Congratulations! You've made it to the final day of the course.
I really hope you've enjoyed it so far BUT most importantly…
I hope you've learned from these mistakes and put your plan to correct these mistakes into immediate action.
We've got 3 more HUGE mistakes for you today. I've also got a few surprises for you for making it to Day 7 of this course.
Today, we're going to tell you about typical diets available to you. You know… the ones you've probably tried over and over with results that never lasted?
Have you ever followed a diet or weight loss program blindly? Did you know why you were doing something? For example, why were you eating low carb? No one ever explained it to you. If they did try to explain it to you, they probably had it all wrong.
That's why it never worked.
Have you ever tried weight lifting before? Most likely, if you have, you went looking for a good weight lifting program and found some mediocre program designed by someone who knew nothing about what they were doing.
It's time to learn the truth about 3 more mistakes you've been making. Here we go…
Believing You Need to Diet When You Actually NEED Something Totally Different
Let's talk about dieting for a a second…
Why do most people believe they can go on a diet, lose 10 or so pounds, and then go back to eating exactly the same way before and keep those 10 pounds off?
The body doesn't work that way.
If you go on a diet, lose 10 pounds, and then go back to eating the same way as before that diet, YOU WILL gain those 10 pounds back and even more. You can't expect to stay the same when you go back to bad habits. Why would anyone expect that?
You can't get a job, start making money, quit the job, and expect to continue getting a paycheck. Right? Why would dieting be any different?
Diets will NEVER give you permanent results. NEVER. You need something totally different than any diet. Can you guess what it is?
You have to totally change your lifestyle.
You MUST start eating natural, nutritious, high quality, and great tasting food instead of eating all that junk you've been eating. Trust me on this one… Healthy food can and will taste MUCH better to you when you make the change.
Greasy foods, candy, doughnuts, cake… All of them do not taste good to me any more and many of them make me sick. Greasy foods especially make me sick.
A healthy and great tasting meal is so much more satisfying.
When you see how great you feel when you eat nutritious foods throughout the day, you'll be hooked.
You can eat more and never get fat. You have tons of energy. Headaches go away. Aches and pains subside.
When you change your eating habits for the long run… that's when you see PERMANENT RESULTS. No more yo yo weight loss. Make a lifetyle change and eat healthy ALL THE TIME. It's not difficult but it sure is rewarding. You've got to try it… it's worth the effort!
Not Knowing and Understanding Why You Are Doing Something
The human mind is very POWERFUL.
If you get your mind to work with you, you can achieve pretty much anything you want. Seriously.
If you pit yourself against your mind, you WILL NOT achieve your goals. Your mind will work against you and sabotage your efforts.
How about a quick example to explain exactly what I mean?
There was this woman that my wife worked with a few years ago. She was constantly starting her ‘diet' the next day or the next week. She would always eat doughnuts and candy bars and then tell everyone she was going to start her new diet the next day.
Then she was always saying that she just couldn't lose any weight. Well, no wonder.
What I wanted to point out is the fact that she is sabotaging her own efforts by telling her subconscious mind that she CAN'T lose any weight. She would tell herself that each and every day. And her mind helps to make that reality.
Here's my point…
You MUST know why you're doing something, how it works, and you must believe in it. By knowing how something works and why… You REALLY start to believe in what you're doing.
You've got to keep your thoughts positive. You've got to believe in the program you are using. You have to know the strategy. If a program doesn't give you that, ditch the program.
Don't take this advice lightly. Your mind is your most powerful asset. Learn how to put it on your side, and you win.
Trusting Advice of So-Called Experts that Tell You to Use a Split Routine
Split routines are NOT the best workout strategy — not even close.
Yet, I see and hear people telling others that they should only be working each muscle group once per week.
Why? Well, these people giving the advice spout off something to this effect: “Your muscles need a full 7 days to fully recover.”
Where did these poeple get this? Did they do a scientific study on muscle recovery? If they did, I didn't read anything about that. The truth is… These people are simply regurgitating information that they've heard from someone else. IT'S NOT TRUE!
Your muscles do not need 7 days to recover. Someone must have come up with 7 days just because it fit the weekly schedule.
Science has proven that your muscles do not need 7 days to recover. Recovery time (once again) depends on too many factors for anyone to tell you that you can't recover in a certain period of time.
I love the people that tell me you can't do Squats 3 times per week without overtraining. The people telling me this don't know me, don't know what I eat, how much I eat, how much I sleep, don't know the intensity of my workout, or anything about me.
But… they think they can tell me that I can't do squats 3 times per week and make progress.
Yet, when I tell them that I and millions of others do this every single week (naturally too by the way), they don't believe me. The fact that I've built almost 80 pounds of muscle NATURALLY means nothing to them.
Olympic weight lifters workout even more often than that, and I think they are doing just fine. Come on! They are the best weight lifters in the world.
Full body workouts are better? What?
I always recommend full body workouts to most people but especially for beginners. And I always design every single one of my weight lifting programs to work each muscle group more frequently than once per week.
With full body workouts, you get 3 times the number of workouts per year for each muscle group. This means you get 3 times the muscle building potential than once per week split routines. 3 TIMES!!!
So please don't make the mistake than millions and millions of other people are making throughout the world RIGHT NOW. Try something different. Try an intelligently designed full body workout program… You will love the results.
