There I was, in the dining hall of San Diego State University listening to the stories one guy was telling about his adventures. He talked about becoming a latin dance champion, winning martial arts events, learning to speak multiple languages and more.
Who was this rather interesting guy?
His name was Tim Ferriss and at the time I had no idea who he was or what he would end up doing. I of course later found out that the man I enjoyed lunch with was the #1 New York Times Bestseller of The 4 Hour Work Week and later went on to write 2 more best selling books.
The point is… I have this strange habit of meeting people before they become super popular or even famous. I’m not sure why this happens, but it seems to happen over and over again in my life.
If you don’t know who Elliott is, he’s the fitness guru with the personality of a pro wrestler that’s blowing up YouTube with his barage of in your face, no B.S. videos that leave viewers laughing out loud, nodding their heads in agreement or sour faced saying to themselves, “no you didn’t.”
In fact the reason why I called him was because I was watching one of his recent videos about supplements which left me laughing out loud for about 10 minutes. It was good stuff
But that’s not what we really talked about… Nope…
Since Elliott has risen to YouTube stardom, he’s been afforded the freedom to work on becoming the strongest version of himself. He travels with his family, studies from some of the most influential and controversial fitness pro’s in the world and he is always working at becoming better.
During our conversation yesterday, Elliott looked at the way I presented myself in my videos. His biggest tip for me to develop a better relationship with you was to share more of my personal stories with you and give you a direct window into what I was doing in my life.
Since Elliott has achieved such a tremendous amount of success in the last few years I figured I should take his advice and start giving you unrestricted access to my current thoughts and direction I am taking in my life.
So… Here it is where I’m at right now… I invite you to join me because this is the time of year most people slack. If you do like I do then December can serve as the foundation for everything you will achieve in 2014.
You see, December is a time of year that I usually spend a lot of time staring at the wall. The reason I do this is because I like to reflect on the lessons I learned during the previous year. This way I can decide what I did right and what I may have wasted my time on.
I remember my wife coming into my home office a couple years ago after about 2 weeks of my yearly deep reflection phase and lashing out at me saying, “what are you doing, I’ve watched you stare at the wall for 2 weeks?”
The good news is that almost everything I planned back then has come true
This is something you can do as well. Take a few minutes each day and ask yourself these questions…
1) What do I really want to achieve in 2014? Physical goals, financial goals, travel goals etc.
2) What did I do that I enjoyed doing in 2013 that really helped me get closer to these goals? New job, started using my workout programs , etc.
3) How do I intend to achieve these goals in 2014? Lay out the steps you need to take to get there.
Think long and hard on this and take the time to develop a good plan and in just 12 short months you will be a different person!
I’ll be filling you in on my BIG plans for 2014 as I cement them in my own mind but one thing is for sure…
I’ve got 6 new ideas that will become a reality in 2014. In fact, 3 of these ideas I am already testing out and I am having great results from them. The bottom line is that I’ve got a ton of awesome plans for 2014 to help you look, feel and perform your best and I invite you to join me on my transformation!
Special thanks to Elliott Hulse for the inspiration and lessons yesterday. Elliott is a really inspiring guy who is way ahead of the pack when it comes to understanding what really works in the world of fitness.
Elliott is so popular these days that he rarely does promotions on his programs but yesterday he informed me that this week he is bringing back his most popular program and cutting $50 off the price.

I got an email yesterday after I shared the brutal kettlebell workout that I think is one of the hardest workouts I’ve ever done! Here’s what the email said…
This is a great question and one that is often answered by shifty marketing tactics that try to convince you to buy their kettlebells. Instead of trying to convince you to buy kettlebells I wanted to share with you my #1 reason I love kettlebells.
You might have heard about the benefits of them having an offset center of gravity, or being the ultimate conditioning tool but that’s NOT why I love them… Nope, the reason I LOVE kettlebells is…
They have a different perception surrounding them.
Here’s what that means…
When I first started my bootcamp years ago the biggest problem I saw was that that the ladies in my classes were afraid to use heavy dumbbells. Literally anything heavier then 8lbs was perceived as too heavy for a woman to use.
This all changed when I brought kettlebells into the classes
In fact, people would ask me how heavy their kettlebell was and I would respond in kilograms. This left them confused not knowing the difference and I would immediately see a 2X increase in their strength based solely on their perception.
After they figured out that I was telling them kilos and not lbs I changed my approach and simply convinced them that kettlebells are different then dumbbells so the weights had to be different.
Regardless of what they believed about other forms of weight training, by introducing a new belief I ALWAYS saw a dramatic increase in their strength which resulted in better results with their physique.
I even remember one client, a 65 year old lady at first telling me that she couldn’t lift heavier then 5lbs with a dumbbell. After 6 months of conditioning her to believe that kettlebells were different I watched her press a 35lb kettlebell overhead with one arm.
That’s the power of altering your beliefs!!
So ask yourself this question to figure out if kettlebells are right for you…
“Am I limiting my own results because I believe that I am weaker then I am?
If so, then maybe you should try using kettlebells so you can challenge yourself even further and get a fresh start. But… If you are already challenging yourself with the amount of weight you are using, then you can get almost the same results with a dumbbell.
This last year has been a big one for me. I’ve gone through so many life changes it’s hard to express myself through this single email. So… I decided that to express my gratitude, I want to to share with you the 2 biggest lessons I’ve learned from my major life changes this year.
Please read this whole article, share it with your friends and then take a moment to reflect on the lessons life has taught you this year and why you are grateful for them.
The Passing Of My Dog Dio
Perhaps the most painful life change that happened to me this year was the passing of my beloved dog Dio. He was without a doubt a hard dog to be around, but I loved him greatly and miss him every day.
I wrote an article after his passing that still brings me to tears whenever I give it a read. Although this was a painful experience, I realize I have no control over it and now choose to be grateful for the 5 main lessons I learned. Here they are…
LESSON #1 – Patience
Nothing has tested my patience more then that dog. There were times when he wouldn’t stop barking or when he would wake me up on the one day I had to sleep in by licking my face or poking me with his cold wet nose.
There were so many stories I can remember where my patience was tested but through all of that, I learned more about myself, about how being patient and mindful or in the moment was a key part of my growth.
As the years passed I developed great patience which I now consider a virtue. I now am grateful that this dog tested my patience and helped me to grow as a human. I thank him every time my patience is tested.
LESSON #2 – Control
Before watching hi get hit by a car, I was happy and unaware that anything like this could happen. When everything is good in your life you have a false sense of control, that nothing bad could happen and you certainly aren’t prepared for the sudden death of someone or something you love.
Then… In a split second, your life can change…
I still can’t stop replaying the scene in my head that I witnessed that fateful day and the only thing I feel when I think about this is a sense of vulnerability. The painful knowledge that your life can change in a split second is enough to drive people mad.
But, instead of living with guilt, instead of focusing on your lack of control, what this has taught me was to accept that there are things that are outside of your control. These things that are outside of your control you cannot change, and you must not spend time trying to change them.
But… You do have control over yourself, your response. A quote that is with me during hard times like this is from Viktor E. Frankl. It reminds me of the only true thing we have control over. In his book Mans Search For Meaning Viktor Says…
“Between Stimulus And Response there Is A Space. In That Space Is Our Power To Choose Our Response. In Our Response Lies Our Growth And Freedom.”
Knowing what we have control over and what we do not allows us the freedom to identify the things we can and should spend our time on. And with that knowledge we need to make every moment count.
LESSON #3 – Every Moment Counts
Each and every one of us forgets to be in the moment. We spend our lives numb to the present, always living in the past with our memories or in the future with our imagination.
Today I have felt more present then in many years and in feeling this way I am able to identify one of my greatest weaknesses…
Being In The Moment
Being centered and present is something very few people are capable of. But in moments of great joy, sorrow and fear we experience each moment with such clarity that life can feel different.
Being in the moment to me seems to be a double edged sword. On one side any pain you experience can be magnified, leaving you feeling lost and incapable of moving through each individual moment.
But… If harnessed… Being in the moment, being mindful of the present, of your emotional content can become an experience of liberation allowing you to experience and appreciate the only thing you truly have… The present moment.
What I learned is to strive to live in the now, whether in pain and sorrow or love and joy. Show your character through the experiences you provide to others, spend less time judging and more time focusing on the positives.
LESSON #4 – Focus On The Positives
As humans we are attracted to negativity. It is much easier to judge people based on their faults then to seek out the positive gifts each and every one of us have.
I spent far too much time focusing on the negative personality traits that my beloved dog Dio had and never enough time focused on the joy, love and laughter he provided.
It’s ironic now to me that what I before considered negative traits I would give anything to see again.
This has expanded my mind and my heart to consider that even the things we can’t stand about the people we love are things that we would miss if they were gone.
Accept the character of your loved ones and find ways to delight in everything about them whether they are good or bad. Focus on the positives, forgive the negatives and most importantly, remember to love them unconditionally.
LESSON #5 – Unconditional Love
This experience more then anything has taught me that the most important thing we can do is cultivate and provide unconditional love.
Unconditional love or love without conditions is the greatest gift anyone can give or receive. It is the greatest of all human virtues and is the seed of true life mastery.
I loved that dog with all of my heart and I am grateful for the lessons he taught me
The Birth Of My Daughter
Before I begin this next story and share with you the powerful story I wrote about the birth of my daughter, I want you to keep in mind the 3 statements that I have come to believe with 100% certainty in my life.
These 3 statements have helped me get through soo much and if integrated into your life can help you change the way you live and perhaps guide you through a challenge you are having in your life.
#1 – On Character And Adversity
“Our Character Is Forged In The Fires Of Our Adversities”
#2 – On The Void Between Stimulus And Response
“Between Stimulus And Response There Is A Space, In This Space Is Our Power To Choose Our Response, And In That Response Lies Our Growth And Freedom” – Viktor Frankl
#3 – On Understanding Life Expectations
“Everything That Happens To Us In Our Lives, Happens For A Good Reason. There Are No Exceptions. It Is Our Responsibility To Find That Reason” – Tyler Bramlett
There I was… Standing alone in a hallway… It was almost 1am in the morning and I was engaged in the emotional conflict of my life. Nothing was as I had expected and the dark irrational thoughts swept over me as I shook uncontrollably, sobbing like never before in my life.
I was uncertain of what was to come, I was uncertain about the safety of my wife and I was uncertain as to the health of my unborn child.
But it didn’t start out this way. Let me take you back to where this all started and allow you to experience what I faced and what I learned in the process.
As you may know, I like to live a natural life. I like real natural foods, I like doing real natural movements, I like experiencing nature, I love to grow and learn and I love a good conversation better then most.
This is what I affectionately refer to as living the warrior lifestyle. I strive each day to become a better human being and to nourish my personal passion and the passions of others.
My wife is a wise, beautiful and strong woman who share many of my values and together we made the decision to take our natural lifestyle and experience the natural birth of our child through a home birth (supervised by a qualified midwife of course).
It was a Wednesday night, late in the night and I was sound asleep until suddenly, I was awoke to the sound of my wife breathing heavy and moaning.
With a deep sense of excitement, I got out of bed knowing full well what this meant…
I was gonna have a baby!
We counted her contractions until it became clear that we should call the midwife.
She arrived shortly after and we began to prepare for what was to come…
My wife bravely worked over the course of 33 hours to get to 10cm. We had watched 2 sunrises already and although exhausted, we knew that the end was in sight.
It was time to gear up for the final go, she worked, she worked so hard it brought tears to my eyes. I watched for several hours and noticed the subtle shift in the look on our midwives eyes as progress seemed to stall.
It became evident that our dreams of having a home birth were not to be realized… Not this time.
We were disappointed but both knew it was the right choice to seek medical intervention as the health and safety of our baby was always #1.
We went to the hospital where after some brief rest we set up to give it another go and see if we could still have the natural birth that we both wanted.
Again, as the minutes turned into hours I again noticed the same look on everyone’s face.
The dying hope of experiencing the natural childbirth we had wanted was in the air. We were coming up on 48 hours and the decision was made in the best interest of the baby to do birth by a cesarean section.
I had never seen my wife so deflated, so filled with pain and sorrow. I would have given anything to take that away from her in that moment.
She was wheeled away and I was prepped for the operation room where I would be able to join her and finally experience the birth of our child.
As I approached the O.R. she looked at me… I will never forget the look that nurse from the O.R. had in her eyes. I knew something was wrong…
You see, my wife is one of a rare few who is a non responder to many narcotic based pain medications. The nurse relayed to me that the anesthesiologist tried to numb her from the waist down so I could join her in the O.R.
I knew what she was about to say next and the feelings I had after the following statement were indescribable.
She informed me that due to the narcotic epidural not working on her, they had chosen to put her under general anesthesia for the operation and I was not allowed to join her in the room.
Through a series of events my beautifully natural home birth had turned into a personal nightmare.
There I was… Alone in a hallway. It was almost 1am in the morning I had slept maybe 5 good hours in the last 60+ and I was engaged in the emotional conflict of my life. Nothing was as I had expected and the dark irrational thoughts swept over me as I shook uncontrollably, sobbing like never before in my life.
But even in this dark moment I remembered the 3 statements I shared with you above. I remembered that our greatest character comes from our hardest moments. That I even though I had every excuse to be controlled by fear and uncertainty, I still had the ability to choose my response to those fears and that uncertainty. And finally I remembered that everything in my life, and yours too, no matter what, happens for a good reason.
In my deep contemplation, I used those quiet moments to learn more about myself. I recalled a conversation I had with a friend of mine where he reminded me to not judge others as you never know what they went through. Having been on the other side of this situation now was the greatest reminder to embody a practice of non judgement that I have ever experienced.
I made peace with acceptance and realized that while knowing and proclaiming the direction we want our lives to go in, we must also be open to change and the lessons it provides. I was deeply connected to my expectations and thus I was deeply hurt when those expectations weren’t met.
It was a reminder to me that while we have the ability to choose the direction we would like to travel, we rarely have control over the roads we end up having to take to get there.
With this knowledge and acceptance I re framed my thoughts and focused on the one thing I knew would still be able to bring me joy. Regardless of the experience, I was about to meet my baby.
I repeated the words, “is it a boy or girl” over and over hundreds of times in a row as a reminder to me that the dark thoughts had no control and that perhaps I was being given this lesson for a good reason.
The doors opened, a loud roar screeched through the stale hospital air and I spoke with a soft whimper, “is it a boy or girl?”
It was a girl!! My wife was ok
I hope you can learn as much from these experiences as I have this year.

What motivates you, inspires you, gets you going? To achieve goals that seem overwhelming, these are some things you HAVE to find.
Light the fire within yourself and no goal will be too much.
I want a one arm chin… yes this is still a big goal of mine. How I deal with achieving this longtime goal is doing what I call “CHUNKING”.
I take my big goal, and break it down into bite sized pieces. Setting one goal at a time.
You can apply chunking to ANY goal you have – weight loss, fat loss, pull ups, handstands… you name it, you can get there.
Start with where you are and place goals in between where you want to end up.
It was early 2004 almost 10 years ago when I first tried the workout I am about to share with you…
My heart was pounding, I was sucking wind like a high powered sports car and I fought with every thing I had to keep going. Every single second that ticked by felt like minutes and the last 30 seconds was just painful.
As soon as the 10 minute timer went off, I dropped the kettlebell out of my hands, stumbled like a drunken sailor towards the bushes and ejected everything I had from my body in one aggressive heave.
Sweating profusely and still barely able to breathe, I waddled to the grass and fell flat on my back. Time stood still as I lay there recovering from the mayhem that just happened.
When I was finally able to scrape my limp body off the ground it hit me… I beat it! My goal was a score of 200+ and I had just pulled off a grand total of 252 on the very first time I tried it.
This was the type of workout that digs deep into your soul and demands that you show the world what you are made of. It’s a nearly psychedelic experience that changes the way you think about yourself for good!
I’m about to tell you the exact workout I did and challenge you to give it a shot yourself, but…
BE WARNED: This is not for the faint of heart and I DO NOT recommend it to anyone who doesn’t feel they are 100% ready…
However, if you like a challenge and want to try a game changing workout that will test your mental toughness to the max then here’s the exact workout I did nearly 10 years ago…
Once you have decided on the weight you are gonna use, get out a countdown timer or have someone keep track of the time for you. Set the timer to go off at 10 minutes and do as many total reps/rounds as possible of:
The goal is to get 200 (or more) total reps in 10 minutes!
Trust me, this is harder then it looks but is well worth giving it a shot
The reason I was doing this workout was to prepare for the original kettlebell certification program I was about to go through called the RKC. Back then, it was a military like operation that prided itself on teaching the toughest workouts imaginable.
In fact, every person who has done this same “rite of passage” workout and scored over 200 is tough as nails in my book! Give this short 10 minute challenge a shot today and see how you stack up against the goal of 200.
The reason why I was compelled to tell you about this workout today is because my friend and fellow kettlebell enthusiast Chris Lopez (he’s scored over 200 on this test) partnered with someone you already know to create 30+ more workouts just like the one I shared with you.
These workouts are short, EXTREMELY intense and “fun” to do
Do you have either of these 2 problems?
Let’s face it… We all have problems right? Some financial, some physical, some with our relationships… BUT… If you have either one of the 2 problems below then I have a quick way to fix them for you…
So… Do you have either one of these problems?
PROBLEM #1 – Do You Want To Try Going Gluten Free, But Have No Idea Where To Start? If YES… Read the first section of this email SOLUTION #1.
PROBLEM #2 – Do You Have Tight Hips That Are Preventing You From Building A Stronger, More Mobile Lower Body? If YES… Skip ahead to the second section of this email SOLUTION #2.
SOLUTION #1 – Here’s How You Should Approach Going Gluten Free.
If your reading this then you’ve probably heard about all of the potential side effects gluten can have on your body. I know from my own experience that going 100% gluten free makes me look, feel and perform my best.
But… It took me several years of messing around with gluten free diets to realize the #1 mistake that people make when trying to give the gluten free lifestyle a shot.
The mistake most people make is NOT eating bread, pasta, cookies, brownies, cake and other delectable carbs.
Eat More Bread Go Gluten Free.
You see, the reason why people fail on any nutrition program is because they create a feeling of deprivation. This feeling of deprivation or not having what they crave eventually leads them to failure.
So… What’s the fix to this?
Quit depriving yourself and make a small change instead! I dare you to try going gluten free for 21 days top see how you feel. But… That doesn’t mean you 100% need to avoid bread, pasta, cookies, cakes etc.
Nope… It just means you need to eat gluten free bread, pasta, cookies and cakes. When you simply switch to gluten free options of these tasty carbs, you can make a gradual change to trying the gluten free life without the feeling of being deprived.
In fact, my wife made me an awesome gluten free cake for my birthday recently and my mother in law didn’t know it was gluten free. After tasting it, she said, “Ohhh my god! This is the best cake EVER!” And the kicker is, she’s an awesome baker who wins 1st place in the county fair every year.
No joke… Gluten free substitutes to your favorite carbs can actually be tastier then their gluten containing counterparts. I even have a gluten free french toast recipe that I make for my family every Sunday which everyone who’s had it agrees is the best french toast they’ve ever had!
So… If you want to try going gluten free, don’t cut out all the tasty stuff otherwise you set yourself up for guaranteed failure. Instead, find gluten free versions of your favorite treats and eat them so you don’t fail.
Here’s some great news… If you’re not sure how you could possibly have cake, cookies, bread and pasta and still be gluten free then check out the link below where you can get 120 tasty gluten free recipes for ONLY $9.

SOLUTION #2 – Here’s The Best Way To Gain Flexibility In Your Hips.
About 8 years ago was the first time I was ever able to do the splits. Yep, at 6’1” and 200lbs I could drop down into a full front split no problemo. It was my James Brown trick whenever I went to a dance party
But, I didn’t gain that kind of flexibility by doing endless hours of passive stretching. Nope, although passive stretching can help a little, there’s a much faster way to do it.
I first learned about this from and ex-soviet special forces instructor who explained to me that the limiting factor of flexibility wasn’t muscles, or fascia or skin… In fact, the limiting factor that is preventing you from gaining flexibility is…
That’s right! Your joint capsule is what is preventing you from achieving maximum flexibility and strength through a full range of motion.
So… How do you open up your joint capsule?
Essentially, you need to kiss static stretching goodbye and instead do the following as your flexibility routine…
a) Myofascial release such as foam rolling, rolling on a lacrosse ball or getting some soft tissue work done. The trick is to roll the muscles that surround your mobile joints (hips, shoulders, t spine etc.) 5-10 minutes would do fine.
b) Advanced mobility drills such as side lunges, hindu pushups and more. Ease into them and perform them back to back as to warm up the muscles through a full range and build strength plus flexibility at the same time.
c) PNF style stretching where you assume positions and practice relaxing and contracting the muscles while imagining length and space in your joints. This can add a significant amount of flexibility to any movement in just one session.
These 3 things are what helped me to get into a split for the first time and are still my preferred method to loosening up my hips or any other part of my body.
If you want a hip flexibility program that uses all the techniques I described above and gets my BIG stamp of approval the check this out —> Check Out The MMA Hip Mobility Program That Can Loosen Your Hips In 7 Days!
I hope that with all of the things running through your head on a daily basis, and the problems you face ever day that at least you know how to solve these 2 problems!

There’s a lot of emails going around this week in the fitness world about Nate Miyaki’s NEW Feast Your Fat Away Book. So… I wanted to take the time to write a complete and honest review of it so you could know the truth as I see it. Plus there’s some cool pic’s below Let’s dig in…
PART 1 – Nate Didn’t Have Great Genetics
Nate is obviously a fit guy, right? I’ll show you some pics in a sec but you should know that it hasn’t always been that way for him. In fact Nate’s been through the ringer and that’s why he’s so dang smart now.
Like me Nate started his life as a chubby kid. As he got older, he apparently became “skinny fat” and then decided that he needed to do something about it. Like most of us he followed conventional wisdom lost some fat, and then started to see the negative health consequences from eating a “healthy” diet.
Eventually he discovered the Paleo Diet which helped him feel great but strangely didn’t allow him to keep the physique he had earned through years of hard training and dieting. He started dropping muscle, his performance in the gym suffered and he dug into the research as to why.
Like me, he found that no one diet fit’s everyone and the macronutrient needs that he had were different then perhaps a sedentary person. Eventually, after experimenting on himself and his high end clients (Nate trains rich Silicon Valley entrepreneurs how to get lean fast) he’s perfected his own system.
This allowed him to go from “sumo baby” to lean and mean 24/7/365 while still being able to enjoy his diet. Here’s a pic of his journey…
PART 2 – Nate’s A Total Geek And He’s Got Proof It Works
One of the things I love most about this book is that it’s one of the rare few actually useful nutrition books I’ve read recently that has lots of scientific studies referenced in it.
You see, most diet books fall into 2 categories…
Category 1… They have piles of confusing scientific references that spell out the biochemical reasons you should follow their diet but rarely have any real proof that their system actually works.
Category 2… They are based purely on anecdotal observations of the writer. Sometimes they have social proof from clients or colleagues and often they only have one transformation from themselves
Nate is a unique individual in that he’s got tons of scientific research under his belt, he’s done over a decade of self experimentation to see what really worked AND he’s got tons of social proof showing you that IT DOES WORK! Here’s what I mean…
PART 3 – Nate’s Got A No B.S. Approach
Check out this quote in the beginning of the book…
It’s a great way to summarize the type of guy Nate is. You see, me and him can talk theory, research and practical application about diet and exercise all day long but you probably don’t care about all of that, right?
You probably want to get down to the nitty gritty details as to what works and how you can join in on the results, right?
This book —> Feast Your Fat Away is a distillation of everything Nate has learned in his high level career and is a very direct approach to you getting the same results as his clients who pay him the big bucks!
He’s got chapter summaries at the end of every chapter that give you the exact steps you need to take in less than a page. It’s really an easy book to follow
PLUS… Even if you are into research and the nerdy stuff, he’s got segments at the end of every chapter that break down the science for you so you can have a deeper understanding. Here’s a sample of what I mean…
PART 4 – Nate’s The Real Deal
As I said before, Nate is someone who I considered a true expert. He is NOT a pseudo expert that’s preaching B.S. to you about what worked for just them or a geek who gathers data from dozens of books and puts them all into his own book.
Nope… He’s the real deal!
He talks the talk and walks the walk. Heck… Even his wife used his nutrition and exercise strategies to sculpt her body.
Take a look…
Crazy right? She’s more ripped then most guys!
So… To conclude my honest review, I would call this one of the top nutrition books available today. Obviously Nate is the real deal and the layout of his new book is simple to use, scientifically accurate and works, plain and simple.
I’ll be feasting my fat away over the holidays, will you?
