The Greatest Fat Loss Comes From…

As you read this, I am hiking up in the mountains somewhere in New Hampshire.

No, I didn’t write this this morning, I applied some time travel skills to talk to you even while I am holiday.

Anyhow, I am up here enjoying the fresh mountain air, getting a little sweat going with Suzy, the boys and pups.

A side effect would be fat loss.

You see, the greatest fat loss comes from moving the body through space.  And the greatest strength gains come from moving the body through space.  Machines don’t fit this definition.

Fat loss and muscle gain come from affecting the nervous and hormonal systems, both of which are heightened when moving through your environment.

An inverse row beats a machine row any day of the week and a hike beats an elliptical machine ten times out of ten.

Put this knowledge to use, it’ll make you smarter than 99% of the trainers out there.

Nobody Cares How You Look

Roughly 4 years ago, I had a realization that had been tapping on my shoulder for the prior 10 years….

And that realization was this:  Nobody cares how I look.

And no, you are not any different, no one cares how you look.

If you are attractive to yourself and you love yourself, then your body will take on the shape that it was meant to have.  But trying to force it to be something that it wasn’t designed for is a fool’s game.

Believe me, I have tried and failed, again and again at trying to mold my body into something it wasn’t, before I had this coming to gezuz moment.

And I’ve had people tell me not to let this secret out of the bag because on the surface, it goes against what we are as a business.  Yet, if you dig a little deeper, its messages like this one that it fits with our mission of helping you transform your life (mind, body and spirit).

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I break down why nobody cares what you look like.  You can listen to the episode on ITunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/unlocking-your-inner-strength/id1138596023?mt=2

Aggressive Patience

Before I went for a hike last Monday, I heard a dude on a podcast talking about aggressive patience.

It caught my attention, but why?

Well first thing is: the brain is fascinated by contrast. Hot-cold, black and white and so on.

But how does aggressive patience apply to you? Well, you need to realize that you have two choices; be just like everyone else or decide that you want to live on your own terms and do something great in your life.

If you choose the latter, then you need aggressive patience. You need to aggressively go after what you set your mind on and you need to be patient. No one that I have met yet, has succeeded with their initial BIG vision before at least a decade of plugging away.

This goes back to an old saying that I love, ‘All overnight successes take at least 12 years’.

You remain aggressive in your pursuit by constantly going back to what your vision and mission are and realizing that all you need to do each day, each week and each month is simply move the chains. You don’t need to try and go for the highlight reel touchdown pass each day.

Member Showcase: GL

If you’ve been following along at Newell Strength, then you are familiar with GL.

However, just in case…

GL came to us a year ago and did so-so.  He will admit that he didn’t hold up his end of the deal.  Yet, the seed was planted in his mind.

He recomitted himself in our winter Transformation Sweepstakes.  When GL started, he was close to 400 pounds.  Now, months later, he is down to 323 and still going!  GL is an inspiration to everyone around him!

You’ll see in the video that Hope, his daughter, is his driving force.

Do yourself a favor and watch the video for a few short minutes of inspiration:  https://youtu.be/f6lNQVerCp0

Teeing Off With a Putter

Do you remember when Tiger teed off with his putter?

Neither do I, because it never happened.

And there is a reason for that.

Different circumstances call for different skill sets, not just on the golf course, but in life.

If all you have is a hammer then everything is going to look like a nail to you.

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about the concept of stacking….

Your stack is simply the set of skills you’ve developed in your life in the order of which you accumulated and become more proficient at them.

I’m not a golf guy by any means, but there is a lot to be learned from observing the game.

Life is your classroom, take what is useful and discard the rest.

Please Be Politely Persistent

There have been a few times in my life when people have tried to take advantage of me because they’ve mistaken my politeness and compassion for weakness.

Things never seemed to turn out good for those people in those certain circumstances.

Maybe that’s because if there’s one thing I believe in, its persistency.

You can’t do anything great if you aren’t willing to persist when you hit the first ten ‘No’s’ or when the obstacle gets in your way.

If you fail to be persistent, you aren’t just letting yourself down, nope, you are letting down so many other people that need your help and your message.

One doesn’t have to be polite or persistent.  Rather, BE polite and persistent.

3 Cool Aspects of Your Brain

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been fascinated with the human brain.

Wherever there is curiosity, there is the seed for accumulated knowledge.

Within my quest, I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from some great teachers about ‘secrets’ of our brain.  Some of this is based in Mind Map and some of it is based in motivational psych.

Nevertheless, I love to share this stuff with you.

In today’s episode, I go over 3 really cool aspects of your brain that you may or may not be aware of.  You can list to the episode here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/unlocking-your-inner-strength/id1138596023?mt=2

The Runaway Pick Up Truck

Roughly two weeks ago, I was driving with Suga Shane to an off-site meeting with my long time Coach and mentor, Vince.

We were around mile marker 34 when I saw in my periphery a black pick up truck jet across our 3 lanes.  Amazingly, no one hit it.

Suga looked up and said, ‘What was that?!’

We both thought he was just cutting through but then we watched as he proceeded to cut across the 3 west bound lanes at a violent speed as well, again amazingly, no one hit him.

And off the edge he drove.

We called 911 and reported it.  I tried to look up the outcome that night but couldn’t find anything.

There are a couple of takeaways here; never take a second for granted, easy to say, but hard to live.  This guy was probably just on his way to work when he fell asleep at the wheel or his accelerator may have gotten stuck.  And, if we had been two seconds further ahead, we would have gotten smashed by him.

Perspective is a key element to enjoying your life.

Our, if nothing else, this shows you how important sleep is if indeed he fell asleep.

Member Showcase: Jeff Sullivan

Jeff started with us a few years ago after being referred by Coach Chris.

Jeff was used to going to the gym, following a typical program and making some progress.

But when Jeff came to Newell Strength, he was looking for a change of pace.

 

In the first year alone he put on over 10 pounds of muscle and dropped over 7% bodyfat!

Jeff has a level of consistency and commitment that is rare, let alone in a 28 year old.

Jeff has since brought along a couple of buddies and they workout consistently together 3-4x per week.

Here is Jeff in his own words: https://youtu.be/xTU49age-LM

 

Way to go Jeff, keep it up!

And Then This Happened…

We were all set to fly back from our trip to Kentucky.  A 9AM flight meant we were going to be home by lunchtime.

We had to wake the boys up early, out of their slumber since we wanted to get to the airport by about 7.

This meant that they would be raring to go on the plane.  Brax is a good flier but Colt, he is at the age where he won’t sit still and wants to explore everything.

As were waiting to taxi out to the runway, the pilot gets on the speaker and says there is a 2 hour delay since Newark was having some heavy storms.  Devon and I looked at eachother and she said, ‘What does that mean?’  I said it meant we would be sitting here on the plane, trapped for the next two hours and then we would have an hour and a half flight.

Amazingly, they did what they never do, at least in my experience, and they let us off the plane to hang out in the airport.

The boys spent the majority of the time riding and playing on the moving walkway, Tank running on it like a treadmill.  People were getting such a kick out of them.  I couldn’t believe how fast the time went when were called to re-board the plane.

We made the most of it and Tank wound up napping on my lap for the entire flight.

That’s turning lemons into lemonade.

Re-framing is the most powerful skill you’ll ever come across.
