Fitness Myths and Meathead Training in Croatia

What a gorgeous morning in Croatia. The sun is up over Split, and the beaches are starting to fill up at 8am. Men are swimming laps, women are sunning themselves, and children are running around. It's a worth the travel to enjoy a traditional Euro holiday.

Of course, I'm not interested in spending a full day at the beach. An hour or so in the water and in the sun is good for me.

Today I head back inland, to Frankfurt. I'll walk around that town as well, adding it to my checklist of cities "walked".

Quick workout today that gave me some ideas for the upcoming TT GrindhouseX:
1) 20-10 pushups
2A) Pulldowns
2B) Chest press
3B) Shoulder press

Then down to the beach for a walk and swim.

Short workouts are great though, of course, for getting lean and fit. Most folks think you need long, slow cardio for fat loss, but you don't.

There's no other industry that has as many half-truths and falsehoods as the fitness industry. Here are the TOP 5

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Those who BELIEVE they will succeed, come heck or high water, are the ones who do succeed.

Create your vision and stick to it.

Time to hit the road,

PS - Slow down.

Take 3 deep breaths right now. In through your nose and into your belly, then slowly out through your mouth. Chill. Calm down. Focus on those breaths. Now pick back up with your work.
