I’ve been training for a very long time. Not as long as those life long athletes, but a long time nonetheless. And when I started, I felt as though I had to make up for lost time. Like I was late to the party. I went from training mixed martial arts for 4 - 6 hrs a day to trying fro CrossFit competition 3 - 4 hrs a day. Then, after awhile, my body was “over it”. Coming from the CrossFit space, I didn’t really know how to workout anymore. Luckily, I became a massage therapist and started the relentless pursuit of education and over the last couple of years, learned how to train for long term benefits rather then crushing myself and my body into exhaustion everyday. I heard @rossedgley talking about the adaptation phase, as well as, Firas Zahabi, both on Joe Rogan’s podcast. And staying within that adaptation phase makes the most sense to me and my body. If you stay within that adaptation phase, the less your body breaks down, the more training days you have, you maintain your strength, you continue to be a more functional human, and the less of a liability you become in the long run. Which should be the ultimate goal. Training for life instead of 6 - 8 years. Makes sense to me. Also, congrats to Ross Edgley for completing the absolute craziness of The Great British Swim. Listen to him on the Joe Rogan Podcast to get a full understanding of the endeavor.

Deficit single leg deadlifts are one of my favorite movements to warm up the hamstrings for my pulling days. The goal is to build strength through the full range of the pull. Go forth and conquer!

“Look at your behavior. Look at your goals. Does your behavior match your goals?” - Dan John. Dang, what a great meditation for the day! Do you have goals? Are you focused on those goals? Most importantly, where is your focus? Is it optimistic or pessimistic? Are you focused on what you can change? Are you focused on the global problems that you have absolutely no influence on? Are you focused on your community where you can actually make change and make a difference? Are you focused on yourself? Are you focused on other people? What’s your plan? Is it actionable? What I’ve found over the recent years is, the more questions you ask, the closer you get to the one answer you need. You create your own reality. Go forth and conquer!

Find the people that motivate and inspire you and follow them religiously. I am so grateful for everyone I’ve met at the various courses I have attended over the last few years. It’s easy to learn continuously when you follow the right people.

Capsular CARs finisher from a couple of days ago. I had problems arching my back trying to get more range in external rotation. Having the foam roller as a block also added sensory input to keep me from compensating. Go forth and conquer!

Perfection is low standard because it’s impossible to attain. If you are waiting for the perfect moment there isn’t one. Stop hesitating and just go. Remember, the bigger the endeavor, the more people will try to talk you out of it. If it’s truly your passion, go forth and conquer your dream with every ounce of energy you have. And do not be afraid to take 10 steps back to take 20 steps forward. Doing your own thing has ups a downs, trudge through the bad days and remember that the good far outweigh the bad.

One of my favorite books “The Art of Loving” by Erich Fromm describes this concept in great detail. Seeking outside approval, love, acceptance, and any other type of gratification is a fruitless effort. You have to find what you seek within yourself before you find it in other people. If you do not truly love yourself, it will be very difficult for the people around you to love you. That being said, how does an individual get to that point where you love yourself? The answer is simple but the process is difficult. Practice. Change the question into a statement then practice that statement. How do I become happy? I am happy. How do I love myself? I love myself. Practice as often as you can all day everyday and eventually what you say to yourself will become truth. Side note, be very aware that the opposite is also true. How you talk to yourself matters. . . . . .

“And if there’s discomfort somewhere, it might be that the body has organized (or more commonly, disorganized) itself to manage a problem somewhere else. Its intention or strategy is to protect certain areas, so they’re not moving, then other areas have to move more to compensate. And in a closed-chain environment, if one thing closes down and another has to open, you get imbalances. What I think is really important for the body is efficiency, effortlessness, and energy conservation, and those things tend to come with balance.” -Gary Ward

Batmanned: To be set upon with terrifying force before you know what hit you. “I did these tall kneeling level 3 shoulder CARs with a kettle bell in the front rack post workout and they Batmanned me.” I couldn’t help but hear the words of @deweynielsen “That was exactly one rep.”

What are your goals? Are the obtainable? Are you limiting yourself? Are they realistic?How do you get there? I ask myself these questions to help me keep my focus. The answers tend to change as my business grows. The one that doesn’t change is how I get there and I ask myself that one more often then the others. The answer is always hard work and patience. And sometimes patience is the hard work. . . . . .

Narrative has been popping up in my life an awful lot lately. How often do you observe your internal or external narrative? Do things happen to you or for you? Are certain individuals acting that way towards you? Or do they just simply act that way? Is it a failure or an opportunity to learn? The words you use matter. Practice being more mindful of what you’re saying, not only to yourself, but out loud as well. Give it a shot for 24 hrs and see how you feel. Go forth and conquer!

🤯, that being said, if your story is constantly being rewritten, then why not be the hero of your own story? Start habits that will eventually lead you to where you want to be. Start overwhelming your negative self talk with positive self talk. How do you start believing in yourself? Take the “How do” out of that sentence and replace the question mark with a period. Just start. Go forth and conquer! . . . . .

Mobility is a temporary solution to the tissues that you are mobilizing. If you mobilize the target tissues the effects tend to last only a few hours until returning back to the previous state of tightness. In order to make that mobility permanent, you need to train that mobility by adding force to the targeted tissues. Buy adding force, you are sending afferent input into the brain that allows you to keep the mobility that you just earned because you are now stronger in that range. The equation for change in tissues is force/time, then that’s where the training part comes into play. How much time? That depends on how much mobility you want and how immobile you are. The adequate answer is, time. Just add it in to your training and one day you’ll be more mobile. Go forth and conquer my friends! . . . .

I can’t wait to start training again. This last weekend was action packed with inspiration, motivation and excitement. I’m looking forward to exploring every nook and cranny of this new to me movement practice. Also, I’m still sore. Very sore.

Gorgeous cool weather - PERFECT for running in! Today called for some speed workouts 4 x 400, but when you're in the mountains, it's also a hill training day.

I watched Russell Brands video on growth yesterday and it hit me right in the feels. He said that the way we grow is through crisis. I think crisis is a heavy word. I would use the word struggle because, in my opinion, every difficult thing that has happened in my life wasn’t necessarily a crisis, but I did become a better version of myself because of those struggles. If you look at the timeline of your life, it is littered with these little dots. Those dots are the life events that changed you as a human, hopefully for the better. We all tend to think that these were major events in the timeline but the reality is, they were just a blip on the radar. If an individual hose to carry the burden of that little dot is another matter. The reality is, how one perceives these challenges is, I think, very important. What’s your narrative? “Why is this happening to me?” Or “What do I need to learn from this.” Go forth into challenge, a different person will pop out of the other side. It’s up to the individual to divide if the take a leap forward or a leap back. . . . .

I’ve been sitting with this since I saw it this morning. The more I learn the more the one size fits all idea is flawed. There is no perfect diet for everyone, only perfect diets for individuals. Every body has different needs and different capacities. Is the overhead squat really “Functional”? It is a perfect test for strength, mobility, and flexibility. But, in my opinion, it is not a functional movement and it should be programmed for a lot of people, especially in high reps. That’s where the assessment comes in. Does this person have a fully functioning shoulder, yes or no? Do they have a fully functioning hip, yes or no? Do they have a fully functioning ankle, yes or no? How about the foot? Does an athlete need all of these to do an overhead squat? 100%. If they don’t have all of these joints working independently, then they absolutely shouldn’t be using them interdependently in this movement. Then we go down the the rabbit hole, if they can’t do one overhead squat properly, then shouldn’t be doing them under load, with high volume, and under fatigue. So, if they shouldn’t be overhead squatting then they shouldn’t be snatching. If they continue to do these functional movements while they aren’t functional then they are loading dysfunction and it will take them a lot longer to be “functional”. Like I said, just my opinion. Rant over. Enjoy your day!

I’ve been feeling pretty burned out this week. I have not only been burning the candle on both ends, I just threw the whole thing into the fire. What I’ve learned in my years of being a competitive athlete is, if you put the effort in, the results speak for themselves. And I tend to go pretty hard.
That being said, it’s ok to take a break every once in awhile. You can slow down and recover and still make progress. I have to remind myself everyday to slow down, I’m still early in the process, and to embrace the journey.
When you’re building a brand or a business the grind is really important, but rest is equally important.

I seem to remember someone not too long ago talking to me about everything being an emergency... 🤔😂 I guess he was right... This is why being centered... or grounded is so important... because it allows your brain to quit over thinking and over complicating everything and allows you to take a step back from all the chaos that isn’t really chaos... it’s simply life that we never learned to properly handle... @idrottskinesiologen with @get_repost

"However, many people spend their waking days in a sustained high-frequency Beta state. To them, everything is an emergency. The brain stays constantly on a very fast cycle, which taxes the entire system. Living in this thin margin of brain waves is like driving a car in first gear while simultaneously stepping on the gas. These people “drive through” their lives without ever stopping to consider shifting gears into other brain states. Their continual repetition of survival-based thoughts creates feelings of anger, fear, sadness, anxiety, depression, competition, aggression, insecurity, and frustration, among others. People become so caught up in these intoxicating emotions that they try to analyze their problems from within these familiar feelings, which only perpetuates more thoughts overfocused on survival. Also, recall that we can turn on the stress response by thought alone—the way we are thinking reinforces the very state of the brain and body, which then causes us to think the same way … and the loop goes on." from "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One" by Joe Dispenza

The brain has a natural propensity towards negativity. As a result, we are overwhelmed with negativity everyday. I say, take that as challenge to be overly optimistic. I feel like a lot of my clients could use a healthy dose of optimism when they come in to see me, and I’m guessing yours do too. Be the highlight of someone’s day. Go forth and conquer!

I was listening to the latest Tony Robbins podcast today and this was one of the quotes that got me right in the brain. Everybody has their own rules, either conscious or subconscious. The trouble comes with the expectations that are attached to these rules. For instance, some people have a rule to be early, some to be on time, and some on time means whenever they get there. All of those have expectations attached to them and when those expectations aren’t met, conflict arises. What’s the solution? Get rid of your expectations for everyone else and focus on your own rules. And if one of your rules is important to you, communicate it clearly so that person understands where you’re coming from. That’s how we agree on the rules. ——-
