SWIPE FOR FULL WORKOUT AND SAVE THIS POST FOR YOUR NEXT GYM SESSION!! Remember the Herb Brooks saying, "The legs feed the wolf." If you want to be a strong and fit person you have to work the entire body. 💪🏽💪🏽Working out the legs may seem boring. Let your mind guide you through this work out. 🙇🏻‍♂️**It is important to not rest the bar on the back of your neck when doing squat exercises. Instead, the bar should be shifted down slightly so that it is rested comfortably on the back of your shoulders.  _ Good Morning into Squat  5x8 Don’t overdo it on the weight. One step at a time. With knees slightly bent, lean forward and push your  butt out behind you (pretend you are doing a curl with your back and tighten your core.) Your back should not be parallel to the floor. From that position go into a squat. Reverse the movement on the way up. Great way to strengthen the lower back/legs and warmup. _ Box Squats  5x8 Just like a regular squat. Slowly lower yourself on to the box, pause, then explode upward. This allows you to work on explosive movement.  _ Hip Thrusts 5x12 Rest the bar across your hips. At the top of the movement your shins should be perpendicular to the floor and your upper legs should be parallel to the floor. Great for your glutes and quads. _ Calf Raises 5x20  Simple exercise. Pick a weight where you're going to feel the burn by the last few reps in the set.  _ Leg extensions 5x20 Pick a weight where you're going to feel the burn by the last few reps in the set.  _ Embrace the pain. Feel the burn. SEE RESULTS. Keep working grasshoppers!!! Tag me in a video of you doing my workouts for a shoutout! Tell me your fitness goals in the comments!

In my life, I have never said to myself, “He/She is doing that and I wish I could do that.” If someone else can do something, I know that I can do it too. At 60 years old, I continue to challenge myself to try new things and push myself to new limits. I don’t “wish” I could do something, I do what it takes to get it done. No excuses. No limits. Just action. • • • • • #truegritlife #motivationmonday #monday #mondaymotivation #motivation #motivationalspeaker #inspiration #nhl #nyr #hockey #believe #farm #ontario #canada #america #achieve #goals #fitfam #workout #love #loveyourself #warrior #athlete

Alright grasshoppers!! HIIT Workout today. High Intensity Interval Training is great for burning calories and getting a full body workout. This is the best thing you can incorporate into your workouts for heart health, quick fat shredding, and full body toning.  For each workout movement:  30 seconds of work x 30 seconds of rest  Continuous for 10 minutes each (40 minute total) _ Ball Slams Pick a weight that is challenging for you so that at the end of 30 seconds you’re breathing heavy. _ Ball Slams to Pushup This forces you to engage your core. It works your chest shoulders and arms.  _ Weighted Squats You can use a kettle bell, weighted ball or plate. Again, at the end of 30 seconds that heart better be pumping hard.  _ Sled Pull to Push At this point you should have a good sweat going and your arms and back will be burning with the rope pull.  Really dig in on the sled push. You are on the last exercise and now your mind has to control your body. Leave the gym knowing that you got everything out of each exercise. **Finish up with about 10 minutes of Ab Work _ This should be a hard work out but you will feel mentally stronger when you’re done. • • • • • #workoutwednesday #wednesday #truegritlife #tomlaidlaw #beastmode #hiit #hiitworkout #hiitlife #workout #fitspo #fitfam #fitspiration #inspiration #strength #lifestyle #health #healthylifestyle #hockey #explosiveness #nhl #nyr #hockeyworkout #skate #love #loveyourself #bodygoals #body #mindbody
I had a great time yesterday at Madison Square Garden. The New York Rangers and USA hockey held the 2018 coaching certification program for 400 coaches from the Tri-State Area. We had a great discussion about how coaches can make a difference in a young person’s life.  Keep in mind: It’s okay for your athletes to struggle when attempting a new drill. If designed properly, and through positive encouragement and continued practice provided by a good coach, that same athlete will become a master of this drill. Coaches should feel confident that pushing their athletes outside of their comfort zone, instead of limiting them to a fear of failing, will ultimately lead to success. Small wins like this, lead to the confidence of the athlete and the license for the coach to continue to try new things throughout the season.  This principle also applies to the business world. Remember, as a leader in business, you are also considered a coach. If you apply this same concept to your employees, you WILL find success. - • • • • • #mondaymotivation #truegritlife #monday #motivation #mondaymood #strength #hockey #hockeycoach #nhl #nyr #believe #inspiration #inspire #motivate #coach #coaching #motivationalspeaker #msg #ice #skate #practice #neverquit #love #loveyourself #sports

Even on the golf course we go all out!!! Feel Good Friday today and I am reflecting on the benefit of meeting new people. Hearing new stories and broadening relationships keeps the mind stimulated, and your network large. There’s so much to learn from others, so much to do for others, and many good times spent with others. So head out on the course with friends old and new to build and maintain the relationships in your life. Appreciate each and every one of them. _ #truegritlife #fellgoodfriday #golf #beastmode #life #lifestyle #workout #work #motivation #inspiration #blueshirts #nhl #nyr #hockey #motivationalspeaker #love #loveyourself #goals #dreams #relationships #networking

Workout Wednesday everyone! Today we go over a brutal, but effective chest day. We are putting on the big boy pants. Fewer reps, higher weight. Choose a weight that will result in near failure by the last rep in each set. _ Standing Cable Flyes 5x8-10  Head and chest up. Pretend you are reaching around a tree.  _ Dumbbell Bench Press 5x8-10 reps Bring the weight down at an angle in which your triceps are parallel to the floor.  _ Incline Bench Flyes 5x8-10 reps Bench at a 45 degree angle. Again bring the weight down at an angle in which your triceps are parallel to the floor and reach up and around the tree.  _ Incline Bench Press  5x8-10 reps Bench at a 45 degree angle, bring weight down at an angle in which your triceps are parallel to the floor.  _ Dips 5x8-10 reps Dips are glorious. They can be used for shoulders, arms and chest.  On chest days lean forward on the way down.  _ Leave your feedback in the comments!
