How to Get Healthy Immediately

1. Health is Wealth.

You have to start with the mindset that your health is the most valuable resource you have. A lack of health is worse than a lack of money. Your energy, your vitality, your drive to get things done, that all comes from your body.

You should LOVE to be healthy, and want to be as rich as possible in your fitness. A new way of life wont come from your previous mindset. 2. Start Waking up at Dawn

Circadian Rhythm is real. Entire textbooks could be written about circadian rhythm, but the most practical strategy and daily action is to rise with the sun, and coordinate your schedule during daylight hours. This is the master mechanism that ensures good sleep, and good sleep energy, and energy means you can attack your priorities, and priorities mean you follow a schedule, and so on and so forth.

Dont argue with it, just do it. Wake up with the son, go to sleep with the night. You have at least 12 hours of daylight minimum to get done what you need to get done

MIKE MENTZER THREAD:

I see he has become popular on the timeline, so lets talk about it

In this thread I cover his origin story and how he developed his “Heavy Duty” philosophy on training, sets, reps, workouts, volume, and frequency Image Mike was born in 1951, he was of german extraction and grew up in Germantown, Philadelphia PA

He got into bodybuilding in his teens, and won several contests in his late teens and early 20s

At this this time (early 1970s), it was the Arnold Era, and high volume was the norm Image

More of you need to take the Bill Pearl Pill and and expand your minds

"Work harder and work smarter, which is different from work heavier. The weight is just a tool. Superset, rest less, focus on contraction over weight, slow your reps down. Train muscles, not movements" Image When I was training in the ’60s and making my best gains, most of my sets were eight reps.

Eight reps is the sweep spot. It’s low enough that you can use heavy weights but high enough that you can really work the muscle and not just move the weight" Image

Dumb mistakes men still make in the gym

1. Avoiding pullups and chinups.
2. Not training legs
3. Still following your high school or college training split
4. Not training back with any serious intent or intensity
5. Avoiding cardio
6. Neglecting mobility 1. Avoiding pullups and chinups.

You are fat. And weak. That is why they are hard.

I dont know why anyone struggles at figuring this out. There is nothing mysterious about this.

Roommate I had in college was autistic (legitimately, not self diagnosed)

It’s impossible to be “good with girls” when your whole personality seethes with negativity towards everything, most of all yourself

This is the root problem for young men today, it goes beyond the incel label, they are cynical & blackpilled

It’s low energy, and its repellant You can analyze the issues with young men myriad ways

But they all trace back to a low energy, scornful view of life

There is no courage or fun to be had with hopeless men

I find the current social media culture to have a feminizing effect on the male psyche

The constant need to demonstrate ones success, the peacocking, the belief that fame is necessitous to make money

It creates a dynamic of a man demanding constant attention... There is nothing masculine about it.

The belief that a mans achievements should speak for themselves, this is a valid idea

Your competency and reputation precede you, you are talked about, but this is downstream effect, not a goal of and in itself

BRIG 20 EXERCISES:

These are the best isolation exercises to perform if safety and joint health are of paramount concern

They are as low risk as training gets

This list covers the entire body

1. The Decline Press

This can be done with cables or a decline bench Doug preferred the DB version,

Some gyms have a decline bench, some do not

The decline does not need to be steep, he came to favor a 5-15 degree angle at most

Nor do you need to have terrible fitness

A LOT of men who think they’re reasonably healthy have high blood pressure High blood pressure doesn’t have obvious symptoms

For all the manosphere talk of women hitting the wall

The average man at 30 is overweight, skinny fat, low testosterone, dick is broken from porn consumption, and his "hot guy days" were back when he was in high school

Women hit a wall, Men hit a ditch I like the celebrity examples that get pulled out whenever this conversation comes up

None of you are Brad Pitt or Leo or Tom Cruise

Get fucking real with yourselves

There is some research showing that morning exercise (cardio or lifting) increase fat oxidation the rest of the day

Also research showing a nutrient partitioning effect

Basically, if you work out before breakfast, your body is less likely to store fat Does this mean that energy intake doesn’t matter?

No. Not in the slightest

But the old bodybuilding practice of fasted cardio in the morning, it’s not without merit
