  • 1-13-21...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: 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 ....

  • 1-11-21...The Two Biggest Contributors to Frustration revisited

    Originally posted: 10-24-16 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 to build the fitness enough to make progress. Did you have unrealistic expectations to begin with? Did you expect to lose 30lbs in 30 days? That's unrealistic for most ....

  • 1-8-21...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: 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 ....

  • 1-6-21...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 ....

  • 1-5-21...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 ....

    Originally Posted: 9-30-16 How bad do you want it? Those results you imagine. What are you doing to set yourself up to win? Guess what guys and gals, you don't have to love the work. Sometimes the work is hard. Sometimes it down right sucks. Sometimes you don't feel up to it. Sometimes it's all you can do to get out of bed that morning. Sometimes you want to eat the freaking ice cream. Sometimes you want to skip workouts. Sometimes you don't want to do the work. The difference between those that are ultimately successful and those that aren't is that you don't have to love the work. Sometimes work is just work. The difference is that the ones who are successful do the work even when ....

  • 1-1-21...Happy New Year!! The 12 Reasons to NOT Train With Us Revisited...

    On the day when so many people are turning over their New Year's Resolutions, I thought I'd post one of my favorite blogs about why not to train us. Originally posted on: May 31st, 2011 12 Reasons Not to Train With Us: When the gym first started I had a mindset that I needed to please everyone. My thoughts then were that our program is for everybody. I fully believed that anyone could benefit from what we do, and what we at LivLimitless had to offer. We were hungry. We needed members. I felt like I needed to sell everyone. As I've grown as a coach and a more established brand, I've realized that my thoughts were close but not quite right. Although everyone CAN DO our program, ....

I didn't get a chance to do it last week, so I came in to the gym today to make it up. If you don't know, the workout is: 400m run 30 Box Jumps at 24 inches 30 Wall Balls at 20lbs 5 rounds for time I'm not sure what my PR was for that workout since for some reason I didn't write it down. I'll go over in another article why it's critical to journal your progress, but suffice it to say I didn't have a baseline to work from. I did however had a top time on the board, so that's what I based my expectations on. I knew that the top time the other day was 25:58, ....
