We often use addition to solve problems. But by focusing on subtraction we can improve outcomes at work, in our personal lives, and in society.
☀️ TLDR: The Workout Today is now Todayland - a weekly publication dedicated to the vital life. We are making this transition to more accurately reflect the true character of our vision and purpose. Dear readers, On January 1st, 2018, we launched The Workout Today...
Our life is defined less by what we do or where we go than it is by where we give our attention.
This workout is a challenge, so put in a strong effort even when your muscles are getting tired.
Join us for this pyramid workout, which will hit your quads, glutes, core, and heart rate.
Welcome to this 12 minute EMOM (Every Minute on the Minute.) Each minute for 12 minutes, repeat the below and rest until the next minute begins. Give each round full energy and enjoy your recovery.

Hey everyone –
After over 6 months of development — it’s finally here.
We’re thrilled to announce that our course on how to build functional strength to live a better, healthier life is now open.
Introducing: Sustainable Strength.
Here’s an idea: What if it were more standard for young adults to take a gap year after high school to work, gain real-world experience, and save a lot of money?
There are at least three reasons that this would be an extremely high-leverage decision:
(1) Your living expenses are never lower than when you are young and single, have cheap taste, and (possibly) live with your parents, or can at least live in a shared house with multiple roommates. That means you can save a lot of money.
(2) You will never have a longer time horizon to invest your money and let compound growth work its magic.
(3) A year of real-world experience after high school would allow young people to make more informed decisions about whether the college path (and the associated costs, etc) is right for them, or if they’d rather join the workforce, start their own business, travel, etc. If they do decide college is right for them, they would have more self-knowledge to help them decide where to go and what to study.
The question is, would that plan really make that big of a difference in people’s lives? Let’s find out.
With so many of us spending a lot more time cooking in 2020 than before, we thought it would be a good time to share an updated and revised version of our “Kitchen Tips” list. Enjoy!
