Grade 5 bolts are in at the hardware store and I need to pick up a box of 60 penny nails and the Double Under bending will start.

What is considered a Grade 5 bolt and are penny nails equivalent to the yellow nails?? Still trying to rip a deck. only got 40 and it took me a half hour.

Why no certs in PA??

Your calendar is impressive! Congrat's on the business aspect of your career. Few trainers (coaches) ever get out of the "personal training only" game and you have managed to do so beautifully.

I still need to get you my CK-FMS video. Am I too late? Hope not!

Brett Jones said...

60 penny nails (or 60d common) are roughly equal to a Blue nail - although this varies - Grade 5 bolts are a step up from there etc...
Keep working on the cards - take a look at Adam Glass' site for tips

No certs in Pa - certs are run through Dragondoor - I cannot just run a cert. Eventually we will get something going on the East coast.

Thanks Franz,
Life is good - just gotta keep grinding!
Get the vid to me - it is not too late
