1. We are a collection of what we do. The thought processes and actions we take on a daily basis. Negative thoughts lead to negative postures.

2. It doesn’t have to be “hard” to get results.

3. It’s all about the fundamentals

In this episode we talk with Tim Anderson of Original Strength. Tim talks about how injuries and being fed up with pain led him to return back to basics and realize the importance of building the fundamentals to become “bulletproof.” He reminds us that we are a collection of what we do, the daily habits, mindsets and processes and that if we want change, we’ve got to adjust what we do both physically and mentally on a daily basis.

Tim makes some great points about the fact that we are designed to move and be strong throughout our lives and that our workouts can and should help us achieve that. That through simple movements even we can achieve huge results!
