If you know anything about us, you would know that we don't just bring anyone to the Warhouse Gym to give a seminar. They need to be real, respected, and actually give a fxck about people. They need to be legit AF. And this past weekend we had the honor of having Mike Rashid out to the Warhouse Gym in Reading, PA for a seminar about overtraining and the science and mind set behind it. I have been a fan of Mike and his philosophy on training, his views of overtraining and thoughts about power training the mind. I've been told by many people, and not just random Joe Schmoes, I mean high level trainers, coaches, judges, other athletes, the guru's, other people that seem to know what they are doing, that I'm doing too much. I’m training too much, or too long, or too heavy, too many sets or reps, with not enough rest days...basically I'm training too hard. Now what the fxck is that suppose to mean?? I need to ease up on training so I get better results? To me that never seemed to make sense. Why wouldn't I try to go as hard and as long as I can and really push my body to its limits. It's that stress and overload that brings results.
So having Mike here, in my gym, of course we had do do some training. It's really something special when you have two people that think alike, to train together. We hit chest pretty hard in the basement and then I finished with a couple of my "Xtreme sets" on our Prime machine.
If you don't know Mike follow him on Instagram and YouTube. And then you'll understand why this dude is so legit.
