I want to grow, in fact I want to be the best in everything I can! Okay, how am I going achieve that? Discipline. Done. Simple, right? Not so much, discipline is a skill that takes time and sacrifice to develop. Discipline stems from self sacrifice with an objective in mind.
Day 1: I awoke at 6:30 a.m. (not as early as most, so insignificant) I then after getting ready hopped on my bicycle and peddled through six inches of compressed snow to work. I know other people who do this; I do, and they inspire me. However, how many of you waking up for work on an 18 degree day with snow blowing in your face, each stroke of your peddle turning in vain while threatening to dump you on your face, would decide willingly to sacrifice a warm ride in a car? Good if you said yes, that's dedication, that's promise.
Take from today: That out there, somewhere, there is someone pushing, driving, drilling, striving for a result - giving, sacrificing everything they have to make the best of themselves. I want you to be that person, I want you to excel beyond expectations, to push beyond measure, to strive to be something more than you thought you could become.
Our work in physical measure begins tomorrow. Test yourself, push your limits... I will be completing this training:
5x1 Overhead Squats
5x3 Front Squats
5x5 Back Squats
