Perspective About Your Peer Group

Peer pressure is real!

You will turn into the 5 people that you spend the most time with. If you have certain goals that you want to accomplish, then you need to surround yourself with people who possess traits that will help you reach those goals. Whether your goals are in weight loss, strength, improve your health or something completely different, these concepts hold true.

Well good thing that is not the only form of meditation!

1. Write your thoughts on paper

Each morning, spill out a page of junk that’s been on your mind. Notice the pressure of the pen on the […] Read more

How Long Does Improvement Take?

I’ve Always Wondered…

What improving fitness means. I know I’ve become stronger, faster, and more mobile over the last few years. I don’t have any way to quantify my improvement, other than improved times on similar workouts or increased load in some of my lifts.

I started searching this week to see if there were any studies or data that quantify what it takes to improve. I ran across a company called Beyond the Whiteboard (BTW). BTW is an electronic workout journal. Started in 2006, BTW now have somewhere around 65,000 users. Their users logged over 1 million workouts on the site. […] Read more

Now they are the same task but […] Read more

6). Supplements. By definition, A dietary supplement is intended to provide nutrients that may otherwise not be consumed in sufficient quantities. The problem is folks use supplements as a meal replacement and skip out on the actual meals. Similar to the protein bar point (#1).
