Hey guys I hope all of you are doing well this week and that your workouts are going great. Well if you are feeling down I'm gonna try to motivate you a little bit. How intensely do you train? No seriously how intense are you? Do you talk more than you lift? Are you checking your cell phone while lifting? If you are I have news for you you are not training you are 'working out'. Yes I said it, there is a difference if you are working out you usually don't sweat, your muscle don't feel like they are being ripped off, and your thoughts are not a jumbled mess cause you don't have any blood in your brain. Most people would describe this as insane or say things like "you don't have to work that hard to get in shape." Well I have news for you those people are wrong dead wrong, in order to make progress and the key word here is progress you have to make things harder at least in the gym you do, cause life does that for you automatically. When you train verses work out you have set goals that you work towards much like you do with your life, job, marriage, or whatever it is. Now if you take the "you don't have to work that hard" approach to those things you end up fired or divorced. Taking that same approach with training leads to injury or no results, which one do you want? I will take the intense approach.

Strength and Honor,
