Weekly Workout For Men: Learn the Power Clean, one of the best movements for your traps muscles

Weekly Workout For Men: Learn the Power Clean, one of the best movements for your traps muscles

I first learned of Power Cleans, Hang Cleans and CrossFit when I had stumbled across a video of Annie Thorisdottir performing a workout called DT.

“DT” is by definition:

5 Rounds For Time

This workout is a Hero WOD (“Workout of the Day”), done in memory of a fallen soldier, Law Enforcement or Fireman. DT is done in honor of US Air Force SSgt Timothy P. Davis, 28, who was killed on Feburary, 20 2009 supporting operations in OEF when his vehicle was struck by an IED.

Weekly Workout For Men: Get fit Like Jason Bourne

Weekly Workout For Men: Get fit Like Jason Bourne

“At this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking.”

I remember reading the book “The Bourne Identity” when I was going through Strike Intelligence training at NMITC in Dam Neck Virginia.

I couldn’t put it down, and I wanted to be Jason Bourne, in fact, I think every man at some point in his life has wanted to be Jason Bourne.

Maybe, I’m wrong. It happens from time to time.

Slaying Dragons: A Manifesto for the men of the modern times

Slaying Dragons: A Manifesto for the men of the modern times

I have been thinking about this topic for about a week or so now.

I got to really digging in and asking myself a question: “If I could go back eight years to that day I finally woke up from the slumber I was in and finally make a change, what are the things that I would want to tell every man?”

I’m not a perfect man, and I never will be this side of life. However, I have learned a lot of things in the past few years that I see so many men still struggle with. Not only do they struggle with them, but they don’t really know what to do.

I want to break it down for men, so they at least have a path that they can walk. Once again, it might not be an exact route, or a perfect route, but it is at least a guiding light.

Why being a father is the greatest and most important role a man can have in his life: Raising strong, brave and self sufficient kids

Why being a father is the greatest and most important role a man can have in his life: Raising strong, brave and self sufficient kids

I fail as a father a lot…

In fact most of the time, I have no clue what I’m doing, but I just keep trying to figure it out the best that I can.

No one gives a father a manual on exactly what to do, or what it’s going to be like when you hold your child in your arms for the first time. Or what to do when they cry for the first time.

However, as a man, I want to see other men raise strong, brave and confident kids, and it pains me so much when I see kids neglected, mistreated, ignored and unloved. It breaks my heart.

As men, we are to be the best things in our kids life, the heroes that they deserve to look up to. Sure, we might not have all the answers or be one hundred percent perfect one hundred percent of the time, but we do need to make our best effort.

The 53 books every man must read before they turn 40

The 53 books every man must read before they turn 40

I love to read… there is no doubt about that, and in doing so, I start telling others about books that I have read. I don’t like to hoard knowledge, and if I think something is worth passing on, I do it.

On this website there are several places that you can find links to great books that I recommend, but I felt like there needed to be a list that was more definitive especially for the type of men that read this blog and listen to the podcast.

Men of substance, wisdom and maturity, need to read things that are going to give them more of that, and allow them to continue having a mind of their own and even challenge their own lines of thought.

In fact, the type of men that the 360 Man Project are attracting are highly driven men that want to grow in knowledge and be able to apply it at some point in life.

The best way to be a man is to not be afraid to be the one you were made to be

The best way to be a man is to not be afraid to be the one you were made to be

Growing up my Dad taught me that it was OK to be a man.

More specifically, he taught me:

  • It’s ok to speak my mind

  • It’s ok to get in a fight

  • It’s ok to get in trouble

  • It’s ok to fail or lose

  • I don’t have to apologize

  • Sometimes things suck, learn to work through it

  • Don’t listen and do what others tell you to do just because they told you

  • Question everything

  • ……

Adventure is at the heart of Men: Why men need to get back to taking risks, and living wild

Adventure is at the heart of Men: Why men need to get back to taking risks, and living wild

Have you ever seen a Lion in a cage at the zoo?

What have you noticed about it, what did you observe?

I’ll tell you what I noticed…

I observed a wild animal that looked defeated. He was no longer able to be what he was made to be. He had lost his masculinity, the very essence of what makes him a lion. He was still a lion, and still capable of destroying anything that came in the cage, but, his aura and confidence had wain.

Instead of being able to hunt and stalk (yes, male lions hunt too), his food was given to him. He was no longer able to compete to be the king of the pride, so he never really knows if he has what it takes. He doesn’t get to play a game of chess with his prey.

All the things that make him a lion are suppressed, or gone for good.
