•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.

•monday mind games• Stay Hard 🔥🔥🔥 --------------------------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ I always wondered why people hate Mondays. If you are constantly grinding and getting after it, Monday should be looked at as just another fucking day! The problem is the mind starts to play tricks on us, making us not look forward to the week ahead. Our minds have the tactical advantage over us at all times. It’s the only thing in the world that is on time, every time. The mind starts playing tricks on us at times when we need it most. Have you ever found yourself in the middle of one of the most important things of your life and your mind just quit on you? Your mind always knows where you are hiding, your fears and insecurities and it strikes hardest when you are at your lowest point. Your mind can be your biggest enemy if you haven’t mastered it! Like the saying goes, keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Most of us know all of this. There is nothing I have ever said that is earth-shattering shit! Since most of us know what I am saying is true, my question is this: Why do you stop working out? Why do you give up on school? Why do you quit when things get hard? Why do you allow insecure people to judge you? I just want to know why we continue to fail when we have all the questions to the fucking test ahead of time. We know our mind is simply fucking with us. It wants to lull you back to your comfort zone! Why do you still allow it to win? Like a child has to ask a parent for permission to do certain things, train your mind to the point where it has to be granted permission! --------------------------------- #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

•greatness• Some say greatness is a choice... bullshit. - Greatness is simply a bi-product or result of relentless, obsessive action toward a specific aim in life. - It usually requires among other things, a significant amount of discomfort, enormous effort, and borderline super human focus. And even then we might fall short. - So in this instance whatever we define as 'greatness' is indeed not choice. The choice is waking up daily, fully self-accountable and committed, absolutely willing to do what needs to be done. - In other words, greatness is forgotten because you're too busy getting the fuck after it 👍🏽. ____________________________________________________ Double Erg Day ⛷️ 🚣🏽‍♂️ All By @garageathlete - A.M. 8 Rounds Ski ⛷️ 300m/3min rest Rate fast Pace: fast - P.M.

•mediocrity as an addiction• Stay Hard🔥🔥🔥 ---------------- #Repost @davidgoggins (@get_repost ) ・・・ If you are always comparing yourself to mediocre people, that's exactly what you will be! A lot of people think that they are at the top of their game because they are the best amongst a group of people who don't even give a fuck. Mediocrity feels so fucking good! If you wake up and don't want to workout, all you have to say is “fuck it, I don't give a shit!” And if you're mediocre, you are probably hanging around other mediocre people, so they are happy that you don't add pressure to their life! One big happy soft ass family!!! People don't like hanging around that motherfucker who makes them feel uncomfortable or like an underachiever on a regular basis! We stay away from the fucking savage who wakes up at 0330 regardless the weather, if they got a good night’s sleep, if their life sucks and times are hard. People stay clear of that cat! Those kind of people make you question yourself. They also let you know where your life ends and their life begins! Don't hang around with people who say “it's ok you deserve a day off.” Hang around people who make you uncomfortable because they are on a quest to find more. Comfort is a fucking drug!!! Once you get used to it, it becomes fucking addictive. --------------------------------- #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

#DETOX_marvaoganyan Day 4 ———— Today my body feels good. Although my mental body is a little bit irritated by small things. I am not usually like that. I know its the toxins that affect my brain and release certain hormones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I am trying to keep my mental state very balanced, and not letting emotions to take over and be in control. I’ve been working on myself since 2009. And its been the most pleasurable work I’ve ever done ! Learning and improving constantly👁 I am floating I am observing My WORLD is taking care of me I am taking care of my WORLD Pleasant magic ———————— It’s critical to notice mood change, find the source of it, acknowledge, understand WHY ... and LET GO. As easy it is sound - you still can do it. Easily ! @iam_yourcoach
•grinding?• #tbt .Last lifting competition - Recorded a phenomenal podcast episode with my great friend @thenatechambers (coming soon), and while hanging out with him and @conwaybunga , we talked about the notion of “training” and how many view this process as fighting and overcoming – “THE GRIND” vs. one of growth and development. We agreed to remove the word “Grind” from our vocabularies as it relates to physical exercise. - If it’s a “grind” there’s no reason to do it, pain and suffering in the typical sense is masochism as it relates to activities that we mindfully choose to embark in. Growing is better than grinding. - Looking back at this picture, the number on the bar meant so much to me, now the process means even more. - #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
•true simplicity pt.2• Socrates warns us to "beware the barrenness of a busy life". A life that leaves us always reaching for things just outside of our grasp when everything that's needed is with us exactly now. - Living simply isn't just the removal of things, it's the removal of fear, craving, attachment, most of all self doubt...because it places our self-worth exactly where it belongs, in our own hands and not some external source. - Nature doesn't hurry, yet everything gets done, how are we any different. - #BlueprintPhoenix #ElevatingStandards ___________________________________ #optoutside #lifestyle #inspire #vscogood #instafollow #gymrat #transformation #muscles #abs #crossfit #fitness #lifting #training #cardio #gym #strong #instafit #Instagood #ocr #spartanrace #health #healthy #train #hike #rei1440project #forest #philosophy #lake
•true simplicity• I read that if you want to add knowledge then perhaps you should add things constantly, however true wisdom comes from the removal of things. - The purest Beauty, Wisdom, and Knowledge coming from the mindful practice of simplicity.

•Challenges• It's interesting that one thinks about challenges as fighting and overcoming.

In today's society, we always talk about authenticity and the need to develop one's own voice. By passively being lead by crafty "teachers", we simply become walking microphones for other's ideas and values. - Values lead to the development of that voice and the genesis of those values start with the acknowledgment and resposibility taken for our own inner nature. We really do know how to craft our own lives, though we must accept that this is a task for which we are the sole person able to complete it. - Episode 13 of The Blueprint Chronicles: Part 2 of 'Insta-Gurus' and Other Musings with Dawn Genie (@dgnfitness ) on Personal Responsibility , is live. - 3 of 3 ____________________________________________________ SUBSCRIBE and SHARE, I appreciate any feedback you have for me, again, thank you!!! - Link to iTunes in the bio or head over to the website www.theblueprintchronicles.com - Available on: @Itunes @StitcherPodcasts @GooglePlayMusic @Spotify @iHeartRadio - #Mindfulness #Lifestyle   #ElevatingStandards #Philosophy @BlueprintPhoenix ____________________________________________________ #Podcast  #inspire  #vscogood  #instafollow  #americanninjawarrior  #gymrat  #selfie #transformation  #muscles  #abs  #crossfit  #fitness  #lifting  #training  #cardio  #gym #strong  #instafit  #Instagood  #ocr  #spartanrace  #powerlifting  #health  #healthy  #train  #sunset

"As each situation in life represents a challenge to man and presents a problem for him to solve, the question of the meaning of life may actually be reversed. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.” |Viktor E.

We all have the capability of being our own soul's doctor, though at times outside parties can help us recalibrate our internal compass. The problem is when that "help" only wants to recalibrate your bank account...lower not higher. - And the very source of help has unknowingly lead us to paradoxical despair.

•P E R S P E C T I V E• None of these workouts “feel good”, they can be and are often physically painful. However it’s a blessing to feel that pain and I’m personally grateful for the ability to endure that pain. - This isn’t some psychological game to improve performance. The reality is, if you are physically able to endure the work and participate….activities that you thoughtfully choose, then it’s indeed a wonderful day…in other words, shit can ALWAYS be worse! - Tough workouts or tough situations in life are usually temporary, not having proper perspective can cause lasting mental anguish👍🏽. ____________________________________________________ A.M.
