How to Boost Your EnergyJun 10, 2021
Today I'll give you a step-by-step lesson on an exercise that targets your glutes and hamstrings, plus it’s one of the best total-body exercises you can do.
But first, have you ever heard the phrase, “time is money?”
Truth is, time is more than money; it’s the currency of life, and it’s a finite resource.
When it's gone, it's gone.
You've likely invested in calendars, organizers, apps, and books on time management.
Maybe you use these tools to arrange your schedule better, so you "have more time."
But here's the problem:
Your days are numbered. My days are numbered too.
You can increase many things; however, there’s nothing you can do to create time.
Time is a fixed resource—the number of minutes in a day, days in a week, and weeks in a year all tick away in spite of your efforts to control it.
This is why you should focus on something called energy management.
If you want to get more done, make a greater impact, and truly lead a life of significance, you need to increase your energy capacity.
People who grow to their maximum potential don’t sit back and wait for things to happen; they go out and make things happen, and that requires energy.
How to Boost Your Energy
Use these five strategies to increase your ability to exert effort and get stuff done.
1. Live In Your “Gift Zone”
When you spend your time doing the things that you care about most, you will find yourself fully charged with energy.
What are the activities that make you say, “I was born to do this?”
That’s your gift zone.
Spend more time there.
For me, it's coaching via an in-person training session, a strategy call, or even an email lesson.
2. Invest In Family and Friends
A life of significance is not about having more money and more stuff.
It’s about creating experiences and memories with the people you care about most.
3. Add Value to Others
Helping others is a huge energy booster.
When you serve others by providing something that makes their day a little better, you enter what Ed Bastian calls the “virtuous circle”—you not only draw energy from having done something good for someone else, but you also get an energy boost from their response.
The secret to maximizing your quality of life is straightforward: Help others get what they want.
4. Invest in Your Physical Health
There’s no question that taking care of yourself—nourishing your body with clean, whole foods, exercising regularly, and getting plenty of quality sleep—is essential to optimizing your physical energy capacity.
And let’s face it, you can’t live up to your maximum potential if you are fat, sick, and out-of-shape.
Or if you’re dead.
5. Make Room for God
Once you realize that you’re human, you’re flawed, and your capacity for energy and strength is limited, you'll lean on God.
If you want to get re-energized in ways you can't begin to imagine, allow God to work in your life.

How to Burn More Fat with Deadlifts
Here’s the truth about losing abdominal fat: You need to lift weights in order to increase muscle tissue.
That's because muscle burns more calories than fat tissue.
It may sound counterintuitive but you must build more muscle to burn more fat.
You don’t need to starve yourself with very-low-calorie "diets" in order to lose fat and keep it off.
In fact, this is exactly how you ruin your metabolism.
You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on supplements either.
I’ll show you sustainable ways to achieve everything that supplements will, yet in a more cost-effective manner.
You don’t need to randomly change up your exercise routine nor do you need to spend hours of your time in the gym everyday.
These are both detrimental to your goals.
I’ll show you a better and more effective way of structuring your workouts that's backed by science and real results.
If you're ready to lose fat, get strong, and slow aging, add the Barbell Deadlift to your next training session.
Learn by Doing: Barbell Deadlift
Bend at your hips and knees and grab the bar with an overhand grip, your hands just beyond shoulder width.
With your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, roll the barbell against your shins.
Without rounding your lower back, pull your trunk back and up, thrust your hips forward, and as you stand up with the barbell, squeeze your glutes.
Lower the bar to the floor, keeping it as close to your body as possible.
Your arms should be straight throughout the movement.
You never want the bar to move away from your body.
Remember to keep your entire body tight and squeeze your glutes like you’re squeezing water out of a sponge.
Since everybody is shaped differently you’ll use a little trial-and-error to learn your best position once you grab the bar and start lifting.

Doing anything good in this life will be difficult.
It's amazing at how many times I hear losing fat and getting healthy is "next to impossible."
It may seem impossible, but you can do it. It may be very difficult, but that doesn’t need to hold you back.
It may be something that nobody else you know has done before, but you can be the first.
So, don’t be daunted by the challenge, get excited.
Don’t talk yourself out of going for it.
Because it may be seemingly impossible, but it can still be done.
If you have been thinking about getting control of your health, it's time.
When you take imperfect action, what you thought was "almost impossible" becomes your reality.
