Game My Life

Strong

In regards to core training, I try to incorporate the medicine ball whenever possible. As a baseball player, there is a lot of twisting and turning that I will do. Keeping my abs strong is as important as anything else.

Money is not everything. My ambition was football itself, not the money I'd make from it. If that brings me and my family a more comfortable lifestyle, then that's fine. But I don't spend my time between games and training sessions thinking about figures.

- Alessandro Del Piero

Motivation Big

Music can be useful during training to help get you psyched, and I still listen to music on easy climbs or in the gym. But during cutting-edge solos or really hard climbs, I unplug. There shouldn't be a need for extra motivation on big days, be it music or anything else. It should come from within.

- Alex Honnold

Everything in moderation. I keep a healthy body, a healthy look. It's important not to be obsessive about anything - fitness, training, eating - because then you end up focusing on only that. And you can't obsess about anything when you're on the road.

Hosting Arafat

Arafat is hosting, training, supporting, sponsoring terrorist organizations.

Week I Think

I think it is easier for thinner people to build on a frame once you get lean muscle. I get bored lifting weights at the gym, and it isn't enough as your body becomes stiff. So I train in different ways such as core training, cardio with weights, playing sports such as tennis, cycling, swimming and running 10 km once a week.

- Arjun Rampal

Best Pattern

I find 12 P.M. as the best time to work out. During training, I do two body parts a day: chest-back, back-triceps or chest-biceps so that my body doesn't get used to a pattern.

- Arjun Rampal

Through Part

At times, I do Tabata, a high-intensity Japanese training regimen, in which I must do 20 seconds of a specific body part with 10 seconds of rest. This must be done eight times within four minutes. Your heart rate shoots through the roof, but you burn a lot of fat.

- Ashton Sanders

Other Taxpayers

My definition, a definition in the drill books from the time that General Von Steuben wrote the regulations for General George Washington, the definition of the object of military training is success in battle... It wouldn't be any sense to have a military organization on the backs of the American taxpayers with any other definition.

- Chesty Puller

Seven Dad

I know everyone thinks Dad is a little bit crazy with his training, because we train a lot harder and do more kilometres and stuff than most pentathletes. Training is full-on. It's seven or eight hours a day.

Church Turn

- Christina Hendricks

Advice Use

Moms get their fair share of conflicting advice, with a heaping of unsolicited advice. Parents debate the pros/cons of different types of disposable diapers, whether the supposed carcinogens in Johnson & Johnson baby products hurt their kids who used it, which method of sleep training to use.

- Christine Tsai

England Matches

In my view, fitness training isn't that important in England, as they all train with such intensity anyway and have a competitive edge when just sprinting. The matches are all hard-fought, too.

- Claudio Ranieri

Specialty

Training, that's my specialty.

- Colin Kaepernick

- David Blunkett

Reason Some

Boy Started

I started training for musicals since I was a boy.

I'm a mediator by training and inclination.

Veterans House

Last month, the House of Representatives passed the Veterans Opportunity to Work Act, which would provide training and assistance to unemployed veterans, and break down bureaucratic barriers preventing them from finding work. It's smart legislation that members of both parties support, and I'm pleased the Senate passed it.

- Joe Heck

Back Squat

I was happier going back to my roots: training like men do in my hometown of Pittsburgh. Back home the guys in the gyms don't lift to look good; they're lifting to lift. They do it because they want to squat more and bench more.

- Joe Manganiello

Myself Actor

I don't have actor training myself.

- John Hawkes

America Barack

Barack wants to stop all children from working on the farm... Can you imagine this? I just, I can't fathom that. Did you ever think we'd grow up in America and see something like that? Let me take it one step further. He wants to disallow the 4-H from training children to work on a farm.

- John Raese

Will Some

Some people are great at dieting and train somewhat inconsistently - for those people, getting on a great training program and following it will be the best thing for you.

Our waterboarding program is based on the U.S. military training program... tens of thousands of U.S. servicemen were waterboarded pursuant to this program to prepare them for the possibility of being captured someday so that they would know what it felt like.

- Jose Rodriguez

Zero Had

By the way, I have had zero press training.

- Josh Trank

Very Works

Conducting is a strange thing to teach. There are very few great conducting teachers, and most great conductors don't teach. Look at Valery Gergiev - what he does is not teachable. A lot of it is on-the-job training, what works and what doesn't work.

- Joshua Bell

Mental Bodies

The truth is that throughout my careers in both chess and the martial arts, I often knew that my rivals were more naturally gifted than me - either with their mental machines or their bodies. But I have believed in my training, my approach to learning, and my ability to rise to the challenge under pressure.

- Joshua Waitzkin

Part Quickly

We realized quickly that wages are only one part of it, that what also matters are the schedules we give people, the hours that they work, the training we give them, the opportunities you provide them. What you've got to do is not just fix one part, but get all of these things moving together.

- Judith McKenna

Experience Part

I was with the CIA for only three years. I worked in the Directorate of Operations, which is now called the National Clandestine Service. It's the part of the organization where the spies live. I didn't have much experience beyond the training.

- Belinda Carlisle

Believe Prepare

First, do enough training. Then believe in yourself and say: I can do it. Tomorrow is my day. And then say: the person in front of me, he is just a human being as well; he has two legs, I have two legs, that is all. That is mentally how you prepare.

- Haile Gebrselassie

Me Like

For me a day without training is like a day without eating.

- Haile Gebrselassie

About Had

I don't care about how I look; I'm dedicated to the laughs. You know, I used to be a clown, so - my name was Smoothie the Clown. All the training I had, all my training is geared toward making people laugh, and I didn't care about being cool.

- Bernie Mac

Show Shed

You can train and train until you are blue in the face, but you've got to diet, you've got to have that leanness because if you are not lean, your abs won't show. Of course, the training has to be put in, but then you've to shed all the fat and keep the fat off. And that's how you get an eight pack.

Reason Some

Sports Tempo

I've done a lot of training in martial arts. I started out in warring tempo, I did sports jujitsu, and I've also practiced extreme martial arts.

- Booboo Stewart

Love Focus

I'm always open to suggestions. I'm open to opportunities. Whether I take them or not, I don't know. And I would only take them if I weren't training, if I didn't have a fight scheduled. I really want to keep my focus on fighting. That's where all these doors are opening up from anyways. I don't want to lose sight of that. I love fighting.

- Holly Holm

Game Play

When I don't have a fight scheduled, training is even more fun. I can come into the gym and work on stuff that isn't generated for a specific game plan. I can just play around with it and have a good time. I never want to get to the point where I'm sick of it.

- Holly Holm

Night Happen

There's days in training where everything flows and days in training where they don't. You just pray that doesn't happen the night of the fight.

- Holly Holm

Film Documented

My training is documented on film.

- Brad Pitt

Get Makes

I can get obsessive with my training, but it makes you who you are.

- Bradley Wiggins

My approach to training changed dramatically throughout my experience as one of the trainers on 'The Biggest Loser.' Getting to know each person was an important reminder that to get the body physically fit, you must first get mentally and emotionally 'fit.'

- Brett Hoebel

Beyond Trained

I'm a fully trained cosmonaut and have completed 800 hours training, which has made me the No. 1 civilian reserve ready to visit the International Space Station. I am determined to go up, and I want to explore the Moon, Mars and beyond!

- Brian Blessed

Learning About

Training a dog, to me, is on a par with learning to dance with my wife or teaching my son to ski. These are fun things we do together. If anyone even talks about dominating the dog or hurting him or fighting him or punishing him, don't go there.

- Ian Dunbar

Want Develop

When I'm training a dog, I develop a relationship with that dog. He's my buddy, and I want to make training fun.

- Ian Dunbar

Hall Using

You don't train a dog in a training hall, jerking his neck or even giving him food treats. You train him using life rewards.

- Ian Dunbar

Concerned Had

I had an instinctive feeling that the people who have little or no school training should have something coming into their homes weekly which dealt with their problems in a simple, helpful way... so I wrote in a plain, common-sense way on the things that concerned our people.

- Ida B. Wells

Mental Staying

I'm always staying motivated because, as training camp goes on, practices become more intense, harder, and shorter. It's a mental thing, too, not only physical - you have to stay mentally sharp and stay focused on the task in front of you.

- Brock Lesnar

About Great Lakes

The day after high school, I was off to basic training at the Great Lakes Naval Station. You gotta understand, we didn't care about sports. We wanted to win the war. We wanted to win the war! And at the time, we didn't know if we would.

- Bud Grant

Spring Down

You mean guys don't get injured in spring training? Guys get hurt walking down the street.

- Bud Selig

Used Shed

I was an athlete growing up. I did a lot of sports: soccer, basketball, so I was always so used to hardcore training, a lot of running. I got to a point where I felt like I just wanted to get toned; I didn't need to shed pounds, so now I do Pilates.

- Jacquelyn Jablonski

Bad Happen

With taekwondo, anything can happen, really. You get bad days; you get good days of training, so you've just got to hope that you're on it on your day.

- Jade Jones

Sacrifice Devote

A player cannot become a world champion overnight. To become a champion, a player has to sacrifice a lot and to devote much of his time practising and training.

- Jahangir Khan

Nature Social

The traditional Christian attitude toward human personality was that human nature was essentially good and that it was formed and modified by social pressures and training.

MTV was such a great training for me. I did live interviews with everyone from Michael Jackson to Madonna.

- Carson Daly

Education Own

Education from the lowest to the highest form must have for its object the training of the individual so that, in seeking the fullest satisfaction of his own nature, he will harmoniously perform his function as a member of a corporate society.

- Charles A. Beard

Very About

Just as I am working hard to adjust to a new level, someone comes along and asks me to move up again. I'm not complaining about it; I just get on with trying to make sure I don't let anyone down. Training with England is just a different gravy again. Movement-wise, finishing-wise, you can learn such a lot from watching the very best in action.

- Jamie Vardy

Research Design

I specialise in taking teams of designers, psychologists, usability experts, sociologists and ethnographers into the field. It's called 'corporate anthropology,' but personally I'm more comfortable with 'design research,' because I'm not an anthropologist by training.

- Jan Chipchase

Medical Anatomy

Medical training taught me the art of breaking down the complex maze of stories, symbols and rituals into clear systems. You could say that it helped me figure out the anatomy and physiology of mythology and its relevance in a society more incisively. How is it that no society can, or does, exist without them?

- Devdutt Pattanaik

Own Skilled

I come from a family with a long tradition in shoemaking, and I still live in a region famous for its shoemakers. It is getting harder and harder to find skilled workers. There are no professional training institutes, so we have to train our own employees. And an apprenticeship takes three years.

- Diego Della Valle

Careful Arrival

During my training to become an airline captain, I had to learn how to navigate an airplane over long distances. Flights over huge oceans, crossing extensive deserts, and connecting continents need careful planning to ensure a safe arrival at the planned destination.
