The Beast from the East

Pictured below is a guy I sometimes train with.

I am highly selective in who I train with as your training partner will have a major effect on your workouts. He hails from PA. He is a beast. The man pushes himself like no other.

As you can see in the pictures, we love not only to lift iron, but we incorporate blast straps (Elite FTS) and calisthenics.

The picture of him doing push ups was shot after he did reps with an 80 lb, 40 lb, and 25 lb sandbag on his back. It was a great finisher to a great workout.

If you have a training partner and he/she isn't pushing you, or if you aren't inspired by your partner to push youself to levels, get rid of your partner and find a new one. Maybe you'll get lucky and find another "beast" to work out with.
