Top 10 Transformation Strategies

Saturday, August 31st, 2013

  I had cried to my mom about how overweight I was. She said that all I had to do was eat less junk. I had whined to her that it was too hard. My mother was a simple woman who had parented demonstratively, so she put me in the car ...

Failing to Give Up

Friday, August 30th, 2013

"Daddy, the only thing I'm worried about on my first day of middle school is making a mistake and failing. I want to make you and Mom proud, and want to learn as much as I can to become a Veterinarian," my daughter says to me. I replied, "Babe, let me ...

  A friend today expressed his concern that I was too much of a philosopher and not enough coach. It's ironic as he was reflecting upon the very thing which allows me to coach well: philosophy; which translates from the Greek roots philo- "loving" and sophia "knowledge and wisdom." I coach well, because my goal is ...

Position Strength - Extend Power

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Real positions of strength move into isometric activation, holding at a critical point of tension.

Painless mobility, agility, flexibility, stamina, endurance, cardio-vascular health, all these things create high quality of life and service to our family and community.

Effect. I've continually re-re-relearned this lesson. (Hopefully I have finally totally gotten ...

Hemp is not a drug. It’s a food.

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

In response to my comments promoting hemp as a reliable, plant-based, high-quality, "complete" protein, several posters on my page suggested that I had a responsibility as a public figure to promote the recreational use of marijuana. I advised them that I have strong personal prohibitions against the recreation use of ...

Travel with reliable high quality protein

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

When I travel, I need a reliable high quality protein source that doesn't depend upon risking a genetically modified, or hormonally toxic food source. Meat, fowl, fish and crustaceans as a result become suspect, as I have gotten sick so frequently from poorly prepared food both domestically and abroad. So, my ...

Diet “Crazes” aren’t Sane by definition

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

This good question just in from one of our legion: "Scott, what do you think of a coffee, butter and MCT oil mix taken as part of a intermittent fast? It is a craze I have seen appearing as a bullet proof diet. I would really appreciate your thoughts and ...
