Great way to start the day today! 

Surrounded by a group of around 20 guys who show up early to not only take care of their bodies, but to do so in a fun brotherhood with a touch of competition and a good dose of humor.

Every day that I start in this manner follows in a positive direction. 

I am grateful beyond measure for so many things in my life, but this group is something that I hold close to my heart daily.  We push each other to get better physically, of course, but through the difficult workouts we also push each other to be the best possible version of ourselves in business, as a father, as a husband, as a friend and as a man. 

This is an environment like no other that I have created or been a part of and I am always thankful and grateful for each of the gentlemen who come regularly or who have been a part of the RRL.

Today, we hit a long grinding workout named for a Hero who gave it all.


Complete as many rounds as possible in 26 minutes of:
10 pull-ups
15 kettlebell swings, 1.5 pood
20 box jumps, 24-inch box

Post rounds completed to comments.

Canadian 1st Class Constable Jennifer Kovach of Guelph, Canada, died March 14, 2013, when her squad car was involved in a motor-vehicle accident while she was responding to a call for service. The 26-year-old fulfilled her dream of becoming a police officer serving her community and the Guelph Police Service for four years before her death. Kovach is survived by her mother, Gloria; father, Bill; brother, Brian; grandparents, Chester and Elvira Janicki; boyfriend, Kyle Schlosser; and many other friends and family.

Another day with the RRLanta in the Florida Keys

There is no friend like an old friend who has shared our morning days, no greeting like his welcome, no homage like his praise.

A text from Chip Lusk came through last night asking if I could work out again this morning.  What a pleasant surprise!

It is so much better and easier to workout with friends rather than to try to go alone.  I would have worked out this morning without Chip, however, getting together with Chip and his Uncle made the start to my day MUCH better.

Since we are still in the heart of a Tropical depression, we decided on a Deck of Cards, one of the best travel workouts.

Chip came up with this one:



clubs=v ups


joker=elevated pushups

We then went through a Gratitude Meditation exercise afterward for about 12 minutes and finished the morning off with a nice breakfast and coffee.
