He Choked Me!

You may have heard that the other week I entered my first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition

(or you may have not becuase I was shitting myself so I hardly told anyone haha)

Anyway I was in the ‘big boy’ division, 5 guys around 100kg with the plan to choke each other OR tear each other arms off <— That was my plan

Going into this is a scary thing

I was nervous but at the same time I new that by doing it I would grow as a man

I new that being uncomfortable and being exposed on where my weaknesses are I would be able to improve moving forwards…

I ended up winning 2 fights by attacking there shoulder joint and I lost 2 fight because they choked the hell out of me

I place 3rd for the day which I actually didn’t care about, what I did care about was how I got choked and how I didn’t even know one of them was coming

Since that day I have been clearer than ever on where I am at and what I need to work on and I even feel it has helped me feel at peace because I did what I was scared of…

Now, I am not suggesting for you to go and get in a fight but something I want you to consider for the day is the simple fact that if you try something new and fail, is it really a failure?

We will never grow in our comfort zone yet we sometimes fight to stay within it.

I know that when I venture out I may lose BUT there is so much more to learn from the experience…

Apply this across every aspect of your life and see what pops up that you NEED to start going after

 

You create your world, make it yours and if you fail…

JUST TRY AGAIN with your new outlook on the situation.

 

Anyway, that’s all I have for you today

Why Strongman? – Guest Post By Charlton Butt

I’ll start with why I started, and the obvious, should you ever attend a competition; it’s fucking fun!!

Chaz and Mamont

Biased yes, but strongman training is the most fun way to get strong and turn into an animal!

Believe me. I think the thought of doing strongman for a ‘purpose’ never crossed my mind, I saw logs, tyres and farmers carries and just thought “OATH! Let me get in on that”.

Little did I realise the benefits it would give not only to my body, but more importantly my mind.

No matter what sport you’re in, “strength is never a weakness, weakness is never a strength” – Mark Bell. Continue reading “Why Strongman? – Guest Post By Charlton Butt”

The Few Tweaks To Get MASSIVE Gains

What is holding you back?

I see it all the time and it kills me inside

Whether it is not being able to lockout a deadlift due to not wanting to perfect form and build the back strength up or hearing a fully grown man say no to training because he can’t afford the training fees at Royale Fitness (which is less than the slab of beer that he is trying to cut back on anyway)

Fat Football man
Priotity Needs To Be In Health and Success, Not Beer and Cars Or Football

What I am talking about is people who avoid their weak areas and who are pulling the blindfold over their eyes when it comes to the things that they don’t enjoy and aren’t that good at.

Let’s break this down so that you haven some context

STRENGTH
The strength goals that you have will get capped out by whatever your weakest muscle that contributes to that lift is…

Be Selfish, It Is Good For Everybody.

This game of life can be a busy one

 

You always having to hustle your face off to keep your wife or girlfriend happy, your family happy, your clients happy and even the bloody tax man happy

 

So much shit to get done and so little time.

 

The first thing that I have done in the past and see ALL the time with the people inside my businesses is we cut out the things that make us great

 

We skip a few training sessions to catch up on a project

 

We skip out on meditation or floating because we ‘just don’t have the time’

 

We eat like shit

 

We even stop appreciating the ones we love

 

We literally stop growing as a person.

 

This NEEDS TO STOP

 

MY REVELATION in 2012

  • If I am not being or becoming the best version of myself, then my wife, my family, my clients and even the outsiders who just like to follow my stuff ALL SUFFER

 

I had this realization and since then I have studied, sought out, tested, created and built a series of daily and weekly non-negotiables that I will make sure are a part of my schedule

 

Here is the list below in no particular order Continue reading “Be Selfish, It Is Good For Everybody.”

6 Steps to become an ELITE S&C Coach

Let’s face it.

There are a heap of sub-par personal trainers or ‘S&C’ coaches out there in this beautiful fitness industry.

I have been blessed that I have been able to learn off and get around great coaches on a very regular basis (this isn’t cheap with both; my time or my money but it is 100% worth it).

I want to help the great coaches in this industry grow and stamp out the bullshit so that it gives us ALL a better reputation and more credibility. Continue reading “6 Steps to become an ELITE S&C Coach”

The Slap In The Face That I Needed

Today I had a bit of a mental breakthrough
It felt like a slap in the face but it hurt so good…
One of my mentors pointed out to me that just because something is done, doesn’t mean that it will serve me or move me forwards
So I have  followed the systems which I was taught at a week long event called Ressurection Week which I attended in July 2015, I have hardly missed a day in the game that we call Core 4 in the last year and a half.
These systems that I use each day have seriously changed my life and at the same time sped up my quality of life and the amount I can produce in all areas at any given time.
