I just sit here and am thinking as a species; just the human race; especially us as American’s because here we are so colossally competitive we all just have to learn and employ and deploy kindness.
I think it starts with manners. I mean manners can seem so trivial, but it creates the paradigm for nice. Expressing gratitude by saying thank you, please, or even doing things like holding the door for people, not eating until everyone is served their food; they all are like little signals to people letting them know that you care about them and lets them know you respect them too, which I think is important because I believe it spills over and informs your additional actions when you have good manners. Looking people in the eye and being polite. .
When people express their manners to you, you get a good feeling ya know? Like, when someone holds the door open for you and you say thank you it just feels nice doesn’t it? .
The other day I was walking past someone and I went “ How you doing man?” and he just stared at me and immediately I thought to myself “whaaaaa?” and I felt angry immediately like my instinct took over and a part of me was like “Hey, Fuck you man!” but then the other part of me took over and I was like “man what a sad bastard, well whatever that’s his life I didn’t do anything wrong I just said hi because I was just trying to be nice” but he looked at me almost like I was weak for saying something like that; for saying hi to him ya know? Like grrrrrr.
Let’s all just be cool to each other and stop getting in the way of each other we are all living this thing together. Help someone with their groceries to their car and see what happens. Love ya savages ❤️💯 like always and forever❤️❤️😊👊
I hardly ever do bench press anymore. Actually the last time I did bench I posted it on this account.
Although, for not doing bench press often it feels good to know I’m stronger than I ever have been with this exercise. This was my 4th set where I progressively went up in weight each set. On this particular set I did 225 pounds two times and had minimal help from @rcomfortdds
Unconventional Training works.
Sets of 10 to 12 🏋️♂️
Since finishing with ‘powerlifting’ workouts I’ve been focussing on sets of 10-12. Periodising your training with different rep ranges is vitally important for making progress. But it’s also important for making sure you’re not just ‘going through the motions’. .
A lot of people fall into the trap of going to the gym and repeating the same workouts at the same tempo over and over again. Increase the weight, increase the volume or increase the tempo over time to keep making progress.

Round 2 of hiking mountains during summer months then skiing down. We were pretty scared there wouldn't be enough snow, but surprisingly there was continuous snow on the runs, top to bottom. Then Gabe had the idea of going into the trees for a good ol' tree run. I couldn't help but to agree on the good adventure. Unfortunately, I think he sprained his thumb(2nd video) and I tapped a couple rocks, but you you gotta crack a couple eggs to make an omelet sometimes. All in all a good adventure before work this evening. •
Some core training. My favourite ways by incorporating it into other movements. Heavy clubbell work with the 35lb #onnit steel club. Front-loaded single-leg step-ups and some hunter squats.
I made sure to check if Rudy was breathing every couple of minutes lol.
Getting some great feedback on our latest podcast. Always nice to hear that we are helping people on their journey. Highly recommend checking it out especially if you are struggling with nutrition. Link in bio.
I wrote an article recently for @bodybuildingcom describing these foot waves. My preference is to use them for short bursts of 5-12 seconds with full power and full recovery. If you just want to embrace the suck you could work for 30-60 seconds. My legs have never gotten sore from these (abs are another matter 😈🔥). Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Ps. The duct tape can be removed with no damage to the rope
Chains everywhere! A great tool to use for increasing strength on a variety of lifts. ##
Here with my client, we used them for the back squat and bench press. All we’re doing is manipulating the physics of the bar. When implemented properly into programming, strength gains ahead!🔥💪🏼
We get a lot of questions about drinking TianChi®. When’s the best time? Should I always take it on an empty stomach? What’s the best water…distilled?
I understand perfection and wanting to do things for the highest benefit. It’s obvious to avoid tap water because TianChi® is made to enhance brain function and most tap water contains known neurotoxins. But distilled? It may actually be worse.

Time to dial it in a little for summer and ☀️
For me, that means some tweaks to the diet and adding in some fasted conditioning. I don’t run often, unless to warm up or someone’s chasing me. I prefer HIIT cardio style training with intense intervals. For me this works the best for getting in shape fast and losing some chunk around the ol’ midsection. -
My advice to those looking to lean up a little for family VACA- Stop ONLY running or doing endless amounts of steady state cardio. Wake up early- get a little caffeine in you and Do some HIIT. It doesn’t matter what you do - just move. Pick 4-5 exercises and do them at high intensity then rest 30 seconds and do it again for 25-30 minutes. You don’t need ropes, tires and boxes like I have here. Jumping jacks, mountain climbers, hi knees and a 40 yard sprint will do. Shoot for a heart rate of 125+ for at least 25 minutes.
I’m going to start trying to add some ‼️FCOD‼️ (Fasted conditioning of day) a couple times per week to give some ideas for circuits to do:
This morning’s 5:30 FCOD:
—Jogged 1/2 mike to get loose
—50 heavy jump ropes
—50 speed jump ropes
—10-12 tire flips
—30 second battle ropes
—10 box jumps —repeat, repeat, repeat for 25 minutes. ———-
