Phase 3 of Live Hard: The Ultimate Test

By May 28, 2020No Comments

Andy Frisella’s Live Hard program is a game changing mental toughness program designed to turn you into the best version of yourself. In this fourth of a five part podcast series, Rob Cressy is joined by his friend and accountability partner Brendan Pettit as they share their Phase 3 of Live Hard experience.

Phase 3 builds off of the lessons learned and dues paid during 75 Hard, Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the program. It is also the final phase of the Live Hard program. Finish it and we complete it.

What made this phase unique is that it had to be accomplished exactly 30 days before the 1 year mark of starting the Live Hard program. That just so happened to align with the start of the Coronavirus. Nothing like layering on a mental toughness program on top of a global pandemic.

What was their mindset like for this final 30 day phase compared to the previous ones? How did they go about meeting one new person a day and doing a random act of kindness? What were the biggest challenges they had to overcome? In what areas was the quarantine actually a good thing? What new habits or routines were introduced? What was it like when they completed Phase 3 and were officially done with the Live Hard program?

If you are interested in becoming the best version of yourself then this episode will share the habits, routines, and lessons learned from our Phase 3 of Live Hard experience. We recorded podcast episodes for each of the previous phases: 75 Hard (Ep 349), Phase 1 (Ep 357), Phase 2 (Ep 376).

If you are considering doing 75 Hard then I highly recommend you listen to Andy Frisella’s MFCEO podcast where he talks about the origin of it. It’s straight fire.

Your feedback & thoughts are super important to us a we’d love to support you on your Live Hard and 75 Hard journey. You can connect with Rob & Brendan on social media and let us know what you think.
