  • 1-16-19... Avoid The Crabs revisited...

    Originally Posted: 6-29-15 I read this story recently that I thought was very interesting... Crabs have really great dexterity and can climb out of almost anything. I'm not sure if this story was about a certain breed of crab or if this is true for all crabs, but this particular crab trap just has a hole cut in the top. The fisherman puts food in the container and the crab will climb in to eat the food. The crab could easily climb out but it doesn't because the food is there. Soon other crabs see the food and start following suit. Eventually, even though the food is gone, more crabs will continue to pile into the trap because they see the other crabs there, and they don't want to miss ....

    Originally Posted: 9-6-16 This past weekend I took the kids to see my grandparents (aka my parents since they raised me) in Pensacola, Florida. Technically they live in Foley, Alabama now, but it will always be Pensacola to me. Anyway, one of the thing I promised the kids we would do is go to the beach. We were only here for a brief trip. The first day we were here it rained all day. We had planned a cookout that day so it wasn't a big deal, and we hung out with family all day. The next day promised to be better. When we woke up and checked the whether the next day all was good, 84 degrees, sunny, 10% chance of rain. #perfect. Until, it started raining. Ugh! There goes the plans again. ....

  • 1-14-19..Fail Every Day revisited


    Originally posted on: March 24, 2011 Fear of failure, many times, stagnate your results. There are quite a few people sitting at home right now, who are not working out because they have a fear of failing. There are quite a few people at the gym, who rest on their bands, or don't put extra weight on the bar for the same reason, fear of failure! I'm here to tell you it is ok to fail. If you push yourself hard, you may even surprise yourself and succeed. Failing is something that should be celebrated! In fact, I try to fail everyday. When I do a workout, I try to push myself as hard as I can. I try to put as much weight on the bar as I think I can handle. Many times I fail. Many ....

    Originally Posted: 8-24-16 1 is greater than 0..... What does that mean? It means that doing 1 thing is greater then doing nothing. Many people get wrapped up in and overwhelmed trying to look at the big picture. In reality it's the little thinks that make so much difference. In our setting, showing up can be that. Showing up is greater then not showing up. If you show up you're going to accomplish something and that something is much greater than doing nothing. Trying 5lbs heavier on the weight. Those 5lbs are much greater than not trying, even if you fail. 1 > 0. Even if you can't show up to the gym one day, do something. 1 > 0. We get so caught up in the fancy, we want ....

  • 1-11-19....What Weight Are You Pulling? revisited...

    Originally Posted: 9-7-16 Yesterday we did a workout that involved pulling a sled 100m, then after pulling the sled we ran a 400m run. While doing the workout this idea of the blog came to me. Yes I know, I'm a nerd and think of blogs while working out, (it's usually me trying to take my mind off the pain I'm enduring). Anyway, there was a pretty neat order of events that happened while doing the workout. Round 1: I came out of the gates hard and was able to finish heavy sled drag in like 40 seconds. When I dropped the sled and took off for the 400m run, my legs felt super springy. The 400m came easier than normal, and before I knew it I was done with that run. My split for that 400m ....

  • 1-10-19....End, Beginning, Middle revisited ...

    Originally Posted: September 28, 2011 In the book the,War of Art by Steven Pressfield, he discusses many things that I believe I will blog about, but one point that I thought was interesting was how authors start a book. Many times, authors will write the ending first. If you have the ending done, then you can keep that in mind when writing the rest of the book. It gives you a direction to go to, and a finale that you need to reach. The second thing that authors usually do is write the beginning. They set up all the story lines and characters and give the book a sound opening all while keeping the ending in mind. Finally, they fill in the middle of the book. The plot unfolds, but ....

    Originally Posted: 12-6-2012 This is the author of an amazing book called the, Happiness Advantage. I highly recommend this book. The idea is if you keep doing the same things your brain will start focusing on those things. This has amazing implications for your life. At LivLimitless if you keep focusing on health and hanging out with people that focus on health, you will be more inclined to see things that are healthy and stay away from things that are unhealthy. Coincidentally, the opposite is also true. The key is to surround yourself with people that are focused on health. Read magazines that focus on health. Study videos of healthy habits. Read our blog. Talk about the things that ....

  • 1-8-19...The Two Biggest Contributors to Frustration revisited

    Originally posted: 10-24-16 I took a brief hiatus from writing. I've had a lot going on. I was out of town, then when I got back I started a new schedule with my kids, so it's been an adjustment. Today I want to talk about the two major contributors that lead to most people's frustration in any endeavor. Those two are: Impatience and Unrealistic Expectations Think about it for a moment... Any frustration that you have can likely be boiled down to one or both of the factors. For example, you're frustrated with your fitness level, but you've only been working out for a month. Why haven't you dropped 30lbs yet? If you're frustrated there, than you likely are being impatient. It takes ....

  • 1-7-19....Your Offensive Line Revisited....

    Originally posted: 12-4-2012 I LOVE football! As many of you know, I worked in college football for a couple of years with Texas A & M and the University of Oklahoma. When I was at OU we won back to back conference championships. It was awesome to be a part of a championship calibre team. Anyone who has ever worked in team sports especially high calibre team sports knows that one person can not win a championship. If you are at a high school one star kid can help push a team over the edge, but in higher level athletics everyone is involved in the championship. Usually the quarterback gets most of the attention and accolades. Of course it's an important position, they have to ....

  • 1-5-19....Rate Limiting Factor Revisited

    Originally posted: August 21, 2011 Wikipedia defines the rate limiting factor also known at the rate determining step as: A chemistry term for the slowest step in a chemical reaction. The rate determining step is often compared to the neck of a funnel; the rate at which water flows through the funnel is determined by the width of the neck, not by the speed at which water is poured in. In similar manner, the rate of reaction depends on the rate of the slowest step. Click here for the full definition Why am I talking about chemistry? Everyone in the gym has a rate limiting factor in their performance. Everyone has something that is holding them back from what they could possibly ....
