43: Accepting Failure In The Gym

Accepting failure can be a tricky concept to adjust to as a lifter. In todays podcast I touch a little on what failure means to me in the gym. Failure is your wall, your new hill to overcome, your limitation. When you look at failure on a lift like this you can analyze and find a way to train around it, build up weak areas, and ultimately overcome that failure. I believe everyone should fail a lift. It is a humbling experience that can make sure the biggest progress you might not even think about and that is self defeat. Before we even approach the bar our head is flooded with thoughts of failure. During the lift these thought find their companion “excuses” ultimately leading you to sometimes bail out when you could have pushed through.

40: 4 Reasons You Need A Personal Trainer

You might be interested in getting into shape or back into the gym after a long break. As a first timer the gym can feel like a daunting experience with all of the equipment and people who look like they know what they are doing. All of these things can make it hard to get back into the swing of things or even to get started as a newbie. In todays podcast I go over a few reasons why you might be a prime candidate for a personal trainer even if you feel you don’t fit the bill. As always thank you guys for your continued support of the podcast. There will be more content being uploaded in the next coming weeks. I am currently looking to release three podcasts a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays so be sure to subscribe.

39: Networking with other Fitness Motivators

Networking with others. It can be in life, work, and even the gym. Networking with others can be a powerful technique in growing as an individual. I try to work with a wide variety of people in the gym. along my fitness journey these people have motivated me and helped me to grow while on this journey. Thank you guys again for all the continued support and enjoy.

38: Relying On Others To Go To The Gym

Relying on others to motivate you into going to the gym and why this isn’t the best for you. When on your fitness journey you need to learn to go at it alone. Getting a membership with someone may be nice or even financially beneficial but if the reason you go depends on if someone else does then you are off to a bad start and failure to commit will soon follow. This isn’t to say having a workout partner is a bad thing or to bash those who encourage you. This is to affirm the notion that this is a lifestyle and that going alone should be just apart of your life as anything else you do solo. Thank you guys again for your continued support and enjoy.

35: Is Revital U My thoughts on this MLM/supplement coffee

Today on the podcast I spend some time talking about the company/ product Revital U. For those of you unfamiliar this is a coffee product that claims to give you more energy as well as aid in weight loss. One of the reasons I am taking time to speak about this so because it is another MLM or multi level marketing company with “brand influencers” taking to social media. I am not selling this product nor do I recommend people get involved with a MLM. If you are a seller or you do like MLM structures companies this by all means “do you”

28: Training and Broken Sleep

Living the dad life and once again on that broken sleep schedule. In todays episode I take the podcast outdoors with my oldest son as I talk a little about my training and lack of sleep with a newborn in the house. As always thank you guys for listening and providing positive feedback. Maintaining the energy for the gym without cheating my family out of the energy they deserve from me can be hard. With our newborn my wife and I are once again going through those sleepless nights. A few of my workouts have suffered due to this but for the most part as each day passes I find that my body is adapting. I could not imagine nor would i recommend maintaining this type of schedule long term but for the most part it isn’t as tough as I had thought it would be during those first few weeks.
