Mornings Are The Secret

Mornings, The Secret to Managing Your Schedule.

I am a morning person. I am also constantly on the hunt to maximize/manage my time better. So when I came across the book ‘What Successful People Do in the Morning’ I figured it would be the perfect read.

Turns out, it was a GREAT read. Here is a quick synopsis for you:

Mornings are the key to taking ahold of your schedule. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that allow us to live happier/more productive lives. Read More

The only exception to this article is if you’re peaking for a competition.

When you’re training daily in the gym, there’s no doubt that some days will be better than others both physically and mentally. It’s important to have a plan going into each workout – but some days you need to say “F*CK THE PLAN”, and throw some weight on the bar.

I see it far too often. People come into the gym, they slept great, ate well, feel good, and the bar is moving fast – yet they decide to “stick to the plan” and leave either pounds, or reps, or BOTH in the gym.

This post is short – as I feel it can be said in just a few paragraphs.

There seems to be more and more lifters in gyms wrapping up these days – and using wrist wraps in the WRONG way.
