SUNSHINE & PEACE OF MIND

(SUNSHINE & PEACE OF MIND) This is such a solid quote that resonates with me at this very second. There's so many moments along ones journey where we want to pull the plug and feel the act of defeat is winning. But truth be told, everyday is a form of defeat when we ultimately are living and breathing to formulate our own paths. Nothing about the journey is easy, and when we consider life as [...]

Rear Elevated Split Squats And Why You Need To Do Them

(IFA-Strength Tip) After an absolute SAVAGE leg session on Monday, the DOMS has set in and I feel like I am using someone else's legs 😂😂 I've always incorporated Rear Elevated Split Squats in most if not all of our programs, especially for the ‪#‎IronForceAthletics‬ Remote-Masters Athletes. It's one of the best movements to improve single leg strength, stability and also helps increase ROM & Mobility. ~~~Oh, and you'll get DIESEL Quad Gainzzzzz.. 💪🏻 Most [...]

Murph

Happy Memorial Day As much as it is a day off for most, and a time to be with family and friends, it's also a time to reflect and pay homage to the Men & Women who died while serving in the U.S. military, that have made it possible for me to even write this post. Today, we honor Michael Murphy. Cheers my friend! "Murph" For time: 1 mile Run 100 Pull-ups 200 Push-ups 300 [...]

Sunshine & Peace Of Mind

(SUNSHINE & PEACE OF MIND) After being in paradise for 2 weeks, I had a super rough adjustment getting back on an East Coast schedule, and completely dragging ass from the Maui time difference. Being in California and cruising to Maui directly after was easily one of the best ideas I have ever had. Not taking enough down time, and truly pressing pause has become the story of my life. I can even look back [...]

Maui, Coffee & Why I’m Never Leaving

Whenever I travel, I always seek out a couple of things when I first arrive to a destination. 1. Coffee 2. Training Facilities 3. Beaches Everything else will fall into place as long as I know where the best of these three options are located. I typically stress a lot of people out with my lack of preparation and usually just go with the flow and will figure it out when I get to where [...]

New Changes In The Air

Got a chance to do some exploring this morning / afternoon in a sweet spot called Paia, Hawaii. I've heard nothing but amazing things about Maui and have been absolutely floored from the smallest things I've been exposed to in just a few hours. When people ask me what I truly want out of life, it always comes back to lifestyle and how I perceive and interpret my day to day. What's important to me [...]

California Love

I finally had some downtime to think about the last several days and what a whirlwind it has been. It's insane to think that my trip here in California is coming to an end tomorrow and heading off to Maui tomorrow afternoon. Being able to travel across the country and reconnect with friends & family has always been such a trip and truly made this trip that much better. The fact that you can pick [...]

Overhead Press Plateau

I don’t think there is anything worse than finding a lift that you straight up can not improve on. It’s like winning the lottery but getting an IOU, who the hell wants that? Today, I’m going to tackle the Overhead Press as many of our Masters Athletes seem to have a hard time increasing weight on this lift. I’d say of every lift in the catalog, the OHP is the hardest to develop Over the [...]

Why Every Motivational Meme You Read Is Not Motivating

****Warning, this blog will more than likely offend you**** I am sure you all have seen them pasted on your Instagram and Facebook feeds, pictures of beautiful serene mountain tops with some epic phrase or quote to "inspire" you to get moving and get happy and get living. Now, on the surface these all seem like harmless gestures that make someones day, but I sat down and analyzed this, maybe a bit more than one [...]
