Movement is life. When you stop moving long enough, you’re dead.

It’s not rocket science!

Aside from that, movement helps you recover from hard training faster and better.

If you wait until all your soreness goes away, you are losing ground.

The soreness goes away faster as you move.

After you hit a good hard training session, get enough quality food, sleep, & water then get back to your training, while you are still somewhat sore.

Keep in mind, I am not talking about severe pain. If you are  feeling that, go to your doctor and get it checked out.

Be smart, train hard and often.


I have learned over the years how important it is to make your training match you.

Having used different training systems, I have kept what helped me most and ditched the rest.

I decided one day that I don’t want to feel like I got hit by a truck every time I train.

Be bold enough to not follow the crowd.

Decide what works best for you and do that. Don’t get sucked into the trap of doing the coolest thing around.

If a training method is beating you up, it is no good, period.

Change what you need to change or find a different system.

Remember in Dr. Fred Hatfiled’s 7 laws of training, the first one listed is the law of individual differences.

We are not all alike and will respond differently to training than other people do.
