Way of the Warlord: Phase 6 Update

This week we continue with our Way of the Warlord program here at A Kings Castle.  This is designed to be an interactive physical, mental, and martial arts program where the authors of the site give out a two week challenge to the readers to better ourselves and become better men.

Phase 6 Update


Phase 6  challenge: Select your favorite lift, but lower weight to one you can get 4×12 on.

I was able to get 4×20 on shurgs and bent over rows this week.  My muscles were smoked at the end but I got a good pump. I want to try to get 4×20 on every lift over the next week.



Last Weeks Challenge:  Try to have a positive outlook on things you may usually may not.  If you feel yourself thinking negatively, check yourself and get back to equilibrium.

I’ve seen it carry over into this week as well. I’m reaching a point where I’m just enjoying me.  Getting back into the gym has got my head straight as well.  For the following week I’m just going to continue.


As always, leave your notes and goals in the comments.  Cheer your brothers on and hold each other accountable.  We’ll start phase 7 next Friday.

Phase 7 Starts Friday 1/19
