You've got two choices when confronted by obstacles: run or stand your ground. You're going to hear drivel from people about how you don't have what it takes and you're not going anywhere. Are you going to fall victim to their false prophecies or are you going to look those motherfuckers in the eye and tell them that you're going to show them exactly what you're capable of doing? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#AnimalPak #FightOrFlight #StandYourGround #ShowThem #Bodybuilding #Powerlifting #Weightlifting #Inspiration #Motivation

My rock. My better half. You could insert any sweet description here and it would fit. I only make it through this crazy schedule, crazy life because I have her...

It’s late & I’m adrift, lulled by the rhythm of my work. Then all at once it hits me, a beacon in the night. In the middle of my rep, that old feeling returns. The pain, it washes over me, wave after wave. My senses reel. I could drop it all, just walk away. Instead, I grit my teeth, catch my breath, & plow forward. When times get tough, most head for safe harbor. Me, I welcome the pain… It keeps me honest. It anchors me. Brothers, this sea is wide & rough. Though the pain may come over you, never let it overcome you.

If you truly know me at all, you know that (at times) I still struggle with low self esteem from when I was heavier. It’s just a mental thing I battle with still. So in no way am I a “show off”. Am I proud of what I’ve accomplished? Hell yes! Do I think I’m better than the next person? Not at all. I am only better than I was yesterday - which is all I am truly concerned with.

I post a lot of the pictures that I do in hopes that it might motivate even just ONE person. I want one day for someone to approach me and say, “because of you, I changed my life for the better.” THAT is a life well lived.

Every day, I’d stop & stare… I could watch for hours. As a boy, nothing but thin glass separated me from the men who trained on the other side–that glass might as well have been a desert. Looking back, if I could see my young face, I’d see fear mingled with desire. I’d see a boy who had something to prove & wanted the world to know it. Today, I know two things. First, the only person you have anything to prove is yourself. Second, you can watch life with your nose pressed to the glass… Or you can swing the door wide open & step inside.

This is some pretty great perspective. Doesn’t matter if you do #bodybuilding or #powerlifting, eating is a full time job. ・・・

Food prep is such an important part of bodybuilding. I cook for 3 days at a time. It is the only way I can assure my success. I say it all the time: fail to plan ➡️plan to fail! The last pic is my first meal of the day ❤️ maybe my most favorite.

🚨Update🚨

This week was a trying week for@both of us. New schedule for me, her energy level was down a bit, we didn’t get as much cardio in as the week before and she missed a few meals.  LIFE HAPPENED! That said, @bethrn0829 continued to kill it. The scale said she’s down another pound but, as always, the scale isn’t doing her any justice (total weight loss is 9.4lbs). If you’ve seen her in person, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about!  Still hasn’t touched a single Big Red in 4 weeks and is 11 days smoke free! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Starting to get back to that old size. My first goal was to get back to that size (and then beat it). Still have some work to do to get there but I am definitely well on my way 💪🏽

Where do you see yourself in a year? What are the possibilities? It doesn’t even have to be fitness related. Set a bar that challenges and pushes you out of your comfort zone.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
One you establish those goals, it’s highly important you consider those around you. Will they help you achieve those goals or will they hold you back? The people around you are invaluable to your success.

I’m blessed. I have a great core of people around me. It has taken me some time to get here but I’ve got exactly who I need around me to get where I am going. The amount of encouraging texts, DM’s and personal interactions I have with these people in a weekly basis is all the support I need.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I want to close by sharing a quick example: today I was exhausted. My work schedule has been insane. Shortly after getting to the gym, I get a text that says, “how’s your energy level?” My answer? “Shit” the response I got in turn was amazing: “I’m sorry, babe. Dig Deep.” THAT is the kind of support you need around you!

We are all born naked & weak but free. We must eventually submit to laws. Some liberate us – others we must challenge for our freedom. The laws of conformity & small-mindedness? They are chains that restrain us, so subtle that we forget they exist. Like a dog tied to a stake, we become docile. Though these chains will bury themselves into my flesh, I will pull hard, resist. Life is short. In the time I have, I will sign the contract that binds me to this life in blood. I will fight.

Another rep, another nail. Another set, another shingle. This weight, another load of bricks... In here, an honest day’s work means an honest day’s pay. Yeah, many question whether bodybuilding is a sport or not. Shit, that’s beside the point. To me, bodybuilding isn’t only about competing, and it doesn’t end with stepping on a stage. Bodybuilding is living. It’s a laborious process of building, of becoming–a constant effort to better yourself… Not just this day or another day. But every single day.

Be focused.
Be the most disciplined.
Stay consistent.
Don’t allow distractions to keep you from your goals.
Raise your standards.
Be the standard.
