Is It Daddy Samurai Time?

Is It Baby Time For The Samurai?

Baby

One of the pillars of this site regardless of the business it fosters is that it is still a platform for me to share my thoughts and views on life. People ask why I go so hard at what I do and I often say that for me I have no other option. My parents still work full-time jobs and I have no kids. This plays into 2 of my 3 main life goals. The first is to put myself in a position to live a life on my own professional terms. In turn this will lead to goal #2, me providing my parents the life I want them to have…the life they deserve for raising my brother and me right. The final goal is to be in a position to bring a child into this world who will at the very least have the quality of life growing up that I had. And to be fully completely honest, in a perfect world I’d have a child by now and hopefully it won’t be too long before that happens.

Understand that I’m not in a rush to start a family. I don’t have any internal clocks ticking and if I just wanted to pop kids out just for the sake of it I could. I’m single and perfectly fine with that. I see that life is directing me in a path different then where I thought I’d be at 32 approaching 33. Fortunately I still feel like I’m in my 20’s. Never the less I see the bigger picture of life and it most definitely includes kids. People that know me, over the years, have asked me if I have an issue with kids. It’s not that I have an issue with kids but I had an issue with seeing kids born into struggle that they didn’t ask for. I have an issue with kids born to losers that are male by physical make up but clearly are  not men. I can’t allow myself to do that. It would be a personal failure.

I wont get off track onto that topic but after a few conversations I felt the need to just express that. You blink an eye and years have flown by. I remember when my cousin Yasmine was born and was just a baby now she’s 1 year away from college and one of the best volley ball players on the East Coast might I add. Now I see my cousin raising her son and her request that I be god father of baby Jordan is something I take very serious.

Everything happens in its proper time but yes I do look forward to the day I have a little jr samurai or lady ninja is crawling around. All I do is for my family present and future….

SEALS

Every year I look to challenge my body with something different while aiming for new physical heights. This year I’ve been asked to try out this new program via the SEAL Training Academy. That’s SEAL as in NAVY SEAL. Created by former US Navy SEAL, Brett Hess and former University of Florida javelin thrower Doug Nelson, this is a platform with various fitness programs and event challenges designed for all civilian levels. It’s an ongoing system with new and updated content so the workouts never get stall.

With Civilian, Athlete and Military level programs there is no shortage of challenges. For many having to hit the gym presents an issue especially in the winter months, but if spring and summer sexiness and better health is the goal then now is the time to get on it. As I proceed though the program I’m starting at the bottom and will work through as the year progresses. Civilian level is based on all body weight routines so that means no extra weight equipment needed and they can be done from home. You work out 3 times a week on this level so I’ll have a day or two to inject activity of my own as I like 4-5 work out days a week.

The site interface is very simple and straight forward. As time passes new weekly programs are added. The exercises are listed with set and rep ranges and soon will be updated with hyper links to take you to demonstration vids. For the moment if you do come across some thing you are unfamiliar with all exercises can be Googled. After my stellar experiences with P90X, Insanity and Bulk Beast, the opportunity to test myself on a NAVAL level is something I can’t turn down. We all have our own fitness goals and reasons we pursue them. I would definitely give this program a solid try.

To help you with this I have a discount code here for a free week of the program. This way you can check it out for yourself. If you like it stay on for the full program.  Just check the link below to access the site and enter the code: 8XAHFP48MH
