- Stay the course.
- Make every day a win.
Fitness is a bit of an amorphous target. It’s generic. Does it mean cardiovascular fitness? Weight loss? Relative strength? Absolute strength? Weight deadlifted? Flexibility measured? Workout done in x number of minutes?
Is your goal a fitness goal? Or are you just trying out a new training method?
Most people I work with — at least the “regular” people with day jobs — want to be more fit. It would always be nice to be skinnier, stronger, leaner, toner, healthier, smarter, more muscular, more patient, more even-keeled, less anxious, less depressed, less neurotic, less unstable.
But if you want these things, we have to talk about goal setting.
Are you one of those people who likes to do overhead barbell pressing… but has no business pressing a barbell overhead?
How do you get your arms overhead? How do your clients get their arms overhead? Do you have the range of motion to do it safely? Or are you just overloading your back and irritating your shoulders?
I don’t want to sit here and pretend to tell you that I have the magic answer. It doesn’t work like that.
What I CAN offer you, however, is some insight on some of the things that have seemed to work for me… even the things that are a little counterintuitive.
Today we’ll discuss some things that have helped my clients safely perform overhead work.

There are a wide range of things that can help you get the fitter, healthier, and sexier body that YOU want. Supplements generally yield much less benefit than, say, a consistent diet and proper exercise.
But some supplements can make a lot of things better. I’ll list off my recommendations along with a short explanation of what they are and why I recommend them.
