Hail to the Dinosaurs!
One of the secrets of successful
training is to work hard but to
have fun. That's why we call it
THE IRON GAME.
Note the use of the word: GAME.
A game is something you play to
have fun. To relax. To have a
Most people don't get that. And
that includes Dinos and non-Dinos,
The non-Dinos don't get the part
about working hard -- nor do they
get the part about having fun. They
tend to view exercise as drudgery.
They don't like to train. They
"work out" (interesting term)
solely to achieve a particular
result (usually, to lose weight).
But they don't enjoy the process.
And even though they always moan
about how hard it is, they don't
Dinos understand the importance of
hard work -- and Dinos enjoy their
The problem for some Dinos is that
they sabotage the HAVE FUN part of
the game by driving themselves crazy

workouts. Make training a habit.

Train your legs, hips, back and
shoulder girdle extra hard. These
are the key muscle groups for
Herculean strength and

Stay positive. Be cheerful. Cultivate a
happy mind. Don't let little things throw
you off track. And don't waste energy on
the small stuff.
Training should be the highpoint of your
day. Make it hard -- but make it fun!
As always, thanks for reading and have a
great day. If you train today, make it a
