"Wesley (Jim) Kipp" 5 Time Bench Press National Champion

Quote: Hard work beats talent, when talent does not work hard! by Tim Notke

   Tim was a High School basketball coach. He is credited with the quote above. Having helped coach some of my children's recreation sports teams I have seen this often. Some really talented kids, who just did not want to work hard. 

    I look at myself this way currently, I have been called a talented lifter and when I hear this I think to myself, OK, now I just have to work hard.

I have been very fortunate to have been on 4 USA Powerlifting World teams. I have won one World Championship and been fortunate to have acquired one World Record in my Wife’s home country of Brazil. I am a Masters 2 lifter and compete in both Masters and Open divisions. 
   Well I am working hard and I am training to bring home the Gold Medal, my second World Championship next May in Lithuania. I will be competing in the International Powerlifting World Bench-press Championships 2017. With talent and hard work I know I can bring home the gold and maybe even set another World Record.  

    The fact that most people never get a chance to represent their country in an athletic event is not lost on me. I feel very blessed.

    Traveling as part of  USA Powerliftings World Team can get very expensive. This is an amateur sport and there is no money to win. Just the feeling you get when you stand on that platform with the National Anthem playing.

    I was talking to my neighbor Tim, and he put together a YouTube Video that I will share with you all.

Advice is what we ask for when?

"Advice is what we ask for when, we already know the answer but wish we didn't"
by: Erica Mann Jong  

It has been a while since I have written and it is time I started again. I actually find it therapeutic and it allows me to stay focused on my own goals as I try to help motivate you to yours.

If you go to my page "Who is Jim Kipp you will notice that I was not always a fit man. I was overweight and out of shape and was even taking medication to control high blood pressure and my doc wanted to put me on cholesterol meds.


This brings me to the quote of the day.


Many times I had asked advice about getting back in to a physical condition that was healthy. The truth of the matter is I did already know the answer. EAT HEALTHIER and EXERCISE. I remember when I finally took control of my life and decided I had, had enough of this out of shape unhealthy lifestyle. I made the decision to get healthy, no one made that decision for me and I knew what I had to do. So I did it. I looked into different types of diets and decided what diet lifestyle I wanted to lead.

Now I live it.


Too many people look at the word "DIET" as a temporary thing. However when scientist look at ancient cultures and discuss the "diet" of people of the past they are not talking about a temporary thing. They are talking about their eating habits and life style. THIS is how you need to look at your NEW eating habits.


Make the decision to get healthy and make it a lifestyle change and you will be successful.


Tip: One thing you can do and with today's technology is to write down everything you eat, and I mean everything you put in your mouth including fluids. Then each night take a look and decide what you can do better.


I hope to continue blogging again.
