We’ve all heard about tactics you can use to achieve success. DGAF, fake it til you make it, etc but I’ve noticed a mindset that many men these days have adopted due to a myriad of reasons, but the outcome is always the same. Today we’ll go over what this modern loser mindset is and how you can work toward fixing it.
At WB Fitness we follow a strict workout and diet routine. It is designed to be brutal but efficient in making you lean, cut and looking good. We adhere to this regimen to achieve the results we desire, but everyone who spends time in the gym knows all about that day where you make it to the gym, but your mind isnt here. The music isnt working. You’re dreading that next lift. So what do you do? You’re already there, so dont waste the time. Today I’ll talk about a fun thing you can do to get your head right, get some reps in, and get back on track.
Jak and I have decided to do a 3 month challenge -starting May 18, 2018 and ending August 10, 2018- where we will compare the differences between doing weight training (J.Nyx) and bodyweight exercises (Jak).

Confidence is a trait that gets brought up a lot in the ‘sphere. In my opinion, confidence is often confused for other personality traits and mannerisms that do not accurately define the word. Interestingly enough, I’m reading a book by legendary bodybuilder Dave Draper, who defined it in a way that hit home with me. In all the blogs and books I’ve read, no one seemed to have hit the correct definition more than Dave. Today we’ll go over what it means to gain and have true confidence, and if you’re struggling with it, how to build it.

Each family has one man who seems to be the center figure of the group. Not just the father in the nuclear family, but a guy who is the figurehead of the extended family as well. At some point you may find yourself in that role, as I believe I have. Today I’ll explain what this role means, and how to be dependable without being taken advantage of.
You guys get a WotW break today. One facet you read about on an number of manosphere sites is how to build confidence. Guys young and old want to be more confident in life. The conventional method these sites preach is to “fake it til you make it.” I have always had an issue with this way of thinking as I believe it is flawed. Today I’ll go over why I think “faking” your way to success is bullshit, and how you can truly build your confidence with examples I’ve used in my own life.
My life is pretty busy. Having a full time job as a Systems Administrator, 3 kids, a wife, house being built, after school activities, homework, and studying for my certification exams is a lot on one plate. That said, you need time to be by yourself and do things you want to do. For me this is going to the gym in the early morning. I have always been an early riser, but for anyone who can, I’d recommend getting up earlier in the morning if possible. Today I’ll go over the benefits I’ve found from getting up early in the mornings.
