I’ll be honest, over the last six months, my exercise has gone to rat shit.
A long-standing, non-negotiable, daily standard that I’d let get kicked to the kerb and put out to pasture when the going got tough.
Under the circumstances, I guess it’s no big deal but four weeks ago, as I looked at my jowls jangling in the mirror, I decided enough was enough and have reignited a daily “date with the weights.”
Granted it’s at home, but the fact of the matter is beggars can’t be chooses.
Anyway 28 days in and once again I’m feeling alive.
The body’s pumped…
The mind is primed…
And the mental motivation is pushing past plateaus.
The funny thing is there’s always been something about pumping iron that gets me jacked:
- It’s systemised – follow a plan, get results
- It’s measured – track the numbers, get results
- It’s rise & repeat – keep doing what works, get results
Or in other words a philosophy of man, that lives and dies by a code of just…
“Shut the fuck up and train…”
… that is of course IF you want to get results!
Now I don’t know about you, but in my experience, every day you train is like judgement day.
Each rep matters.
Each lift matters.
There’s no time for talk.
You are competing with yourself, against yourself.
All that matters is moving weight.
The same mental attitude, dogeared determination and grit that serves all too well for many self-men in this game too.
… Because the rule of thumb and mantra for money, man and freedom, is EXACTLY the same:
System + Measurement + Repetition = Results
A formula that this week, and on the back of Monday’s announcement, I’d urge you to write down and start leveraging with speed and full force.
As the gates start to creep open, the spoils will go to the men that are ready and willing, right now, to “shut the fuck up” and do what needs to be done in these three areas alone:
Make More. Provide More. Be More.
PS. This week is looking like when my NEW book will be going to press.
… I’m not 100% sure yet, so keep an eye out for updates this week and as they happen.
