What Is True Wealth?

Hippies often say things like “true wealth is health” or “wealth doesn’t lead to happiness”…

These hippies are kinda right but I could guarantee that they would prefer to be sitting in business class then economy.

In the world that we live in today money is an amplifier and is a tool to help people or improve your comfort levels within your life.

This may be from not stressing about finances or by being able to live in a more comfortable house.

Most people look at wealth as it taking more time, more hours and more effort to get there, this isn’t entirely true.

You can definitely set yourself up whilst working less but it will take a radical shift in multiple areas.

The areas that I talk about in this weeks podcast (link here) are:

  • Financial Education
  • Spiritual Education
  • Professional Education
  • Academic Education

It is too deep of a topic for me to delve into in writing so what I will encourage you to do is head over to I tunes or Podbean and check out the podcast where I go deep on it all

The BEST 6 Day Training Split

You may be ready to ‘up the ante’ and start smashing out a few extra days of training

Problem is though most people train wrong when they start randomly adding more and more

This can lead to burnout, injury or worst of all a lot of hard work for no results.

This video below is what I would call the perfect 6 day split (for normal but elite minded guys like us)..

You will learn:

  • What the optimal training structure looks like
  • Why we structure it this way
  • How to set it up so you can succeed long term
  • When to add cardio and when to avoid it
  • What you need to focus on in your training

Check it out..

This stuff is important if you want massive long term growth in your body, listen and apply

If you have any questions or need help with your training feel free to hit me up on Facebook or Instagram and I’ll do my best to help 🙂

Get Violently Fast With Upper Body Speed Sessions…

Speed kills.

We know as athletes, fighters and men wanting to become weapons speed is a necessary piece to the puzzle that we just can’t avoid….

So why do so many avoid it??? It’s HARD AF when done properly.

What the video above will do is hopefully convince you of why, how and when to use speed strength bench press session to take your body to a whole new level.

With everything from volume control, training your rate of force development and even to get a bunch of great quality volume the speed sessions that we do at Royale will help you.

Here is an example speed bench day that we would hit on a Saturday morning for you to follow along if you can’t make it to RF.

Warm Up:

Tri set of Rotator Cuff Work/Lat Pull Down/ Banded Tricep Ext 3×20

Overhead Ball Throw 4×5

BB Bench Press at 50% 1rm + 3 chains per side: 10×3 reps (change grips every 3 sets – Close, Normal, Wide)

Incline DB Bench 4×12 Superset with BB Row 4×8

Triset: 4 rounds – Laterall Raise x15/ DB Skull Crusher x15/ Hammer Curls x15

Finish with 100 Band Extensions and 100 Band Curls (light and in sets of at least 30-40)

The following week we would bench at 55% then the week after it would be 60% (then back to 50% again week 4 but with a new bar or set up)

Accessories change weekly or fortnightly but still aiming to hit the same weak points to always improve them.

I hope this helps 🙂

Happy Lifting!!

Bad Coffee Beans

Have you ever had a bad coffee?


For coffee snobs like us it can be very hard to find a tasty, full bodied and strong cuppa especially when we aren’t close to our favorite cafe or we are out on the road passing through a small town.


The funny thing is a coffee is just hot water filtered through grounded coffee beans


So how hard could it be to get it right?


Their are two parts to getting a coffee right…

  1. A well trained barista
  2. Good quality and fresh coffee beans

The best barista would have a hard time pleasing a coffee snob if his beans are average.


An average barista would be able to ‘out do’ a coffee master if their beans were awesome.


It is impossible to make something great with the first ingredient being average or worse


This sounds obvious when we break it down but how does this idea apply to the rest of our lives?


Where in your life are you trying to make great coffee with shitty beans?

Both Will Lose

When a conflict is happening neither side will feel that they are in the wrong


Even if one knows they are in the wrong they generally will defend their actions


It isn’t until both parties take full 100% (each) responsibility for what is going on and admitting that the other person is right that there can be a resolution


This is no easy feat to accomplish


It is the sole reason that wars break out, fights happen, arguments kick on for hours and why people hold grudges


Until you both see through each other eyes, no one wins the battle


Consider this next time someone doesn’t see eye to eye with you, they probably just want to be heard.

Where You Focus

“Where focus goes, energy flows”


You may have heard this quote in success based motivation videos or in a self help seminar and it is one of the truer sentences that I have come across.


When it comes to mastery of your body; do you focus on how far you have to go or how far you have come?


Do you focus on the fat you have or the fat you have lost?


Do you focus on the strength gains made or the difference between you and the guy who has been doing it for an extra decade?


Depending on which side of the experience you pick to focus on will give you a really good insight on why you’re stuck or why you are feeling the way you do about your progress.


You see when we focus on the negative side of things we always feel shitty about not being perfect, we can literally never win


When we focus on the success or the wins we seem to keep snowballing those wins and achieving more and more


“Where focus goes, energy flows”, remember this next time you’re stuck and you will be able to work how to get out of that plateau.

Addiction

When people think of addicts they think of the alcoholics, the drug users and the broke gambler who puts having a punt in front of saving for his house or being with his family


These people generally get put in the same box as the criminals, the street gangs and that weird guy that’s always walking around the streets… People either feel sorry for them or they avoid them completely

The sad thing is that we are all addicts


Addicted to our phone, work, Instagram, Facebook, food, caffeine, money, fitness, gaming and what ever else that you can think of.


We always need to be stimulated or we look for one of our ‘addictions’ to pass the time


Does the fact that we are addicted to our phones make us better than someone addicted to alcohol?


Comparing our vice against their vice will always make us feel better about whatever we are doing but the real question is
Why are we so addicted to doing this?


Is it for the little dopamine rush we get when someone likes our post?


Or


Do we actually rely on and feel comfortable with that mild anxiety from always being on and chasing more money?


These examples can go on forever but my challenge to myself and to you is a simple one


Stop judging other peoples addictions and trying to change them


Focus on yours and work out why you are doing it


If you don’t look now you may start looking for harsher and more exciting ways to distract yourself


This is what happened to the drug addict that you were judging last week..
