The 3 Questions of Fitness


But… before turning in I was reading one of our favorite books to Lilly, The Three Questions, by Jon J. Muth. It’s based on a story by Leo Tolstoy.

In this book a boy is seeking the answers to the 3 most important questions of life… The answers are quite moving but as I read them tonight I realized they are also the answers so many seek to the often overly
complex pursuit of fitness.

The 3 Questions:

  • - When is the best time to do things?
  • - Who is the most important one?
  • - What is the right thing to do?

After a moving journey the wise turtle tells him that he’s found the answers, quite simply:

“Remember then that there is only one important time, and that time is NOW. The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important
thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side. For these, my dear boy, are the answers to what is most important in this world.” ~ Wise Turtle

I agree… this is sage advice for a life well lived. But I think we can take it one layer deeper and look at it from the health and fitness perspective.

1. There is only ONE important time, and that is now.

To me that means that the ONLY important time in your pursuit of a healthier, stronger body is NOW. What you did yesterday, the mistake you made last night, none of it matters. Only what you choose NOW. Do you eat the salad or the cake?

Do you train or sit?

NOW is the ONLY time you have to change the path you are on. One NOW at a time. Do the RIGHT thing NOW and watch the NOW’s pile up into a massive result.

2. The MOST important ONE is the ONE you are with.

Yes, and you are the ONE you are always with. YOU are the ONE we most often forget, take for granted and ignore.

As they tell you on the airplanes, in the event of emergency place your oxygen mask on first. You are the most important one. If you let yourself down, you let your family and world down.

3. The most important thing to do is to do GOOD for the ONE.

You got this, right? Yeah, YOU are the ONE and the most important thing you can do is to do good (in this moment) for you, that ONE.

How self supporting is this loop, right? In THIS moment, you must do the RIGHT thing for you, the one. It’s that simple. Make the right choice and make the righter choice tomorrow.

Yes, these my dear Shawn, are the answers to the most important things you can do to transform your body and life.



Your Full Potential is…

How Much Muscle is Right For You?

M-U-S-C-L-E !!!

We love it. We admire it. We freak out at it… some times. But, as you know, muscle is more than image. Muscle is good for you. For your mind, your emotions, your overall health… it’s arguably the #1 factor in resisting the pressure of age.

Me… I am a BIG FAN of Muscle. But how much muscle is a personal choice. What’s right or realistic for you?


What’s amazing to some people is both of these physiques are the result of the SAME Training program…

The Hypertrophy MAX system.

We sometimes get the wrong idea about building muscle, even of how truly challenging it is. Hence the reason it is so coveted.  These two guys are both Pro’s in the chosen class of body-building. They are two smart and good men who have come together to put this HMAX system together.

Vince is an old (not that old but…) friend and a good man. Ben is one of the brightest bodybuilders ever. We’ve had him as a guest on The Kryptonite Report (Episode #30 – check it out) and he’s a smart, and very nice guy.
