12 Jul Lessons From One of the Best Seminars I’ve Ever Attended

It was the summer of 2013.  I attended an exceptional weightlifting seminar back in July, 2013 that was taught by renowned Weightlifting Coach Glenn Pendlay. First, thank you Glenn for a great seminar. Thank you for providing one of the most valuable learning experiences I've attended in the last decade. While I've attended many great seminars and workshops in the last 10 years, this was certainly one that stands out. I can still remember sitting in the back of the hot gym down here in South Florida and taking notes while he was presenting the lecture portion of the seminar.

24 May How To Build Momentum (In Strength And Life)

Author Steven Pressfield writes about the destroyer of all things.

He calls it a nearly unstoppable force that prevents you from achieving what you want.

It is the enemy.

He calls this internal force “resistance” and says it will kill you, if you let it.

You want to start eating better, but you don’t.

You want to train more consistently, but you aren't.

You want to start that training program, but you haven’t.

Believe me, I’ve been guilty of this myself.

I want to write and publish more helpful articles, but I haven’t.

Why?

One reason is that damn internal force Steven Pressfield writes about, resistance.

16 Nov The Barbell Doesn’t Care About You

The barbell doesn't care about you. Never did, never will. It's just a piece of iron. The big, bad brother to the kettlebell and dumbbell. You can load the bar to your absolute limit, which is one of the things that makes it like nothing else. You can do things with it that you can't do with other strength, performance or muscle building tools. Arguably, it's the single greatest tool to improve your overall strength and health.

24 Mar The 3 Training Rules That Matter Most

Over the years, I’ve thought a lot about my rules for training that I try to live by. The goal is to have something tangible and useable I can apply during each training session.

My rules have evolved from many down to 3 simple and unbreakable rules that apply for both short-term and long-term training success.

These rules are very basic concepts that allow me to train at a high level over a long period of time, which we could define as high performance.

03 Jan Can You Be Great?

This is a bold and different kind of post, unlike anything I've ever written. But the message is important and it's the perfect time of year to write this. It's not meant to motivate or inspire, but to aspire (you'll see what I mean). This isn't motivational fluff, it's a shift in mindset.

Don't worry, I've got plenty of NEW "how to" articles, lifting tips, and training advice coming here soon (and a bunch of other cool new stuff too).

This is a new year and each of us has a clean slate right now. We're all excited about our training as the year begins, right?

But, what happens in a month from now? 2 months from now?
