3 Quick and Easy Alpha Body Language Fixes

Everyone has this erroneous idea of alpha meaning you drive a ‘Rarri and bang 20 foreign women every second. No no no no no no. Alpha is a state of being, first and foremost. It is who you are, which is later translated into thoughts, actions, and habits – which then can result in nice things, but those nice things are not the requirement to be alpha.

One of these actions and habits is body language. It’s no secret that body language is highly indicative of the inner state of a person and says a lot about you. As such, we can optimize our body language and over time reprogram our thought patterns and who we are as well as using it to communicate a great deal to the outside world without a single word.

And that thought:action progression is not a one way street. Actions impact thoughts and vice versa. Here are 3 quick and easy alpha body language fixes that you can – and should – begin implementing right away. Continue reading

5 Reasons to Start Lifting Weights

Every afternoon after school was a sacred ritual. I would kick off my shoes, grab a snack, and sit on the sofa mesmerized watching my favorite shows: Dragonball Z, Batman: The Animated Series, and other anime.

Childhood inspiration

I looked at their physiques and strength and knew that’s what I wanted to achieve. I had grown up seeing my dad lifting weights on the rusty, makeshift home gym outside on the patio and getting up at the crack of dawn to go on runs to stay fit for the military, and under his guidance, I got my first glimpse at the world of training and physical development.

I’ve now been training for many years. For strength, for aesthetics, for martial arts, for sports, to correct injury, for health and for well-being. Along the way, I’ve seen firsthand the power of lifting weights in our lives. It has certainly changed mine, and I have witnessed time and time again how it has helped the countless individuals I’ve worked with transform their bodies and lives as well.

I may have started out in my quest to go Super Saiyan, but what are the real great reasons to start lifting? Continue reading

Where’s Waldo?

Growing up in elementary school, during reading time one of my favorite things to do was grab a Where’s Waldo book off of the shelf and pass the time looking for that oddly dressed fellow amongst wild, wacky locations. One page he might be in the circus. The next, he’s at the beach. Apparently, Waldo is a Wizard because he even springs up in different time periods – from the castles of the Middle Ages to the battles of the Ancient Eras. Now what does this have to do with anything??  Continue reading

Goldilocks Syndrome: The Reason Why You Get No Results

Pretty much everyone out there is familiar with the childhood tale of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians has some golden-haired competition, eh?  “This porridge is too hot. This porridge is too cold. This porridge is just right!” said Goldilocks. “This bed is too hard. This bed is too soft. This bed is juuuuust right!” Now lemme ask you…  Continue reading
