295 to the parking garage X 5 (technically 3 clean, @nealozier21 may have given me the "all you" spot for 2). But I will take it.

Writing this today on 9/11 with a very heavy heart. These are two of my brothers, and we did a track workout. I remember I was young with different priorities 18 years ago on this day. I remember I still drank, didn't have my driver's license yet from a DUI I got when I was 17, and was working full time for my dad's plumbing, heating, and electric company. Up to that point in my life I had experienced very little tragedy and loss. Watching the feed on Instagram and listening to the stories today, 18 years later, it hits me harder than it ever has. Now, having experienced major loss and tragedy and walking along side love ones who have, I can hardly hold tears back listening to the real and raw stories from that day. The compassion I feel for all that have lost loved ones, and for those that have sacrificed on the battlefield from war is real... so real. So today I want to truly say thank you to the service members and to all that have lost. Thank you to the brothers and sisters that lost siblings I am sorry and stand with you in sorrow. To the wife and husband that has to relive the phone call 18 years later that is as real as it was then, I am sorry and pray for peace that holds no understanding. And to the mother and father that will never again here on Earth get to smell their kids hair as I do when I hug my kids I am so so sorry and will never forget or take for granted my freedoms. I know today there is an ongoing daily battle that is fought for far too many of our brothers and sisters that never ceases, and rarely let's up, for those that are living through the loss of their loved ones. May God bless you all.

Flashback Friday! Both pics were taken when I was a full time plumber. The one on the left was 2006, and the one on the right that haters will say is photoshopped is 2010 after I won the 2010 spokesmodel contest. I didn't hardly lift at all on the first, and then the second was little to no prep, just solid training, nutrition, and good old fashion manual labor SON! ...................................... You might not know that I was a (, , and ) for 15 years before fitness. Funny thing is I got on a program in 2001, and stuck to that plan on and off for the next 10 years because it worked! No Facebook or Instagram in those days, just trial and error. ........................................ Be careful when falling into the quick fixes and fast fitness solutions. Really all it takes is a simple program, for complicated people. The good news is that social media has finally evolved enough that you can see through the fake people and lies if you simply do a little research. So stay steady and don't be afraid to get your hands dirty and roll up your sleeves on that steady grind. Phot cred: @neveuxstudios @bodybuildingcom
