F**K Resolutions - Worst Idea Ever

F**K Resolutions - Worst Idea Ever

I came up with a horribly wonderful idea. I told my girlfriend, Miss Capra and she said I was crazy!  The next 90 days I will attempt to accomplish my goals by executing a step by step plan.  It is going to be difficult however extremely rewarding. New Years Resolutions are horse crap because there is no plan. I will use my Best Self Co. Journal to map out my road to success.

ICELAND DAY 2: THOR'S ICEBATH

ICELAND DAY 2: THOR'S ICEBATH

Finally we watched Thor break record as he carried the 419lb Husafell stone and become Iceland's Strongest Man. We had a blast and he invited us back to his place for dinner and a soak in his ICE BATH. They say hopping between hot and cold tubs is great for recovery. It was really freaking cold.

ICELAND DAY 1: MATT VINCENT LOST MY DRONE

Day 1 in Iceland 2017 tour. We have a bum knee, broken slider, 80d went down, and Matt lost my Phantom 4 Pro Drone! Going on no sleep and a 10k Hike put a whopping on me. 

Guns, Deadlifts, Snatches and Steak

Guns, Deadlifts, Snatches and Steak

Headed to Baton Rouge, LA for some firearms training with Matt Vincent. Needed to do some gear prep. Had a good planning meeting with him. TJ from TG Holsters stopped by to drop off some of the holsters we will be working with this weekend. Got a good training session in doing some deadlifts and Sorinex CMB Snatches for time. Then crushed some delicious Steak seasoned by Tacticalories. 

Guys, I'm Moving to L.A.

Guys, I'm Moving to L.A.

I had a meeting in L.A. to discuss some upcoming projects. Man, what an awesome trip! Christmas Abbott and Chad Ottenbreit were great and just funny as can be. The meeting went well and we are all very excited of the potential ahead. None the less we had a great time getting to know each other. And I was just kidding about the "moving to L.A." part, that's never gonna happen.

My Holy F@*king S**t Weekend at The Arnold

My Holy F@*king S**t Weekend at The Arnold

This is when I should have known things were going to go sideways for this trip! I found a place that in my budge and was available. Also! It was only a few short blocks from the Arnold Sports Festival. The lady immediately hit me back and said "Hey, just wanted to let you know that this house is located in a less than desirable neighborhood."

Adventure to Panama City Beach

Adventure to Panama City Beach

I had the opportunity to make a spontaneous trip to Panama City Beach, FL where I spent my teenage years. Thought it would be a good idea to show you a little bit of my journey and some of the fun you can have in Panama City Beach. 

I broke it down into a three part video series. Hope you enjoy and get down there enjoy it for yourselves!

Everything You Need to Climb a Mountain

Everything You Need to Climb a Mountain

SO YOU WANT TO CLIMB MT RAINIER?

Mount Rainier is a unique mountain within the contiguous United States. No other mountain is as extensively glaciated or has as much prominence. The scale and character of Mt. Rainier is more akin to an Alaskan or Andean peak. The highest trailhead requires the climber to gain 9,000 feet of elevation to reach the summit, as much as from Everest ABC to its summit.

Winter Survival Guide

Everything You Need to Know to Survive in Cold Weather

For a lot of people, when they think of “survival,” they think of activities we typically associate with warm weather — camping, fishing, hiking, and the list goes on. Truth be told, most of us are more comfortable in warmer weather, so it’s not surprising that we tend to practice and hone our survival skills during the summer months. This can be a dangerous and even deadly mistake, however, when you are faced with an emergency situation in the winter and find that you haven’t adequately prepared.
