Strength Training and the Success Habit

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Couple of quick things, and then we'll
talk training.

1. The John Grimek Course

Will be mailed this week, not sure when.
Depends on how fast the printer can run
the copies. And yes, there's still time
to reserve your copy and grab the pre-
publication bonuses:

2. My Dinosaur Training Seminar

My four-week audio seminar -- a/k/a distance
learning -- on Dinosaur Training starts this
coming Saturday. For details, and to reserve
your spot in the seminar, go here:

If you already signed up, please shoot me an
email and give me your name, age and training
experience, how you hears about the course,
what you'd like to get from the course, etc.

Right now we have s fairly small group, so it
will be a Masters Class for those who participate,
with more individual attention than if we had
a huge number of students.

And now -- as they say -- let's talk training.

Last week, we talked about boot camp. And I noted
that the boot camp model -- which relies on the
instructor yelling and shouting to "Run Faster!"
has a fatal flaw.

Namely, it doesn't teach you to be a self-motivator.
It teaches you to rely on external motivation.

That's fine for beginners, but a good coach -- a
good teacher -- a good instructor -- knows that
you need to learn how to self-motivate. And that
becomes part of the process.

Strength training is an interesting and unique
activity. You work incredibly hard -- and sometimes
you really have to push yourself -- and if you can't,
or won't, then you won't be very successful.

If you think about it, there are very few activities
where EFFORT is so directly related to success. You
can't sweet talk a barbell. You either lift it, or
you don't.

As a result, strength training has a unique ability
to increase your mental strength just as much as it
increases your physical strength. Do it right, and
you'll develop your power of concentration to a
degree far above that of the average person. Do it
right, and you'll increase your self-confidence,
your initiative, and your determination. Do
it right, and you'll increase your self-control.

Do your training the right way, by setting goals
and working inexorably toward their accomplishment.
When you do, you'll develop what I call The Success
Habit -- which is nothing more nor less than a
supreme belief in your ability to achieve your
goals.That's something that most people don't
have -- and it's one of the most important benefits
of your training.

So when you train, and it gets tough -- remember this:

Tough is good.

Tough is what you want.

Tough is what makes you strong.

As always, thanks for reading and have a great day.
If you train today, make it a good one!

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik
