This week's Garage Gym of the Week is Shawn Donaldson. He is 33 and a former college football player who's trying to increase his size and improve his powerlifting movements.
I am a former college football player where I played on the offensive line at Kent State University. Upon leaving the game of football, I really fell in love with weight lifting and training. I lost over 90 lbs in my transition away from the field.
Since then, I devote my early mornings (usually around 4:05am) as my opportunity to improve my body and my mind. I listen to leadership and motivation seminars by the likes of Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins, TD Jakes, Myles Munroe, Joel Osteen, Les Brown, and more while I workout to get in the right mindset for the day. It's perfect because it allows me to have a feeling of accomplishment while framing the right attitude.
It's been this constant movement from lifting and leadership inspiration that gave me the courage to launch my Morning Lifter Blog.
