Krypteia Review

The Krypteia program has been used by all the HS/College athletes I work with AND various members of the private forum.  Here is a review of this program by forum member Josh.  This was done in two parts and over time; I will publish both in this blog post. Context If you don't have the time to read this here's the basic synopsis: Awesome program for anyone who is physically able to complete it. It's the closest I've come to a workout that actually balances conditioning and strength and doesn't leave you feeling wasted. This review covers Part 1 of Krypteia. I've been using 5/3/1 since 2011. I've used it while gaining strength or size, while losing weight or improving...

Don't Quit Your Day Job - CNBC and Jim Wendler, Part 3

The following article is the latest (3rd article) from CNBC; this one has some very basic suggestions for anyone who wants to "follow their passion" and turn it into their job.  Understand that when your passion becomes your job, you often lose the love for that passion. It is no longer about putting out quality information/product/services; it's about paying the bills.  This isn't true for everyone obviously but something to consider.  Years ago the idea of "Follow your Passion!" became the buzzword. Unfortunately, this isn't a smart option for some.  However, there are ways to do it without ending up having to sell your bootyhole for cash. Read on for more information. There is one small mistake in the article;...

Anyone who is remotely interested in heavy music and/or the idea that volume can be an instrument knows Jucifer.  Jucifer is a two-piece band consisting of Amber (guitars) and Edgar (drums). They are a married couple and ditched "normal life"; they sold their home, bought an RV and are on constant tour.  For those that have seen Jucifer live, you have also FELT Jucifer live.  Amber plays with a wall, literally a wall of cabinets powered by a huge number of bass and guitar amps.   Their music runs the gamut of minimalist sludge, grind, rock and everything in between. Their roots are clearly in doom/sludge and when they are fist-deep in the abyss, you know it.  While their recorded...

What You Do Matters

This is from the Jim Wendler forum. I wrote this almost 4 years ago and think it's important for people to read, especially young people who currently have jobs they hate.  Or maybe if you are years into your career and aren't sure about your choice.  Or maybe you downplay/criticize what others do in order to "put them in their place".

Jim Wendler and CNBC

As startling as this is, I made it onto CNBC.  No, I do not have any photo/video blackmail evidence that led to this.  The author, Eric Chemi, has used 5/3/1 for many years and heard about the new book coming out.  There are going to be a few more written articles and there is also going to be voice recordings/news regarding our talk from Monday-Friday of this upcoming week. As always, it's cool to see so many people from different walks of life/profession/backgrounds use the program with success.  Thank you to Eric and everyone that made this happen. You can read the original article here. Read Wendler On CNBC 2:  Discipline and Goal-Setting Here
