Hey Gram, it’s been a minute I know. Just a few words. 🔥Find something you love to do and make it your mission to do it extraordinarily well. Live it, breathe it, and let it consume you. This lever isn’t PERFECT YET, but best believe I’m chasing to make it perfect one day. Be ambitious. Be virtuous.

I believe I have one of the best careers on the planet. After having the privilege of teaching a few classes of enthused and hungry athletes at the crack of dawn, I get to lift some heavy shit myself. Once that’s done I get to go home and chow down on a good zone meal :
5 Oz Shredded chicken w/
1 Cup Sautéed onions w/ olive oil,
2 Corn tortillas &
1 Cup of grapes * Don’t forget the mango habanero sauce 🤤
What’s your mornings like?

I told myself that in this years open I wouldn’t fuss too much with performing workouts Rx’d depending on the skills or strength required. I even shared this with my members and they looked at me baffled asking “Why coach?” Why? Because I had to be honest with myself. I wasn’t ready at all, not really. Despite everyone around me telling me it was all in my head. I’ve been up and down with my training the entire 2017 season.
—————-
So far I’ve done all the workouts Rx’d no pain in my shoulder not even post WOD. ——————
Did I do it to prove a point? No. Did I do it because of the expectations others have of me? No. Maybe I let my ego sneak in? No. I used this years open not to compete but as a test to see where I am mentally. Thanks @activeliferx For playing devils advocate & encouraging posts on being an athlete vs Coach.

Throw back to about 4.5 years ago when I felt my fittest. The left picture isn’t too bad but the right is when I was 100% focused on the small variables like water, recovery, & consistency.

I’m not where I want to be at the moment but I’m wiser now. The road I will pave will hold a lot stronger than ever before.

I’m not trying to sound like a broken record...im not trying to sound like a broken record... screw it, I will! •———————————
In order for us to build greater fitness overall (across broad time and modal domains), we must put in the ground work now. Scale today to achieve your long term goals. I’ve been saying this since day one. Scaling DOES NOT mean “weaker “ or less than. It just means we want to appropriately tune the work out that will provide YOU, the athlete, a better chance to hit the intended affectedness of the workout. LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT.

Pork shoulder aka Pernil, done! Once you get the hang of cooking different proteins, meal prepping is a fun process. Veggies are already taken care of. It’s going to be a heck of a year y’all.
