When you’re missing the moral toughness, the virtues of manliness that real men, great men, honorable men possess, you’re going to be devious, ineffective, […]
My body had been pushed past its limits. The only energy I could muster was to put one foot in front of the other, keep my weapon on my shoulder, and lift my feet over any ground that looked disturbed to avoid dragging my feet over a pressure plate. I was in the green zone […]
As men, we’ve been told and taught our entire lives that one of the truest tests of manhood and masculinity is brute strength. We will go out of way at any given opportunity to display that we are stronger than another man. It’s a way for us to feel superior, and alpha. Like pounding on […]

Alright, I’ve been working on a book for almost a year now. I’ve printed it out, edited it, re-printed, edited again. I’ve added and subtracted and I’m adding once again. I haven’t talked about it much because I hate talking about it. How many people do you know who are ‘working on a book?’ They’ve […]
“The blade of self discipline is only sharpened through consistent, purposeful practise”. “Purposeful practise is achieved from the inside out”. Do you think there is any difference between a Navy SEAL and a Monk? At first glance most would say “ehh yes” But, when you look from a certain perspective then, the answer is an […]
It boggles the mind that a rat like Weinstein can grope and molest women and not a single boyfriend or husband or brother or father of that woman kicked the living hell out of him.
With the changing of the seasons comes the inevitable end to your outdoor workouts. This can be a daunting realization, especially if you’re trying to avoid the gym. So how do you move outdoor exercise indoors? (Read This: Becoming a Badass with Bodyweight Workouts) Fortunately, plenty of fitness pros before you have had to face […]

Don’t get clouded by cockiness; even the toughest of us encounter some sort of anxiety or uneasiness when faced with a stressful situation. However innate it is, we can still discover ways to overcome it. Some of the greatest lessons […]
You look at your muscles every day. You work out to boost your gains, increase your muscle size, and enhance your strength and performance. With all that hard work, it’s a wonder how little people truly know about their muscles.
Discipline can be a hard sell… … Or so I thought. A few months ago I created The Lost Art of Discipline. It’s an ebook, a program for people to develop discipline. I thought it would be wildly unpopular because most marketers point people to an enemy, an outside factor or reason as to why […]
Losing a couple of pounds can be nerve-racking. In some cases, eating right, drinking plenty of water, and working out doesn’t seem to help.
