Rowan Mills has worked hard over the past few months and the numbers only tell a small part of the story.
-
Improving on all the movements and feeling more mobile and stronger beyond the numbers.
-
He even crushed an additional '45' workout that I put together for his birthday at his request....
-
Illness stopped him from completing every session set, yet when most people would tuck tail, he cracked on even after long days of training his own clients and travel.
-
45 years old and still plenty left in the tank, and in reality we still haven't really focused on strength, so be interesting to see what happens there.
-
No Weak Links has brought some amazing people together in the group and it's been funny at times with the banter after sessions...
-
It's not easy...
-
It's available to join at the moment, 6 months for £197.
-
You can defer starting until January....

A joint you have to look after- the shoulder joint and all 4 of them!
-
One of my favourite routines that you can catch fully on You Tube.
-
Kettlebells are light and the focus is movement from the shoulder and not the hands.
-
Keep the arms straight and slow everything down and slowly set fire to the shoulders as they pump up and get ready for the work ahead.
-
#shoulderprehab

I am trying.
-
Listening to the continual noise of people listing what's wrong with the industry...I am slowly delivering a standard.
-
Innocuous conversations with good friends like @grenadejay @philgraham01 when my ears and mouth are used in the ratio intended.
-
I listen and may not be super slick at putting things together like others...I really listen, watch, learn and will never stop.....continually build.
-
I have some amazing coaches that started with me 3 years ago in the @combinedstrength and I genuinely owe the founding members a lot- I don't take that lightly.
-
I don't come from 'the fitness industry'. I leapt in from a life that very few will understand. A standard that I genuinely think will take time to really implement....
-
Current problems are solutions for bigger issues in your future.
-
I am happy to continually work on that solution...
-
Combined Strength....always a little further.

Your mind is stronger than your body; your body is as strong as the mind.
-
Always a little further.

1996 Purple Star in Fort Bragg for a throwback to a 21 year old me 😬
-
A year later my life changed in a big way, from virtually indestructible to crushing my spine and losing out on 'my pinnacle'.
-
The door opened to a new path from a hard decision- however I still had to prove the diagnosis that I wouldn't return at least to full duty and parachuting....well, you have to show people what can be done.
-
I later passed into the Army Physical Training Corp....again, with people doubting my ability considering previous injuries....
-
People pass judgement based on their own fears and how they would handle the situation.
-
I know how strong I am- that is enough.
-
You are the same...know you have the strength when you make the decision.

Time well spent...
-
Make the effort, even when you think it's small or insignificant- the work ethic is what matters.
-
Sweeping the the floor, taking out the trash, wiping the seats down, folding towels, maintaining equipment on weekly checks or sat on a till serving people.
-
The job title doesn't magically transform you......
-
You actually become the transformer of other people's opinion as they experience someone who has values and standards- regardless.

Have the courage to stare through the heart of someone when they question something that in reality they will never understand, or indeed have the work ethic and balls 'to do and be' something different than they already are.
-
I am nowhere near where I want to be in life, yet deeply content with who I am right now.
-
I don't have the story of letting my life get that bad I had $10 in my account, or whatever the going rate is for a good pitch to promote a hard start to fame and apparent success.
-
I am a wee schemer from Scotland that knows what having nothing feels like compared to all the 'cool kids' back in the day.
-
What really stops you from getting into a mess is your deep rooted values and knowing exactly who you are beyond the expectation of others- trust me theirs is based on spurious media filled BS that rots their own sense of self.
-
I am happy with the man staring back at me.
-
Your mirror should reflect the same.

Glad to have the beast back from @ebwatches and ready for some more adventures...
-
The life it's seen thus far, is as colourful as the strap itself.
-
Always a little further...

#ironmac #ebwatches

One of my favourite spots in the world.....

#lakebled #Slovenia #travel

Can you still do the 1% work required to move you forward or default to the excuse of no time, no equipment....no gains.
-
There is always something that can be done.
-
This too easy for you? Then use it as a warm up and maybe check your form....are you getting chest to bar on each rep of those chin ups?
-
6-IRON
6 Chin Ups
6 Dips
6 Burpee
Every 60s for 6 minutes
-
It should keep you on the edge with enough time to focus on controlling your breathing after the Burpee that made you jump through the roof....
-
Tag and share 👊🏻

I was lucky to grab this book for £10 at the weekend....and yes, I made sure I paid for it. The simple reason is that both Matt and Keris have dedicated their life to creating an incredible amount of information that is so simple to put into practice....the definition of really understanding your craft.
-
Highly recommended....and before you get all high and mighty about paleo and it's use today...it's way beyond that...
-
Awesome work @fitterfood

Had a cracking weekend and it's been the end of a pretty substantial week.
-
Always a pleasure to spend time with a good friend in the industry - @philgraham01 -

I stepped back from presenting to allow other coaches to step up and show the depth of their knowledge.
-
When you 'panic' you revert back to what you know and do on a daily basis....
-
Speaking at a show will allow this to happen- and every coach stepped into the task and delivered to show the genuine depth of the @combinedstrength group.
-
Thanks to the @sfnexpo for the invite to speak and be part of the show.

Guys like @phillearney @bencoomber for their continued work to raise the bar.
-
For those of you who took the time to stop, listen, ask and say hello- 👊🏻
-
I have a perspective on the industry and you will certainly be hearing more...
