So I am sure you will all notice the new look around here! I have my good friend Nico to thank for the work he did in revamping my site, and I must say he did a tremendous job! There are a few more bugs to workout, like for some odd reason we lost the search function, but that should be up and running by the end of the day today.
I was able to barter a training program and some nutrition consulting with Nico in exchange for the website work, which I was also pretty pumped about!
Please let me know what you guys think of the new layout and design, any and all comments are welcome!
I am also very excited/nervous, I guess anxious would be appropriate, for Show and Go to launch tomorrow! It is the first book I have written, and although I have the utmost confidence in it I can’t help being just a little nervous! I don’t think I have ever used that many exclamation points in my life. I feel like Mike Robertson. Just kidding Mike.
I am in Boston for a few days with my wife as she is in town for a conference on dental implants. I know exciting stuff right? I am locking myself in my hotel room today (which her company is paying for, booya) and adding the final touches on the site as well as finishing up my 3rd article for t-nation.
We of course packed lots of healthy portable snacks to bring with us. Some mixed nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit, natural peanut butter, whole-grain bread (unfortunately sprouted-grains wouldn’t last long without refrigeration), and protein powder.
Of course while in town I am going to make an appearance at CP tomorrow. Get in a lift with the staff, see some friendly faces, meet the new interns, do lots of observing and maybe even do a little coaching, mainly because I just can’t help myself.
It will be so nice to be back in a gym with some actual attitude. It is amazing the difference it makes when you are surrounded by loud music, like-minded individuals and people actually training with a purpose. In fact an online client of mine sent me an article from the NY Times showing that the tempo of the music you listen to can highly influence how hard you train.
The study found that when people listened to the same song at either 10% faster or 10% slower tempo, their work output matched the tempo. Meaning when they listen to the slower version of the song (without knowing it) they actually worked less hard. When they listened to the faster version they worked harder. The crazy part is they knew they were working harder (though they didn’t know the song was faster than normal) but they persevered none-the-less.
Needless to say, Tony Gentilcore will NOT be in control of the music when I am at the facility tomorrow, that’s for sure!
That’s it for today guys, and please let me know what you think of the new layout!
