•authenticity• Something that’s often forgotten is that we all have something to offer. Social media (highlight reels) often gives the impression that there is something that we are missing or that we lack. - So in turn, one imitates and looks for validation through that very medium that is full of half-truths. The only outcome is further reaching and further imitating. - Getting intimate with one’s inner nature and following it as if were a crime not to, seems to be the basis for personal enlightenment and fulfillment. In essence blocking out all of the outer voices and being well in tune with that beautiful, life-giving inner voice. Everyone is special in many ways, but that notion gets lost.  ____________________________________________________ Erging Plan By Garageathlete Yesterday A.M: 6x6Min/2min Rest Today A.M.: 8000m Steady State - Yesterday P.M Squats: 375lbs/5 Sets/2-3 Reps (some failed reps) No Belts/Wraps Then E2MOM 10 Single Leg Weighted Step Jumps: x10 total/50lbs DB Split Squats: x10 total/100lbs Then E2MOM 10 Strict Pullup: x10 Hip Thrusts: x10/145lbs - #Squat #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #americanninjawarrior #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning
•showing up• Stay Hard 🔥🔥🔥 --------------------------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ Every day presents a new day to reset the bar! It’s up to us to seize the moments. Life’s not always going to work out to our advantage and tee us up for success so we must seize the moment when we are at the disadvantage. Don’t let the bad days of life get you down. It’s not always going to be 70 and sunny! Take pride in the fact that on those miserable days when the majority of people in this world don’t want to get out and train, they will be watching you through their living room window. Be the warrior ready each day to show up at the Colosseum of Life!

•simple agendas pt.2• Had a phenomenal discussion with my homeboy @thenatechambers about the value of auditing one's time. And I left that discussion with the notion of carrying a light agenda on a daily basis. - Busyness is not a metric for productivity; most of the time that "busyness" is simply bullshit work, with the most important items being cast to the side for another day. Quantity over quality. - Changing things around (quality over quantity) leaves one with more time, more satisfaction, with way less effort. All wins. Doing more by doing less. It's a good way be 👍🏽. ____________________________________________________ Deadlifts: 425lbs/3reps/5sets/3min rest Strict Press: 175lbs/3reps/5sets/3min rest Then 5 Rounds/90 sec rest Power Clean: 175lbs/x5(add weight each round) Broad Jumps: 40m Then Vertical Jump Testing - #Deadlift #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning #photo
As quite a few of you know, I have been working on a large project that I'm nearly ready to share with the world. This is another step in that process.😊 - I am honored to be featured on the @whentojump podcast tomorrow where I discuss said project and broader philosophy. Check it out!! @blueprintphoenix #ElevatingStandards ____________________________________________________ #Repost @whentojump (@get_repost ) ・・・ “I jumped from being a desk jockey to designing athletic training apparel because I figure a life well lived is one where you follow your own inner nature.

•non-action• Timing really is everything, knowing when to act, and more importantly when NOT to act. I'm certainly far from getting IT right. - Starting to learn that slowing things down, understanding my own abilities and responding to things based on my personal nature has put me on the right path more times than I care to admit. - The start seems to be clarity from simplifying. Have a great week 😊 - Fall 11•11•2018 🌅 - #BlueprintPhoenix #ElevatingStandards ___________________________________ #optoutside #lifestyle #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #sunset #gymrat #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #sunset #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #health #healthy #train #hike #rei1440project #beach #philosophy

•3 days 2 PRs• It's interesting what your mind comes up with under significant physical duress. For me the only way to describe a 1K time trial is 3 minutes that feel like an hour and then 15 to 20 minutes of being on the floor coughing and throat burning after it's over. My only thought... - Gratitude. Grateful for this life, grateful to be able to embark on experiences like this, and grateful for a supportive community. - Thanks to @concept2inc @garageathlete , @dandailyritual , @adamwakefieldpt , @jane.erbacher ,@funksoulbutter ,@bec_inspire_healthylifestyle , @sophiemgrace and the rest of the community for being constant streams of inspiration👍🏽. - For everyone else who's doing this, let's get the fuck after it!!! ____________________________________________________ Ski ⛷️ 1k Time Trial PR: 3:15 Row 🚣🏽‍♂️ 5k Time Trial PR: 19:10 - #Concept2 #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @concept2greg @BlueprintPhoenix ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #photo #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning
•5k PR• It really is all about practice. - Thanks to @garageathlete 's programming and guidance, I achieved a 30sec PR at a ROUGH distance for me...after squat day. That said I knew I could do it because of all the work done previously. - Anxiety decreases tremendously with good practice habits, seems to be half the battle 👍🏽. - I appreciate the ERG community for the constant stream of inspiration! ____________________________________________________ Row 🚣🏽‍♂️ 5k Time Trial PR: 19:10 - #Concept2 #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix @concept2inc ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #photo #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning
•simple agendas• I really didn't understand this until recently. Productivity doesn't mean checking off tasks on some overloaded list. - Using busyness as a sign of self and outer importance as if one will get a gold star for things done during the day. - An overloaded mind and an overloaded schedule is hazardous in the long run. Finally learning that slowing down brings an increased sense of clarity. The byproduct is real productivity, getting things done that SHOULD be done. ____________________________________________________ A.M.

•non-forcing/straining• Daily, I set a plan and try to stick to that plan. Though today, as is the case sometimes, shit happens, and my original "plan" was ruined. - In years past, I would have been pissed off and tried everything in my being to force my original plan into motion...usually making even more of a mess of the situation. - This time, letting things flow along, reflecting on what's happening, and then responding in kind...not only does it work out, but better than what I originally expected, and most importantly everything remains calm. - It got me to thinking, when disruptions happen the typical response is to fight fire with fire (forcing/straining), but in reality it's always best to fight fire with water. - Fall 11•01•2018 🌅 - #BlueprintPhoenix #ElevatingStandards ___________________________________ #optoutside #lifestyle #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #sunset #gymrat #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #health #healthy #train #hike #rei1440project #beach #philosophy
•progress pt2• Bravery and valor can be defined in many ways. Sometimes, the bravest thing one can do is walk their own self-defined path when broader society pressures them to conform. - Or worse yet, we take the totalitarian approach and live life because of unwarranted expectations...the epitome of cowardice. - Living life in this way, with no self guidance is a life lost. Being everywhere but going no where. Steer the ship and go 👍🏽. ____________________________________________________ A.M.

•daily mindful action• Stay Hard 🔥🔥🔥 --------------------------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ The grind is never-ending. The second you think you have made it, that’s the second you start to decline in life. It’s great to look at your resume of the things you have accomplished in life. Your resume is a tool you can use to remind yourself of all you have accomplished and overcome but don’t look at it so long that you are in awe of yourself. There is no countdown to greatness. If you are breathing, you should be grinding and always trying to get better!! --------------------------------- #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #mindfulness #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning
•inner quiet pt3• Time can't be saved, only spent wisely or foolishly. With all of the time saving devices in existence, as a collective, we are the busiest we've ever been in human history. - Regarding time, as some frees up, perhaps those free spaces shouldn't be filled in as much.

•90/10 rule• 90% of life is incredibly beautiful, though at times we get caught in the trap of focusing on the 10% shit storm (most of which are situations we can't control). - Sometimes it just takes refocusing the internal lens.

•the abundance of less• Simplicity is a paradox. The very nature of simplifying is one of the most difficult things in human existence. - There is an unimaginable level of mental, emotional, and physical clarity with simplicity as a goal. Some things have to go, some people have to go, most importantly some thoughts have to go, and it's a difficult road when eliminating, but it's a necessary journey. - Simplicity is pure beauty. Complexity makes life dull...and in many cases leads to an early grave. The world is simple, life is too👍🏽 ____________________________________________________ A.M.

•self transcendence• Stay Hard 🔥🔥🔥 --------------------------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ DO NOT OVERTHINK THIS MESSAGE! There are a lot of us who love finding a way out. Once an issue arises- medical, mental, emotional, physical, etc- we take that easy out! We don’t try to find a way through, over, or around the fucking issue. I was born with a few medical issues that I had to figure a way through & around to get where I am today. One of the issues I deal with is Raynaud’s Disease. I got this from being in 3 Hell Weeks, going to Ranger School in the wintertime and tons of cold-weather and -water training throughout my military career. Whenever my body gets cold, it goes straight to survival mode. All the blood in my body goes straight to my core to protect my major organs. So at temps below 55 degrees, my hands and feet are fucked! For several years during my winter runs, I layered my hands with 5 pairs of gloves covered with a wool sock on top, with little relief. I could have easily taken a different route Instead I still chose to run in races like Frozen Otter where the temperature was 10 below. I recognize a lot of people have different medical & physical issues - some are permanently disabled others have some limitations that truly limit their physical capabilities. A lot of people comment on my posts “what do I do if I have XYZ issue?” My response: I am not saying to be me and do what I do. I am saying do whatever it is you can possibly do given your particular and unique situation. If you happen to be in a wheelchair and your arms still work, try doing a 5k and get your upper-body jacked! For me, I struggled to learn in a traditional classroom setting & with reading comprehension. Some people can hear something and it all just clicks- yeah, well, not me! I need to get my books in advance of classes and spend endless hours writing the content from the textbooks word for word and rely on my ability to recall the content from having written it over and over again. Don’t let whatever disability you have- be it mental or physical- cause your mind to close to the possibilities! There is always something we can do
There's a lot of work to do, but when friends visit from distant places, that importance rightfully shifts. - @amanda.nicole.m (Sweden) @ursulaceleste - Fall 10•19•2018 🌅 - #BlueprintPhoenix #ElevatingStandards ___________________________________ #optoutside #lifestyle #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #sunset #gymrat #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #health #healthy #train #hike #rei1440project #beach #philosophy

•habits matter• Legs felt like shit from 10x10 back squats, but my mind didn't and wanted the the challenge. Couldn't rely on physical prowess, but instead sound technique. - It's true that during tough training sessions one defaults to what they consistently practice (solid habits). Luckily with people like @jane.erbacher and others teaching sound technique, this session, while tough, was very manageable. - Speaking of habits, applying that same thought process in all things fortifies the body and mind. One defaults to what they repeatedly do (actions), practice, or ingest (books/media otherwise). Be mindful 👍🏽. ____________________________________________________ A.M.

🛑Stop letting people make your fitness about shame🛑⠀ ⠀ I’m tired of reading things from trainers like “excuses burn zero calories” or “indulge too much this weekend? Come train with me.” These sentiments tap into a deeply ingrained cultural message that our value is rooted in how physically attractive we are to others. Not only does this perpetuate a psychologically damaging message, but research shows it’s simply not an effective motivator. Shame is really only good at one thing- producing more shame.⠀ ⠀ My personal mission is to flip the script on fitness. We’ve allowed body composition to dictate the conversation, but there are FIVE defined components of health-related fitness. That makes body composition a mere 20 percent of fitness factors that contribute to your health. Expand the focus to include skill-related fitness and that number drops to 9 percent.⠀ ⠀ Moreover, the other factors- cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, agility, balance, reaction time, power, coordination, and speed- are all related to what we can GAIN rather than what we are trying to lose. Changing your fitness focus from LOSING to GAINING can be a powerful way to transform your mindset from shame to confidence, pride, and love. 🔥💪🎉❤️⠀ ⠀ #stopshame #elevatingstandards #growthmentality #gains #wholehealth #mentalhealth #certifiedpersonaltrainer #cpt
•the great reward• Bullshit gurus will have you believe that there is some great reward at end of some superficial journey. Abundance awaits, the life of your dreams is just around the corner...or some other ridiculous platitude. - Happiness, freedom, and all other virtues can be and should be had right now. I surmise that the first step is believing in the great power that sits within us, that for whatever reason has laid dormant because of various messages from broader society that tells us otherwise. - Our natural instincts or inner nature is pure, trust it, follow it, and thrive. It's only unnatural when we don't follow it. Oh and don't be an asshole... universal truth👍🏽. ____________________________________________________ Double Erg Day+Pushups ⛷️x2 Both by @garageathlete - A.M.

•inner nature• Stay Hard 🔥🔥🔥 --------------------------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ I wasn’t born this motherfucker! In my upcoming book, Can’t Hurt Me, I go to confession with myself. We love talking about the things we are good at. Very few talk about the real shit that fucks with us- the stuff we hide from everyone. We try to mask it by lifting weights, making more money, buying more possessions, etc. It’s there in the insecurities, fear, lies and self-doubt that we find our real self. There and only there do you grow. Don’t be afraid of people judging you- fuck them! A lot of people can’t handle the truth about themselves, trust me, I know. I struggled with that for many years. Own your shit! Those people you are trying to impress have just as many issues as you do, they just hide it better than you do. Stop trying to impress others!

•big goals vs. north stars• Sometimes our goals can be a vice. We become so focused on a specific target that we might not listen to that internal voice that lets us know when we should or should not shift courses. That voice is usually correct. So instead of goals why not North Stars? - Goals seem to be finite, achieve one goal, experience temporary happiness, then search for the next goal. North Stars are ever shifting guide posts, in essence once you reach a certain milestone (small goals), enthusiasm doesn't subside as actions are always driven by a broader purpose. The focus is 100% on the process not the destination. - Also fear... sometimes the fear of not reaching a goal prevents one from moving at all. This isn't an argument against big ambitious dreams, it's more of a thought on how to keep progressing without fear or worry. - Thousand Mile Journey starts with one step, North Stars Ensure that you keep walking. ____________________________________________________ Double Erg Day ⛷️ 🚣🏽‍♂️ - A.M.

•case of the mondays• Stay Hard 🔥🔥🔥 --------------------------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ Use people’s comfort as your strength! Why workout at 3am? Because no one else is. In life you are constantly looking for an edge. You have to find it when and where no one else is looking. It’s not about the running, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, those are all just tools to strengthen your mindset. A hard mindset isn’t formed while sitting on the couch, wishing you had the discipline to do more. It is those early morning wake-up calls and workouts that suck the most that you will draw strength from and find more when you need it most. If you think I want to get up at 3 o’clock in the fucking morning and do anything, let alone run, you are sadly mistaken. I just know that this day and many other days like this one that will come back to help me in life. As you see, I didn’t say that it will help me in a race rather life. Don’t be the person who needs a race or an event in front of them to train! Be the person that is constantly training so they are in shape, mentally and physically, just in case a race comes up or life just happens. --------------------------------- #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix @concept2inc ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #americanninjawarrior #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning

This world is full of distractions- a lot of them are from other people, social media, some are self-imposed. In a world full of distractions, you must learn to live in it undistracted, unphased. Never let the weakness of this world infiltrate your mind! To do that you must truly know yourself! Don't allow people to puppet master you from being fucking great! --------------------------------- #Lifestyle #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix @concept2inc ____________________________________________________ #PhotoofTheDay #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #americanninjawarrior #gymrat #selfie #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #powerlifting #health #healthy #train #conditioning
•useful tools• Tools are great, but self-mastery along with work toward mastering of the tool is the aim. Regarding fitness "tools", the SkiErg by @concept2inc for me has been possibly the best single piece of equipment that's helped along that journey. - More importantly, the steady guidance and programming by @garageathlete (Justin) forces me to properly learn the tool, and at times or rather most of the time, kicks my ass. Though there's a method to the madness. - Simply speaking, what you get out of this machine is 100% based on your efforts on the machine and there aren't many correlations like that with regard to tools or in broader life. There's no free lunch and it's absolutely fair. - In all I'm grateful for this machine and grateful to be able to do the work. Further continuing to, as Justin says, "Build The Engine".👍🏽 ____________________________________________________ Double Erg Day ⛷️ All By @garageathlete - A.M. 5 Rounds 400m/Rest 2min/200m/Rest 2min Rate fast Pace: fast - P.M.
