Sunday Hardcore

Hard body Olympians didn't get that way by eating chicken and broccoli. In fact, many of them consume more than 6000 calories per day. So what's their secret?

Hardcore training.

Here are some of my forgotten hardcore workouts.


These include barbell complexes. like to go from top to bottom: Squat, press, front squat, row, RDL.

In addition to complexes, they almost all do interval training.

And new Australian research shows 17% decrease in belly fat after 12 weeks of interval training (J. Obesity, Heydari, M., 2012). Find out the best way to do intervals here

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
It is tempting for us – myself included – to remain in our comfort zones. But that is not where we grow, improve, and make the changes necessary to dramatically move ahead. So my challenge to you to do the opposite. Look at what you are doing to stay in your comfort zone and think, "What is the opposite action of my instinct? And would this opposite action be the better solution?"

You must look at what can be, not what is. You must also look at what is going to be if you don't change. You can change and things can be different. It's up to you.

If it is to be it is up to me,
