a lot of exercises.
And yes, I do this whole routine twice a week.
Is Hoover @jasonandaxel ’s #doppelganger ? Honoring Presidential K9s today, many whom were renown working dogs just like King Tut, President Herbert Hoover’s Belgian Shepherd was said to patrol the perimeter of the White House protecting #POTUS . We love you Axel💜
My little Cousin Lucas can totally Hang!!! He’s the only kid out of the 7 kids in this house who will join me each morning for the workout! Today he and I did @tonyshorton#22minutehardcorps CARDIO2 & COLD START. Lucas is 8 and he’s our future! I believe in starting the kids young and leading the way. Now we will enjoy another action packed day at one (or two) of the Disney Parks here in Orlando. @irishheart04@carldaikeler#getsome#disney2018
Okay, not a car thing, but was just looking at my calf and being that I’ve been been going to the gym pretty consistently for the last year, I’m seeing good things from my legs!!! Just happy with the progress, that is all. Lol. #veteran#csar#aw#fitness#usnavyrescueswimmer
