The Power of One!

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

The Iron Game is all about numbers,
and to me, there's no number more
powerful than ONE.

Here's why.

When you do a set, you do it ONE rep at
a time. That's one of the keys to great

I don't mean you do nothing but singles.
I'm talking about your mental approach --
about how you focus on your training.

Let's say you're doing a set of five reps
in the squat.

You start by doing one rep -- and you give
it total and complete focus. You bring all
your power of concentration to bear on that
one rep -- and you perform it flawlessly
and perfectly.

You stand tall, breathe,  focus and do the
next rep.

And once again, you do it with focus --
and you do it perfectly.

You once again stand tall, breathe, and
focus -- and you do the third rep.

It's just like the first two: powerful and

And again, you stand tall, breathe and focus.

But now, you're getting tired -- and the
weight is feeling much, much heavier -- and
that's fine, because now you double or even
triple your focus -- and once again perform
a perfect rep in perfect form.

Four down -- ONE to go!

You stand tall, breathe and breathe again --
shake the sweat out of your eyes -- breathe
again -- focus -- focus -- focus --

--- and perform one more PERFECT squat.

You stand tall, rack the bar, and do your
victory dance.

That's how to train for great results --
by doing it one rep at a time.

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik
