Greg Johnson – Monthly Update 201806


Personal Update 201806 | 29 Jun 2018 | Friday


I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update. This month’s newsletter will be shorter than usual.


I mentioned last month that I had finished a deep dive examining DSLR cameras. I’ve shared a few photos through social media, but plan to share more here on my website in July. The header photo is of a sunrise here in Iowa City.  I’m looking forward to using more photography with websites and print media.


This month I lifted over 257,000 pounds. That’s a higher total than previous months because I’ve increased some weight and reps. For those perplexed by such a high number (a quarter of a million pounds) I’ll explain that the way this is calculated is to take the weight being lifted multiplied by the number of times it is lifted. So, a tricep exercise with 30 pounds, when lifted 96 times becomes 2,880. Finding the right balance between weight and reps is key. If I keep going at this rate, I’ll lift over 3 million pounds in a year. I plan to write more about this topic and produce some videos soon.


Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
