The Warrior Diet: Switch on Your Biological Powerhouse for High Energy, Explosive Strength, and a Leaner, Harder Body. Focus on the message and not the title. It’s an interesting book on fasting diets with lots of practical tips.

The Omnivore’s Dilemma: The Search for a Perfect Meal in a Fast-Food World: It’s not easy being at the top of the food chain and able to eat anything you desire. Pollan goes in-depth with a sick food culture and has some very interesting and sensible points. Food is much more than micro- and macronutrients and organic/non-organic.

Do you want to be a loser?

Last weekend I visited one of my oldest and best friends in Germany. One of the great things about our friendship is that the conversation naturally flows from toilet stories over politics, society and parenthood and crude inside jokes. We pretty much cover everything.

My friend works with some real characters and one of them recently offered this little golden nugget of wisdom:

Winner in highschool, loser in life.

While this obviously doesn’t always hold true, I really like the underlying message. While the “carpe diem”-cliche may seem attractive at first, long-term planning is the way to go. In training and in life.

Training for today, this week or even this month is better than not training at all, but if you really want to kick it up a notch, you have to think long-term. How hard and how heavy you can go this week doesn’t really matter if you’re not training next week. Slow and steady wins the race.

Develop a philosophy over time and stick to it. Results will come.
