Speaking of the Gauntlet…check out event #3
Yesterday the PSKC staff beta tested event 3 out on the Lane of Pain…and there wasn’t a single thing that needed to be changed! What I love about this event is that it’s incredibly simple from a technique standpoint, everyone can do it without any scaling….but by no means does that meaen it’s easy. It will be a true test of will power…
For event 3 fellas will get a 95lb barbell and a set of 53lb bells. Ladies will get a 65lb bar and a set of 35s. But that’s all we’re gonna tell you.
So you’re on the fence…you’re wondering if you should do it. A little self doubt is creeping in making you question whether you should throw your hat in the ring. One of the greatest Presidents of all time said it best…
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
I’ve done plenty of competitions. Some I’ve done well…more than usual I didn’t place near the top. But I never regretted a single one, and neither will you. It’s not about where you place or don’t place. It’s about celebrating the fact you can get out there and do it. The only time I regretted a competition was the one I didn’t do.
I promise you it will be incredibly fun…very welcoming and encouraging. Plus the t-shirt will be kick ass…not to mention the post-Gauntlet party! So click HERE to get registered!
It is Wednesday and I’ve been slacking on the recipe of the week. So here’s a great side dish to add to your favorite tasty piece of meat.
Caramelized Cauliflower and Onion
1 head of cauliflower 2 medium onions1/2 cup cooking sherry2 tablespoons organic butterPepper to taste 2 packs of chicken broth concentrate
Melt butter in a large skillet. Chop cauliflower and onion and sauté in butter, sherry, chicken broth concentrate and pepper. Cook for an hour to hour and a half on medium heat, stirring every 10 minutes or so. This is the best side dish! Its great with steak, pork chops, and chicken. It’s tastes too good to be healthy! I suggest doubling the recipe and storing your leftovers in the fridge for another dinner.
