Devastating Leg Workout and Giveaway

Today I gave myself an attitude adjustment.

You see, I get a lot of Travel Anxiety.

On Tuesday I was already getting stressed out from this Sunday's flight to Denver and next Tuesday's flight to Miami.

It's not the flying that bothers me, it's the entire litany of events from staying at a hotel the night before (because it's an early flight and I live almost 2 hours from the airport) to the shuttle train ride to the terminal to the line up for security to the slowest elevator in the world that takes me to the lounge to the lining up to board the plane, etc.

All of this feeds my anxiety.

And I've been letting it bother me, suck my mental energy (that I need for more important work projects), and straight-up give me a tight chest from the anxiety and sloppy breathing patterns that go with it.


No more.

I've switched my attitude from dread to Adventure. All of the hassles above can be seen as adventures in life, as beautiful gifts to be enjoyed with awe and wonder.

A hotel right beside the airport? Awesome!
A train that takes you from hotel to terminal? Cool!
An elevator so I don't have to climb stairs like a sucker? Right on!

So treat yourself to the same gift today... attitude adjustment in whatever area of life you need.

And that was AFTER I treated myself to this quad-devastating workout:

1A) Wall Squat Hold
1B) RKC Plank

2A) Double KB Front Squat - 53lbs kb's x 3 x 10
2B) DB RDL with 5s ECC

3) DB Walking Lunge - 40 pound dumbbells x 40 reps


That's the price you pay when you wuss out and don't go to the gym to use the squat rack. I had to pay the piper in the garage. Piper paid!

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Pick a pupil to coach. Be the mentor you wished you had at their age. Care for and nurture their personal and professional development. Teach them, encourage them, correct them, and connect them. Be grateful for this opportunity to pass on the secrets to success in life.
