  • The Power of Stacking Wins

    I hated school. Elementary school through college, I never wanted to be there. If I’m being honest, the only reason I went to college was to play sports. There are probably a few reasons why I hated school, but I know for sure one of them was that I was never taught the value and skillset of being organized and having a consistent routine. Here’s an honest snapshot of a typical day in high school/college: The night before - staying up too late, not preparing food or anything to make my morning easier. Morning- Sleeping in until the last possible second, throwing clothes on, and rushing to class barely making it on time. In class: Not ....

  • One More Day

    If there’s a gap from where you are now and where you want to be, this can be an overwhelming feeling. The larger the gap, the worse the feeling. Anxiety strikes when we are looking too far ahead in the future, which is usually what happens here. We’re focusing all our attention on how far we need to go, which ends up crippling us. So, we either quit, or don’t even bother getting started. Here's how not to let that happen. Step 1. What are your goals? Who is it that you’re trying to become? Step 2. Why? Why are these things important to you, and how will they make your life different? Step 3. Focus on today. Live today like the person you are trying ....

  • The one thing you need to get better results

    Tom Brady just became the first quarterback ever to eclipse the 100,000 yard passing mark. This is an incredible feat for many reasons, especially when you think back to him being one of the last picks in the NFL Draft. Brady didn’t start off as the greatest quarterback of all time. In fact, if you look at his scouting report for the NFL Draft, many referred to him as “slow, average and un-athletic.” So how did he get from where he was then to where he is now? He worked relentlessly hard on the fundamentals every single day. The fundamentals can also be described as the boring stuff. What does it take to be relentlessly consistent with the boring stuff? Discipline. ....

  • Do THIS before you set your next goal (Game Changer)

    Michael Phelps became the most medaled Olympian in history. He finished with 28 medals, 8 of which he won in one year, which is also an Olympic record. Does anyone know what happened to Phelps immediately following his career? As soon as his career ended, Phelps struggled with alcoholism and depression. You might be thinking to yourself, “wow, how selfish or out of touch with the world he must have been for HIM to get depressed. He had just won the most medals in Olympic history and became an extremely wealthy icon. What could be so bad about that situation?” Phelps had dedicated his entire life to achieving this goal, and he achieved it. The problem was, he didn’t ....

  • Negative Feedback Loop From Hell

    Happy Mindset Monday! The other day I woke up and started going through my morning routine when out of nowhere, these negative thoughts started creeping in, and got me into this frustrated, negative headspace. The most frustrating thing was that I had no idea what set this off. Regardless, there I was just an hour into my day, frustrated, annoyed and not wanting to do anything. I knew my productivity was going to be thrown off, which then pushed me further into a negative mindset. Ah, enter the negative feedback loop from hell. We’ve all been there. When this happens, you must do something to change your physiological state. What I mean by that is, you have to do something to ....

  • Why Do You Do It?

    Why are you doing this? Seems like a simple question, and the most common answers I get to this are things like “I want to lose 20 pounds” or “I want to tone up.” There’s nothing wrong with having aesthetic goals (I have them myself). However, if you don’t take the time to think about the REAL reason why you’re making the time to work out, you’ll end up quitting (or wanting to) the moment a challenge pops up in your life. I shared my story a few weeks ago, and a big motivator for me when it comes to my health and fitness is that I not only want to be here for my family as long as I can as they grow older and have kids, but I want to ....

  • What exercises should I do during a workout?

    What to do during a workout? This is a great question, and the annoying but truthful answer is: It depends. It depends on your experience, fitness level, mobility, strength, schedule, access to equipment, movement limitations/pain, and more. Here’s a quick guide on what to include in your strength workout. I must preface this by saying I highly recommend you work with a professional personal trainer for safety and best results. Everybody moves differently and has different needs. Do your best to insert movements that best suit you and your ability and mobility level. Warm up: Hip mobility 2-4 movements. Shoulder mobility 2-4 movements Ankle/calf mobility 1-2 movements ....

  • Repetition NOT Perfection

    Repetition NOT Perfection

    A college art professor decided to run an experiment with his class to see which method would help his students produce the best pictures. With one half of the class, he had them take as many pictures as possible and pick the best picture from the lot of them. With the second group, he had them take just one picture and edit that picture the best they could. Which group do you think got the best results? It turns out the group that took hundreds of pictures ended up coming up with the best pieces of art, because after hundreds of failed attempts, they were getting better and better with each attempt. They were learning what worked and what didn’t. In comparison, the group ....
