Conditioning in Colorado is Tricky

Ha, I forgot how difficult the first conditioning workouts are when I visit Denver. The mile high factor kicks my butt until I remember to knock back the intensity by 10%.

Did a little conditioning circuit yesterday of sprints, rowing machine, and kettlebell swings. Today was an off-day, and tomorrow it is back to the Denver Athletic Club to hit another TT Aggressive S&M workout (Strength and Metabolic). Squats, bench, and snatch-grip deadlifts are on the docket.

Details tomorrow.

Until then, here's your chance to win a copy of my brand new TT 2.0 program.

Oh, and yesterday I had a wild "Paleo Cereal" bowl. It was amazing.

- 1 ripe banana (sliced)
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 oz pecans
- 1-2 tablespoons shredded, no sugar added coconut
- mixed that up and then poured in: 2 scoops "ancient cacao" flavor Paleo Protein Powder (from True Nutrition) in 10 oz water

Try'll be surprised!

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
No matter what you were told as a child, no matter what your background, your nature (genetics) or nurture (upbringing), what really matters is what you want to accomplish, what actions you take, and what opportunities you seek out.

Don't let 'fake' mental walls you've built up in your mind block you from achieving your goals. You put them up, so you must knock them down.

We reside in our comfort zones because we let our little limitations & laziness block our BIG SELF from shining through. Find the reason inside of you that makes you really want to change. The only motivation that works is internal motivation. What’s stopping you? Don’t let it be your excuses. Dedicate yourself to change. Dedicate yourself to success. Dedicate yourself to action.

Start knocking,
