Use it wisely!

You can get better with time, but the opposite is also true, it all depends on your focus.

Use the time that you have to improve yourself and the world around you.

Remember this!

It is easier said than done.

But with meditation and constant self-observation, you can build the awareness to master these traits.

It will take daily work, and with time you will develop self-control and calmness. Then people's opinions, their negativity and other external factors won’t disturb your wellbeing.

Axe throwing was an interesting experience.

There are few things that make a good throw. Foot and Hand placement when you start, using your body as a unit and the follow through.

Like in life, the way you start and your follow through usually determines your success in business, relationships and/or your fitness goals.

Without the follow through, without the daily commitment to take the steps that will bring you closer to your goals. You will be unsuccessful.

So once you start commit to the follow through and within time you will hit your target 🎯.

Believe that!

to when all I did was teach at morning, noon and night!

Those were good times, it was a great learning experience. I went from competitor to coach to Martial artist. I learned a lot there about myself and how to relate to others.

I’ve learned even more since then but will be forever grateful for what that place taught me.

Side note: It’s crazy how camera quality has increased over the years. I used to think this was high quality 😂.

Your only true competition is yourself!

Admiring or be inspired by others is one thing, but don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to them. This will lead to a loss of joy and you will not feel complete or satisfied.

How do you do this?

Check in with yourself daily, was I a better friend? Partner? Parent? Athlete? Was I better than I was yesterday.

Make an improvement plan, set goals to be better, make a list of things you want to accomplish and take daily steps towards those goals and accomplishments.

Focus on your improvement and do the work daily.

Are you listening?

A lot of people operate on autopilot most days and rarely take the the time to be mindful of their body and how they feel.

This may seem fine until they come down with something, throw out their back or just all of a sudden feel burnt out.

But was it all of sudden?

If we take the time to check in with ourselves and be mindful of our bodies and how we feel. We will notice that there are signs that we need to rest, eat better, move more.

Taking those moments will help strengthen the connection with our body and allow us to take precautions before those whispers become screams.

Be the light.

We are all in this together! We should be lifting each other up, mentally, emotionally and physically, not holding each other down.

I love this move, The Big Clap.

I learned it years ago, I have used it with my clients and myself many times as part of a warm-up. It is also good for counteracting the slouching a lot of us do while sitting. It helps to open up your chest while coordinating breath with movement.

Here is how you do it:

Start with feet shoulder-width apart, have arms straight in front of you at shoulder height, palms together, fingers pointed forward.
As you inhale open your arms, spreading them apart squeezing your shoulder blades together and pointing your thumbs back (behind you). Show your heart. Exhale, bringing your arms together into a big clap.

*Option: Start with knees bent as you inhale. Straighten out your legs as your arms open up. Relax your knees to a slight bend when you exhale and your arms come back together.

Give it a shot!

Use that power!

This post is a little late, but better late than never.

On Monday I got my work out in helping my friend Claudio Lisias Souza move about 2000-3000 lbs of bumper plates and Dumbbells at his gym Harmony Fitness.

Being able to help people, clients, my friends or strangers it doesn’t matter, this is something I am grateful for. Making even the slightest difference in a positive way to someone’s life brings me joy.

It’s important to not only be grateful for what you have, but also for what you can give.

The more I read testimonials like this, it strengthens my belief that I'm on the right path. I'm recognizing that success for me, is directly aligned with connection and service. accomplishments are due to his discipline and hardwork.

Adding Explosive movements into your workouts that test your strength and speed, can improve physical performance. It also may reduce your risk of injury during activities that involve quick burst of acceleration and fast angle changes like in martial arts and field sports.

In this clip:

1️⃣ I begin in a high lunge position.
2️⃣ Then I explode up sc******ng my legs and arms.
3️⃣ Landing back in the position I started in.

The goal is not to burn yourself when doing explosive movements. Take ample rest in between sets, keep your reps low to 5 or lower. If your form starts to break down perform fewer reps or take longer breaks in between. Don't forget to work both sides 😉.

Enjoy!

It’s always good to challenge yourself!

Last week my lovely wife Marissa Wiltshire and I decided to try rock climbing. It was challenging mentally and physically and a lot of fun.

Half way up my first attempt at this climb, I panicked and let these thoughts take over my mind: “Where will my next grip or foot placement be?” “Can I reach the next grip?” “Do I have the strength to hold on?” I ended up not finishing that climb.

What I realized when I came down, is that when those thoughts were going through my head, my breath was shallow and erratic.

So on my second attempt, I focused on deep steady breathing and took it one foothold and grip at a time. Also, trusting that if I made the wrong move or slipped that my wife had me. As you can see from the photo I made it to the top.

This was a reminder for myself to breathe when I’m feeling panicked or uncertain. Every single time, breath calms me and my mind. It gives me a little time to remember to choose which thoughts to focus on.

Repetition creates habitual actions.

It’s the consistency of these actions that dictate how successful you will be in reaching your goals.

Now keep in mind that practice over time is more important than perfection. Focus your awareness and energy in a way that allows positive and healthy habits to form.

That’s when the magic happens.

Sometimes life punches you in the face.

Most of the time I can roll with the punches, but once in a while there is one I didn’t see coming. Those ones hurt.

I heard a fighter say something once that has stuck with me (I’m going to paraphrase what he said) “If you get hit and it hurts, that’s good it means you’re still conscious… now go and hit back harder!”

What I took from this as it applies to life is that you should never stop fighting. That doesn’t mean you always have to be in attack or retaliation mode. It means, don’t stop just because something hurts, you can find a way to continue.

I’m posting this again because the simple things often get overlooked.

Here are some things I focus on daily. These, in combination, have helped improve my mood, energy level and piece of mind.
I found when I was only doing one or two of these things, the results weren't as effective.
Try these out for 21 days and tell me what you think...
Let me break it down:
1. Sleep
- 6-8 hours of sleep per night
- No technology 1-2 hours before bed
- Last meal 3 hours before bed
2. Breath
- Focus on belly breathing rather than chest breathing
- When you need to be energized focus more on inhale
- When you need rest, focus more on exhale
- Notice the times in the day when you hold your breath
3. Nutrition
- Make sure you're eating a healthy balance between carbs, protein and fat
- Less refined sugar
- More vegetables
4. Movement
- Everyone should have a daily movement practice
- Choose something you love and move
- Multiple times a day

1️⃣ When you breathe this way during your warm-up, you are engaging the sympathetic nervous system (often associated with fight, freeze or flight). This prepares your body for stress-related activities. In this case, whatever strength or movement training you will do.

2️⃣ When you do the opposite in your cool-down you are engaging the parasympathetic nervous system that is associated with returning your hormone levels and body to normal. When you are finished training this helps to decrease your heart rate and get the body to a more relaxed state.

These 2 systems have interrelated functions working together to keep the body balanced. Having an understanding of this will help in training and in life.
