Summer has (finally) arrived in Maine. Mountain bikes. Hikes. House projects (yuck). Hoops. My pale ass even makes it to the beach from time to time.

With picnic days hitting, I've been hearing from trainees the world over about impending visits to Maine. Which is DOPE! Some are interested in hitting the beaches, others the bars, and others the barbells. As a jack of all trades, I'm keen to honor various request.

As far as those barbells go, Thomas (https://kenzai.me/thomas/blog/kenzai-live) and I have settled into a nice little maintenance routine. We hit the weights together on M, W, F. The goal is to keep things snappy. So we super set everything. And limit the fun to 4 sets of each pair. Here is a sample routine:

Cardio
*10 minutes of rope alternating speed rope and heavy rope

Full Body
*Deadlift/Heavy Rope

Legs/Shoulders
*Squats/Barbell Shoulder Press
*Walking Lunge/Forward Shoulder Raise
* Switchfoot Jump/Turkey Wing

Abs
Kettlebell Crunch/ Kettlebell Russian Twist

I'm also meant to be prepping for a DIY marathon. Turns out, making time for biking, hiking, lifting, hooping....is easy. Running. Not so much. This is gonna be even harder than I thought. Shiiiiiiit.

    I don't think I'll get up to Maine this summer, but if you guys feel like taking a little jaunt down to Connecticut, I've got guest rooms!

      Look at you, mr. considerate, willing to show trainees the local breweries. The sacrifices you have to bear.

            Binga's Stadium!!! Better watch out or you will be busy Brew-pubbing. That workout looks strong but I'm not too keen on the DIY Marathon...but if you want to...

                @Augusta - No way! Please hit me up. At least for a high five! I burn mostly, but would venture out to see Johanna.

                    Hahaha. John, his sister and I will be in Maine in late June/early July at Medawisla. Not sure it will work to meet up as we’ll be driving through Portland to Boston on the 4th of July.
