Part 2: Leg Day Preparations and a Killer Leg Program

LEG DAY PREPARATIONS MATTER!  Leg workouts have very important pre-game preparations. Nobody should ever outwork you. If you ever get beat, it better only be by somebody purely more talented. I won’t even consider a leg day unless I am geared up for battle and firing on all cylinders. If you aren’t, I would train something else or take a rest day and get after it next day. It’s that important.    Mental and physical preparations:   7 hours sleep minimum, night prior Carbohydrate meal at last meal of night prior and day of At least 2 meals minimum next day prior to legs (I train mornings) Hot bath (if time allows) to loosen up hips and back and knees...

Part 1: Why Leg Day Matters.....To Your Life!

"Find what you love and let it kill you.” – Bukowski   My Leg Day is commonly known as Tuesday by mere mortals. It’s the day I love. Also the day I hate. My hardest working day of the week. My brain refuses to let me cut corners. I only know 2 speeds; 0 mph and 100 mph, meaning I either do it 100% or I don’t do it at all. So I know it’ll be a brain versus my body kind of day. I will always strive to outwork my current capacity. I refuse to be beaten. It doesn’t matter who is watching, or if I am training alone. I will always break myself in the process. I will...

Don't Feed the Trolls

The Grind Athletics stands for a culture of hard work. Of paying your dues. We don't believe in shortcuts. We don't believe in the easy way. Hell, if it was easy, most've us wouldn't even be interested in acquiring it. Hard work works. Period. We find as much reward in the process as in the prize. We embrace the pain, discipline and sacrifice because we know it is building us into even bigger mental and physical beasts. Every damn day we grind; alone, in the dark, no matter who is watching. Time is all we need. We are internally driven and internally disciplined. You might not be a millionaire...yet. You might not have your dream physique...yet. You might not be...

SHAKING HANDS, MANNERS, BEING TRUE TO YOUR WORD AND A FEW NECESSARY PUNCHES TO THE FACE!

Every day, I get a little more and more disappointed and disenchanted by today's society in general. It seems that manners, ethics, morals, values, integrity, honesty and being a decent fucking human being are slowly dying. I consider myself an individual. My own man. Unique. I don’t fit into any certain mold or genre and don’t want to. But I will never negate the core values of the good ol’ fashioned days and the good ol’ fashioned ways.  The world I come from is a world where you stand up to shake a man or woman’s hand, look them in the eye and have proper and courteous introductions. I will never forget a very significant emotional experience I personally had...

Does the Fire Still Burn?

It's time for an internal "check up from the neck up!"HONEST QUESTION:Are you TRAINING or are you WORKING OUT? Does the raging fire and burning aspirations that once got you started still exist? Or are you content and just going through the motions?We've all seen it time and time again, that guy or girl in the gym that's at the gym day after day, week after week, month after month and never physically changes. I want to remind you all of the definition of INSANITY:"Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome." -Albert Einstein.We all got started in the gym for different reasons. Pain. Pleasure. Self esteem. Health. Endless reasons.....Sooner or later, that raging fire gets...
