Seeds Of Greatness

From 2007 to 2015 I gave away my best training and life mastery lessons for free on social media. With over 5,000 YouTube videos, blog posts and Facebook updates combined… I’ve shared a sh*t load of good stuff for setting you firmly on your path. This reminds me of the story of the farmer who goes out to his garden …

The “New Elliott” Podcast Interview

IMG_5372

Yo. Good morning. GREAT morning! I have to admit… I’ve been sort of grumpy lately.  Rather than go into all of the details for the cloud hanging over my head I’ll just say that mindful breathing, meditation, listening and honoring “the gap” has been my medication. We don’t need pills or brain surgery when things are rough. All we need …

Miami Florida! Just the name of this city carries untold power… Big City Beaches Palm trees Cuban food Yachts Ships Sun Scarface, and chicks… …all beautifully buzzing with Latin vibes. Lucky for me it’s only a 3 hour drive to this blessed American hot-spot. Even luckier for me that last week was the second time I got to visit Miami in the last …

Remember who you are.

Strength Camp attracts so many different types of people, from many many different places, all with very different personalities, characters, hopes, fears, dreams and faiths.  Honestly, I’m not shocked.   The wide array of topics and concerns that I’ve addressed  in YouTube videos over the last decade had opened the  doors to invite in friends, not only attracted to the “Iron and …

BEWARE: YouTube Posers and Strength Camp Imitators

Most of the pretty posers on YouToo and IG produce a ton of sizzle… but ain’t got no steak. “Do this move for shapely pecs”, they say. “Do this ditty for rounders looking delts”, they say. “Do these mini-reps for more pumps”, they say. All this to produce the illusion of strength, ruggedness and big-boy boldness.  Nothing against these dudes, …

Mirror Gazing and Admiring Gains (should you train in front of a mirror?)

Good morning brethren, lets ride…  A quick question from my inbox I’ll answer before heading out on my morning walk ritual: —— Hi Coach Elliott, I want to begin a barbell training program, and other strength coaches have recommended not to do the lifts in front of a mirror. What’s your opinion on this? I see mirrors in most gyms, …

NO Injuries. NO Growth.

My first major injury I remember was running into a wall and splitting my skull open, right between the eyes (which might explain my touch of madness). Later, I went on to: Bust my upper lip open. Bust the back of my head open. Bust above my right eye open. I’ve torn my knee ligaments. I’ve torn my ankle ligaments. I’ve torn my biceps tendons. I’ve sliced off …

It’s Friday. Or like Smokey in the movie Friday… “It’s Fry-dee… and you ain’t got sh*t to do.”  Smokey and Craig (Ice Cube) spend the day getting high, getting robbed, getting into fights and getting fired from work. What’s your Friday looking like so far? Today I’m in Colorado, waaay up in the snow-capped mountains learning how to make my …

“The Purposeful Lifter” (how to find your purpose + GREAT book)

IMG_3512

About ten years ago I started using a simple daily ritual to set my mind right first thing in the morning. Most mornings, before I sit down to write you these letters, I flip open one of my favorite books to gain some bite-sized insights and bits of wisdom. ​It’s called “The Warrior Of Light” by Paulo Coelho. ​My favorite part thing about this book …
