From Prey to Predator

From Prey to Predator

Humans are inherently weak, feeble and really shouldn’t be able to survive much longer than a few hours out in the elements. We have nothing to keep us warm unless we put in work somewhere else and make clothing to trap our body heat.

We can’t go out and kill many things without having to make some type of weapon first. Ditto for self-defense. We were prey for the majority of our existence and had to think about fending off predators if we wanted to make it through the day.

The one thing that we do have that fixes all of these issues is our brain. The ability to think things out, to realize potential, and truth.

The greatest realization that we have as humans is to finally understand we are a predator too…and not just the prey. [Read more…]

2 Steps to Being Unconquerable

2 Steps to Being Unconquerable

Today’s post is a short one.

The latest book I’ve got loaded on my kindle is “The 33 Strategies of War” by Robert Greene. Strategy has always been something at the forefront of my mind because failing to realize its importance has cost me plenty in the past.

Relying on pure physical force is not only inefficient, but it’s rarely the best way to reach whatever your goal is. It could be business, wealth, relationships, fat loss, muscle gain or any other goal you might. Having the ability to think ahead and mold your actions into the result you want to see takes strategy.

Understanding the inefficiency of brute force and importance of the following actions will be you’re first two steps towards being unconquerable… [Read more…]

9 Isometric Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

9 Isometric Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

What the hell made me think of doing isometrics?

In the last two weeks I’ve spent over 24 hours in my car, gallivanting up and down I95. First thing I noticed is that the whole open road mentality most truckers romanticize is a bunch of bullshit.

The second thing I recognized is that even if I got to my destination with enough time to hit the track, the gym or even bust out my kettlebells, I just couldn’t do it. After sitting for that long, not eating or drinking and just trying to get where I’m going, when I finally got there all I wanted to do was down a shit ton of water and go to sleep.

So I worked out in the car… [Read more…]

Paleo(ish) Pizza

Paleo(ish) Pizza

Pizza does not equal paleo…but pizza does equals awesome.

This causes a problem for me.

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy following a paleo based diet and this inability to partake in one of the most delicious concoctions ever dreamed up is a huge bummer for me. Seriously, all I need is a shell and some green skin and I’d be a dead-ringer for a Ninja Turtle. [Read more…]

Sprint Workouts: Sweet and Sexy

Sprint Workouts: Sweet and Sexy

Sprint workouts are my favorite. Hands down.

Hitting the track on a warm spring day. Feeling the sun on your back after a long and frigid winter. More often then not the first time you get to pop your shirt off in months. And then you see it…

The extra poundage still hanging around from Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas dinner. Don’t forget all of the drinking on New Years Eve. Then there was the Valentines Day candy that you bought for your girlfriend but had to help her finish. Right after that it’s St. Patrick’s day, and you can’t say for certain but you’re sure the dye they used to turn the beer green must have added 2000 calories to each pint.

Fuck. Me.  [Read more…]
