  • 9-25-18...Action Is Key...

    “Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.” ― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment One of the things that gets me most with our clients, is we make recommendations on nutrition or training principles etc, and the person comes up with all kinds of excuses why they can't do what we are suggesting. I can't follow the nutrition for this weekend because it's my birthday. I can't workout this week because I have some event that morning. It honestly ....

  • 9-24-18.... Our Role As Coaches...

    As we always have beginners and new people joining our program I feel like this is a topic I should address. Our role as coaches at LivLimitless is really 3 fold... 1) To make sure you're moving safely, effectively, and efficiently, in that order. This is to mitigate the possibility of injury and promote the effect that we want from the workout. Many times people have issue here, but typically the issues lie with two things. Number 1 is fear. We as humans are so afraid of looking stupid, or so worried about not knowing anything that we don't seek out help. Call it fear, call it pride, it all boils down to ego. We as coaches are here to answer questions. It's a major part of our job. We ....

  • 9-21-18... How Do You Face Adversity?

    I wrote these words a few years ago, and I think they still hold true today.... "Storms make trees take deeper roots." - Dolly Parton Have you faced adversity recently? How did you deal with it? Did you take a victim mentality? Did you decide whoa is me? OR Did you face it head on? Embrace the challenge? Lean in, and dig deep to grind through? Adversity is important in life. What I love about training is that when you train hard, it makes adversity seem not so bad. It makes large things seem smaller. It makes hard things seem easier. So I want to urge you in the gym to go as hard as you can. Embrace the difficulties. We call it embracing the suck! Enjoy the tribulations. Then when ....

  • 9-20-18... Head Trash...

    We've all got it. That little monster inside our head that says things like.... "You can't lift that, it's too heavy." "You shouldn't got to the gym today, you've got too much stuff to do." "That's too hard." "It's too hot." "I can't do this." "I'm going to fail." The list goes on and on. The reality is it's the voice of self doubt. What you have to do is realize that we all have that voice. We are all scared of failure. We all want to take the easy road. We all want to make excuses, but you have to realize that talk for what it is....head trash. When we have trash, we throw it out and that's what you need to do with the head trash as well. Don't listen to it. Don't give ....

  • 9-19-18... Track Your Work....

    Do you track what you do? Do you write down your nutrition? Do you write down your maxes? Do you track your workouts? Do you measure yourself? Numbers that are tracked are the ones that get managed, and the performance numbers that we manage will translate into results for you. It's critical you write your stuff down so we can show your progress. The more you track, the more successful you'll be. It's critical. So hit your PR's this week and write them down! 9-19-18

  • 9-17-18...It's PR Week!!!

    This week is PR week. We are going to spend the next two weeks testing our maxes. The way this works is you start off with a light weight and warm up the lift. Then you need to add some weight and do a rep, rest appropriately and add some more weight. Here's a sample of percentages to work up to test your max if you have a previous max: Set 1: 50% of 1RM x 8 reps Set 2: 60% of 1RM x 5 reps Set 3: 70% of 1RM x 3 reps Set 4: 80% of 1RM x 1 rep Set 5: 90% of 1RM x 1 rep Set 6: Max test 102% ish of 1RM x 1 rep (aim for something that would be a PR but is definitely hitable) Set 7: Max test based off of previous lift Set 8: same as before It's important to build up the muscles in ....
