Reasons why you should bee strength training…
If you only make time for one form of fitness, Strength Training is the most rewarding in terms of returns from the activity…
So, if you’re trying to lose fat…
Strength training is the best activity for fat loss.
That’s right. Strength Training.
It’s not hiit
It’s not cardio.
The best activity is not whatever jazzer-conditioning-infrared heated bs you have popping up on the feed this week.
Strength training is not going to make you bulky!
How you eat to recover from it dictates that part!
Your body will not change from your workouts alone–SEE ABOVE.
Invest your fitness for the returns you want!
Strength training is
Your answer for:
🔥Lower mortality rate/ longer play span.
🏋️♀️Peak performance potential
LADIES: ‘I don’t want to get bulky!’
GUYS: “I’m not trying to get huge’
These concerns are equal to having a fear of becoming a NASCAR driver if you get your driver’s license. It takes DECADES of dedicated, strategic lifting, eating, resting, and discipline to get BIG from lifting weights.
Ladies–the most amazing, admirable, aspirational and aesthetically pleasing physiques in the world are made from strength training–not doing hours and hours of cardio/yoga/pilates!
Men-You are not a high schooler anymore. Your ability to maintain, let alone add lean tissue has diminished severely and every year from age 30 on—both males and females lose an average of 1% of their lean tissue per year to sarcopenia–strength training and nutrition is the WAY TO COMBAT THIS! The next best things are so far secondary that they aren’t worth exploring!
(This is not to say that highschoolers don’t need to lift or pay attention to nutrition. In fact, they are/have established eating habits at this point and while youth is on their side, habit formation now is the blueprint for future success. With a good foundation and sound principles to empower decisions, younger lifters can accelerate their results as much or more than adults!)

Build a foundation. Here’s a basic blueprint based on recovery rates.
Keep it simple. (48-72 hour rest for 1-2 x week muscles**some muscle groups take longer to recover for some individuals–though recovery rates are impacted by a number of variables beyond genetics, novelty, volume, etc.)
Legs 1-2 x’s per week
Abs 3-6 x’s per week
Back 1-2 x’s per week
Chest 1-2 x’s per week
Shoulders 2-3 x’s per week**
Arms 2-3 x’s per week **
** as few as once for some.
Where to spend your time on movements?
Your time should be spent on 1-2 multi joint movements and 1-2 accessory movements per muscle group. Your rep ranges don’t matter as much as intensity, proximity to failure, pre/post workout nutrition, or, most importantly—CONSISTENCY.
CONSISTENCY is king. Bee consistent. Bee humble. Bee a student of the world. You will bee successful.
MOVES EVERYONE NEEDS (PERHAPS MODIFIED, BUT THESE ARE MUSTS)
-DEADLIFT (HIP HINGE)
-LATERAL MOVEMENT (LOWER BODY)
-LATERAL RAISE (SHOULDER)
-POSTERIOR SHOULDER MOTION (FACEPULL/REAR DELT FLY)
Individual needs will determine program splits, volume, rep ranges (personal responses vary), recovery, modalities/intensifiers, and program management based on schedules for proper athletic performance/goals.
As we have learned from human history and sports science principles:
Longevity, muscle, performance, and nutrition are intertwined. If you want progress on any of these—you can’t ignore the rest!
Rest is important. 7 hours or more! Don’t sleep on that sleep.
Eat to fuel the body.
Recognize each meal as an opportunity to provide the body with what it needs for energy, recovery, and optimal functionality.
Eat to build what you want.
Building a program for your individual goals doesn’t need to be an expensive headache or an investment in a cookie cutter program that ignores your abilities/equipment access/goals or worse, doesn’t educate you on the ‘whys and what’s’ of the process!
