So I was bumping around Facebook yesterday and one of my friends posted up a picture and link to The Bacon Explosion. Now, as a good, red-blooded American male, there are a couple of things that I hold sacred:

1. Bacon.

2. Doing things with over-the-top dominance.

This is pretty much the pinnacle of both.

I’ve been thinking about this post for quite a while. The writing of it has come in fits and starts. I’ve had the skeleton written for over a month and the ideas that I wanted to flesh out have been bouncing around in my head for probably six. Over and over again I find that the deeper I think about this subject means the further into the rabbit hole I go and the more I want to refine and tweak my message. However, there’s a point when you just have to stop tweaking and give something wings, and the life of this post has reached that point.

Warning: What you’re about to read will fly in the face of our current culture. It is not the popular opinion. It is not being written to make me popular with the masses. If you’re easily offended, then just stop now and save yourself the aggravation.

As such, one of the things I’ve been wanting to do lately with this blog is to have a weekly list of off-the-cuff thoughts and things that I’m getting into lately.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend a seminar with three great strength coaches, Scott Caulfield, Joe Hashey, and James “Smitty” Smith of the Diesel Crew. In addition to picking up a bunch of great little tips and tricks from some of the best minds in the business, it was also great to connect and network with them and some other great coaches. I don’t know about your industry, but in the strength and conditioning world it’s a lot of fun to go to these seminars and hang out with some like-minded people.

Welcome to another edition of Rock My World Wednesday! Since it’s a holiday week, I’m going to go the traditional route and theme this week’s edition for Thanksgiving. Yeah, I’m going to be that guy.

Our society is an obsessed one. Whether it’s celebrity lifestyles, the latest electronic gadget, or something related to health, we seem unable to have a passing interest. Instead it becomes the focal point of our lives and dominates both our conversations and the airwaves. Seriously, does it really affect your life that the Prince of England is getting married? Let alone where the marriage will take place and WHAT HE’S WEARING? That stuff makes me sick. I guess when life is too easy you can spend time gossiping and waxing poetic over someone else’s wedding rather than, you know, figuring out how to keep your kids warm and EATING.
