This week we have another Asaph Artist, Daniel Faudree! “I have been an Asaph Company Artist since 2010, in addition to dancing with the company I have also worked as an intern, Staff Assistant, and for just over the past year as the Assistant Director. I began dancing when I was 7 at the Northern Virginia Dance Academy, where I have had the opportunity to perform in many Asaph productions as a student and then years later perform in those productions as a company member. Wearing two different hats in the company is a joy and challenge at the same time, but I wouldn’t trade being out of breath from having just danced and jumping straight into watching and helping in rehearsals! In 2016 I graduated from the American Military University with a B.A. in Military History and a Minor in Intelligence Studies, and all the while continuing to dance with the company.
Your weekly reminder: the world NEEDS what you carry!
Whatever your passion is, the world needs it. Don't get down on yourself if you feel like the world is too crowded with people like you - there is room for everyone! The world needs YOUR version of YOUR passion. So give it to us!

Congratulations to Sgt Khalif Pitts for making the all marines. Good luck in your game today.
Are you ready to roll into the weekend? 😊 Here are progressions from Roll Up to Teaser on the Reformer that I like to teach my classes. It’s very doable for everyone. 1 heavy spring (red) is just right. It can be heavier for anyone who’s lack of abdominal strength. And lighter would make it’s more challenging.
We are so very honored to call @sweeneybarnweddings our home venue and our very first one in Prince William County!

The true importance of HUMAN CONNECTION.
Listen, I love social media. I love talking to people that I would otherwise never meet in real life. And I love the all-around, global connection that social media gives us. But don't mistake social media connections with real life HUMAN connections and relationships. Social media is there as a resource for us. It should NOT be the only means of connecting with others. Real human connections can also help your social media game because you will know how to truly connect to others in real-life. This is so so important as moms, business owners, sons, dads, nonprofit fundraisers, CEOs, etc. Everyone needs human connection and social media is just a resource to help with that. It is not meant to be the only means of connection in your life. 💕🥰
It’s been hot and humid this August, but we’re hearing the weather will be gorgeous this weekend (high of 80 with low humidity!). It’s a great weekend to #VisitOccoquan and see all the unique shops, restaurants and parks we have to offer.
Shout out to Dominion member @beckymarie04 she started as a weight loss client, kicking a lifetime of nasty habits, and now found a sport she is passionate about. Her first half marathon in is the spring.
Barring acute injury, knees hurt when your hips are not stable and your ankles have terrible mobility.
Think of it this way, your knees are stuck in the middle, they can only do what the hips can control and what your ankles will allow.
Most of the time knee pain is caused by tight hips, immobile ankles and feet, and lack luster posture. This makes the knee the symptom not the cause.
Where are you mentally when you train? Are you able to use life as fuel? Able to focus on the task at hand? What are your intentions? Where is your attention?
Are you saying to yourself, "I am going to do 5 reps on this squat as crisp and as technical as I can?" Or "Man I am sore" - "I don't like this music" - "Work sucked today" - "I forgot to pay that bill..." When you are running, prowling or rucking are you wallowing in the despair that it's 95 degrees outside and you're not even half way done or are you running with intent? Do you focus every ounce of your physical and mental being on the task at hand making sure you are maximizing that day's session?
Do you fret about future training, future sessions, or a future outcome, be it a goal or competition?
Trust that the ends will be there. Trust the system. Your coach. Your program. Trust your training partners. Improve the now...tomorrow will be here soon enough.
As your training session continues do you mentally wander? Do you chat a little too much? Or do you treat excess chatter during your deadlift like someone interfering your Netflix binge? Do you check your phone one last time? Or during burpees do you treat your cell with the same disgust you do when you fervently support not texting and driving?
Do you zone out and catch yourself staring at the wall? Or do you zone in with a 100 yard stare, ready to attack the session, movement, activity, set or even rep at hand?
Stay in the moment. If you lose it, come back to the moment. The more you practice this the easier it will get. Before long a moment will come where you are able to harvest the fruits of your labor and it will feel like just another day because you practice like you play.
If you find making up workouts, hitting double sessions, training off days, and doing what is needed to achieve the goals you've put ahead of yourself as punishment...Then cousin it's going to be a long , miserable road.
Change your mindset.
Find some joy in the gym. What you appreciate, appreciates.
Basic Benching Cues that work for beginners to advanced and everyone in between.
If your goal is geared benching or hypertrophy these cues may bend... Keep your feet wide and under you. This will create a strong base and allow you to utilize the hip drive that causes initial momentum off the chest while still keeping your glutes on the bench itself.
Pack your shoulders by pinching your shoulder blades together and tucking them into your back pockets. This in conjunction with bridging which will create a nice tight arch will not only keep you tighter for the lift but will cut down your range of motion. Packing the shoulders is not only a performance measure but also an injury deterant.
Take the widest grip your shoulders can handle to maximize leverage and reduce range of motion. Take your time moving out. You have nothing but time.
If you desire to press more, you must press more. And not just barbell benching. Incline, Board Press, Overhead Press, Swiss Bar, etc, will all improve your pressing. Time spent between 60% and 70% will perfect your technique. If competitive always pause the first rep as you'll always be required to in competition. Also pause all down sets to work technique when tired.
Row and row heavy. Strong lats are the foundation to press heavy and confidently. Tons of rear delt work for shoulder health.
Train your triceps 3x more than you are now. Once the stability from your lats allows the hip drive to propel your bench upwards a strong set of tris are what will propel you through sticking points. Don't sleep on the role grip also has in the bench. Don't ignore it.
Super Suicides. As one finishes their session with a weighted prowler and ruck for 150 yards down and back, 3 others sprint suicides. The picture was taken at the baseline. The target line is the prowler. The distance changes every second as the prowler is pushed away and eventually brought back. Keep it new, keep it fun.

Shout out to @chiarianbarbarian who lifts lots of heavy shit with #chiari . I started following her because my trainer at @dominionbarbell posted a piece on her. I do not personally have Chiari, but I have friends who do and her story is pretty amazing coming back to powerlifting after multiple surgeries to fix a chiari malformation that could have killed her. The human spirit can move bigger mountains than any bulldozer can if we only want it enough to believe a dream is possible.
Yesterday my trainer told me that this lady I have never met called me a "Bad Ass". I want to say thank you. Words can lift a spirit as much as lifting weights can. Though we havent met I think you're pretty awesome and a bad ass too!
Dominion Barbell's Cardio Deck is located in front of our facility. Feel free to choose an implement and walk about three quarters of a mile to the west and you'll run into our juice/coffee bar, the 7-11 on Wellington.
Stop settling for facilities that over deliver on square footage, the newest equipment, an army of trainers, and every amenity found in a modern gym, but are very scarce on results.
Ask yourself if there's a better way.
The three secrets to fitness, athletics, sport, strength, conditioning and pretty much anything else... #1 Accountability. "To be accountable means to be answerable for something within one's power or control. Notice the two aspects of this definition – the ability to control plus being able to answer for something. To be accountable means to be subject to giving an account or having the obligation to report, explain or justify something." Hold yourself accountable. If you cannot, find a coach, training partner, or group that will hold you accountable. Stop "Starting fresh on Monday." #2 Priority.
The fact or condition of being regarded or treated as more important. "The safety of the country takes priority over any other matter"
Synonyms: Prime concern, most important consideration, primary issue.
A thing that is regarded as more important than another." Some people like the idea of being a champion, they just don't like the time, effort and priority it takes to make it a reality. Get out a piece of paper and write down your priorities. Family, work, hobbies, napping, watching tv, partying. Be honest with yourself. Where does your time go? If you feel you're not where you'd like to be perhaps the list needs adjustment. #3 Compliance. "Compliance is either a state of being in accordance with established guidelines or specifications, or the process of becoming so." A great deal of programs, protocols, nutrition plans and general fitness guidelines work, WHEN FOLLOWED.
Not glitzy, not glamorous, just truth.
Sometimes a little simplicity is in order. 3 movements, total body. Sets of 10 on the bench taking 20lb jumps, super set with sets of 20 on the squat, same poundage jumps. Continue until prescribed reps cannot be met. Finish off the session with 6 sets of rope climbs. Picture was last accent with a 50lb pack.
There is a Chinese proverb that says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now". Obviously this may change based on your age but you get the point. What if you started your current endevor 5, 10 15, 20 years ago, but didn't "get around to it" until now. What if you started powerlifting, marathon running, martial arts, travel, working toward that education or job? You could be winning nationals and qualifying for worlds. You could be running Boston, Ultras, or triathlons by now. You could be a black belt with a stripe of two. You could have dozens of states and a handful of countries under your belt. You could have just about any degree they have out there and in some professions after 20 years you could already be retired.
Disapline starts with habit. Contrary to the idea it takes 21 days to make or break a habit tests have actually shown is closer to 66 days.
What do you love? What are you passionate about? What do you want to be successful at? Where would you be in your current endeavor if you planted the seed of habit and it grew into the tree of disapline 5 to 20 years ago?
Michael Phelps was diagnosed with ADHD in kindergarten. His parents where told he couldn't and wouldn't focus on anything. But he loved swimming and planted that tree. Now he has more Olympic Medals than some Counties.
You don't decide your future, you decide your habits and your habits decide your future.
Don't wait 20 more years to start a (positive) habit.
