The Motivation Booster Workout

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.

The Lone Leader

This isn’t my typical article, just a view on life as I go through it. I promise no protein, eggs, coffee, or tae kwan do. As I figure out this thing called life, I feel that you reflect on things as you experience them.  Wisdom, to me, is truly grasping a problem or concept that you have lived through, viewing it from all possible angles. All of you seem to be on a path to bettering yourself in some way.  When you better yourself, you tend to go against the grain of most people.  Most people seem to follow patterns and will take the easy way out.  Furthermore, I’m finding that as you lead in life, its quite lonely at the top. Today I’ll go over just how I’m dealing with this, why I think its ultimately good, and how you can deal with not only being focused on your goal, but also enjoying the process too.

Get Yoked Til The Casket Drop

I was talking with WB about days off and how it affects you.  Not just physically, but mentally  The joke about how the first day you pick up the iron is the day you’re forever small has some truth in it.  The other side of the spectrum is that when we miss a day, its not others we let down, but ourselves.  I think all of us here can agree that we fucking love this game.  As tough as it is, with the pain, the time it takes, the clean eating etc, we all keep coming back for more, but why is that?

A Word on Confidence

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.
