That was it. Just 3 lifts.

Three big basic lifts, all done for sets of 3-5.


Big warm-up. Long rests. Heavy loads.

Getting stronger.

Focused on my goals.

No matter how you train, make sure you train with purpose. Each rep, each set, each second of your workout should be purposeful, not wasteful.

I witnessed so much crap going on in the gym today it made me sad. So many minutes, hours, weeks, months, and years wasted by folks using terrible exercises and poor program design.

For example, all ab machines are terrible. They will break your back and they will NOT change your body.

In addition, slow cardio is a complete waste of time. It won't help you lose weight, and for some folks it might even make you fatter - by causing and encouraging you to eat more food after your workout.

Let's be honest, there are so many women whose thighs get FATTER with cardio and so many men whose bellies get bigger with cardio that there is obviously something going terribly wrong with slow cardio workout programs.

Stop using the machines. Stop wasting your time with cardio and abs.

Truth about your money mindset? (personal story)

Do not procrastinate any longer. Just do it. Take action. Far better to suffer through the pain of doing it, than guilt of procrastinating.
