  • Day 8: Embracing Warriorship

    I got the core stuff done yesterday (again, this is the next day), which is always nice. Thinking about how much difficulty I’ve been having with getting through things – I’m thinking I’ve been relying too much on willpower and I’ve generally got so much crap going on anyway that I don’t have much left.…

  • Day 1: Embracing Warriorship

    I got up and got my son ready to go to the babysitter and then I headed for the gym and got a full weight session in. Squats 135×5 205×5 240×5 240×5 240×5 Bench 135×5 185×5 210×5 210×5 210×5 Deadlift 135×5 225×5 285×5 Making sure I get a full 2 min between sets helps massively.…

  • Day 5: Embracing Warriorship

    Wow, this 30 days is proving to be a lot harder ramp up than I thought. But I’m still doing what I can – while still being a good father, husband, and employee. These practices are meant to improve my life overall not take it over. I did get most of my list done yesterday,…
