Nov 1 2019 – 75HARD begins!!


A 75 Day Mental Toughness Challenge

Recently, I came to the realization that I am mentally soft.

I have disproportionately let my feelings drive my actions. And I’ve relied on “perfect circumstances” and external stimulation to drive positive behavior.

For example, I cannot remember a morning in the last three years when I replied to client emails without first pouring a cup of coffee.

But I don’t want to rely on anything external or material.

And to jumpstart my move in that direction, I will be embarking on Andy Frisella’s 75HARD challenge.

For the next seventy-five days I will:

  1. Workout twice per day
  2. Perfectly execute my nutrition plan
  3. Read 10 pages per day
  4. Drink at least 1 gallon of water per day
  5. Take a progress picture every day

You can learn more about my specific workout and nutrition plan in this video.

The purpose of this challenge is to build mental toughness.

Note: this is NOT a challenge built to optimally craft my physique. In fact, for many years and to this day I care very little about having a “perfect” physique. 

But I do expect this challenge to help me rediscover and further cultivate certain traits.

I am grateful to my client and friend Danny (who made an INSANE transformation) for bringing 75HARD to my attention.

I am also grateful to Andy for creating the concept (more info in his podcast here); Andy’s description of the challenge and its purpose spoke to me.

Alright… It has been too long and I’ve missed you guys.

You can follow my 75HARD challenge on my instagram @mikevacanti.

And expect more on this website soon.

Wishing you well,
