Words of Motivation!

20131122-120007.jpg

This world is a tough place to exist! We all have goals, desires, and a purpose. The problem is finding out what each of those are. Lately, I’ve been writing and talking a lot about each. Here are a few common themes:

1. Dream Big!
2. Plan Bigger!
3. Have specific goals!
4. If you don’t believe that something can happen, it won’t.
5. Don’t let people tell you that you can’t do something!
6. Live for something greater than yourself!
7. Don’t be afraid of calculated risk!
8. Act on your good ideas, or someone else will!
9. Don’t be afraid to meet others! Networking is the key!
10. “Do all as Unto The Lord”

Here is an article that I wrote for Juggernaut Training Systems explaining some “BlackSheep Wisdom”:

You see videos of them all the time anyway. Here is the video:

We are a little more specific to the Olympic lifts this week. The volume is high this week. Yesterday kicked all of our butts, but I believe that I have an advantage over other coaches. I am in the trenches with my athletes. It’s harder, but it really earns their respect more.

I’m on my way to the Attitude Nation for Weightlifting Talk on Spreaker.com(that’s a plug). Then I get to watch MashMafia OG Amy Steller play collegiate basketball at Pfeiffer University. There’s nothing I’d rather do than watch my athletes do their thing.

2013 has been a great year for Mash Elite Performance. We have experienced growth in so many areas of our business, and I am very thankful for God being so gracious to us. My prayer is that we might glorify Him within our business in our actions and the way we treat our MashElite Family. Here is a list of some of the other things that I am thankful for:

1. Weightlifting Talk on Spreaker.com and everything that comes with it. My friend Jon North brought me into the Attitude Nation Family in February. Now I feel like I have an extended family of thousands of people that listen and support our podcast. We are Family!

2. My MashMafia Weightlifting Team! Now with my online coaching, I have athletes all over the country that I talk and work with on a weekly basis. The folks that I work with on a daily basis at the Mash Compound are like Brothers and Sisters.

3. My whole MashElite Family, athletes, morning crew, Smashed CrossFit, Training For Warriors, and our one on ones are the simply the best. I love you all. We do life together, and I would have it no other way.

4. My wife! Emily Drew is the Proverbs 31 wife. I am so blessed to have her, and I thank God every day for her.

5. My daughter! I thank God that I’m able to have a relationship with Bailey even though she lives in Minnesotta. Thanks to the success of our business, I have the ability to see her on a regular basis.

6. My Family and Friends! I’m blessed with the best of each.

7. The best Church Family in the World!

Have a Happy Holiday Season!

Max Out Friday Tips!

20131115-124725.jpg

Some Tips to Make Max Out Friday the Best:

1. Get lots of sleep the night before 9-10 hours!

2. Have a big breakfast!

3. Have your favorite Energy Drink and Coffee available!

4. Have a glycogen replenishing drink available to sip on with extra BCAAs added.

5. Have a play list just for Max Out Friday!

6. Train with people that have the same goals of greatness!

7. Take a break between Snatch and Clean & Jerk! Take a moment, sip on an MRP, and gather your thoughts!

8. Track your minimums! That is the weights that you can always hit, and at least try to raise those.

Here is a video of the First Monster Mash Open:

Good-Luck Today!
