You guys have been asking where Jesse has been and ow his progress is coming along? So instead of being the messenger and telling you about him; he wanted to tell you himself!
Not much to say about this one except…This might hurt “certain” people. If you’re reading my emails…You’re likely not the type that gets called out here. BUT…You might know someone who is. The one video you must send to them!
Never one to back down from a challenge…A member of TEAM ATHLEAN issued the “Ice Bucket Challenge” to me. I answered. Sure, I got soaked. And froze my nuts off! BUT…It’s not about the water or the video. It’s about the cause.
Last week I shot a video from my basement as I prepared for a 9:30PM workout. It turned out to be pretty motivational to many who saw it. Well…Be prepared to get fired up again! The Top 10 Best Workout Songs Ever! Sure, the spoken word can be incredibly inspiring. But add in some beats…You might feel like you can run through a wall! See My Top 10…And one very embarrassing twist!)
There's no denying that the "more is better" mindset rules our society: more money, more land, more respect, etc. Muscle building is no different: more reps means more muscle. More workouts? More muscle. More time spent working out? More muscle. Problem is, that kind of thinking is the fastest way to an "OTOD", or overtraining overdose!
One of the most frustrating things that most people will face if they've worked out the same way for any length of time (greater than 1-2 months) is the tendency to fall into a rut and see muscle building and/or fat loss come to a screeching halt! You know what I'm talking about... It's the dreaded "PLATEAU".
