Hello and welcome everyone...success in life, in anything, will be a
moving target if we are unable to conquer our fear...conquer ourselves. We don't do things that we don't think we can do or that
are hard for us to do. We become "slackers." Let's apply this to our
workouts/training. Visualize yourself starting and finishing your
workout before you actually workout...not just once, but several
times each day. You want mental toughness, do that exercise. At
times, I even become angry with myself before and during my
workouts. Reaching my goals is a must for me. I do not believe in
status quo. We either progress or regress.  Once a month, at least,
do things in your workout that you don't like to do. Exercises you
know will help you, but make you feel uncomfortable. Get out of
your comfort zone. THINK through your workout before the
workout. You win when you conquer yourself...your fear.

Hello and welcome everyone...week in review and something extra.
Thursday, delivered a motivational speech for a library fund raiser.
Library is trying to build a new facility. Great audience! Friday was
"kick off" day for playing vs high schools. Seniors vs students. Wow! This marks the 4th year for this program. Ten courts, all
going at the same time for doubles action. Bringing two generations
coming together. These young men and women bring respect, courtesy and game. Each month, we will be playing at least two
high  schools.
Something extra...all of us look for an "edge" in our training and
competitive events. Most look to supplements..."juice." And it
appears that the "edge," how to attain, changes. It's a moving
target. My edge is attained by developing a mental toughness and
having a passion for training and competing. Those two things
separate winners and losers. First to the Finish Line...where winners and survivors always meet. Will I see you there?

Hello and welcome everyone...balance as in muscle balance is key for everyone. Start with any sport, any exercise and then fast forward to surf how valuable balance is in
one's life. Incorporate plyo and iso in your workouts. Plyometrics
is a fundamental in my workouts. Add sprinting up hill and stairs. Go to a football field, run the stairs. Try to run or hop on one leg as
much as possible. Do this workout 3 times a week. Results...amazing! You will add speed and fast twitch, conditioning
and endurance.

Hello and welcome everyone...thanks to my followers and the
questions and comments. Many of you are visiting my website, . Let's start with fueling our body
the natural way. For increased blood flow...ginger, celery (also good for lowering blood pressure), chile peppers, garlic, lavender,
figs, beans/lentil, organic chocolate, zinc and oysters and watermelon. For energy...eggs, walnuts, almonds, pecans, chia seeds, hemp, flax, steele cut oatmeal. Add deep breathing exercises. Clean out that toxic oxygen. Keep your preworkout meal
the same. "Game day/event day" meal should be the same as any
other day. And your "mental meal," preworkout, three minutes at
least, of meditation. Think through your workout and what you want to accomplish. Change the time of day you work out, once in
awhile. What's the time of day your event takes place? How does your body react and adjust? Mentally adjust?
