Why You Should Invest In a Personal TrainerSep 13, 2022
This classic lift targets your glutes and hamstrings, plus it’s one of the best total-body exercises you can do.
Here's a step-by-step lesson to do the Barbell Deadlift with perfect form every time:
1. With your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, roll the barbell against your shins. Bend at your hips and knees and grab the bar with an overhand grip, your hands just beyond shoulder width.
2. 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.
3. Your arms should be straight throughout the movement. You never want the bar to move away from your body.
4. Remember to keep your entire body tight and squeeze your glutes like you’re squeezing water out of a sponge.
Coaching Tip: 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.
Want to know the truth about getting in shape?
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 DESTROY 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.
And then read below...
When you consistently take action, it has a compounding effect.
Similar to the power of compound interest.
You see, compound interest is the addition of interest to the principal sum of a loan or deposit.
Or in other words, interest on interest.
It is the result of reinvesting interest, rather than paying it out, so that interest in the next period is then earned on the principal sum plus previously accumulated interest.
Think about this in terms of re-investing in your health.
The actions that you take today give you something to build on tomorrow.
And when you have wins, you get the critical momentum that keeps you going.
The progress that you make encourages you to keep doing the boring work.
You know, things like smart training, mindful nutrition, getting quality sleep, and managing stress.
The obstacles that you find along the way help you to find opportunities that you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
The lessons that you learn from your mistakes prepare you for when you are in a similar situation in the future.
The strength that you build through persistent training increases your capacity.
Every book you read, all the reflection you do, every single action you take.
Collectively it makes a difference... well beyond each individual action.
Just imagine what this looks like day after day, month after month, a year, a lifetime.
Imagine the impact you can have if you persistently keep taking small actions that you know will have a cumulative effect over a long period of time.
You can achieve all you desire.
All it takes is consistent small actions.
Why You Should Invest In a Personal Trainer
As a leader, you really only have one job.
It’s to make quick and effective decisions.
Oftentimes, when people run into trouble, it's because they're freezing up when it’s time to make a decision.
They act like a deer in headlights when it’s time to decide whether to go left or right.
And like the deer who freezes up when a car is coming at them, they get hurt.
I don’t want that to happen to you.
Here’s the strategy behind making quick and effective decisions.
It’s called the 40/70 Rule.
It’s something that General Colin Powell talks about in his book.
Let me explain how it works:
Don’t make a decision with less than 40% of the information.
And if you wait to get 70% or more information, you took too long.
In other words if you WAIT to have 100% of the information you need to make a decision, then it’s likely going to be over for you.
This 40/70 rule is what separates successful men and women over the age of 40, from their peers.
And it will save you and your family.
Especially during chaotic times.
The 40/70 Rule can be used on everything.
The key here is to learn to make fast decisions and know how to pivot after a poor decision.
That’s how successful leaders seem to always win.
I used the 40/70 Rule at Arangio Athletic Fitness in 2007 when I noticed many over-40 men and women wanted to get healthy but were not conveniently located to us.
We built the best online personal trainer to help Allentown personal training clients in our neighborhood, but also clients from around the globe.
And I did this with only 40% of the information.
If I had waited to get 70% or more details, we would not be able to help our clients 24/7/365 from anywhere you have an internet connection.
I share this with you because I’m seeing too many over-40 men and women struggling with paralysis by analysis.
And it’s costing them their happiness, and in some cases, their actual lives.
Here’s how you can start making quicker decisions.
Like a muscle, rapid decision making gets strong the more you use it.
Right now, your “Decision Muscle” is weak.
Once again, to make it stronger, you need to use it more.
Your “Decision Making Muscle” will get stronger by making quick decisions on small things.
Like the shorts or shirt, you wear tomorrow.
Or what to eat for dinner tonight.
Do this for 30 days, and you’ll see the difference in your life and the lives of everyone who is counting on you.
You’ll solve problems quicker.
You’ll be an effective leader.
And you'll live the life you desire and deserve.
