We're all busy. It seems like these days the demands of life have absolutely destroyed our circadian rhythms.
But did you know binging on Game of Thrones until 3am has an impact on your ability to burn fat (not to mention build muscle)?

YouTube Video You Have to See
Do you wish there were an exercise that could burn massive calories while working nearly every muscle in your body? Something that could help regardless of whether your goals were building muscle, adding strength or, even, losing weight? Sounds like panacea, right?
Well, it's not. The deadlift is the single best exercise you can do. Period. The problem is that most people don't know how to properly execute this lift.
Scott Herman just posted a great video discussing 3 key tips to deadlift safely and strongly. Check it out here.

Quote I’m Repeating to Myself
“Risk more than others think is safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible.” – Frank Zane, Bodybuilding Legend
You can't judge your dreams, failures and/or successes based on the standards of other people. We all only get one crack at the game of life, and if your calling is to achieve something great then the only thing holding you back is yourself.
If it's not, then that's cool too. Just don't tear down the guy or girl dedicated to doing something special. Encourage it. Trust me. Karma always comes back around.
