Do you ever look at your wife and think?
I’m glad I bought those pants.
We have a lot of clients. A lot. We are truly very very fortunate. But once you’ve been doing this as long as we have you can easily separate the incoming clients into three groups just during their initial assessment. Here are the three groups:
As a trainer you will never have any issues with groups A or C. They are honest about what they want and where they are going. Sadly to say, the majority of your clients will not fall into this group. It’s Group B that will make you earn your pay check. Your friends and family are unfortunately a part of this group. These are the contest prep clients who really aren’t committed. These are the people who look you in the face, say one thing, and do another. That’s really what I never understood. You’re not hurting me at all, it’s not my body, I wouldn’t do that to my body, why lie? Group B thinks they know better. This is also the same group that cries the whole way to the half way point before they quit. And trust me they quit, every single one of them. If they were 100 there wouldn’t be any whining and crying. Will there be hard times? Fuck yea! That’s part of what makes Group A successful they grind. When you’re 100 on your grind you don’t have time to fucking whine. Think about it. If you’re 100 all you have time to do is the essentials. Group B is 50% TRY, 10% feeling bad about themselves, 10% looking for someone to do it for them, 10% looking for someone else to blame, 10% looking for someone to join them, and 10% work. No wonder you’re not getting shit done, you’re busy doing everything else under the sun but grinding. You don’t have time for a pity party when you’re on your shit. That is how we always know Group B is slacking. Slacking on their diet. Slacking on their workouts. Slacking way behind on results. It shows and everyone knows. You’re transparent.
Fucking Group B man
When you can get Group B to truly buy in. When you can get Group B to really be all in, not with their words but with their actions. That is when you realized you’ve really changed someone. That is a really powerful moment when they achieve some shit they didn’t really think was possible. They talked a lot of shit the whole way, “Yes I’m ready, yes I want to do it, yes I’m giving 100%”. And you know better the entire way. They didn’t believe, that’s when you have to believe for them. You have to carry all the BS on your back. In hopes that one day they will turn the corner. Shits not easy mane, and you will get your back broken time and time again. I’m talking 1% of Group B makes that change but it’s totally worth it.
Meet Jason. His physique is the result of getting too big too fast. Right now his symptoms consist of “so thick it hurts” “can’t walk through doors” “air latitus” “I need more mirrors”.
Let’s talk about the 1% that are actually killing shit. The fortune 500 hundred company owner, that Neurosurgeon at the children’s hospital, that firefighter who pulled the family out of the burning building, that gold medal Olympic athlete, the single mom supporting 3 kids. These people aren’t the type to make excuses they just get shit done. That is why they are the 1%. They aren’t talking about it on a blog, they aren’t spending time talking themselves up. They are shutting the fuck up and doing it. That’s the difference. 1 percenters are doing it! Chasing it. They aren’t changing plans every few months, they aren’t having pity parties. They’ve put their sites on a target and hitting it. Maybe once they get there they change gears and go a different direction but first they achieve while the rest of us make believe.

These kids are gonna be aminals
I have to keep mine active man and make the most of the summer. I can’t have them sitting around the house all day everyday. They will turn out to be lil shits who don’t know how to work hard or interact with other kids (people). Shits good for there physical and mental development. Today was kind of a odd day for this one, he had basketball from 8am till noon. Played around in the gym with Todd and Katie for a hour, now we’re going to go run sprints as a family. That is not a normal day but we try to do something everyday. Lucky baseball starts again for him next week. and on to football training camp for me and his older brother. I’m just lucky I have a job that allows me time to get out and play with my kids.
The larger the muscle bellies projecting up and out, and lower the fat over the muscle, and the tighter the skin, the greater the separation. Some people will try and try and never get it. Sorry, you’re not fast twitch. There are articles out there that say, “train heavy with a lot of reps” and you’ll get muscle separation. Will that work? I dunno maybe for you but not the next man or woman. The one thing I know for sure is that if you think all you have to do is squat you’re mistaken. That is why there are SOOO many completely unbalanced legs on tumblr. I’m not just talking quad to hammy ratio. Just look at some quads “bro do you even rectus or sartorius?” Many unbalance a leg, many injury, many lack symmetry. Keep in mind there is also a HUGE dietary and genetic factors at play. If you’re too fat, you won’t see any quad separation. If you just don’t have it, you won’t see any quad separation. My suggestion? Train hard, eat well, and let the cards fall where they may.
Nothing. Because that would be a disservice. Anyone can google a “workout” plan if they need something to do in the gym. If someone has a specific goal in mind and needs some guidance I can help with that (if it is within my expertise). I can assist someone with training. But if you just want to “workout” don’t waste money and use google. If you want a bigger ass, call me. If you want bigger shoulders, call me. If you want to run faster and jump further, call me. BUT KNOW THIS, I will ask you if your eating for your goals. If you say you have it under control, sweet. If you need help with it, no problem. Your intake is 99.9% more important than your “workout”. Just don’t look at me when you’re not making any improvements and tell me you eat shit out of a wrapper daily.
