How To Get The Body You’ve Always Wanted

Exercise Regularly!

Yes, it’s much easier than you think.  Consistency is key. Exercise a minimum of 3 – 4 times a week.  30 -45 minutes per session should be enough, as long as you’re incorporating full body exercises and some form of resistance.  Kettlebells happen to be the best overall tool I’ve found for body transformations.  Kettlebell training allows you to add resistance to full ranges of motion, while incorporating multiple muscle groups.

The trick is to either find something you enjoy or find a way to enjoy something that fulfills those requirements. Many people go out and waste a bunch of money buying fancy machines (9 times out of 10 they end up collecting dust and wasting space), thinking that the cost of the machine will force them to use it. They are wrong, and besides there is no machine that compares to or was made for your body.

Make it part of your daily routine. Do not let yourself skimp for at least a month or two. After that, it form into a habit.

While this isn’t going to move you from fatty to stud in the blink of an eye, the reality is that nothing will.  Ignore the hype on the commercials pushing the quick (lazy) fix which is likely to throw your body into shock or worse.

Don’t Eat Garbage!

It’s not rocket science.  Stay away from fast foods, pop/soda, candy, etc… The food we eat fuels our body.  Have you ever noticed how tired, lazy, and overweight fast food enthusiast are?  When you put poor fuel in your body, your body provides you with poor performance; i.e. no energy, sickness, disease, and in severe cases death.

I’m blown away at how poor the health in our society has become.  Obesity is a social epidemic? Really?  Well I guess so is laziness and stupidity.

If You Move, You’ll Improve; If You Don’t, You Won’t!

It’s that simple

Train Smart,



Don’t Be Afraid To Deadlift

Deadlifts are by far one of the best exercises for producing overall strength and lean muscle! 

When done correctly, deadlifting is easily one of the most effective exercises.  And believe it or not, women, this is the most powerful exercise for toning and shaping your back side, period!

Deadlifting is one of my favorite movements and a great exercise to use even if your only goal is to lose weight and look better.  It stimulates a lot of muscle, which helps to increase your fat-burning metabolism and build lean muscle. No machine could ever compare to the deadlift!

Long story short: If you want to transform your body and/or get stronger, then you should be deadlifting!

For those of you that don’t know what a deadlift is….you pick a weight up off the ground; sounds simple.  It’s a pretty common movement that we all perform throughout our lives.  However, many of us don’t do it properly and don’t train the movement. 

It’s important to Always respect the weight! 

There is a long list of benefits that come from deadlifting; strength, power, and grip.  Improving in these areas will make everything you do much easier, guaranteed.

Train Smart!
