This is the time of the year to beef up.

While most men hibernate and stay cuddled in their beds to get warm, you will be beasting it up in the garage or gym that you go to.

In order to do that though, you need to prepare yourself for the long haul. It’s going to be a grueling winter that is going to be punching you in the face. Not to mention, the holiday parties, with all the Christmas cakes and cookies that will be beckoning you.

5 Reasons why men like to be and stay average, and why they aren't asking the right questions

5 Reasons why men like to be and stay average, and why they aren't asking the right questions

There is a war on masculinity. There is a war.

It is fought by yourself (Maybe), and the invisible enemy, that is preventing you from being the man you are made to be. Some would call this enemy the devil, some would call it a shadow oligarch, and some would call it culture.

I define this enemy as anything that is preventing your soul from being spiritually free. It is anything that is preventing you from being the man that you were made to be. The one that you know you are.

If you think about that, then the whole dynamic of warfare is changed.

It is no longer seen as something that isn’t on your doorstep. It is no longer classified as a battle between trained american soldiers in Afghanistan and members of ISIS.

The battle is right in your living room, right under your nose.

If you don’t see it like that, then I’m going to be very truthful with you right now.

You are losing.

Why a man should choose wisdom over anything else: 7 practical proverbs that will help you live daily life

When I was a kid I heard a story about one of the wisest men in the world. The story is about a young man who is about to be king, and God asks him a question. He says, “ask for whatever you want and I will give it to you.” Solomon, knowing that he is young and inexperienced asks God to give him wisdom to govern his people.

God being pleased with this answer, grants wisdom to Solomon and also wealth, power, and prestige.

Weekly Workout for Men: 5 Ways to get a bigger, more muscular chest

Weekly Workout for Men: 5 Ways to get a bigger, more muscular chest

When I first started working out, I had no muscle definition, some serious back fat, and the love handles that were slowly turning into a spare tire…you know just in case I got a flat on the expressway.

I wasn’t really sure how to even begin structuring a workout routine. Besides, there are a million different programs out there right? Where would a person even begin?

What to do when you are not fulfilled at your job: 5 ways to find your purpose again

What to do when you are not fulfilled at your job: 5 ways to find your purpose again

Several years ago, I came into the den in my house, and wept. I had just got off work from my job on second shift, but really I was working much more than that. It was about 2:30 am. My life had come to a crossroads and I needed to figure out what was going on. I was 30 pounds overweight, had $55,000 in debt, and the job I was in was sucking every last amount of energy I had.

I had hit rock bottom in my life, for the third time.

  • The first time I was in High School and decided to put a gun in my mouth and end it all - (17 years old)

  • The second time was when I was in the Navy in the middle of the Pacific Ocean - (22 years old)

  • The third time was in the den of my house - (30 years old)

Maybe you have had these moments, or you are in one right now. Just know, I have been there, and the only way to get through it, is to surrender.

How to get comfortable being uncomfortable: 10 things a man can do today to develop grit and discipline

Get comfortable being uncomfortable….

50 Mile GoRuck Star course: After Action Report (AAR) - Advice on how to train, complete and get after it

For those of you who are not familiar with what a Star course is, it is by definition the culminating rucking exercise of Special Forces Selection. You show up with your ruck and you get a list of waypoints. You plot your route, then you start rucking: point to point, mile after mile.

For a lot of miles.

Most Special forces candidates don’t make selection. Not because they aren’t tough or didn’t quit, but because it is just a highly challenging, rigorous endeavor. Anyone who even attempts Selction is a badass in my mind. They are following their dreams and at least take a shot at them. 99% of the population wouldn’t even try.
