This email is coming from Mesa Arizona, and I’m still loving being in this area this time of year! The people, weather, and hiking are fantastic!
Here’s what I found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week.
My latest podcast –
AAJ 188: Priorities for your life
Having spent some years as a real estate investor (you might not have known that…) I’ve come across a lot of people who have their priorities pretty messed up, and I’m a huge believer in having your cake and eating it too.
This podcast is all about that, and making sure you’re prioritizing what’s really important, so you can get the most out of your life.
Super cool hike –
This hike is located right between Phoenix and Tucson, and is not for the faint of heart. That and you need to have some legit upper body strength.
Basically, it’s super fun, and you should find a way to do it, for sure!
What I’m eating –
Akita Sushi in Scottsdale AZ
So… this is an all you can eat sushi place, but before you start telling me how that’s nasty… THE SUSHI IS MADE TO ORDER!!
That’s right, it’s all you can eat sushi that is made to order. And get this, they charge you more if you leave any food on your plate.
For $23 you can load up on any sushi that you want, and it was DELICIOUS sushi!

Thought that I’ve been pondering –
High intensity vs. max intensity
I recently heard Ben Bergeron talking about this, and I think that it needs to be talked about more. But, don’t worry, I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
First – doing high intensity, functional movement that is constantly varied is the BEST way that I know of to get yourself into awesome shape.
Second – a lot of people who get into CrossFit (or HIIT) training easily slip into the thought that high intensity means, maximal intensity. And the truth is, that’s an easy way to get yourself overtrained, and/or injured.
Conclusion – make sure you’re working really hard when you’re working out, but make a distinction between what high intensity and maximal intensity is for you.
That’s what I have for you this week. Let me know if you have any questions. If you need anything, let me know.
