Let It Go!

Hope you are all moving forward.

I hope you are all enjoying life.

I hope you are all not letting stupid people and the stupid things they do get in your way of happiness.

I was bothered the other day by something a good friend of mine posted on facebook.

Here is what he posted.  "I was in a really good mood.... Then I went out... WTF is wrong with people today? Everyone is a douchebag out there.. It's hard to stay positive,,
F**k it, I hate you all."


Maybe I should stop using facebook so I don't see this, but then again where would I be inspired to write?

Look, I don't know the story.  I don't know what happened on this day. 

I do know that this person is better than this.  I know people are D bags but why should that ruin your day? 

Did those people harm your family?

Did they take your kids?

Did they kick your dog?

Look, we all have bad days but put it in perspective. 

If this was the worst day of your life then you are having a pretty damn good life. 

I can think of many days I have had worse. 

It can always be worse.

When these things happen ask yourself "Am I still breathing? Are my loved ones still breathing?  Will my family and I be able to have a meal today?  Will I be sleeping inside a house or inside a box tonight?  Will I get a good workout in this week?" (that one is for me)

Bottom line is keep your head up.  Don't let other people, that are meaningless to you in the long run, ruin your life!  Time is too short to worry about those things.

As Zac Brown says "Keep your heart above your head an you eyes wide open. So this world can't find a way to leave you cold.  You're not the only ship out on the ocean.  Save your strength for things that you can change.  Forget the ones you can't. YOU GOTTA LET IT GO!"

Happy Mother's Day!

I know Mother's Day isn't until Sunday but I wanted to make sure this blog got out there for as many people to read. 

I first want to wish all the Moms out there a Happy Mother's Day.  You all do so much for your families and it is very much appreciated.  I know it is very hard to do all the things you do.  There is a lot of stress that comes with being a parent and as I have seen it never ends no matter how old your children get.

I know my wife is an awesome Mom.  Our daughter is a great kid and will be an awesome Mom (a very very very long time from now) because of her.

Moms can't do all the work on their own.  Us Dads, me, need to recognize when they need more help.  Also Dads, ME, are not very swift on the pick up because we, ME, are trying to pull things together out of the house to make things better.  It wouldn't hurt if we are asked for help.

I vow to do better and recognize when more help is needed.  A Warrior is nothing without his Warrior Princess.

A SPECIAL HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

I would now like to take this time to say Happy Mother's Day to the best Mom ever.  My Mom passed away from Ovarian Cancer 8 years ago.  I miss her everyday.  It has hit me harder than ever this past couple of weeks.  I don't know why. When she first past I was upset but saw her suffer and new she was in a better place. I cried only a few times. The worst was at the funeral when they took the casket out of the church. I guess that was reality.

This past week has been extra tough.  I keep remembering back to the morning I came home from a gig in Boston and her and my Dad (best Dad ever) told me she was terminal. My Mom apologized to me for dieing.  She said "I'm sorry". 

This has stuck with me.  It wasn't her fault.  She didn't do anything to get ovarian cancer.  Shit fucking happens.  And she said sorry.

HEY MOM IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT!  You were an AWESOME MOM.  I wouldn't exchange you for anyone.  If I had a choice to have a Mom that was still alive and have you for the time I did I'd choose you.  You taught me so much.  Please know that.

We all miss you every day.  Thanks for being my Mom! 

Some of you knew her but many of you didn't.  The following is a video I put together to remember her.  You'll see some pictures of me and my family over the years.  The song I chose is by my band Bonehead.  It is called Real.  Our singer/ songwriter Jayy Mannon I'm sure didn't intend for this song to be used for this but I feel the chorus fits.  It  goes "Hurts me love to let you go.  All these feeling overflow.  Words can't say how I feel.  The love inside of me is real." 

Please watch.



Happy Mother's Day!

Today's Challenge Exercise for Myself

Today I decided to challenge myself.  I did an exercise I far too often neglect.  It is the Turkish Get Up.  I used a weight I haven't used for this exercise before.

This is great for your entire body.  You can do them as a warm up or where ever you feel you want them in your program.  I did these at the end.  I started with 24kg, then 26kg, then 28kg, then here is the 36kg. 

I need to work on the heavier set.  My left is weak. 

Good times!

NEVER STOP LEARNING

Just because you're not in school doesn't mean you should stop learning.  If you have a job where you just go in and push a button then come home and watch TV chances are you probably aren't very happy.  I know I wouldn't be.  Even if I was making a ton of coin doing so.  I'd want to better myself. 

The great thing is you don't even have to go to school to do so.

There is this amazing system that you are reading this on right now.  It is called the Internet.  There are so many good sites you can go to to learn from.  Even if it is just a hobby you should learn as much as you can.  You need to stay sharp!

Let's not forget about those other contraptions with printed words on the inside.  That's right.  Books!  You can even get the books on your mobile device if you don't want to go the old school paper way. 

Why am I, a trainer / strength coach, writing about learning? 

Because if we as a people don't continue to learn and grow we will perish.  If only a few people educate themselves then they will have the power.  This doesn't mean they will use this power for evil but I'm not going to take the chance.  I will continue to learn about fitness so I can be the best coach I can be.  I will continue to learn about my business so I can grow financially and continue to take care of my family. I will continue to learn about my spirit so I can be strong during hard times.  I will continue to learn about the world so my voice will be audible.

I urge you all to continue educating yourselves so you can continue your pursuit of being the strongest person you can be.

Stay Strong.

LOWER BODY FINISHER

Here is a great lower body finisher.

You can also do this for a quick workout.

It can be done this with just one Kettlebell or do what I did with a Barbell and a Kettlebell.

If you choose just the Kettlebell you can do rack or goblet squats.

Here is the protocol.

Start with 10 Squats then go to 1 KB Swing.

Ladder down on the Squats going to 9 and up on the Swings going to 2.

Complete until you do 1 Squat and 10 Swings.

Record your time on this and see how fast (with proper form) you can finish.

Have fun and let me know how you do.
