10 Tips to Rev Up your Workouts!

1. Spend 10 minutes a day visualizing your workouts
in full, complete and vivid detail -- to the point where
you see and feel the sweat dripping down your face
as you squat, push and pull.

a. 15 or 20 minutes is better. Split it up into two
sessions if you need to.

2. When you train, concentrate deeply on each and
every rep. "Become" the rep.

a. In other words, shut out the rest of the world.
Go deep inside the rep.

3. After each set, review your performance and focus
on the next set.

a. See Dinosaur Training and Dinosaur Bodyweight
Training for more details on the all-important
mental aspects of strength training.

4. Wear your power color when you train. Everyone
has a power color (or colors). You feel stronger when
you wear your power color.

a. For me, power colors are black, navy blue and gray.

b. We also have colors that make us feel weak. Don't
wear those! (For example, I avoid brown or tan.)

5. Focus on adding weight to the bar, BUT always
maintain perfect form. If in doubt, focus on form.

a. Never add weight at the expense of maintaining
perfect form.

6. Rest pause training builds serious strength and

a. See Strength, Muscle and Power for details
and suggested workouts.

7. Abbreviated training works better than anything
else for the vast majority of trainees.

a. See Dinosaur Training, Strength, Muscle and
Power, and Chalk and Sweat for abbreviated
workouts that will build plenty of real world
strength and muscle.

b. Many trainees -- especially older trainees -- will
do best on ultra-abbreviated training. See Gray Hair
and Black Iron for details and workouts.

8. Eat smart. This means the right kind of real food.

a. That's the whole focus of Knife, Fork, Muscle -- real
food to help build lifelong strength and health.

b. Learn what foods work for YOU. That's one of the
important keys to long-term success.

b. Supplements will NOT make up for a poor diet.
You need to learn to eat right. When you do, the
results will amaze you.

9. Don't obsess about your training. Just do it. The
most important thing is to train regularly and
consistently. It all adds up over time.

10. Have FUN when you train. Fun is important. Your
training days should be the best days of the week --
and your workouts should be some of the most
enjoyable things you do.

a. Yes, hard work and challenging workouts are

b. And yes, it's a shame that most people don't
have a clue about this . . .

c.  . . . which is why it's good to train hard and heavy
and old-school, and set an example for others.

So there you have it -- 10 tips to rev up your
workouts. I hope you enjoyed them -- and I
hope you use them.

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