I was running errands yesterday, enjoying the beautiful fall day, the sun shining off Lake Michigan, just off in my own little world. Since I was in the Bayview neck of the woods, I was thinking of stopping at Sven’s for some coffee beans…ya know, important stuff. I suddenly started paying attention to the annoying shite coming out of the radio and looked at the read out, “Miley Cyrus.” Yes, that crap pulled me out of my peaceful interlude and put an annoyance in my head before I even realized it. What shit.
So I switched stations and found this, Alicia Keys: Superwoman.Ahhhhhhhhh, cleanse. Music. Singing. Piano. Notes that come together to bring joy. Music. Faith in a dying music industry restored. Thank you Alicia Keys.
Enjoy the weekend.
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be.
tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned.
I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better.

This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
