You Are So Lucky

So I am not allowed to lift weights for awhile…a few months at least. It is the longest time that I have taken off since 7th grade. I don't know what year that was, 1980?

I am going out of my mind, I am going crazy, I am beyond nuts with this thing. But I understand, I am coachable, all that stuff. I am nerve pain free for the first time since forever.  My surgeon is a god among men.

But you can lift weights. And you aren't because you can't find the time or because you are tired or because of some BULLCRAP excuse.

Get your ass to the gym.

Day 1-Squat , Press, Deadlift, leave.
Day 2- Run some sprints or hit the heavy bag.
Day 3- Perform a dumbell circuit. Do all the curls and dips and chins and triceps extensions
Day 4- Pull a sled or shoot some hoops or play racquetball.
Then start over with Squat, Press, Deadlift, leave.

Repeat that cycle.

Eat protein at every meal. Eat a good carb source at every meal. Have a little junk , a few beers or drinks on the weekends.

Then do it again, and never stop.

Have light days, heavy days, fun days, but never stop.

Buy my Book of Programs for 10 dollars so you never even have to think about it. And that is not a shameless plug, it is the truth. Email me if you are having problems with motivation or you don't understand something.

Get started and never stop.

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.
