Back in August 2008 I posted an article called Talk the Talk, Walk the Walk. In that article I expressed how I refuse to take advice regarding health and fitness from a doctor or nutritionist who are themselves unhealthy or overweight. Sick people cannot help other sick people get well.

So, just as I would not take advice from an unhealthy and overweight person, I don’t expect you to either. To that end back in August 2008 I had some photos taken of myself while I was enjoying my regular workout and I posted those photos here on Balanced Existence. That way I figured you could see the product of my knowledge and experience despite (or perhaps because of?) the hands life has dealt me.

It’s now just over a year since I posted that article up so I figured it was high time for an update. If you’re a regular reader here you would have read about my experiences with the deadlift and with kettlebells before that. Below you’ll find some pictures from my workout on Friday.
