Projects 2011

I am fervently working on many collaborations for new videos this year. I have secured and interviewed models and videographers as well as scouted out shooting locations. As a small production company, it's all about staying within budget, and delivering a high quality product to the audience. Fortunately, over the past few years, I have been blessed with a devoted fan base, that despite my shortcomings in quantity and quality of footage, they have stood by me, and I thank them and the Universe for such fate. As we all know, nothing good in life comes easily. This is why I am very focused on making all my hopes and dreams come true in 2011 through my hard work and passion.

As many of you may know, my craft is being a top notch, super sexy, powerful Amazon. This is no easy task, as it requires high quality food, diligent training with extremely heavy weights, and plenty of rest, and tender loving care from my intimate friends. Oh yes, and lots of sex. Can't forget that. I would be remiss if I did not mention that. Sex and all that surrounds the act of sex the foreplay and the after play are what I consider one of the finest things in life, and also, the elixir to a balanced, happy life. I have never been one to use drugs or alcohol or other substances or crutches to get "high on life". I simply don't believe any of these things enhance any one's well being in the long run. Now, admittedly, I enjoy my red wine or tequila in moderation, but I never drink to make myself feel better.

So, maintaining my Amazonian physique to my specifications takes some doing and maintenance from a few good friends! We cannot go through this world without our own network, and being interdependent upon others, nor should we try.

I am fortunate to have networked with some wonderful people this year, and this will show in all of my work, that I have received opportunities and gifts from many people. I have learned a long time ago, that everyone has something good to offer the world. And, it is incumbent upon each and every one of us to sort out what are our own unique gifts and talents and how we may make the world a better place. It does not have to be something so complex or complicated. So long as you bring joy to yourself and others, I think that is enough. Making someone smile or laugh during the day. Laughter is also another overlooked elixir to youth and good health. It's difficult to be preoccupied or sad in life while you are laughing.

So, back to the drawing board on becoming the best Amazon I can become, I have been pushing the envelope on all of my lifts. My deltoid/scaupla/latissimus dorsi group has become a bit tight from all the heavy benching and overhead pressing, but it is healing up and feeling better today. This past Monday, I bench pressed 295x2 and a week ago today, I overhead pressed 215x3 (2 separate sets) in push press fashion. So, the lifts are increasing and I am feeling more confident in pushing heavier weights. But, any sign of stress or strain, and I give myself a few more days rest, as this is the most prudent thing to do. I plan on videotaping this in the next few days, so stay tuned to my blog so you can witness my progress.

And, the craft of staying on top of my strength game will only serve to translate into better quality video productions for my website(s).

Projects 2011

I have been fervently working on many projects for 2011.

Overhead Pressing

My new standard benchmark for OH pressing is 185x5 on any given day. This allows me to easily lift people up to around the 160 pound range overhead with ease. Although, lifting a human body is a lot different than a barbell due to a lot of factors. And, the liftee must not fidget, twist, or move about while in the air, otherwise, he could cause serious damage to either myself or himself. I always try to train the liftee, to relax, and to hold his hands and legs a certain way, but it's not always easy. I tried to have Rebecca Swanson lift me overhead one time, and it is a bit scary in the air, first of all, you must trust the lifter that you are not going to get dropped! And, in my case, I am 5'9", and my reach is around 7'4", so taking all of this into account, the liftee is quite a ways up in the air, helpless, and sideways. It's best if I have someone that has great body awareness, and perhaps a gymnastic or acrobatic type background, and knows how to make himself "light" while in the air.

My shoulders, wrists, hands, and elbows must not only be very strong, but also flexible.

One Arm OH Filipina Press

This past summer, I trained to begin lifting people overhead to display my unique feats of strength. Nothing is more intriguing than a big, powerful, sensual body in motion as far as I am concerned. My girlfriend here weighs right around 100 pounds. Stay tuned for more exciting lifts and feats of strength!

Health is Wealth

One of my favorite images with my good friend, Nikki Fuller.

Spring 2011 has certainly been interesting, and I am refreshed, renewed, and invigorated for all the new projects I have started. Sometimes in life, well, I would say most often, we only need to reflect and look inward to determine the direction of our lives, as I have posted here before.

Health is the "new wealth", and if we could only look at wealth in a more organic way, we just may feel better about ourselves. My definition of wealth is glowing health, nurturing friendships and relationships with others, caring for humanity, and doing the "right thing".

My training is off to a terrific start, and I am pressing right around 200 lbs overhead and benchpressing in the low 300's without the assistance of "gear", such as a benchpress shirt or a belt. The only supports I use are wrist wraps. I took a bit of time off around the holidays, to recover and gain focus. Good health is the new wealth, and no matter how much money one has or material things, nothing can make one feel better than being in good physical condition, physically, mentally, and spiritually. No amount of money in the world can offer this kind of well being. So, I am pleased to have maintained my strength, and look forward to pushing to new and improved strength gains this year.

I took a lot of time off from traveling this past year to focus on all aspects of my health, and it payed off in great dividends. And, also to focus on cultivating and deepening the relationships with all those that are in my life, as well as my personal business projects, which you will see come to life as the year passes. It is difficult to water the garden when one is never home! So, I decided to change that. Friends are like flowers, and they must be cultivated, nurtured, and fed. Sometimes all we need to do, is observe nature, and how our lives are nature, and to follow that natural course, like a flowing river. The river is always moving, sometimes forceful. Often, we need to be more like the water.

I will be doing more videoshoots focusing on my human feats of strength, my hardcore gym workouts, and other fun activities, and publishing them on my websites.

Stay tuned for an amazing 2011 with me!
