Beauty and the Beast Friday!


“There is a beast in man that should be exercised, not exorcised.” – Anton Szandor LaVey

…so let him out to play…only on Beast Friday of course. On every other day, he needs to stay on his leash!





DAILY FEATURE: “Buddha in Blue Jeans” by Tai Sheridan

400000000000000591676_s4Buddha in Blue Jeans was recommended to me by Chris Moore of Barbell Buddha and Barbell Shrugged fame. It is a fantastic, though short book on the application of Buddhist philosophies in daily modern life. Whether you are a practicing Buddhist or simply looking to improve the way you feel and, more importantly, make others feel you should definitely give it a read. It’s only 21 pages and not even in full page form as its written more like a poem than a typical book. Whats more is that its a free download in iBooks, available as a free PDF download, or read to you in a Youtube video below. So, you really have no excuse not to check it out! Actually, I recommend reading or listening to it once a weekly as an affirmation of principles to live by and make the world a better place. Great way to spend 15-20 minutes of your day!

Train Hard. Be Buddha. Namaste.

Beauty and the Beast Friday! Well depending on how you view Karen the “Beauty” part may be up for debate. Today however, she was kind to me. No, I didn’t really enjoy doing 150 wall balls for time, but I did hit a new PR by :21s! Feeling great mentally and emotionally, but sore physically. Going to rest up for the remainder of the day evening!



Appropriate for an afternoon of rest on a Beast Friday. Especially after two PR’s! An oldie, but a goodie with a really cool video too!
