Welcome everyone and thank you for your following my blogs. Your readership is key to my writings. Most of you are well aware of my weekly wall of fame. This past week...Jeison Aristizabal, CNN winner also. Many of you are aware of my devotion to men and women who are physically and mentally challenged. Why is it that people with less, accomplish more than "normal people?" I want to find the answer to that this year 2017. Hundreds of "challenged" people have attended my fitness/sports clinics. This includes people legally blind, in wheel chairs, walkers and needing an assist. I experience a miracle in every clinic and every class. They motivate me and teach me about life. And to all of them...thank you! With love and hugs, Jimmy O

Hello and welcome everyone...my blog re wearing body weights has generated tons of responses...thank you. Once every three months I design a workout program with drills that I don't really like to do...but I have too. I call that day, my MT. EVEREST CLIMB. Here we go...3 hours of blood sweat and tears. 20 minute warm up. Rugged terrain, run and sprint for 20 minutes. Pull a 40 lb. tractor tire for 20M (sprint) Three sets with 60 sec. rest period after each set. Push 2x4 10m. 5 sets with 60 sec. rest between each set. Standing in place, jump straight up and bring knees waist high, 30 times in 15 sec. and always land on the balls of your feet. 3 sets with 60 sec. rest between sets. Move feet in four directions, change directions quickly, on balls of your feet, 39 sec. 5 sets with 30 sec. rest between sets. Now you have developed fast muscle fiber and endurance. 20 min. cool down. Let's meet at the finish line.

Hello and welcome everyone...thank you for the positive response to last week's blog. We will start this week with quotes. Bob Richards...sports writers questioning Bob Richards, renowned pole vaulter,..at LA Cal. Olympics 1984..."how many records will be broken this year?" Bob, "all of them." Then he said, pointing to the kids swimming, seeing the pre teens training, "these kids are out to break records that haven't even been set yet." Profound! Mary Decker Tab, world champion 1500m champion. "I not only think about winning...I see myself winning." First to the Finish Line...Champion where survivors and winners always meet."
