  1. Have you ever thought about having Jim Wendler on your podcast? He is the creator of the 5-3-1 Workouts and written 3 books. You two think a whole lot alike as far as discipline goes.

  2. Jocko podcast makes nightshift bearable and maintains motivation to use the gym after work.

    Discipline. Strength. Unyielding Will.

    Troop supply is one of the major topics in roman military research an a reason for the very quick setup of a good infrastructure in the conquered territories connecting the hinterland with its resources to the frontline-areas.

    I love you podcast and books an you’re pretty much the reason why I got into BJJ two months ago. GETTING AFTER IT. Thanks
