How to Maximize Results At A Bad Gym (or no gym)

Most emotions aren't real. Fear isn't real, it's merely a perception of a situation. Sometimes fear can be a good thing, like when it gives us more energy and a heightened awareness so we're able to better defend ourselves. Other times fear can be crippling, paralyzing any chance we have of living a successful and happy life. Stress and worry aren't real, they're our perception of a situation and of our reality. By in large they're a destructive lie that we tell ourselves. A lie that pulls us … [Read More...]

The Ideal Start to an Ideal Day

Greatness doesn’t happen accidentally, nor does it occur in an instant. Greatness, or a grand life, an epic adventure, a legacy filled with impact and meaning to the individual and those who were fortunate enough to be a part of his life, happens … [Read More...]

How to Be An Alpha Male

Where’s Our Battlefield?

Physical strength, for me, has been a means to strengthen other areas of my life. It's lifted up my entrepreneurial spirit, helped me tackle obstacles with a confidence that only comes from knowing you can accomplish something, anything, you set your mind to. Looking like a warrior, physically, has magnified the warrior within me, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Yet, as I sit writing about those things that I'm truly passionate about: fitness, health, being a man, being a warrior, I sit, with fingers made for war and hands made for battle, feeling tamed. There's something inside me that wants a battle, a place to test my courage, to see what I'm made of, an opportunity … [Read More...]

The 3 Steps to Building the Ideal Body

The ideal male body... Da Vinci broke it down to its ratios, the David was Michelangelo's personification of the idea, and antiquity spoke to us about Achilles' perfection. In more modern times, however, this ideal has become an odd, misguided obsession. Guys spend as much time in the gym as they do working and reading. They pollute their bodies with chemicals in an effort to create this ideal, but only in the aesthetic. Are we missing something with our pursuit of the ideal? By merely focusing on the outward appearance of the body are we not diminishing other aspects of what should make up this ideal body that a true alpha male and leader dawns? This is where the Be Legendary … [Read More...]

Stand and Fight

The following is a guest post by Jesse Irizarry. “Ease up on the kid,” the trainer yelled. The fighter backed up to take a break from wailing at my head. There he stood glaring at me, a good thirty pounds heavier than me with almost twenty years’ experience in the ring. The head trainer at the boxing gym I belonged to was having me spar against a much more experienced boxer so I could learn from him. Between the first and second round though, I heard him say to the other fighters watching that I actually caught his jab and hit him pretty hard. Apparently, he was pissed because he came out swinging in the second round and proceeded to give me a black eye and a bloody nose. Finding My … [Read More...]

10 Qualities of a Modern Day Warrior

I hate putting the word "modern" next to the word warrior. Once a warrior always a warrior, I say. But the realities of our world are far different from those of warriors past; at least they appear to be on the surface... The circumstances have changed. In the past a warrior knew his enemy. He fought with a clear purpose, to defend his family, and maintain or gain their freedom. To kill his enemy with his sword, he first had to bring himself within striking distance of his enemy's weapon. Thus, to kill, he had risk his own death. Death was a daily occurrence (powerful and important). As a result, his death was accepted. There were no illusions surrounding his mortality or the preciousness … [Read More...]

17 Valuable Life Lessons You Will Eventually Need to Learn

This was my second trip within the month. On my previous flight I'd taken my first journey to Vegas. 'Twas a trip that would span four sleepless nights filled with stories that must remain in that city, and that probably took 5 years off my life. The flight I was currently on, was actually a result of that trip. Nestled in a window seat of a flight heading to Costa Rica, to, of course, experience the culture, but also to visit a young lady I'd met only a month earlier on that trip to Vegas. My friends busted my balls, as they should, telling me I was headed to a Saw (the horror film) scenario. I'd only corresponded with this girl via email. For all I knew I could be waiting for her to … [Read More...]
