Strength training is the number one driver behind great physiques. And I also believe there is a much deeper benefit that comes with it; we cover this topic in Part 2 of the Miami Speech.
If you happened to miss Part 1 of the Miami Speech, you can catch up on it here. We discuss my thoughts on low carb/ketogenic style diets for fat loss.
If You’re Not Strength Training, You’re Not Improving
Consistently getting stronger is the most important thing you need to focus on in your training.
If not, you’re not moving forward.
My philosophy for building an incredible physique is to hone in on the least amount of effective volume, and always push for strength gains.
It doesn’t matter if you go into the gym and pump out tons of volume with drop sets or supersets on your chest if your bench press is only 150 lbs.
In each of the Kinobody Courses your training is honed in on producing the fastest rate of strength gains on your key lifts.
Which is also responsible for thousands of success stories… Take the Greek God Program for example, which is the Kinobody course that is crafted for the fastest rate of strength gains on your key lifts.
Stripping down your training to the most effective 4 to 5 exercises allows you to make continual progress. When you begin adding more and more exercises for a particular muscle group, how can you possibly continue getting stronger on all of them at once?
And we know progressive tension overload is the number one driver of muscle growth (Study) which is why I mentioned earlier that if you’re not consistently getting stronger, you aren’t doing anything with your efforts.
Applying this training principle when dieting for fat loss has the exact incredible results…
Muscle is a byproduct of strength. Getting insanely strong on your incline bench, weighted chins, and standing overhead press, for example, is going to give your chest, back, and shoulders the development they need to pop out and look awesome.
Combine that with a low body fat and you’ve cracked the code to building an awe inspiring physique.
Will Getting Stronger Actually Change Your Life?
Something special also happens when you are getting stronger in the gym…
Other than you becoming more and more chiseled, the commitment and effort that takes teaches you another lesson.
And with this lesson, you’ll notice your confidence going through the roof! You can then begin to take what you learn in the gym and this new found confidence and apply it to other areas of your life.
You can harness the power of learning grit, commitment, and confidence and tackle other areas of your life such as dating, relationships, your career or business.
Because building a great body isn’t enough. And I’m here to tell you to go after it all! And the easiest place to start is conquering your fitness goals.
