How to Get Back Into the Training Habit

The Dinosaur Files strength training and Iron Game journal will keep you motivated and inspired for regular, hard, serious, result-producing workouts.
Hail to the Dinosaurs!

I rec'd an email from a longtime
Dino who's been going through a
rough spot in his life - and has
gotten out of the training habit.

In fact, he's been out of training
for 5 or 6 months.

He's been doing the total coach
potato thing - too much TV and
too much lousy food.

He asked me what to do to get
back into his training.

Now, you may think this is an
unusual question.

But it's not.

I get this question more often
than you would imagine.

That's because Life is - well, it is
what it is. And sometimes, it sure
as heck ain't easy.

It can be tough sometimes. Things
can happen that make it very tough
to train - or perhaps make it
impossible to train.

The loss of a loved one. A bad

The loss of a job. An injury. Money
problems. having to work an extra
job to make ends meet. A family
member's severe illness.

We all have times when it's tough to train. The trick is to keep on training anyway - even if it's a short, fast, low-volume workout.

I know that sort of thing never
happens when you train at Muscle
Beach and do nothing but work on
your tan, train, eat, surf and work 
on your tan.

But Muscle Beach is a Fantasy
World, and Dinos live in the real
world - and things can be very
tough in the real world.

So how does our Dino get back
to training?

1. He makes a commitment to get
started -- TODAY.

1a. Not tomorrow. TODAY.

If you need to get back into shape, start TODAY. Not tomorrow, but TODAY!

2. He gives himself a very easy
workout to get back in the groove.

Something so fast and easy
there's no possible excuse
for missing a workout.

2a. For example, train 3x per
week. Each workout, do
a warm-up, then 5 x 5 in
ONE primary exercise,
some gut, grip and neck
work, and then go home.

2b. That's 4 progressively
heavier warm-up sets
and one work set -- and
not too heavy on the
work set.

2c. I know it doesn't sound
like much, but that's the

2d. 15 minutes of training
beats zero minutes of

3. He starts LIGHT so he doesn't
cripple himself with soreness, and
he gives himself the fun of making
good, steady gains from week
to week as he gradually builds
back up to where he was

4. He fills his mind with powerful,
inspiring, motivating thoughts and
images. Any of my books or courses --
or back issues of The Dinosaur Files --
will help.

4a. The Legacy of Iron books are super-

4b. And, of course, Dinosaur Training is
non-stop motivation from start to finish.

Dinosaur Training is the most motivating book you'll ever read. Many longtime Dinos have read and re-read it a dozen times.

5. He cleans up his diet. For now, drop
the junk food and get back to protein
and vegetables.

5a. Grab a copy of Knife, Fork,
, read the little monster and
follow theadvice to the letter.

5a. You'd be surprised how much a poor
diet can effect your outlook on life.

5b. There's no such thing as comfort
food. It can actually make you
depressed. Get your diet on track,
start training again, and you'll start
to feel better fast.

So there you have it. A quick and
easy, foolproof plan for getting back
on track after a long layoff.

Remember -- start TODAY -- and
get back to the Iron.

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

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik
