Have you ever wondered how some guys you know have such an easy time gaining muscular strength? And they can do it in just a matter of weeks without endless reps, complicated exercises, hours in the gym, fancy equipment or dangerous drugs?
If so I’d like to show you how.
But first, I’d like to share with you 4 Hidden Strength Keys I’ve stumbled upon that will help you build massive, life changing strength that goes beyond the gym. Secrets that I have been fortunate enough to learn from my good friend Mike Gillette who is considered a master practitioner of mind/body power. I’ll tell you more about Mike in just a minute but first…
You’ll need to grab a pen and pad to take notes because these 4 Strength Building Mantras could be the difference between tapping into rock-solid strength or submitting to your genetic limitations.
KEY #1: DO NOT TRAIN TO FAILURE
Making a habit of training to failure is not doing you any good.
When you train, you are not only training the muscles but your central nervous system (CNS) as well.
The problem with training to failure is that it is very hard on the CNS and really interferes with your recovery ability (and can even develop a nasty habit of missing lifts). Training to failure needs to be avoided if you want to keep making progress and avoid burnout. You can train just short of failure and get really strong.
KEY #2: STRENGTH STARTS FROM THE
INSIDE AND MOVES OUT FROM THERE
True bar-bending strength transforms more than just your physical realm. Building the type of strength I’m talking about transforms your life.
Yes, your body will become a hardened machine capable of extreme feats of strength that you never thought you could accomplish… but other areas of your life will also transform.
Here’s why… If you want everything you can get out of life, you need to be strong. If you want long-term, healthy relationships you need to be strong for other people. If you want to achieve anything meaningful in life for yourself you need to be strong
KEY #3: DO NOT CONFUSE TRADITIONAL
BODYBUILDING WITH STRENGTH TRAINING
If you have been getting your “strength training” information from some glossy bodybuilding magazine that has some oiled up, tanned guy in spandex “pumping” his muscles… then I’m sorry that’s not going to build real strength.
Real strength training results are all about improving your function and capabilities.
If you base your strength training on stereotypical bodybuilding dogma its like having a Ferrari with no motor inside… it’s all show and “no go”.
Besides, how can you possibly learn strength training from people who don’t train for strength?
