13 yrs ago I was a Redshirt Freshman TE ๐Ÿˆ @templeuniv when I played the Maryland Terrapins at their house. I fell in love with the environment and their brand. After a competitive game I shook hands with @vernondavis and @shawnemerriman two physical freaks of nature that I would try to mold my game after. 2 years would pass by and I would earn the name โ€œBeastโ€ and โ€œFreakโ€ by my team because I was 6โ€™3 280 pounds with single digit body fat. I was an NFL prospect on a team that that year would send the entire starting defense to the NFL, plus backups. We fought through ALOT of adversity at TU. The BOT nearly dropped football from the school. We went through a restructure, changed coaches, the culture and the brand, to @underarmour. In the spring of my senior year I had microfracture surgery on my right knee. If you know anything about knee surgeries, Microfracture Knee Surgery is the last thing you want to have. By Summer 4 months later I was in camp trying to reclaim my starting job by being a Scout Team warrior. I stepped on the field for the first time 7 or so games later, 10yrs ago around this time for 2 plays and that was a wrap for my career at TU. I ended up leaving the team after that game. I dreamed of going to the NFL and becoming an @underarmour athlete. Was one of my biggest goals. At that moment I thought Id never realize it. I hit rock bottom, left school, and moved out west. More adversity, kept trucking. I went to CES, a conference that I knew nothing about simply hoping that Id have 2 seconds to shake hands and meet the Keynote Speaker, Founder CEO and Chairman of @underarmour Kevin Plank. The same brand I fell in love with as a 19 yr old Redshirt Freshmen while playing University of Maryland. I was in a room of thousands of people and right before he left after an amazing speech I tried to shout his name but no words came out. 3 yrs later, he came in a room to meet me, yesterday and shake my hand, and welcome me to the team. Thank you to every single person from Team UA for making this the best trip of my life from start to finish, and thank you @kevinplank_ua ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ

Hyped I just got my @trainingmask 3.0 in the mail. A lot of athletes use this piece of equipment for different reasons. Why do I use it? I use it because I like to practice discomfort here and there. Champions introduce different variables into their training so they are ready for any situation they find themselves in. In this situation I want to practice not freaking out when I feel like itโ€™s hard to breathe and concentrate at the task at hand- to become comfortable with that feeling. Become comfortable being uncomfortable! And the training mask definitely takes me there. I am super impressed by how champions like Vasily Lomachenko practice discomfort. Itโ€™s an art. They say he does a swim workout where he swims a certain length and then holds his breath under water for over 3 minutes! (Please donโ€™t try that at home) For my elite athletes gradually introduce some discomfort into your training regimen! Sincerely, the 6โ€™3 250 lb gymnast ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸฅŠ ๐Ÿฅ‹ ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฟโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿฟโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I always look forward to teaching on Saturdays because I get to box with one of the STRONGEST families out there, the Russoโ€™s. Iโ€™ve been boxing with them now for almost 3 years and every time, is time I cherish. Iโ€™ve seen @chiprusso and @mrs_russo kids grow up in front of my eyes (they are 12 now!) and they have become my family. Iโ€™ve seen these kids have the option to take off from boxing because they have hours of lacrosse tournaments to attend later that day, and they STILL come in and box prior and give it all they have, often times I have to hold them back, to their disliking. Itโ€™s been awesome seeing them develop over the years as athletes, specifically Lacrosse players, to really grasping the sweet science of boxing, every step of the way. Calculated. Measured. Trying to build the best athletes I can, while having fun along the way. But my true joy is in this. Watching @mrs_russo look on proudly as her daughter Katie absolutely excels in this discipline, boxing. In 2001, roughly 6 years before the twins were born, Christina was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma and was given a %20 chance to live. And here she is today, when I call a 1-2 she swings for the fences and I do NOT want her to miss and hit me in my face because she has punching POWER. She is the definition of STRONG. Fast forward to today where she is one of my best friends and I have the joy to watch her watch her daughter grow and embrace being strong, and witness what an amazing example she has to look up to. Thank you Christina, Chip, and the twins Katie and Kenny for making @gloveworx a better place๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ

Here @thecharlesglass and I take a hack squat machine and shift its usage to a squat supersetted with a stiff legged dead lift. You want to grow? Change the way you look at pieces of equipment that you incorporate into your regimen! Who is going to give it a try on their leg day! Drop a ๐Ÿ— ๐Ÿฅฉ ๐Ÿ  below in the comments if you are going to, itโ€™s TAXING๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ

In continuation from my post earlier about manipulating growth through varying angles of the same exercise I wanted to give a few pointers. Donโ€™t just look at the piece of equipment for what itโ€™s designed for. You saw @thecharlesglass change the angle of my bent over rows by having me perform the exercise using the leg press, yes a bent over row for my back using the leg press!! Expand your horizon and see tremendous results. You have to think outside of the box. I would say the biggest thing that I depend on when training back is not really focusing to much on how much weight Iโ€™m moving but rather how much I FEEL it. Control, function, and FATIGUE over ego when training for that definition. Any questions- hit me in my comments! How did your back day go? @Leyon in your videos so I can see you go!! And what do you want to see next??......๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ .
