My wife would tell me I HAD to put the air conditioning on for the athletes.
I told her I would. I didn't want her worrying.
Then, I told the athletes, if my wife ever asks you guys if I turn the air conditioning on, you better say, "YES!".
Now, before you start telling me that I'm so mean, let me explain that everything I do is for the best interest of the athletes.
I've seen countless athletes KILL their training with heat over 100 degrees. Making their workouts comfortable will work against their success and the same holds true for YOUR workouts.
I've learned something through IM-peferfect workouts.
Let me explain how these IM-perfect workouts can work for your advantage as well....

The video footage above was pulled from a section of my up and coming Underground Strength Coach Certification.
I discussed program design in this video section and in this clip I'm sharing with you, I touch upon blending the optimal program design methods with the training of the mind, blended together, becomes a critical key to your success.
For my own training, and very likely for yours as well, I will be making changes to my training, nutrition and lifestyle. I am always evolving my training and lifestyle to help me achieve greater success in LIFE.
Why do my workouts and lifestyle constantly evolve?
As your life changes, as you age and as your body begins reacting differently to all the different stimuli, you must evolve or your health will decline.
In efforts to improve my overall health & fitness I am stepping OUTSIDE of the gym much more often and training much more in nature.
Mountain Biking to the beach, animal training on the sand, water training and more freedom, less structure.
I am encouraging you to start doing the same for yourself. And it's OK to train outdoors when it's cold. We spend too much time inside and not enough time connected to what we're meant to be doing.
I recently came across an article that ran a study and spoke about how chopping wood increases more testosterone than playing sport does. This article certainly isn't the end all be all of why I am changing. The changes come through greater knowledge and self experience.
If you've been following me for sometime, you recall my Soul Lifter explanation.
I am rethinking a lot about training, nutrition and lifestyle. More so than ever before.
I am looking back to that exact day when I took a job that stressed me out beyond words and had me hating life.
It was the same time I lost my abs as well.
The same year I tore up my shoulder and then my ACL.
I was stressed out all day and night. Nothing else changed in my life except my job. The stress took it's toll on my health and well being.
That day was early September of 2003, some 11 years ago yet it feels like yesterday.
As always, time flies.
It's TIME to control your life and everything else that affects your overall health.
STRONG Mind, STRONG Body, STRONG LIFE.
Lots of changes coming. Stay tuned.
