Jamie Wilson: Kentucky Strong
This sixteen minute documentary is pretty inspiring. I love watching and reading stories of ordinary people overcoming extraordinary obstacles to become great and this is no exception. Jamie Wilson is fighting ulcerative colitis for which there is no cure. Even the medication for the disease attacks his other internal organs but Jamie is determined to not go quietly into the night. At the end of it all, you’ll know he was here! Check out Jamie Wilson: Kentucky Strong by following this link. You should also follow him on Instagram and Facebook for constant motivation.
Your Climate Controlled Environment is Killing You
Highland Games competitor, Strongman, grip athlete John Stepien decided to train in the snow a few weeks ago which relates to this podcast on the Wim Hoff Method from the Art of Manliness. The Wim Hoff Method makes some pretty amazing claims including helping to burn body fat simply by spending a little more time in the cold and learning to control your shiver reflex. Check out the entire podcast here . . . and if you enjoyed that, you’ll love this next one . . .
Take Hold of the Battle Axe
This is a repost of one of my favorite articles. It’s actually a repost of some comments on the Animal Pak Forvm (no I did not misspell that) from Machine, the original face of the famous Animal brand. I think it ties in quite well with the Wim Hoff podcast above and answers another reason why I returned to martial arts training. Check it out here. Relax, it’s a short read.
