It’s 1:10 AM and I just finished my workout.
‘twas yet another ass-kicker, but not in the way you would expect.
And let me tell you, I am BUZZED.
Not from dope, either. At least not from dope you have to buy.
I get my dopa for free. My brain releases mega-doses everyday when I do exercises that don’t appear to require much at all. Yet, they do.
I’d love to tell you more in this email, but I’m going to practice discernment and keep my yap shut, for now, even though I’m bursting at the seams to reveal more.
Suffice it to say that in the western “whirld,” we tend to think of strength training as lifting something heavy. Pick up a heavy weight. Lift a rock. Carry something big.
Nothing wrong with the above – yet, this way of attaining strength is one-sided and limited.
How do I know?
Because as you’re “getting stronger” you’re also getting weaker.
After you lift a heavy weight, you are not stronger. You are weaker.
But based upon the way I train, that doesn’t happen. I am stronger at the end of a workout than I was at the beginning. I don’t lose strength; I gain it.
It may make no sense when you first hear the above, but when you understand that excess physical tension is the enemy of elite performance, and lifting heavy things creates tension, you have the beginnings of the idea.
Most people in today’s world (yes, I have two spellings for the word), carry a ton of excess tension throughout their entire body, especially in the traps, neck and shoulders.
Excess tension is similar to putting on excess flabbage.
It’s easy to add more, but getting rid of it is a chore.
I’ll be covering more on this subject this month for members of the Matt Furey Inner Circle, and perhaps finally releasing a book or course on the subject later in the year.
And remember the mantra…
Kick ass – take names.
