Last weekend I learned some serious lessons in both life AND lifting.
The Underground Strength Conference & the first graduating class of Warrior University in one weekend was INTENSE emotionally AND physically.
I want you to Learn from these lessons that I took away from that amazing weekend.
Below, I share my lessons so you can also see how you can AND should apply them to your OWN life for GREATER success.....

Here's a Video from The Ultimate Warrior talking about his experience after filming Warrior University.

Warrior U. did NOT pan out as I expected...... or, as anyone else expected. Some of these stories I simply keep locked up with me after The Warrior Man has left this world.
The lesson of Warrior U not running smoothly reminds me that certain things are simply not meant to be. I am fine with that.
With all the flaws and setbacks that happened during the filming of Warrior U, what truly counts is that the men who went through the training that day had their lives changed.
Rather than focus on the bad that happened, I will focus on the good.
There is no power when you focus on the bad. Let it go. It's gone. Move onward and upward.
Live The Code 365 - This Applies to Life AND Lifting.
As I type, I'm away for a few days in the mountains with my family.....
Check the pic below snapped early in the AM from my deck.
This mini vaca was perfect timing for a lil' escape as my mind and body definitely needed a break from the hustle & bustle life I tend to push myself into. A change of scenery doesn't mean laziness, I will tell you that much!
I encourage the same for you.
Escape from your norms and do something different. Get away from it all.
- Live or spend time elsewhere from your norm.
- Train somehow, someway different from your norms.
Do NOT allow staleness and same ol' same ol' become your habit. You MUST push the envelope and just as Warrior said at The Underground Strength Conference, it's EAST to get Comfortable
Yesterday I took my kids swimming and I banged out 400 push ups before we left the pool. Sets of 20-50 reps helps get the job done FAST!
One of my wrestlers told me he's been doing 300 push ups a day, so, I was inspired to do a lil' more! ha ha
The training I'll implement here will revolve around a BOAT Load of bodyweight training and stone training as well. There are stones piled high where I'm staying so I'll be using stones to get in some primitive training.
I'm keeping this one short n' sweet but please drop a comment below and share with friends. I'll be sending out my powerful e mails regardless so keep an eye on your e mails. If you're not subscribed then you're missing out, Subscribe HERE.
By the way, those of you wondering about my training..... it's a MIX of BEAST & Bodyweight Bodybuilding.
In the fall, a few close friends & I will be going through a special training challenge led by Navy SEALs. It should be a mix of getting our teeth kicked in along with a kick in the balls. This is motivating the heck outta me to push the running, bodyweight training and the higher volume of work.
In addition, I am running and getting in some beach training on the sand with running.... soon, it will be swimming and stand up paddle boarding added to the mix.
Get after it in your OWN life as well.
