“S.F.T” the KEY to Getting Men Better Results?
There are a lot of gurus out there telling you they'll get you in shape with the latest: 10,000 swing challenge, calorie-torching “HIIT” workout... and all kinds of nonsense.
When you see this... put the blinders on!
These are distractions keeping you from the legacy-grade work you need to get done.
Sure you can blast your body with all kinds of crazy random workouts and HIIT sessions… and see results.
But how long can you maintain this effort?
And can you pin point WHERE the results came from?
(My guess is no)
Before you know it... you’re burnt out, weight has packed back on, you’re feeling “drained & "dinged up”, and now dread the idea of working out.
In the end, you throw your hands in the air and figure, “I guess I’ll do some cardio instead” to stay in shape.
Am I right?
A few things have changed the 10-20 years.
People are more confused than ever before... and it's not your fault.
The multi-billion dollar industry that is fitness... does an amazing job at confusing people. Everyday a new “guru” pops up on your FB feed talking about the latest “discovery” for fat loss.
(There are NO shortcuts BTW)
You're no longer sure who or what you can trust anymore... making it harder and harder to achieve your goals.
Pretty much, trust is at an all-time low.
And this's why I believe a “less is more” approach in a...
Strength-Focused Training Environment...
... is the key to seeing massive results in 2020 and beyond. The main components of Strength-Focused Training are:
So let's break it down.
Here are the 3 things you need to keep in mind if you want to harness the power of S.F.T... to take your life and physical health to the next level.
So you can focus on the now, be more present, and enjoy the precious moments with your family.
(and I kinda think it's non-optional)
Strength is skill
Approach your strength training as a “ practice” and NOT as a “workout”.
When you do this... you improve your technical skill and are able to train harder, more ofter... and stay as fresh as possible (which leads to faster and sustainable results).
You begin to look forward to your workouts and no longer look at them like, “ugh, I still need to workout today."
A Strength-Focused Training session becomes your therapy for the day... and helps you focus your energy and intentions.
Which leads me to my next point…
Not enough people talk on this. Being intentional allows you to slip into a meditative state - transforming your training into an enjoyable experience... which leads to you being more consistent and seeing results long term.
The hidden benefits?
To my point above - an elevation in skill.
The more skilled you are, the more weight you can lift... resulting in more work getting done while staying as fresh as possible. Which leads faster and sustainable results.
Being more intensional...
helps you focus on the ONE THING you can apply to your next set to make it even better than the preceding set.
Intentions compound... producing and an enjoyable and hyper-effective practice - making the experience more enjoyable.
Which means you’ll be more consistent with your workouts.
Recovery, Recovery, Recovery
If results are important to you - next to training for strength - recovery should be your greatest concern.
If you can’t recover - who cares if you went H.A.M. the other day in your training? In the middle of a 10,000,000,000 swing challenge - if you can’t recover, what’s the point?
A Strength-Focused Training environment allows you to train hard (even daily)... without skimping on recovery.
If you wanna live a life of purpose, get off the sideline and lead your family from the front... you MUST build recovery into your training.
And a Strength-Focused Training strategy is the key to getting there.
This is definitely NOT an exhaustive list on Strength-Focused Training... as there's a lot more strategy to it (of which you can learn more of here in my community FB group).
But this is a good start to get you moving in the right direction.

5 easy-to-follow principles every man must understand if they wanna get in great shape, look better, feel better, and have more time for themselves... so they can live a life of purpose and lead their family by example.
Dead on as usual. I was wrapped up in the HIIT style training for a while. Saw great results but just could never sustain it long term. Even tried to do the “easy” versions to increase the longevity but I am 42 and my body just felt wrecked. Worst off, my raw strength never really improved.
Trying to go back to the basics which lead me down the road to here. Loving the change.
Nice man! Glad you’re reaping the benefits. There’s “basics” and “advanced” basics 😉
Have a great one and happy new year!!
