Injuries and accidents happen. How you respond is critical to the outcome. It’s a busy time of year at the @dldeaton ranch, and while working out a gelding, Coach D was bucked from the horse, which fell backward onto his outstretched knee. Needless to see, he walked away with a gnarly bruise. So, what can we learn from Coach D’a accident? Learn to respond — don’t react! — to an injury. A calm, logical assessment of the situation will allow you to make the right choices when seeking medical attention, keep you in a positive mindset, and, most importantly, help you get back to movement and training as soon as possible.
Recovery is a key component of physical adaptation, and recovery = food + sleep (more or less). But what about *rest*? Psychological stress is a stressor just like lifting weights or running a 5k, and we must manage our stress levels for physical AND mental health. Coach @dldeaton offers some practical tips for incorporating rest — not just sleep — into you life. What are your favorite ways to rest? Leave a comment below!

He is 60 y/o and has type 2 diabetes. He just recently went back to his doctor and his A1c has lowered to now have him down in the pre-diabetic levels for the first time in years! His doctor said that next visit they will probably start slowly titrating down his medications. Not only that, he just squatted
