Resolutions, Schmesolutions!

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions.

I believe in setting goals -- and then
working relentlessly to achieve them.

I also believe in setting goals that are
objective and measurable. Don't say, "I
want to get strong." Say, "I want to
press 200 pounds, bench press 300 pounds,
squat 400 pounds and deadlift 500 pounds."

Don't say, "I want to get in shape." Say,
"I want to lose 20 pounds of flab -- and
gain 20 pounds of muscle."

Or whatever. You get the idea.

I also believe in goals that cover the
entire year (or longer) and that you can
break down into a series of smaller

For example, you might set a goal of
adding 50 pounds to your press and your
bench press, and 100 pounds to your squat
and deadlift, over the course of the
coming year.

You have 52 weeks to get it done -- so
that's a gain of one pound a week on the
press and the bench press, and two pounds
a week on the squat and deadlift.

Or, if you prefer, it's a monthly gain
of 4 pounds on the press and bench
press -- and 8 pounds on the squat
and deadlift.

Gaining weight or losing weight is the
very same way. Set a goal for the entire
year, and then break it into months and

The sub-goals are important because they
help keep you on track. And they help keep
you motivated. Every time you achieve a
sub-goal, you achieve success, Over time,
success becomes a habit. Your confidence
soars. And that makes you train harder
than ever. It becomes a cycle of constant
positive re-enforcement. Powerful stuff.

As far as workouts go, you'll find them
in my books and courses. Dinosaur
Training -- Dinosaur Bodyweight
Training -- Strength, Muscle and Power --
Chalk and Sweat -- Gray Hair and Black
Iron -- Dinosaur Dumbbell Training --
and the rest of them.

So make the most of the new year. Set
goals -- and work relentlessly to achieve

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

Yours in strength,
