Relentless Podcast

Have Fun at Work, Eliminate Fear Factors, and Posture Up

It’s time for Episode 12 of the Relentless: Real People, Real Results, Real World podcast:


State of Relentless: 

  • Press: Train along with our public Spartan Training workouts via Last week? Bodyweight manipulation. This week? Building race volume.
  • Video: Strength Authority Pam Leary takes you through a 1-minute bodyweight workout video aka her “Minute of Manipulation”.
  • Podcast: The Tony Federico podcast interview talking about reversing rock bottom, properly dosing your exercise, and keeping it real.
  • Next up on the interview front: Marissa Pellegrino aka “Relentless Riss”.

Relentless Main Event: 

  • Addressing your work/life balance, incorporating fun into your everyday, and appreciating the long-term.
  • Using the examples of exercise, nutrition, and your professional life to break down why not having fun is a short-term, losing strategy. (Why do diets usually fail?)
  • Two strategies to have more fun:
    • Literally do it. Get creative and find ways within your “work and workouts” to incorporate it.
    • For the brutally hard or mundane tasks that are inevitable, change your perspective. Focus on how these activities are benefiting you – that can be fun!
    • (Bonus #3) Change what you’re doing altogether if 1 & 2 are impossible.

Relentless Actions: 

  • Mind: Eliminate fear factors by addressing them and repping them over and over again prior to your “race day”, whether that be a Spartan Race or work presentation.
  • Body: Focus on your posture – especially those of you with desk jobs. Put a piece of tape on your desk chair and perform the postural exercise described on the podcast every time you sit down.
  • Business: Become more proactive and less reactive.
