You can’t do that he said – well sKrew that…  

…I said – and I didn’t listen.

Injuring your lower backs sucks… especially when you’re finally making progress where you’ve been previously stuck in a rut.

Especially when you injure yourself doing something you’ve done a million times… And you’re on vacation.

Basically my body gave me a heads up – “You’re a little tight today,” he said. “You can’t do that until you warm up more…”

I said, “sKrew that…”

And here I am… but I know to focus on what you CAN do and not what you can’t.

I know that movement is medicine and sometimes medicine tastes bad… and sometimes the worst tasting stuff is the stuff that heals.

What’s this got to do with you?

I did a couple exercises I learned from some gymnasts and resettled my spine, the muscles have calmed down and in todays workout I will concentrate on moving through space easily instead of hammering some of the harder skills I want to master.

You need to know how to adapt and continually move forward.

Don’t get discouraged when something apparently bad happens…

Do what you CAN – and forget what you CAN’T.

The CAN’T will come 🙂

Sometimes you just need someone to show you how to side step in the little dance of forward progression.

There are a lot of membership sites out there that offer a ton of info – that’s not what you need.

What you need is to be able to get answers to solving the problems YOU face, and get them without having to do all the leg work that wastes time and causes frustration…

Which causes you to throw your hands up in the air and quit.

That’s where I come in.

I offer you a bunch of free resources – These are the systems used to fix the most frequently asked questions I get. Things like losing weight, building muscle, increasing flexibility…

Nothing shocking there –

But inside each of these areas – there’s a million questions.

These are the small things that keep you from getting what you want.


When I solve a problem – I systemize it into an easy to follow plan for you. You use the plan and get the result.


So inside the membership area right now you get the:

“How To Lose Belly Fat” program with it’s routines and exercise demo videos – all of which you can do at home.

“The Commando Cardio Program” a full on gymless routine to increase strength, flexibility and power while burning off pounds of fat and building muscle.

“The 22 Weight Loss Hacks” program that gives you a full program and eating method to lose weight without turning into a fitness crazed lunatic. This is the most simplest, easy to implement program I have ever created for losing weight fast and it can all be done at home – also works for vegetarians.

Also – The Weekly Burtons Basement Barbarians instructional emails that are “Top Secret” – no one else gets to see these but you chosen ones. Only Burtons Barbarians get to see them.

AND – Personal email access to me. You ask anything and I’ll give you answers to set you up for success.

Special “members only” discounts on new Burton products and releases. You’ll know about anything new before anyone else and you’ll get it at a discount.

It really is the bee’s knees – and you can get all the honey here:

Get Gritty, Move Greasy

P.S. If you take anything from this email it’s this – focus on what you CAN do, not what you CANT. If you don’t have the money to join the membership site now, keep doing SOMETHING – you’ll be miles ahead of those on the couch.
