Just Listen

It will change your life.

Weight training that is.

And a decent diet

And some cardio

I am writing this because I just saw a women jogging down the road, and I have seen the same women jogging down the same road for years, like 5 years. She looks no different than when she began jogging. And I mean, she gets after it. She waddles along, busting her ass, man. She works and she works and she is wasting her time. She has not changed at all. She runs in the snow, icy streets, all day, she's killing it. Mile after mile. Year after year.

I want to pull over and throttle her. Not really. Not throttle in a real sense.  I want to shout at her. From the bed of my 4 wheel drive Rock Warrior I want to shout, "STOP JOGGING! "  "Lady!" " Just do what I say, just do what I say...just do it".

Just do the following things: Lift weights 3 times a week. Squat, Deadlift, Press, Row, Pushups. Maybe some dumbbells.

Cardio- walk or ride a bike 6x a week for 45 minutes.  You can also box or Muay Thai. Yes, you can jog, I am not against it at all, but you must lift weights and change your diet.

Diet- eat fibrous carbs and protein and tons of veggies. Eat 4-6 times a day. Eat what you want a few meals a week.

I know that it works.

I have ladies(40 to 60 years old) that I train who have literally changed their lives with doing exactly what I said, and exactly what I wrote about above. Why? Because they are tough and they accept the fact that its uncomfortable to squat and deadlift. But they give it a chance and VOILA! They feel it, the strength and the confidence comes.


You don't have to dance around, or waste your time with classes or some guy stretching you out for an hour and then making you do some hideous band suspension on a  huge ball that makes you look and feel stupid.

I wanna put everything in caps.

They just want your money

They don't know a damn thing.

Its easy. Well, not easy. It is simple, thats it, simple. Do what I say and your life will change.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
