Hail to the Dinosaurs!
They say that where there's a will, there's
Kevin Halligan has proved it.
Kevin is one of our many Scottish Dinosaurs.
He couldn't find a gym with the right sort
of vibe -- an all-Dino vibe -- so he set
up shop at home.
Not in his basement.
Not in his garage.
In his backyard.
He has the basics. Barbell, plates and a
heavy0duty power rack.
And he trains outside all year round.
Even in the winter.
I got a note from Kevin earlier today.
He's planning to do one of my favorite
workouts -- Nothing But Squats.
You warm up, get loose, and get the blood
Then you do a warm-up set of squats.
Any style. Back squats, front squats,
bottom position squats, whatever.
Add weight and gradually work up to
Sets and reps are up to you.
And that's your whole workout -- Nothing
The beauty is that it allows you to focus
on one thing, and work it into the ground.
And squats are a good thing to focus on.
Now that you know about the Nothing But
Squats workout, let's go back to Kevin.
He's standing outside next to his power
The bar is loaded for bottom position
And it's cold. There are gale force winds
in Scotland today. And it's snowing.
And there's our Dinosaur -- bundled up
in several layers -- squatting hard and
heavy in his backyard power rack.
I may have to change the name of the workout.
We'll call it the Nothing But Squats, Gale
Force Winds and a Scottish Winter Workout.
Anyhow, Kevin hit it Dino style -- hard and
heavy -- and he had a great one.
If you train today, do the very same thing.
Yours in strength,
P.S. You can see other leg specialization
programs in Chalk and Sweat -- including John
Grimek's squat routine. Extra good for packing
on serious muscle mass:
P.S. 2. My other books and courses are right
P.S. 3. Thought for the Day: "Focus on one
thing at a time and and do it perfectly."
