Training: Intensity

15 Intensity

There´s no other way to get amazing results, how hard you train will determine your results, if you give half of your energy you´ll get average or mediocre results, please don´t settle for less than what you deserve.

Getting in shape and getting an amazing physique and sustain it is simple but not easy, what you need to do is simple… it´s simple said that done. For guys who hate to feel that physical pain when working out it won´t be easy to get in shape. We all want to have an amazing body but not  all are willing to put the time and effort needed, not all are going to suffer in the gym and train as hard as they can to get what they really want.

This is the reason why most people don´t achieve anything worth having. Everything worth having takes time and sacrifices so are you willing to do whatever it takes, and to make some sacrifices to achieve your goal? If your answer is yes then there are no excuses in the gym. My workouts are not going to kill you or leave you breathless so I need you to train as hard as you can.

Now there´s a limit, you know your limit, you know how hard you can go to avoid all type of injuries and accidents, don´t let your ego get on your way, it doesn´t matter what everyone is doing what matters is what you´re doing.

It´s not only about working hard, you need to work smart there´s no reason to work hard if what you´re doing doesn´t work, you´ll be just wasting your time and effort. You need to be effective and efficient in this point I´m making half of the work for you, I´m sharing with you everything you need to know from nutrition, training, mindset, sleep and stress; the best tools you can use for each of them to get the best results. If you follow what I share with you you´re half of the way, you´ll be working smart now the second part depends on you. I´m giving you everything you need but I can´t put the time and effort for you, you need to do it.

You need to do the workouts and feel the pain, think of it as the pain of change, that the stimulus saying to your body to change, to get leaner and grow there´s no other way.

Love the pain, fall in love with the process and enjoy the workout, specially cardio. It´s easier to enjoy resistance training and lifting weight or doing bodyweight exercises just by seeing what you´re capable of, doing the hardest versions of bodyweight exercises motivates you to stay leaner because you´ll find out that the leaner you are the easier it is to do them. With compound movements you can become addicted, just by thinking how much more could you lift makes it more enjoyable but you need to keep your ego out and don´t get crazy. Don´t try to lift more just to impress someone it´s so easy to get injured if you go by your ego.

How hard can you go? How much weight can you lift? How long are you willing to go hard? Can you go harder next time? You are the only one who knows if you gave all or if you could have gone harder, if you could have done one more rep, there´s a slight edge between how hard can you go and your ego getting on the way. Get strong in a safe way, focus on making every exercise and every rep as safe as possible.

My goal is to get you stronger and help you achieve your fitness goal by improving body composition but even when you won´t feel like dying compared with other programs I need you to train hard, to be focused on what you´re doing and to put the  effort needed every workout to get the amazing results you want.

If it´s hard for you to get through the physical pain every workout you need to work on your mindset, your body will achieve whatever you set your mind to, if you have a strong mindset where you can control your thoughts, your feelings you´ll be able to pass that physical pain. You get stronger in the gym and outside the gym.

Showing up is not enough, you need to put in the hard work, the amount of work you put at every workout is the results you´ll get, if you give 100% you´ll get 100% results.

It´s not enough to show up you need to make every workout as intense as possible the level of intensity varies from person to person depending on different factors, if you have an injury on one leg you may not work with the same level of intensity as you work chest or back. If you are starting the level of intensity won´t be the same as if you have been training for some years and you have more experience.

You  can use little volume and a lot of intensity and get great results, the amount of volume and frequency will depend on your goals, this variables will change also the amount of cardio you do if you want to speed up results but intensity needs to be high always.

Training and exercising when you have clear goal is not about making friends, if you just want to do some physical activity then it´s ok but if you´re looking to be the best version of yourself you need to go in there with your goal in mind, many people have the right program but are not working as hard as they can, they don´t get the results they want and they blame the program.

If you train hard you´ll get results with any program but most people stays the same for months or years, for me it´s discouraging to spend time working out daily to look the same, we´re looking for progress and results, I can share with you all the information but if you don´t apply it and don´t work hard the results will be minimum or will take more time to achieve your goal.

Make everyday count, make every workout count, go there and give your best, push as hard as you can but be aware of your limits. Try to be better than yesterday and don´t pay attention to what the others are doing, focus on your thing.

The mind-muscle connection can have a huge impact in many guys or girls, this technique helps them focus all their energy on what they´re doing making this a great technique to keep intensity high and avoid injuries.

It would mean so much to me if you share this post with your friends and family and if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, together we can help millions live a better life.
