Outdoor Training, Grit and Your Ability

Outdoor Training, Grit and Your Ability-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Streaming Radio 24/7 Show Welcomes John Johnson to the Broadcast. John is a Strongman, Stone Lifter and Personal Trainer at 500 Fitness. Eric and John start the show right off with why we train outdoors. Outdoor training has so many benefits both physically and mentally. The idea that you use what nature has presented you is a big change from the regular gym atmosphere. You are no longer in a controlled environment and are now in a primal setting. Let your imagination run wild and create your own outdoor challenge.  Eric and John talk about lifting stones, chins off tree branches and lifting tree limbs of every size that have fallen. There are endless things to do when you are outdoors. We talk about the ability to thrive and survive outdoors no matter what the conditions are. We also talk about the mentality of the trainer and the trainee. Your ability and determination to get the job done falls primarily on your shoulders. Its up to the trainer to design the program you’ll need to set you up for success but the bottom line is you. When good feedback is delivered to your trainer it inspires both of you to dig deeper and reach up higher. We talk about the trends out there and the grit its going to take for men to become the staple of society again. Men must grow a set of balls again and become the leaders we were meant to be. Get your sons and daughters back with nature, disconnect from the gadgets, lift some stones and start working the land again. Eric and John talk about the frame work of structure and how kids eat it alive. It’s usually the adults that have the problem with it. We talk about the children in our families and through exercise structure we build a unity with each other that lasts into eternity. Eric and John finish off with the little things we have to do to get the thinking goal machine cooking in your mind. Maybe you raise the stone a little higher when you lift it, add another ten pounds to the bar when you squat it or just let out a mind blowing scream when you have lifted something that’s had your number for a long time. Get outdoors, grit it out and use your ability to its fullest. It’s really up to you. Do you have it or not? Motivation and Muscle Streaming Radio 24/7 Connects Your Brain To Your Brawn. Enjoy!

Power,STRENGTH TRAINING,WEIGHTLIFTING

Power-Building Body Power!!!!

Building Body Power!!!!

by Joe Mills

Before a champion is able to press 400 or bench 500 pounds there is one simple ingredient he must possess – Power!

Bob Bednarski has been a good Olympic lifter for a long time. When I first began coaching him about seven years ago he seemed to have all the ingredients necessary to become an Olympic champion except one. He had the desire, determination and form but he was lacking in basic power.

I worked out a routine for him designed to increase strength and raw power in a relatively short time and I told him to incorporate it periodically into his regular training.

Bob trained on the system for four weeks and then went back to his regular training methods and found that he was able to break all of his personal records. What caused the sudden increase in strength? The answer was simply that by changing his training and using strength movements and lifts that he had never used, he developed lifting muscles which he very seldom used.

George Pickett is another example. For years he was a good lifter but not great, then as a result of training on power lifts his strength increased at an incredible rate and suddenly he became one of the world’s strongest men!

Recently Bob Bednarski has had to lift against giant men of 300-plus pounds such as Dube, Pickett and Zhabotinsky.

Bob once again began to train on the power lifts and the results became evident. On May 4, 1968, at the Region Two championships in Washington, he made the highest press in the world – a world’s record of 451 pounds and became the first man to press 200 pounds over bodyweight.

What power exercises does Bob do to build his tremendous strength? I often drove down to York to watch him work out. One week I saw him do a terrific amount of power lifting and I believe this is the secret of his fantastic power – the power that gives him world record performances.

Here is the workout I saw him do recently one week:

Monday

Shrug: 325 x 3 sets of 5 reps, 375 x 3 x 5, 425 x 3 x 5
Regular Squat: 315 x 1 x 5, 375 x 1 x 5, 450 x 1 x 5,
500 x 1 x 5, 550 x 1 x 5, 600 x 1 x 3
Bob then goes into his regular weightlifting session.

Wednesday

Front Squat: 315 x 1 x 5, 375 x 1 x 5, 325 x 1 x 5, 475 x 1 x 5
Bench Press: 205 x 1 x 5, 300 x 1 x 5, 350 x 1 x 5, 375 x 1 x 5,
400 x 1, 425 x 1

Friday

Incline Press: 205 x 1 x 5, 255 x 1 x 5, 285 x 1 x 3, 305 x1 x 3
Seated Press: 205 x 1 x 3, 255 x 1 x 3, 285 x 1 x 3, 305 x 3 x 2

Saturday

Military Press: 205 x 1 x 3, 245 x 1 x 3, 275 x 1 x 3, 300 x 1 x 3, 325 x 1
Deadlift: 315 x 1 x 3, 405 x 1 x 3, 500 x 1 x 3, 575 x 1 x 3, 675 x 1, 700 x 1

That week taught me that if you want power you’ve got to go out and get it. In all my years of coaching I’ve never seen anyone work as hard as Bob.

INSPIRATION,STORIES,STRENGTH TRAINING,weight loss goals

Healthy-FBC Words of Inspiration!!!!

 

Healthy-FBC Words of Inspiration!!!!

To get healthy you must think healthy. By this I mean ,you and only you have the power to change your thinking. This besides commitment are the two most important steps you’ll need to change your behavior.

If you need to lose weight change your diet. If you need to get stronger challenge yourself to a massive goal you’ve been running from. If you want to do more push-ups or pull-ups make a plan and execute it. If your not sure their is plenty of material out there to read and study. If your still not sure seek someone out that can help you with your goals.

The bottom line is your not alone and there is always someway to get things done. Remember your health is only a thought away. All of that power is contained between your ears. Why don’t you give it a try. This is a phrase I’ve heard for years and it is so true:“Health is Wealth!” Good Luck!!!!
