The Daily Experience 4/7/15

Fly Fishing

I’ve been fishing the past 2 days and have had a blast. I grew up my whole life fly fishing with my best buddies from my childhood neighborhood. Our backyards were linked together by a fence, and our fathers and grandfathers got us into fly fishing at a young age. As 10 year old kids we used to travel into wyoming and parts of Idaho to explore their beautiful trout rivers and streams. And most importantly, to learn how to be patient and deal with downtime. Oftentimes, on the river, the fishing gets slow and sometimes boring; and you gotta learn to deal with that boredom by seeking to appreciate nature and the beauty of the river by living in the moment of it all. Reading is a common practice along the river, and when the afternoon nap calls your name, then you take it on the bank while letting the river lead you to meditative sleep.

The Daily Experience 2/11/15

To Life Coaches & Students

If you are starting to feel beat up, then make sure you are taking care of yourself by living right. Training in this way is not for the faint of heart. Yes, you are going to experience a few aches and pains, but that shouldn’t stop you from training. You come in, get hot, work on some mobility, and then get going.

On wednesdays, and over the weekend, you need to be working hard on your spiritual self and allowing your body to relax and recover. Don’t forget about the spiritual work of the program, and especially not about the nutrition.

I love what’s going on in the WAR gym experience, so keep it up. Remember, you must carry an intensity and reverence in the gym experience or you will get hurt in the gym experience. Make sure you are not resting too long during the STRONG and barbell work (keep a pace); but also keep focused on the task at hand. If one has a large load on the bar, then it would not be wise of you to be playing grab ass in between sets and during the rest. You should be coaching each other so that you can develop a coaches eye and become a good coach. I’m not saying that any of you are playing grab ass, so don’t worry; I just want to make it clear what is to be expected in the WAR gym experience. I don’t want anyone getting hurt.

Thanks everyone for doing the WAR program the right way. Like I said, I love what’s going on. We have a special community, and I’m so thankful for everybody. Let’s keep helping people to get into the barbell way of life 🙂

The Running, Swimming, & Reading Experience

IMG_3946

By Nick Thomas

I love Wednesdays. They are a great opportunity to slow the world down and really hone in on the spiritual. Great jog with audiobook/pool session. I am so grateful to be a part of WAR, and would like to point out that the high the WAR lifestyle brings me does not just last a few minutes, or a few hours. It lasts much longer, and it can last a lifetime.
