Here is my problem with the strength and conditioning industry: most everyone is a bandwagon wanna be. You can go to any seminar in the country read any article, hear someone speak, shake their hand, friend them on Facebook or social media and the next thing you know, you’re sucking someone’s d*** just to push [...]
We all get tunnel vision, whether we realize it or not but we do. The amount of focus we put on something can consume us until there is nothing left. This can be either a good thing or a bad thing, in the sense that I am talking about with this post, it is a [...]
I usually don’t take this long to post after a competition but I got sick on my way back and had a pretty interesting thing happen in my personal life that threw me for a spin but after leaning on my key support group, I am back and trying to get focused. Best way to [...]
Holy. S***. What a whirlwind last couple weeks. Let me re-cap everything that has gone down in the past 4-6 weeks:

Some days were better than others but for the most part every day was a grind. I continued working with Brian Carroll because if somethings not broke, why [...]

Welcome to 2013!
I know it’s been a while but I’m cool with that. After not taking a vacation in over 8 years, I took 13 whole days off over the holiday’s and man do I feel recharged! See one minor obstacle to running your own business is that if you don’t work, you don’t [...]
