If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Rant and Tip for May 30, 2012

Quote: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

OK I know it sounds a little cliché but, it really applies to me today and for the past week. I did not do as well as hope at the World IPF Bench Press meet and I was really disappointed in my performance. With that said I had a great experience and learned a lot. My son is really funny, when I called home to let my children know how I did, he said to me “That’s OK dad you just need to train harder for next time.” Funny and smart that’s my boy. It is now time to get back to training hard and to the National Bench Press meet in Palm Springs California. The coaches we very supportive and gave me a lot of advice. I just need to apply it now.

How have you been doing with your diet and exercise plan? If not well then the quote above is good for you as well. We all have moments where we do not succeed right away but as the quote says “Try Try again” One of the things I took away from the meet is that, like in any sport if you miss a pop fly, or the put does not go in, you need to take the next hole or play as a new game all together. We need to forget about the last event we perceive as a failure and move on. The goes for all of in regards to diet and exercise. If we fail in eating something not on plan then you need to move on and continue to make right choices after that. Your exercise schedule needs to be set, however if you miss a day, just be more diligent the next scheduled workout or better yet, get it in later in the day.

Have a great workout!

Tip: Watch your form in all exercises and make sure it is tight.


  1. There is no failure only feedback.

    The only time you fail is when you quit.

    1. I totally agree baxtermob!

      I am of the mind set that I need to share my negative experiences as well as my successes with my readers. I am human like everyone else and want to let everyone know what can be achieved with determination and perseverance.
