4 SET FRIDAY 5/19/17
It’s easy for every one of us to get so stuck in our day-to-day routine that we lose ambition to grow. That’s why I created 4 Set Friday, a rundown of the top fitness content I’m consuming this week.
I was once a lost soul in the gym. I spent YEARS going through the motions with a shitty split, 3 sets of 10 and no progress. It wasn’t until I got my mind right that I started seeing real results and, in turn, enjoying the f*ck out of training.
Yeah, that’s me. I work out.
These days, it can be tough to tell who out there genuinely knows their shit. So, regardless of your goals, age or ability, the tips, tricks and tools in 4 Set Friday are guaranteed by me to hook you with some grade-A knowledge.
Must Read Blog Article
Click bait. Click bait everywhere!
So many “experts” out there are providing misinformation just to get you to read an article and, hopefully, buy their training and/or nutrition plans. Here’s the harsh truth: 99% of them are FULL OF SHIT!
In this piece JC Deen debunks the myth about magical fat burning foods and tells you what you really need to do to lose weight (hint: it’s simple and requires effort).
YouTube Video You Have to See
Do you really know how to bench press? Odds are most of you don’t, at least safely.
I see it every day in the gym: guys (or ladies) benching with their elbows flared out. This is a recipe for disaster and WILL lead to injury, if it hasn’t already.
Get the lowdown from Silent Mike on how to properly prepare yourself and (safely) move that weight.

Quote I’m Repeating to Myself
“Let everyone else call your idea crazy...just keep going. Don't stop. Don't even think about stopping until you get there, and don't give much thought to where "there" is. Whatever comes, just don't stop.” – Phil Knight, Nike Founder
These days everyone wants to be an entrepreneur but few have any idea just how f*cking hard it is. Let me put it in plain terms for the aspiring entrepreneurs out there: IT SUCKS. No income. No friends. No time. NOTHING. It's just you and your dream.
Even if you have the best product (as we do with the AMMO Base Layers) it's no guarantee anyone will buy them...especially not your "boys" (many of whom just want to see you fall flat on your face). The only way you can make it happen is by not stopping. Believe in yourself and keep moving forward.
