Denver to Toronto to Nutrition to Training

Yesterday's workout was in Denver was a nice deadlift session at the Denver Athletic Club. Great gym. Right downtown. Two squat racks, a deadlift platform, and even some chalk. Plus, lots of TRX's, a mobility area, and tons and tons and tons of interval equipment (read: cardio machines).

After the workout I met up with Jeff from and we had a conference call with Isabel. So proud of them for all the people they are helping. Isabel will be a household name one day, and on TV shows soon. She's fantastic and really cares about changing your nutrition for the better.

And then it was on to the airport for a smooth trip home. I read the recent Men's Journal magazine, and it featured an article on our long-time friend, Brad Pilon. Congrats to Brad for having his Eat-Stop-Eat method mentioned as the standard Intermittent Fasting guide. Here's another expert that has a proven nutrition program (many TT Transformation Contest winners have used it to win their categories).

It really is a good life when you are connected to so many great people.

Now...Lots of workout resources for you:

On pg. 58 of the October 2012, Men's Health magazine, you'll find my "1 pair of dumbbells only" workout. It's called "Fast Lane to Fitness". If anyone can find a link to the article online, please post it here. It's uses one set of dumbbells (the same weight) for all exercises in the workout.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
I believe that most people sell themselves short. Even I do it to myself. There are few people in the world that are doing all they are capable of doing. So here's what you need to do. Dedicate yourself to getting better every day. This is a lifelong project. Keep going. Keep adding value. Keep learning. Keep connecting with other good people. The breakthroughs will come. Stay strong.

"Cherish time, your most valuable resource. You can never make up the time you lose. It's the most important value for any productive happy individual and is the only limitation to all accomplishment. To waste time is to waste your life. The most important choices you'll ever make are how you use your time." – Kekich Credo #2

Put a little urgency in your life

And today's tip:
"Get your idea out there as fast as possible even if it's not quite ready by setting must hit deadlines. Let the market tell you if you have a winner or not. If no – move on and fail forward fast! If it's got potential – then make it better." – Yanik Silver, Maverick business rule #10
