Life (74)


Where is Your Focus?

Ever since I was a little boy, I struggled with finding the balance in life because once I set my mind upon a thing, it was all I would focus on.

Yes, I had what would be called laser like focus.  It can be great but then again, all weaknesses will come from a strength.

Yet, in life, focus is paramount to your energy levels and staying the course.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I shine the light on where your focus is and how you can adjust it.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

Client of the Week: Priya

Priya trained with us a few years back at Newell Strength.  She was a pleasure to have around.

Over time however, the commute won out and she took a break.

In that couple year break, she was in a bad motorcycle accident which her and her husband Karthik, were lucky to survive.

One of the collateral damages from that accident was a bad knee injury, which kept her from her hobby and passion of dancing for far too long.

So, she decided she needed to make strength training a permanent part of her life.  Here she is in her own words, give a listen and take some inspiration from her

 

Keep it up Priya!

Your Strategic Energy Map

14 or 15 years ago, I remember a conversation I had with an old girlfriend. Actually, it was an observation she made about me.

She said, ‘I don’t understand how you always have so much energy, what’s the secret?’

And she didn’t mean I had obnoxious over the top, cracked-out energy.  She meant she could feel my positive vibes and passion for what I was doing in life.

The secret was that I knew what I was passionate about and I was already checking the box on a lot of energy boosting activities through my dedication to physical fitness.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I give you a strategic energy map that will change your life if you apply it.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

Knees on the Hands

Two Saturdays ago, we had our normal Saturday morning workout, just me and the guys. It was a small turnout because of the Thanksgiving weekend, but we had fun nonetheless.

Well, coming in to the last quadplex (four exercises in a row cluster), I started with heavy goblet squats using the 95 pound dumbbell for 25 reps. Insanely heavy? No, but when you add in 25 reps, your heart gets movin!

And then there were 3 other exercises to sprinkle behind that. After the final set, I put my hands on my knees, a big NO-NO in my book. I call people out on it, especially our athletes. So, I was glad that my man Jeff called me out; we both had a good chuckle over it!

Yes, you are going to get tired in your workouts and in life, but the keeping the hands off the knees is more of a mentality, not showing anyone your fatigued and not buying into the complaints of the brain when you do get tired.

Remember, the brain will give out long before the body needs to, if we allow it.

P.S-We are having our annual Festivus party on the 15th of December. It’s a great event, it’s BYOB and Potluck, kids are more than welcome (hopefully we will be able to get the live reindeer again this year). All donations will be going to Coach Gina and her kids for the holiday season because as you may or may not know, their house burned down a little over a month ago….be grateful for the little things.




The Darkness Will Lead to the Light

In last week’s Friday episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I made a few important highlights that I have come to know through self-reflection throughout my life.

If you want something from others, you must give it first.  If you seek more attention from your spouse, give him or her more attention.  Life isn’t about getting, it’s about giving. You can only love to the degree that you love yourself first.

Secondly, the flaws we see in others are the flaws we most dislike about ourselves.  If you snap when your partner keeps checking their phone when you are trying to talk to them, then maybe, just maybe, you don’t like your inability to be present in the moment.  Think about it.

Use these two points for some self-reflection the next few days, see what you come up with.

The Story of the Mexican Fisherman

I first heard the story of the Mexican Fisherman back in 2008.  That was at a point when I wanted so badly to ‘make it’, that I was willing to do whatever it took.

Granted, I was ten years younger, but the story resonated with me, even back then.

In case you have never heard it before, in today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I retell the story with some key insights that’ll help to make your life just a little more joyful today.  You can take a listen over here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

P.S-We are having our first ever deadlift championships on Dec. the 15th.  This is for a great cause, another way for NS to raise money for Rebecca Piro, the 1st grader in my nephews class that has stage 4 kidney cancer.  You can find out more about the contest here (novices are welcome!): www.newellstrength.com/deadlift




Happy Thanksgiving You Turkey

Today is a day to celebrate.

And in the odd chance that you check your email today, I wanted to give you one message to ponder as you show gratitude for your life today.

Think about it.

What Do You Want From Life?

I recall a date I had with my grandfather, Leo, shortly after graduating from college.

We went out for pizza at a local joint and I shared with him that I was feeling lost, not really knowing what my life was supposed to be now that I was officially done with school.

Which lead down the path of pondering what I really wanted out of life.

This question has always been a beacon of light for me as it keeps me ‘on track’.

In today’s episode, I break down how you can figure out what it is that you want out of life.

How To Increase Your Confidence

I started lifting weights back in 1995 because of high school football.  I began to take it seriously in 1997 because of a lack of confidence.

I wanted to feel better, to be bigger and stronger and I hoped that it would carry over to other areas of my life.

The plan worked and continues to work.

But, you don’t need to be an iron addict to increase your confidence.

Something I do every single night is called ‘strategic confidence’.

I write down my 3 big wins for the day.  They are usually not these HUGE things, they are small things that I would probably overlook if I didn’t take a few minutes to think about them.

Your brain is hardwired for the negative, all brains are.  Confidence is one of your two greatest assets that you must cultivate and protect.

Begin by focusing on 1-3 wins each night or morning.

It’s really that simple.
