How To Get Stronger (The Secret to Super Strength)

Good evening,

How to Get Stronger: The Secret to Super-Strength

In this issue, I’ll teach you the secret to super-strength. I hate using the term “secret”, because it sounds too marketing-y, but in this case, the word is warranted, because very few people know what it is.

The secret is: frequent, fresh and flawless.

What does this mean?

Here are the rules:

Pick only one movement that you want to get strong at. Don’t pick any more than one. So it can be a bench press, a squat, a deadlift, a pushup or anything else you can imagine.

Figure out the most amount of weight that you can lift for one repetition. Take 60-80% of that weight, and numerous times throughout the day, do 3-5 repetitions with it. You don’t have to specially go to the gym to do this (depending on the movement that you choose), as each time you do it, it will take only a minute or less.

Do this 6 times per week. Because you are using such low repetitions, and you are staying far away from fatigue, it really doesn’t tax your system too much.

And make sure that each repetition is perfect.

I picked up this simple, but brutally effective trick from the book “Naked Warrior” by Pavel Tsatsouline.

Why does it work so well? Think of strength as a skill. If you think of it that way, it becomes a lot clearer. What else is a skill? Putting in golf is one example, so let’s use that. If you’re a golfer trying to improve your putting, would you putt once a week for multiple hours until your technique is bad, your back is burning, and you’re tired? No, of course not. You practice just as long as it takes for your technique to stay flawless, and you stop practicing either when you get bored, tired, or your putting deteriorates ever so slightly. You repeat that multiple times per week. That’s exactly what frequent, fresh and flawless is. Apply it to strength training, and the same thing happens.

What kinds of results are possible?

I’ve used it myself with deadlifts, and I’ve been able to improve my deadlift strength from 260 pounds to 325 in a matter of 4 weeks. And at the time, I weighed only 132 pounds.

By the way, if you want to learn about the correct Deadlift Form: How to Deadlift, you can do so by clicking on it.

And here is where you can learn how to squat.

I’ve been able to do the human flag thanks to that approach, as well as the movements in my video titled \”Toronto Personal Trainer Shows What He Can Do.\”

By the way, this is not a method for putting on muscle mass. Increasing your strength and increasing your muscle mass isn’t necessarily the same thing. This method is best used to increase strength without increasing muscle mass. So you’ll be a lot stronger than you look.

Give it a try, and let me know how it goes.

Another Tip from Darlene

Last week, Darlene Hawkins contributed a great tip on how to overcome peer pressure when you’re trying to change your nutritional habits. She liked contributing so much that she has a good tip for this week as well.

This week’s tip is when you’re brushing your teeth, brush your tongue as well.

If you have a yellow-colored tongue, one of the reasons for it is plaque from your teeth (there are other reasons as well). And if the plaque is on your tongue, it will just go back to your teeth.

Who knew?

Until next week,

Igor.
