I got yo’ six homeboy!

I come in peace, I didn’t bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you f#ck with me, I’ll kill you all.

Marine General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders

Without a doubt, Roland LANCE Cantu is a one of kind friend.  I have had the privilege of knowing Lance for as long as I have known Jeremy, 13+ years!  But because Lance is the type of person he is it’s hard to contain him in one place for too long.  Out of High School Lance joined the Marines, serving multiple tours in Iraq as well as being his teams leader.  That is what Lance is, a born leader!  Whether it’s playing Qb for the football team, leading soldiers in to war, leading the pack in a Crossfit workout, or going downtown to get in some trouble…. Lance will ALWAYS be up in the front.  When we finally got Lance out of the Marines he moved to Austin to be apart of Crossfit Central for roughly 2 years, and what a exciting, and memorable 2 years it was…then the itch came back and Lance was gone.  I got to see Lance when we were at the Underground Strength Certification up in Dirty Jersey a few months back and it was only for a couple of hours but to be honest it was like he had been with us the entire time..didn’t miss a beat.  But….just like that, the morning came and Lance was gone.  So if you ever get the chance to meet Lance and hang out with him for a bit, take advantage of it because you won’t regret it…oh, and wear a seat belt, because you never know what the night has in store for you!

Here are the South Central Regional workouts I will be doing this weekend.  Workout 1 and 2 will be done on Saturday.  Workouts 3 and 4 will be done on Sunday.  As of right now I’m unsure of the break I will get in between workouts, but to be honest with you… I wish we were doing all 4 on Saturday with a few extras on Sunday, but that’s just me!  So if your feeling froggy give these workouts a shot and tell me how you do.  I have already done each workout in my head multiple times and will continue to visualize my effort to each one until it’s GO TIME.

Visualization Techniques

Visualization is creating a mental picture of something. Visualization is important because it makes the future become more clear. Seeing yourself already achieving your goal makes your brain believe that attaining that goal is possible. Focusing consistently on any given goal will enable you to manifest it far sooner than if you didn’t focus on it at all. Focus brings the goal closer to you.

Have you attempted visualizing, but find it difficult or impossible? Try this. Pick up a photo and study it closely; then close your eyes and tell me what you see. If you see anything resembling the picture, you are visualizing. It’s that simple. If this doesn’t work, or if you want to improve your visualization skills, take the same picture and while looking at it, close your eyes and open your eyes and close your eyes again. Do this as many times as possible for a few minutes. Soon you’ll be seeing the picture, but you won’t know if your eyes are open or closed — and you will be visualizing better than before. Practice this technique often. You can focus on anything: people’s faces, pictures, buttons. Get creative and have fun with it.

Additional Visualization Tips

§ When visualizing, it’s important to view the action from the first person — that is, see yourself achieving your goal through your own eyes, rather than watching yourself from the outside. This method is very powerful because this is the way you already see and experience everything.

§ Less powerful is viewing your goal from the third-person perspective, seeing yourself achieving the goal as if you were watching a movie. It still works, but it’s not as effective as viewing from the first-person perspective.

§ Make visualization fun — the more real your image is, the better this works. Make the image not just a still picture, but a full-length movie staring you. Replay it over and over, seeing yourself as the hero, achieving your goal. Create background music, pump it up, make it feel real, and have fun with it. This is how you want to see your goal — in vibrant Technicolor on an IMAX screen — not in dim, dreary, out-of-focus scenes shown on a shoebox-size theatre in the multiplex.

§ Your goal is a picture located somewhere in your mental image frame. When you close your eyes and see the image of your goal, determine where your mind is locating the picture: top, bottom, right, upper left, etc. Now, recall an important goal you have already accomplished, and find out where that goal is located in your mental image frame.

So now you have two goals in mind: one you’ve already achieved and one you want to achieve. Note every little detail about these goals: Where are they located? What are the colors of the images? Are they big, bright, and clear — or are they small, blurry, and distant?

How do these images feel to you? Does one make you feel happy, excited, and thrilled? Does the other make you feel depressed, wistful, etc.?

Once you’ve noted every detail about the two images, take the goal you have not yet achieved and give it the same qualities as the goal you have achieved. Make it bigger and brighter; move it to the same location as the image of the already-achieved goal; make it feel the same by inserting every detail. Adjusting your mental image of the current goal to mirror one you’ve already achieved makes your new goal seem easier and gives you the feeling that you have already achieved it.

Physically act out your goal in action moves. For example, with your eyes closed, envision yourself buying a new home, walking through every detail. First, you get on the phone and talk to your realtor; later you shake his or her hand (yes, pick up an actual phone and really shake a hand). Greet the realtor and explain, in detail, what you want your house to look like. Take them to the house you want to buy (yes, really walk in place and explain the details out loud, using lots of gestures). I know this seems silly, and you may feel like a kid playacting, but this is a great visualization technique, not to mention a great stress reliever. Go through all the motions and experiences, as if they were really happening. Notice your emotions, and have fun with this!

Allow yourself 10 to 30 minutes every day or every other day for visualizing your goal. Set aside time to rest and remove yourself from everything else going on. Find a quiet, uninterrupted area to perform these techniques. Remember, the more you focus on your goals, the sooner you will achieve them.
