I want today back

Posted in Uncategorized on November 9, 2010 by riseabovefitnessoc

So we are in Sweden today and it was a 20 hour drive from Hamburg Germany whihc included two ferry crossings. I woke up today really wanting to hit my workout hard. insted we barly made it to the show and everything was a rush job. I didnt see the daylight today cause it gets dark at 330 pm in Sweden. I was so motivated that I wrote up a killer workout plan for today and was determind to crush some of the people on the tour. Insted I sat on the bus all day long and tried to do a circuit with dips inbetween the bunks and pushups and situps but the movement of the bus ruined it and actually made me more pissed. growing stir crazy i wish i would have gone for a run when i got to the venue BUT its 20 below and snowing. Tomorrow I’ll make up for it. Everyone on the tour that wants to workout with me be warmed. You are fucked!

goodbye UK

Posted in Uncategorized on November 5, 2010 by riseabovefitnessoc

Tonight marks the end of the UK run of the Never say die tour and the end of the first week of the tour. All though I found it really hard to stay motivated to workout with the rain and gloom outside I managed to put together some serious circuits for those who are brave enough on this tour to train with me. Which leads me to this point. I love crushing people with workout. If I’m ever not in the mood to train I’ve made a habit of grabbing someone on the tour to torture. I guess I’m kind sick that way. I totally get stoked on watching someone struggle to get that last rep up and sweat like they never knew they could. So major props to those who have taken some moments out of their day to get fucked up (my way). See I dont drink or do drugs so my addiction is to training. With tons of drinking and smoking going on all around me on tour it easily pulls people. So I will pat myself on the back for pulling these few away fro the party to party with me. We will see if that changes in the next couple weeks. Welp goodbye UK. Thanks for the great shows. I had a blast and I hope you did to. One more thing though to those in the UK. Start exercising!

Finding the will to workout

Posted in Uncategorized on November 1, 2010 by riseabovefitnessoc

So I’m in England and for those who have been to England and know that it is constantly cold, damp and grey. Being from Southern California I am not used to those conditions and it sorta buries my soul. I know that people in other countries make fun of people in the states for being fat and I agree that our country has a huge over weight problem. With that being said though I also think that people in other parts of the world need to look in the mirror once and a while and realize that they themselves are grossly over weight. I dont know if going to other counties makes me bitterly patriotic or I’m always that way. Maybe it comes from fat people in other coutries eating fries with mayo asking me why people in North America are fat. I’ve just come to the conclusion that the world has a over weight problem. Good food is expensive and crap like fried chicken, fries and coca cola are cheaper than a bottle of water. It’s sad but I feel in a three hundred years humanity will not be able to walk anymore because or lack of exercise and horrible diets. We will all be floating around on layZ boy chairs. So that is my motivation to workout today. I simple took a walk around England and realized that humnity is in trouble.
