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.

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.

If you are going to train with a partner............

Why not make it your most important partner?  Today I not only trained my wife but I trained with her. We had a great time.  I used a challenge workout that I have used with my other clients the past few weeks.  It was the same one I did with Rebekah over at BexLife.com. 

Here is what we did.

50 Jumping Jacks
40 Air Squats
30 Mt Climbers (both legs = 1 rep)
20 Bicycle Crunches (both legs = 1 rep)
10 Burpees or Squat Thrust (She did Squat Thrusts)

I recommend beginners do at least 1 to 2 rounds.
Intermediate 3-5 rounds.
Advanced go for 5.

Do this As Fast As Possible and record your time.

I was very proud of her.  She completed 3 rounds in 18 min.  The we found out the camera didn't record and we decided to do an extra round for your viewing pleasure.  So as you watch this keep in mind she already did three and I completed five rounds in 18:17.

Give it a try and let me know how you did.

Thanks you Karen and Roo for training with Daddy!

The real reason the girl doesn't dig you!

  I recently saw a facebook post that inspired this video.  I am tired of seeing people complain that this person or that person doesn't like them because they don't have "abs or a cute face"  or whatever else.

In this video I tell you the real reason the girl isn't diggin you. 

This message can be applied to everything in your life. You don't need the abs (Although as a fitness professional you I recommend for you to be healthy) or that thing you built up in your mind to hold you back.

Just watch.
