Welcome everyone....ALARM. That word is responsible for what
ever measure of success I have had in my training and competing in
sports. Yes the alarm clock has been my ally for my whole life. I
tried to analyze what outer motivation was driving me. Not always
did I enjoy hearing that alarm sound. Each night I would place the
alarm clock five feet away from my bed. I had to get out of bed to
shut it off. The alarm forced me to get started. Even in my business
as owner and CEO. There are times in life when the very simple
things pay off big. Many people complicate and clutter their lives...
keep it simple and direct. Don't mistake activity for accomplishment. When men and women ask me what's my secret,
and I respond with "alarm clock" they have that puzzled look. I
just smile and walk away. Perhaps that alarm will drive you to

Hello and welcome is time. Time to measure you.
Most things in life are measured by time and distance. Then there
is the relationship thing I refer to connections. My question to you,
"what is your relationship to yourself?" "Do you trust yourself or do you bail out?" There are tons of fitness and health programs out
there. A few are good, most are bad. Just check your wallet and you
will agree with me. It's a Billion dollar a year business. You and I
have thrown out "half used" products. Yes, all of us have been
caught up in the "presto" mind set. You and I need to go through
the school of Hard Knox, Throw out all those imposters. It is time
to start over. My father used to tell me, " whenever you tell a story,
always start at the beginning." Begin with this...see what you can do on your own. No supplements and no purchased video. This
is on you. Do what you feel you need and you will be right. I
did this quite some time ago and the results were great. We all
look for an edge. The school of hard knox will serve you well.

Have a great life everyone...Jimmy O

Hello and welcome response to your requests, today I
will address "hard abs." Without sit ups and crunches! Here we go.
Hold a 20, 30, 40, 50 lb weight in both hands in front of you with
elbows slightly bent. Tighten stomach muscles and walk 10m.
Hold the weight waist high. Do three sets. Then do three sets holding weights shoulder high. You must keep stomach muscles
tightened. Next, do three more sets moving weights up and down
waist high to shoulder high. Yes, you will be giving your forearms
and shoulders a workout also. Next, walk up a stairs while holding
weight in front of you and repeat what you did on flat ground. Next, sit on floor with hands at your sides and starting at your knees, lean back to about 90 degrees and hold for count of 20 or
30 sec. Do three sets. Next, using an overhead bar that is stationary,
with  straps around your ankles, hanging by your ankles, come up
and reach over your toes and hold for count of 20 sec. Do five sets.
Next, do kangaroo hops. No weights. Hop for 10m. Three sets. As
you hop, the higher you raise your arms, with elbows bent, the
better your results. Remember, keep stomach muscles tightened
as long as you can. There you have it...hard abs.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

Hello and welcome everyone...the "dog days" are here. Seasons
change 4 times a year. This change affects most of us...we tend to
feel down and lack that snap. Now is the time to call upon our mental toughness that we have worked on all year. Go back to the
basics of your training...the fundamentals. Concentrate on your
foundation. Time to incorporate something new. For me, some long
distance running for the next 30 days. Am writing out my program
for the next 90 days. Setting new goals, raising the bar and visualizing myself already being there. Give yourself a pep talk and
look into the mirror. What do you see?! Who do you see?! See you
at the finish line!
