My Workout Play List


 So over the past few years I have burned myself out on music. Even though I am a musician and love playing in a band, I ebb and flow with my A.D.D. that is my taste in music. For example, at this point in my life I pretty much listen to Cuban and 60's Jazz along with a Nigerian afro beat music. I never said it made sense it just what seems to hit my pallet. Here is the dichotomy, my workout music! I have over the past year carefully curated a mix of everything that pushes me in the gym and gives the drive to do just a bit more. I will give the disclaimer that its not for everyone and in no means do I expect anyone out there to understand just how random it is. If you are easy offended then I recommend this is not the playlist for you. If you are looking for a bit of extra motivation I hope you enjoy my mix! hammer down, stay consistent, and keep pushing.....

Resistance And The Fact Hard Things Really Never Get Any Easier





   
 So, staring at this kettle bell earlier this week I realized this will never get any easier. At the moment this came to mind,  I took into account that the point of all of this is not the path of least resistance rather a pathway of growth. Sure the workout I did was borderline misery, but did I feel accomplished after the fact? Absolutely!  

    This last year I have really tried to break the paradigm shift of realizing if something sucks I am most likely becoming better for it not just suffering. For example, take the stairs, yes it sucks but its great for your health. Read a book, not as easy as picking up your phone but more rewarding. Or, as the picture indicates..... Grab the kettle bell, sure it really blows but you will be stronger for it!
